Max Biaggi was not on track today for the first practice sessions of Moto3 to follow 'his' Fenati, back from victory at Misano. The reason? He was simply driving a van to Barcelona.
This is because the 6-time World Champion will be testing in Barcelona immediately after the Grand Prix at the wheel of his Aprilia RSV-4 X. Simple fun or is there something else?
Fans and insiders ask themselves this when they see the number of times the Roman Emperor puts on his helmet and suit to drive around with the most coveted of Noale's 'toys'.
On this occasion it will be interesting to compare his times with those of MotoGP and, of course, Superbike.
For the moment the Roman rider has ruled out a 'ride' on the RS-GP...but never say never.
