Well, not really, he was the fastest on the 2nd day test, which, was wet and not many of them took to the track.

Now, what really impressed me or is what I wanted you guys to see was the following:

Quote:
"He certainly is very brave," Preziosi told Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport. "With the telemetry you can see that in certain situations the bike wobbles in a scary way, even more than with [Casey] Stoner, but he doesn't get off the gas.

"I think we've made a good choice."

Nicky is always fast by himself? When is it comes to race day ... it's different.

The Fat Buddha makes a good point. But... I am still rooting for Nicky. He is on my favorite bike, with my favorite team and riding beside Stoner. If the last races were any indication, it would appear there is some fire back in his loins!
