hayden showing the good of ducati in the wet. Well another amazing display of stoner with his number 2 bike. rossi was stuck in p9 while hayden doing the business for ducati.

Usually, I'd agree with you because Rossi is a good wet rider and the duke is a good wet bike but I think Rossi is genuinely struggling. I think we'll end up seeing a performance more like Silverstone 2011 rather than Le Mans 2012. Just my opinion.

ya...dissapointed with rossi....even the commentators expected him to fight for pole in the beginning....

lets hear what was the problem this time....tire wear or the front end again.....

am i the only one confused why he is hell bent on staying with ducati next year ???

Casey Stoner shows them all. Again.

Not at all sure that Spies can perform at the front in the race. Hope he can. Vale looked uncomfortable/uncertain in the wet today, I bet he can't wait to get away from Ducati. Trouble is Honda and Yamaha don't appear to want or need him.

many people hate rossi due to a very simple reason - JEALOUSY. their favorite riders are nowhere near rossi's 9 world titles. keep hating rossi you fool. your favorite rider could not equal rossi's achievements.

guys not sure if you noticed, vale went out alot earlier than everyone else for the final stint, his tires would have been more worn in the final 10 mins and all he could do is sit there and push with what he had.

Ammar, I'm confused by a few things when it comes to Rossi.

Last year, Rossi had Hayden's measure. Not so this year. Why? Has he failed to adapt to the 2012 tyre as well as Hayden? Has he lost heart?

After a total of 18 months on the bike and numerous changes to the bike under the direction of him and his team, he seems to be going a little bit worse than he was going at this stage of the season last year. Why?

He has some good wet meetings, then has absolute disasters (like Silverstone 2011) - and this weekend does not look good. Why?

I can't even come up with a decent guess that explains all that.

Here in the states, the very few of us that knew who Ben Spies is are just happy to see him doing well at all. Motorcycle racing is not that popular here. Ben can walk just about anywhere here and not get noticed. If he was doing in Nascar what he has done all his life on motorcycles he would be known by all. Loved watching him on those yosh Suzuki's! Would love to see a Suzuki back in moto gp, and with Spies on them. Of course doing well too. Stoner is a awesome rider, will miss him. Just wish there were more competition at the top. Close back and forth racing is the best. This taking the lead and checking out puts me to sleep.
