Tamada: Boring!

After the excitement of returning to MotoGP action yesterday - after an extra long winter break - Makoto Tamada was forced to endure a 'boring' second day of testing at Phillip Island as rain reduced his running to just 15 laps.

"I got really bored today, as did most of the other riders present in Phillip Island, waiting for the rain to stop falling," said the Konica Minolta Honda rider. "When I decided to make some laps, the flooding level of the track seemed to be stabilised, but half an hour later the rain had decreased, and I decided to stop.

"It had no sense to continue, the never-ending change of the track conditions did not allow a valid reference to elaborate any comments for my technicians. Anyway, I'm really satisfied because I have found the same good feeling of yesterday when I rode the new RC211V for the first time."

"We can state that we lost a day, not for the wet conditions, but especially for the continuously changing track conditions," confirmed technical director Giulio Bernardelle. "It was in fact impossible to find any solution due to the impossibility to work with a constant environmental reference.

"The positive thing is that Makoto has bee impressed by the complete potential of the technical package we will work with during this season, even in wet conditions. The check Makoto made, lasting just 15 laps before the rain started lowering, can be considered positive.

"If tomorrow there will be the possibility to work in dry conditions, we will conclude the Australian tests session with a good data base useful to develop the machine setting for the first part of the season."

Tamada set a best wet lap time of 1min 43.74secs today

well he's certainly got more skill"z" than me, so I guess I can't talk, but it strikes me that all his victory's where at bridgestone tracks while he was the token bridgestone man, and that he got his ride from Honda's search for a japanese world champion (sorry Honda, it aint happening anytime soon, and if it did, it would be going to Shinya, not Tamada)

Im not saying he's the best but he still won, even if it was at their tracks. Remember he spanked rossi. I cant remember but wasnt it Sepang or Montegi?

Tamada also won in Brazil. If it wasn't for his injuries, he could have well been in the mix for wins the past couple of seasons.
