Rossis' hot track
Ducatis' cold track

Man or machine? could be interesting.
No more shoulder excuses Rossi,, you made your best lap times @ Qatar near the end of the race, that says more about your fitness/shoulder than you do.
Indeed quite the opposite of Danis' performance in the race, so we can afford him some slack for now.

Qatar was the most Ducati friendly track of the first four rounds this year. Even CS struggled at the next three tracks when on the Ducati so don't expect miracles from VR even if he had a good shoulder.

Ducati had a win here with Capirossi beating Pedrosa. It's not a Ducati's worst track. It's just one of Stoner's worst track. Rossi expected to finish nothing less than a podium. Otherwise, It must be something wrong with him. Last year Hayden finish 4th there on Ducati. How hard is it for Rossi to beat Hayden?

Excuses or not, it's astonishing to continually read put-downs and negative comments regarding Rossi. How short are the memories of some of the so-called enthusiasts when a rider comes towards the end of their career. Its a shame we can't turn the clock forward a little just to highlight how similar the comments will be in maybe five years towards the current crop of aliens. Hard to imagine but it will happen.

@ some1
Ah yes thanks for reminding us, this is the track where last year Hayden(4th) and Stoner(5th) finished 8&9 seconds respectively behind (less than a month old shoulder injured) 3rd placed Rossi

Jerez is a track where front end confidence is crucial, and you need the bike to hold a precise line. Therefore Rossi is screwed. 7th is the best he can hope for.

"Ducati had a win here with Capirossi beating Pedrosa."

That was not on the 800 which is a completely different bike. You might as well say that a Ducati superbike won at such and such circuit and conclude that Ducati are therefore likely to win in MotoGP at the same track.

fk me.. we're one race into the season. We know buggerall about how the end of seasons gonna look. Personally I think its between Dani and Casey. Depending when Casey starts crashing and Dani shoulder healing. I rate Rossi around 4th - 5th for about 5 races. AFter that, make your own decisions. All the blabbering means nothing now.
