    Top 10 from the first two days of testing at Mandalika. Honda looking stronger. Aprilia still impressing. Binder riding the wheels off that KTM and Yamaha still not worrying anyone else. VR46 will be pleased with FP2.

    A close of play on last day
    Espargaro on the Honda 1st with Fabio on the Yamaha close behind in 2nd, Espargaro's brother in 3rd on the Aprilia with Morbidelli in 4th on the other Yamaha. Not bad for a slow bike.

    I think the Yamahas are going to struggle in the races though, top speed deficit is just as bad as last year....

    Couldn't agree more, Fabio must be in despair, yet again Yamaha have failed to come up with the goods. I appreciate the issue with a straight four cylinder engine compared to a v4 but Suzuki seem to have found a little more speed. I note also that Honda have upped the ante and found something, I had discounted Marc Marquez from my prediction of this years champion and may well be proved wrong after seeing reports of the tests, tho still think he has to be more careful about crashing than before. It is going to be a great season I think with all the young guns out there. Roll on March 4th -6th on BT Sport. Cancelled my motogp.com subs as I missed Suzi and Co.

    There’s muttering about Fabio going to Honda next year. I wouldn’t be surprised if they came from his own camp. I can’t see him staying if the Yamaha isn’t competitive this year.

    I renewed my MotoGP VideoPass as I won’t give BT any of my money. Not even for Suzi.

    I like the coverage on BT Sport. I just wish they could get back Keith Huewen and Julian Ryder, one of the best ever commentary partnerships on TV IMO. Not that bothered about Suzi Perry TBH. I'm with BT for phone and BB with BT Sport on the Sky Q box along with one of their TV packages but I may go to Sky for everything when the BT contract comes up for renewal unless they pull something really special out of the bag.

    I used to enjoy Keith and Julian back in the good old days of World Superbikes and Foggy on the 916. Stayed up all night to watch that last round at Philip Island. Worthi it. :blush: Won't have anything to do with BT based on previous experience and their monopolistic behaviour when broadband was being rolled out that held so many back.
