Asphalt & Rubber @ Qatar GP Valentino Rossi close up1 635x425

We’re live here in Doha for the next 10 days, covering the last pre-season MotoGP test and the Qatar GP. The skies seem perpetually hazy, with the sun poking through every now and then. That’s just fine by us, as it’s keeping daytime temperatures in the low 80F’s, with nights being a pleasant 60-70F. As usual we’ll have our Twitter feed going on the site, keeping you up-to-date with the latest happenings in the MotoGP paddock.

    Jensen, can you do an analysis of number of laps per time gradient per rider for day 2 (or combined), similar to the one you did for day 1?

    Thx.

  2. Yes, I will be. There’s some debate on when we’ll be leaving the press center tonight. I might have it out in a few hours, or do it when I wake up tomorrow.

  3. Doctor Jelly says:

    Ok, so maybe the yellow/red of Rossi is growing on me after all…

  4. BC says:

    This is getting me really pumped for the season…

    Looking forward to the reports this week

    You can’t make the Terol comment and not elaborate on what went on…
