forget where he qualified

he can make that up in the first 4 turns...

important thing is he is less than 4tenths away from colin in 4th...

if he improves his race pace compared to others, it will be an exciting race

Bridgstone,

everyone out performs rossi this season,
no i am not a rossi hater, the simple fact which you still are yet to comprehend is that you have to point out the fact if jlo and spies were there he would be lower on the grid, yet you failed to mention that the other riders 9th and lower would be 2 spots lower.
what does that have to do with anything, 2 riders arent there, rossi IS. there for who gives a toss if he would be 2 spots lower, or higher, does he every qualy good, no , does he always make up positions during the race, Yes.. where ever Rossi does ok and other riders fail its always mentioned that it was a "gifted" spot, or if so and so was there he would be lower,
fact of the mater is, he is racing, the others are not.

lol...praying is a bit over exaggerating id say...

but you have to agree rain makes it more interesting..and seeing how the previous races have gone, interesting races is something required...

just for an example, last race became soo much more fun with the rain confusion in the end...simo and dovi's battle was good...

Hayden: "I was pushing the front, and I had a couple moments where I was basically down but managed to stay on the bike. Truthfully, I think the bike was capable of a bit better."

Now, that is the confident most Ducati riders should have.

Lots of theories as to why the Ducati has front end issues. It's been blamed on the lack of frame, the use of carbon etc. etc.

Surely it can't be as simple as the fact that most of the weight of the L4 engine is further back than an inline or V configuration so the front end isn't sufficiently loaded???

I'm just off to mail my CV to Ducati. Ciao!

how the hell did Casey ride that Duke?
I really and cant figure out why only him and capirossi had any success on it.
Just hope the 2012 is more rider friendly, its painful watching vale tip toeing around this year like he is riding on ice

@ah seng rossi's no1 fan - "that pile of crap... low side when pushed really hard..."

Sure, he makes mistakes, but I don't think it's appropriate to call Rossi a pile of crap. Shame on you! Please return your fan club membership card and discount coupon booklet. You can keep the underpants if you promise to keep them covered when you're outside the house/sanitarium.

Shame!
