Valentino Rossi's Crew Chief Davide Brivio says the wall that separates his rider from Jorge Lorenzo will not come down despite the new single-tyre rule. He reckoned it worked in 2008 and so it will remain because it keeps the competitiveness within the team. Yeah, Lorenzo will be loving it too...

Rossi himself finished top of the tree yesterday, snatching the number one spot from Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa and they were the only two to dip under the 1'40s mark. The Doctor used both '08 and '09 bikes in order to sort out a prototype for the Sepang tests. He now moves onto the Wales Rally GB, where he will no doubt find himself up a tree instead of on top of it.

Pedrosa, meanwhile, had a good old whinge about the weather yesterday and only got a couple of hours to dial in the chassis. Team-mate Andrea Dovizioso was less whiny saying that although the Bridgestone tyres are different, he will be fast on them.
After all the tantrums and dummy-spitting about James Toseland nicking his crew chief, Colin Edwards has decided his new one, JT's old one, is a genius.


Alice Ducati's Nico Canepa used a bar-mounted rear brake on his satellite Desmosedici and managed to knock more than a second off his best time around the track. His team-mate Mika Kallio was flying, posting seventh best time. He said the track was too difficult for the bike but that may have something lost in translation.
Sete Gibernau will go under the knife on December 1 to remove a metal plate from his collarbone which he had put in after a crash in 2006. The Onde2000 rider has taken medical advice which said it was better out than it. Like a good fart.

i just seems to be over the moon with being a MotoGP rider but said that his goals for the test were not to set fast times but to understand the technical package which is a lot different to his 250GP bike.
Nicky Hayden would like to wish the Americans a Happy Thanksgiving, whatever that is. I will bet it involves eating...
