    P means in Pits when session ended.
    Chequered flag means they were on track and were shown the flag when it was end of session

    In fact I'll go 1 step further and say Vinales will be a world motogp champion. Whether its this year or not I'm not sure but methinks he will be MM's most consistent competition.

    MM & VR will, dust him up early,
    After his sookie at MM in testing, its a given.

    Rossi still bringing up 2015. At least he now admits that Lorenzo was going to beat him anyway.

    Yes but Lorenzo counts as they. He didn't have the pace to match Lorenzo at the end no matter how anyone looks at it. I don't know how it can't be an admission to what many of us have been saying that he was losing that year regarldless of any perceived(and it was only perceived) interference.

    Been too long.

    Excited about this year is an understatement.

    Lay your bets down now

    Motogp
    Marquez

    Moto 2
    Morbidelli

    Moto3
    Not sure.

    It's always hard to tell with unknown young talent coming into Moto3. If Romano Fenati can pull his bloody head in after the VR46 team dropped him mid last season, he might be in with a chance. But my money would be on Enea Bastianini.

    Pretty quiet maybe unfroze to early?

    Oh well chicken toe warmerz all round, going back to hibernate for a little more.

    Yeah i find moto3 hard to predict. Especially since ten left us with SFA coverage to be able to follow.

    Moto 2 is a bit of a question mark with top riders moving on. Im going Morbidelli after his form late last year. Young Marquez is his team mate so he might pop in with Luthi.

    Motogp is all about vin and marquez at the moment and i think the younger vin has got marquez a little worried with his outnout pace hence the following in last testing. If he whinges about his honda being a shit ride again i'll choke him out.

    Only thing im dreading is the Spanish anthem.

    Blackjacks last year for current ride. Any thoughts for his future?

    He said in a recent interview he's been approached by other teams wanting his services. He said he'd like to stay with Honda and that it's not certain that Pedrosa will stay with Repsol Honda after 2018. He thinks that might be an option...I think he's dreaming. Looking at the current crop of talent that's come from Moto2, I think any chance that Jack had with Repsol Honda has sailed.

    Folger, Rins, Lowes and maybe Zarco (who is 27, so might be too old), are going to serve their two years and in 2019, I think both Factory Yamaha and Repsol Honda will both be looking for second riders to team with Vinales and Marquez.

    Everyone seems to be a bit rough towards Miller. Last year he rode the 2015 bike that everyone including Marquez struggled on, the engine wasn't a huge amount better either. He was injured through most of the season but did manage to get a win and a few top 10s when there was 8 factory bikes on the grid. In his first year straight from moto3 on finished as the first POS Honda customer bike beating Nicky Hayden who's a former world champ.

    He's younger than Folger, Lowes and Zarco. The advantage that Zarco and Folger have had so far in testing is they're on a much easier to ride bike while Jack was riding the Honda when it was at its worst. This year will give a good account of where he is at and if the high rating other GP riders give him is all hot air or not. Hes on the 2016 chassis which by all accounts is a great chassis but he will have the new Big Bang engine so we will see how good he can be if he stays healthy. He still has plenty of upside for Honda even if it's giving him a deal similar or the same as Cals.

    Any ideas how his testing went for long runs? And i should ask is there anywhere where riders long runs are posted? I get nothing out of the gp sites (crashnet,etc) testing times as they publish the fastest lap.

    I just hope he has a good start to the season. Was going to say cracking start but on second thoughts...
