Rossi's suffering all right... from amnesia! He has forgotten that he was praising the aluminum framed Ducati just a few weeks ago during testing. The TEAM just went in the wrong direction with setup - remember? Ducati has bent over backwards for Rossi and Burgess and they get a kick in the teeth for their efforts working around the clock all winter. Bah

Keep those pom-poms waving, McClarenP!

I read the Kenny Roberts Jr article. And Kenny was infamous for publicly saying that he wouldn't over ride a crap heap. He once said something similar to if he has a 10th place bike he is gonna finish 10th.

But anyway, I don't think people expect Val to override the bike. Ok, Stoner did it and it was brilliant but that was Stoner. But what people do expect is for him to be beating Hayden and Barbera. He was slower than Hayden and Barbera in EVERY session in Qatar - FP1, FP2, FP3, and QP, he was the last place prototype in QP, and I think he set the slowest fastest lap in the race of a prototype. That's unacceptable and gives the impression that he isn't trying. You can't be the team leader and highest paid rider in the sport and give a half ass effort and turn around and then complain.
