Practice is about so much more than best/fastest lap. Race distance, tire management etc etc ... Roll on race day as that will be the teller. But yes Suzuki and Yamaha have definitely made some big strides, as has Ducati and Aprilia. Honda sandbagging? Actually struggling - not ready to race  8)

MM learning from Rossis Mistakes who would have definitely had at least one more title had he stayed on that V5 Honda another 2 years. Rossi leaving Yamaha was also mistake.

Not mistakes, challenges.

The best time is still about a second off MMís best lap last year  :sip:

With MM no where  near the top and Honda looking a little bit left behind  this thread has gone quiet a lot of anticipation and hope for non MM fans.

It's early days, we will only really know what everyone can do once racing starts.

In reality if BB can run in the top 10 at race pace and distance he will be doing extremely well. If one watched how Fabio nailed the race distance tests you will know who the golden boy of the moment is. This season is going to be a stonker!  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

That is a load of bollocks  :laughing4:

This was the Qatari government putting restrictions on people arriving into the country from Italy. As far as im aware the bikes and equipment are still in Qatar from last weeks testing.

If WSBK is clever about it, they will ship all equipment from Australia to Qatar and no personnel to go to Italy either.

Note:  Before anyone tells me, I am aware that all of Moto2 and Moto3 is already in Qatar due to the testing this pas weekend.   :thumleft:

Not only from Italy, with pilgrims flooding in from all around the world travel restrictions are a reality for the next year to 18 months. I hope it goes ahead.. ive been rubbing my hands for a while for the 2020 season

Even if they are all in the country, the fans wont be able to fly in from some regions.
