Pedrosa is usually pretty good at testing so I think this shows that Lorenzo is very much on top of his game right now and was not just riding on Rossi's coat-tails at Yamaha - if last year didn't confirm it enough!!
I'm pretty sure that as soon as Stoner gets on he'll blitz the lot though.
It's a long lap at Sepang and 5th fastest certainly looks more competitive than last year... just don't want to get my hopes up as there's been far too many false-dawns
I would imagine (hope?), with a new bike, there is much for Ducati to learn and much more to come? Probably more to come from Ducati than Honda/Yamaha for example?
