Ducati became the first manufacturer and Rossi the first rider to test next year’s 1000cc bike in public. Rossi apparently gushed about how good it was and all that while Stoner and Lorenzo were supposed to have said just you watch. We will watch out and see which way the new regulations will take the manufacturers in 2012. More importantly we will have to see if the grid size improves or if it will still be a point guarantee situation for all those who start.
