Yep... although I saw Nicky's bike belching smoke several times throughout QP. Anyone hear WTF on that issue? I was watching a Portuguese feed, so I have no idea what was going on...
Did Rossi finally out-qualify Hayden?

9 titles. That's what heroes are made of. Don't you start denying history too.
I'm not denying history - I'm referring to the present. Rossi was unbelievable for a decade, but he is quite believable now. I have no doubt that on a different bike he would be a different rider, but he isn't too impressive on a Ducati - at least not yet.
He summed it up himself - paraphrasing, but he said he felt like a motorcycle racer today - a slow one.

Has Ducati finally caved in and started to listen? Laguna is half season and a ways away. Better than no updates at least. 1.5 years gone to "testing".

Kneel down, ye sinners,
To streetwise religion,
Greed's been crowned the new King
Hollywood dream teens, yesterdays trash queens,
save the blessing for the final ring,

“We believe that a bike Valentino likes, is a good bike for all riders,” he said. “We are following the direction he suggests at the best of our capability, which is not enough right now to be faster than Honda. But for sure we will try in the direction that Valentino shows us.”
In terms of machine set-up, Preziosi said that Rossi and crew chief Jerry Burgess always have the final say.
“We give Jeremy 100% freedom to define with Valentino what the best set-up is. As Ducati, our duty is just to supply material.
“We can suggest what our ideas are, but the final decision, day by day, practice by practice, is made by Jeremy speaking with Valentino."
