      Glad to see this thread up so early. Can we get timings for the tests that will be happening in Valencia today? 2015 looks promising as usual.

      Going by Suzuki's performance yesterday, I sincerely hope Aleix and Maverick have made the right decision and will be able to deliver lot more than Randy. The top speed deficit is worrying, hope they can do something about it before the next season starts.

      3 blown up engines in a single race isn't good either.

        Suzuki blew 2 of their 3 engines. de Puniet retired during the race due to gearbox issues.

        After watching yesterday's race, can't wait for Ducati to sort out its issues and let the two Andreas become competitive again. Even though it lasted just a few corners it was a pleasure seeing Iannone fight Marquez before his tyre was destroyed. In the initial laps, Maniac Joe was lapping consistently at the same pace as the Aliens, that too with a busted arm, too bad he followed Lorenzo into the pits to swap bike or else he might have been in the Dovi-Cal scrap for 4th.

        Waiting to see Maverick and Jack in MotoGP, hope the both of them do well in the premier class.

          Yup gearbox failure. I meant reliability. Iannone could have added spice to the Ducati fight, however, it will be wrong to write off Cal yet. Remember, he was not on 14.2 and was giving Dovizioso good fight on a supposedly better machine.

          Tyre management is also an art on these bikes. Rossi, Marc are the masters. On another note, did anyone notice resurgent Hector Barbara on Open Ducati? What a turn around for him after having trashed the kawasaki.

          Petrucci too put in a good fight, he too will be closely watched next season on his Pramac Ducati.

            Cal's LCR is a proper looker! Loads of pictures of all bikes on Twitter.
            Suzuki GSXRR takes the top spot but, is in the bottom of the list in terms of performance. Heard that AEsp jumped on it and started riding at RdP's pace.

                I agree, Iannone gave a good fight and holding back Rossi and Marc for 15 laps wasnt a joke!! Cal was impressive, and luckily didn't crash either :P!!

                Iannone on a the factory Ducati next year would be a thing we have to see, honestly i root for the Italian riders more than the Spanish!!

                Lately Barbara has been doing pretty good actually since the last 3-4 races and he seems to be more focused than before, hope he improves more next year!

                ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

                I hope the AesP didn't do a mistake by joining Suzuki in their comeback!! Alexis can be pretty strong rider on a factory bike, can't wait for him to see how he does!!!!

                  I'm just going through the pics online. I would to see the Ducatis and Suzukis soon upto pace. Would at least want them to compete in 5-8 spot. Aleix would definitly take Suzuki's 1st podium if the Suzuki is capable enough to stick to 5-8 rank in races.

                  Alex Marquez has been presented to ride the Championship winning Honda today at the Valencia circuit in response to his efforts for winning the championship. Though Honda still lost the constructors title in Moto3

                            Aleix and Maverick are not doing bad on Suzuki. They may get the bike to its potential by 1st round in 2015.
                            Whats up with Redding, I expected him to be in top 10 today, may be he is taking it easy today.
                            Danilo Petrucci, is posting good times on the Pramac Ducati.
