....in F1 the last second is the most difficult, which is something Valentino Rossi realised as well....

Oh yes, but at least Rossi was within a second of Schumacher to begin with, it cost several Ferrari mechanics quite a lot of money in lost bets when he turned up and did that....

Rossi has also beaten a number of WRC drivers, in WRC cars including the legendary Colin McRae, setting consistent top 10, or was it top 5 times in a WRC rally.

@*yawn* how so matey ?

Rossis F1 times and the bets were well reported, he beat McRae in a special stage setup and has ran well in WRC cars.

Get a grip, so did Travis Pastrama on a super special but if you think either could beat him on a proper stage....please, get a grip.

I'm a huge Rossi fan but that statement was bizarre at best.
