Here's how the Rossi see-saw goes.

Rossi does well: "My shoulder is feeling better it will not be long before we are challenging the front runners" or "Rossi is getting better he'll be beating the others in the race!"

Rossi falls behind as others show their true pace: "My shoulder is holding me back, plus the bike is no good" or "If it wasn't for Rossi's shoulder he would be beating everyone!"

I've never heard any sports person whinge like such a girl over any injury. You can bet your last dollar the "shoulder injury" will be a problem right up until Ducati develop a bike better than the others.

Wouldn't MotoGP be more fun with more riders competing/ a closer competition?
I find, apart from the lower profile of the riders, Moto2 is pretty interesting to watch. The competition is closer, the riders (appear to) risk more, and they (appear to) go for it harder than the MotoGP guys. Don't get me wrong, I love watching Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo, Spies, Dovizioso, Pedrosa and the rest, but it seems this season is Honda dominant, Yamaha close behind, and Ducati chasing! Where's the mix in manufacturers? I just think it might be more fun with a few Kawasaki's or whatever in the mix. :)

The only things coming out swinging are Rossi's fans with their handbags :-)

You have to love the die-hards.

The "here he comes", "cue the jaws music" and other rubbish they spout is just lame. When Rossi gets shuffled back down the timesheet where he (more accurately the Ducati) belongs, the fans comments trail off into dead silence, until the next faint glimmer of hope after we all wait for "the next race" when "he's closer to 100% fit" and "finally sorted the bike"....

Why doesn't he just hand back a few million, call the Ducati the dog that it is (although it is fast, Stoner proved that) and tell the world that he's not going to to ride it on the ragged edge (like Stoner) and his time's better spent not getting hurt and getting next years bike right..

Obviously, its get to see VR46 at the front again, even the most passionate of Stoner fans would agree with that.

However, I am happy to see Toni Elias much closer to the rest of the field, as he was miles off the pace in Qatar. Quicker than Loris and Hopper, and only a few tenths off a Gresini Honda. Keep it up Toni

@eadgbe, re: As a general rule, Stoner needs to be 0.5 secs a lap faster in qual if he's going to stay with Rossi & Lorenzo in a race..

than may have been true when he was on unruly Duc and had to ride 100% out of control. Not on Honda.
