I know it's just the beginning of testing but it is unreal how fast this guy is already. He can only get better but so can the others. I have a feeling he will leave a mark on the series in his rookie season.

Didn't they say the only reason he wasn't doing even better was that he was taking time to get use to the new tires? He had been use to the grip the Pirelli's on his old bike had. Should be an exciting year coming up. :)

Actually Drizzt In an interview in ..On the throttle .. Spies said he has to get used to the M1 being better all around ( grip, acceleration, handling ect) Which is a good thing . Its better finding higher marks than lower ones . His speed will keep getting better.

Yeah, I wasn't implying the new tires were worse, just that he needed to find the grip thresholds of the newer tires. :) They made mention of him needing to keep a higher speed through the turns and get off the brakes sooner. High expectations for this guy next year for sure. :)
