@Valentino Rossi: "I can concentrate on riding the bike". Those are your own words, not mine. The words I have been waiting to hear from you these last several months. I am also waiting to hear what you will be saying about 45 minutes after the top of the hour on Sunday. I am waiting. And good luck.

Apparently, something did change: in recent times, Rossi would start the weekend on a positive basis but wouldn't improve (quite the contrary) during pratice sessions, which apparently meant that he would be losing his strenght pratice by pratice.
Not this time, though, but it still remains to be confirmed that he is getting back to his normal self. Tomorrow's lap times will tell.

This is awful news for Hayden. If I'm not mistaken he's lost an engine already. If this turns out to be an engine failure and not some electronics problem, he's in BIG trouble when it comes to having a fresh engine towards the end of the year.

Yep. Definitely looking much more like it.
Much better pace in the dry now, compared to the top runners.
With confidence now increasing quickly, his meticulous development skills should hopefully reap rewards.
Just keep it rubber side down.

Be interesting to compare the top speeds of rossi and hayden over the next few races, if hayden has lost a motor. If they have to turn the wick down abit, given the grunt of the honda, he is proper facked.
