FP2 - Redding fastest, Viņales falls but OK & Rossi the slowest Yamaha.

Let's wait for FP3 - that's when things get serious.

BB was off the pace in pre season testing compared to his teammate. Today Oliveira had a good ride on the KTM ending in fourth. Hope BB get to grips with the moto 2 bike and start working himself up into at least top ten finishes.

In pre season testing he had a relatively small fall, but unfortunately the bike fell on his left arm, breaking the forearm. After the op, his recovery wasn't up to scratch and he had to go in again, I believe. So that put a dent in his preparation.
May the bridges I burn light the way...

I have stared following the Moto GP from beginning 2016 and are thus a total noob.
Please help with the following questions:

1. What is the story (pro's and con's ) behind a steel frame versus a trellis frame?
2. It looks like the Ducatti's are faster than the other manufacturers,  why is this, does Ducatti know something that the other manufacturers does not?

Thanks

#1 - Depends on the manufacturer - they tend to echo their road bikes, there is no definitive benefit or disadvantage.
#2 - engine power is dependent on what the team and manufacturer want from the bike, all factories can make big power, depends how they want it to work with the electronics package, KTM as an example were making to much power and the bike was to difficult to ride. You need a smooth power plant to work on many different circuts, not just those with a long straight. You also have to keep in mind they only get 10 engines a season, if you use up all your allocations you get grid penalties.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.
