Qatar Day 1 Test times

Vinales at the sharp end on Day - he goes well around Qatar.

Dovi looking good

1 25 M. VIŅALES 1:55.053
2 4 A. DOVIZIOSO +0.051
3 29 A. IANNONE +0.054
4 5 J. ZARCO +0.133
5 99 J. LORENZO +0.370
6 42 A. RINS +0.379
7 46 V. ROSSI +0.379
8 9 D. PETRUCCI +0.475
9 35 C. CRUTCHLOW +0.483
10 93 M. MARQUEZ+0.492

Probably foolish to bet against MM for the title though

Another weekend to listen to everyone else complain about the "advantage" (a.k.a. knowledge and all around better product) of Ducati and Kawasaki....

But hey,... instead of the other manufacturers making a competitive bike,... lets penalize Ducati and Kawasaki to "even the field"....

Sorry for the rant... Really looking forward to watching another race like last weeks! Go Marquez!!!

I think you may be confusing WSBK with Motogp......agree with your comments though.

Yea, I was referring to WSBK.... it just gets under my skin.... very very badly. I’ve grown up in the pits of NHRA and World of Outlaws. It’s laughable that they are restricting specific manufacturers just to “even the field”. If I were a part of ANY of the other teams I would feel like a total failure. We rose the bar,.... if you want to compete,... get innovative and push the bar higher!

Unfortunately it’s all about bums on seats or eyes on a monitor. That’s what the sponsors want and that’s how the cash flows.

The crowds want to see close racing not total domination...
