I think you can say that Rossi still has it. Just like old times, shame it was for 6th instead of the win.

Check out the fastest laps of the 3 Ducatis, 7 thousands of a second covers all 3. This must show the level of the bike, Rossi made the difference.

Credit it must go to Barbera, he mixed it up on a Satellite bike. I just wish he would grow up and stop looking for a tow in practice.

From what we've seen this year, I like to think that slowly but surely, the Ducatis are making actual progress. It huts to see someone of Rossi's stautre limping around for now, but who woulnd't like to see a field with more than two competitive manufacturers?

yeahHHhH...he's struggle with this's pointless to push up to 120% if you only finish 6th or 7th...he's jealous about Honda and their new chasis...and manage to finish in front of another Duck riders maybe just the best option...but Vale's fans still wants to see him battle at the front and win...

it seems Barbera and Hayden beat are beating Rossi
week in week out.

oh wait. he finished ahead of them all once again,
and still infront of them on the points table.

not bad for the number 2 Ducati rider

@Stoner would have a least crashed the duc up the front
Posted by kiwibob

no he would of crashed out in the warm up lap
as he did in 09 at Valencia.
and on that,

but he didnt, he crashed out on the superior Honda
and blamed the marshals for him not getting a result.
