I have been a rossi fan for a long time, but that qualifying seesion was near enough tragic! He really needs a find a way to make the Ducati work for him, because being the slowest Dcuati and the slowest wroks bike is at this point not the bikes fault, but his. Especially since Hayden managed to go one second quicker on the exact same bike! He can't leave Motogp like this. It would be a terrible end to a brilliant career. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some better news....

this is sad for both rossi and ducati.he has spent his whole career on bikes where he was able to load the front and now he is on a bike that works best from the apex to the exit he doesnt seem to be able to gel with it.
i really hope thats the case and a change of bike would make a difference,remember there should be 2 suzuki seats available next year.they might not have the fastest bike,but they know how to make them go round corners.
tetley made a very valid point about the loss of marco,and gerry burgess wifes illness.having the head in the right place is as crucial as bike set up at this level,and no matter what anyone says publicly,being one of 2 riders that hit your mate in an accident where he loses his life WILL have long lasting effect.
sure vale and burgess deserve a bit of flack for not recognising what both casey and ducati acheived,but the bike racing world is a better place with a competitive rossi.

well. it's gonna be a long season. Val's lap times look weak now.

it's the new Bridgestones that have me wondering?

most of the fellas say they fall off quick. That kinda brings tire/tyre management into play.

I think we will all have to sit back and watch for a bit to see who's easier on tires and who's the best when there gone.

I just hope to see some good close racing at the front this year! I'm sure many here feel the same!

Well, we all know Stoner only won in 2007 because the Ducati was sooooo much faster.

Now it's 2012 and Ducati is again the fastest machine in MotoGP so, the Ducati rider(s) should just blast past the Lorenzo fellow (only did 329.7 km/h vs Ducati 338.8) and go on to win efforlessly. Yep, worked for the Aussi and should work for the Itlalian too.

Sort of a what goes around comes around type post.

Unbelievable how many Rossi haters there is on this site. They hammer Rossi at every turn from the safety of their keyboards.
A new bike is a new bike and there are going to be problems, lots of them. Sometimes you get lucky and hit a decent setup when you don't have any data from prior years, sometimes you don't. But if they are starting on the incremental change path, things will get better.
Race pace is different than one hot lap, way different. Lets see what happens in the race... I can't wait.
And for the people that make up the crap that Hayden and Rossi don't share and get along well, better go back a do some research, they have always been friends.

"Only because Nicky Hayden is slower than Rossi. I'm sure if Hayden was as quick as Lorenzo, Rossi would storm up a hissy-fit like he did at Yamaha."

Wow, "inconvenience", you really are a bitter young man aren't you? Every post you make is so full of hate! What is your problem boy? You come across as very foolish and silly on these forums.
