"The new rider can learn off Nicky... Even though Rossi refused to."

Another hate comment in times like this.

Although, I should say that looking at what happened in qualifying, it looks like Rossi has learned and Nicky hasn't. Nobody should push the bike beyond its limit when even way before its limit it suddenly throws you into a world of $h!te and pain.

Desmo quak you must be a nube or you don't know anything about high sides because casey and Ben had a high side but nicky lost the front the Desmo is a pos it's the only bike that loses the front and then throws you over the top when in my opinion the bike actually turned off again just like it did to Rossi at the mugello test it's a frankenstein of a bike put together by a mad scientis nuts and bolts put together in the wrong configuration.

Lots of comments about poor tyres or poor track but why no mention of the highly sophisticated electronics that are supposed to prevent so many riders being launched skywards.

I cant remember many front end low sides that should happen as well if the track is slippery. Some of those high sides were extremely vicious as if the traction control suddenly failed to work yet is is linked to gps and set for each individual corner.

So much for the manufacturers insistence that they need electronics for safety reasons as it is clearly overrated.

@ Suzuki - Rossi is paid very big money to take the risk.
If he doesn't want to, he shouldn't be there.
Disgraceful to be out-qualified by a CRT bike.

Rossi had an almost identical front end incident, it's lucky there aren't two Works Ducati's out of the race. I hope that Ducati were watching, might make them realise that the bike is not all it should be.

I've waited years for this site to show Nicky the respect that he deserves (remember the 'Kenlucky Kid' days?). It p*sses me off that a lot of what he is getting now is by people using him to bash Rossi.The guy is a trooper, always has been.
Heal well Nicky.

PS. Dovi..take note. This is what you are taking on.

'It's the track'. 'It's the tyres'. 'It's the bike'.
No-one thinks that the racer might just have been pushing hard in Quali? Nicky was trying his heart out (as usual) at his home GP. Lots fell on a low-grip, high wear surface, but lots didn't too.

Pedro & Lorenzo for example found the limit and managed to find the best available lap time without binning it, while their teammates crashed. I know Nicky is on the Ducati (which Burgess is on record on saying is 1% away from being up front so calling it a POS all the time is too much).

Its a real shame for Nicky - he really wanted to pit on a show today, and I think he was on for a decent result. Ben too - if he makes the start he's got to be a bit de-tuned after that off. Stoner also. Even if you don't like these racers, accept that Racing really needed all these guys out there on form today.

Get well soon to all.
