Well, well, well Would someone tell Mr J. Burgess the 80 seconds he allocated for Valentino to fix the problem is up? What these two have done is actually make the Ducati look worse. Now they cannot even match a satellite Ducati (Barbera) who was two seconds faster than the great one. Mr Rossi has been hoist on his own petard, and the delicious thing is, he actually has no where left to hide. No chance of him getting Michelin to make him some special tyres now. No need for a wall down the garage. Either he is a great motorcycle development rider, or an imposter. Which will it be?

You all forgot to mention his save in FP3 on the same corner. Lost the front, made a split second move to let the front brake go and let it run on at high speed into the gravel to save the bike.

He isn't a 9 time world champ for nothing

riders crash all the time,
when other riders crash most people wish them well and hope for no injuries,

But when Rossi has a crash the troll come out and start pointing the finger saying he's useless and so on,

this place is seriously turned into a joke.

Just goes to show Ducati still cannot inspire cornering with the current set up ! How on earth can the riders be confident at high speed ? Tells me Ducati will miss out this season as well ?

Rossi too old and too afraid to push hard , his career is already sunset , no way he can challenge Lorenzo even given the best bike ! That's why he is afraid to go to Honda as he might afraid using the best bike still losing to Lorenzo ! I can see ever since the broken leg from last year mugello onward , he was not the same Rossi anymore ! He is just different Rossi that afraid to push to the limit like the old days Rossi .
