crutchlow and hayden pushed hard andd we saw where that got him.....

basically all in the top 6 are the people who at some point in the weekend have challenged for the front row....rossi on the other hand never did...so even if he didnt have grip issues, fact is he could never have kept up with them.....

I used to love watching Rossi race, he was as flamboyant a lunatic on track as he was off it.
All i'll say is, god help him if he gets back on his beloved Yamaha and doesn't keep up with Lorenzo and Pederosa,
I really hope he does, otherwise i fear that our current series of a 3 horse race will become an even more ludacris series of a 2 horse race.

...time to leave, Mr. Rossi.

Don't blame it just on Ducati. You never get 100% out of the bike. The combination is terrible. Sad for Ducati, that they get so much bad press since Rossi isn't able to win with the Desmosedici. For sure...the problem is never Rossi...it's all about the Ducati.

Hopefully he will leave a.s.a.p. and hopefully we will get back the beautiful fire-red Ducati in 2013 when there isn't this green No. 46 on the bike anymore!

@ Gazza you poor child. I think you'll find that in the 7 years that Rossi and Stoner have competed in the same class, 2 to Rossi, 2 to Stoner, 1 to Lorenzo and 1 to Hayden. We won't even go to wins in the same period because you're obviously a very recent convert to motorcycle racing. It's a very different sport to celebrity worship

Smart race by Rossi.

I honestly cannot fault him for pushing hard and risking serious injury on the POS.

Just finish your contract Rossi, don't get injured.

We need to you attack Lorenzo and Marquez next season.

Sorry to Spies because Yamaha was such a POS to you.

That Ducati seems to be a death trap at Indy. That track brings out the worst of a no traction, understeering, front wheel folding, pitch you off the high side Ducati. Just staying on and not killing yourself sounds like a feat in itself.

I don't understand how Yamaha tell Spies if he's not going to give 100% don't turm up but then they go and sign Rossi who hasn't given 100% for the last 2 years.

They have paid a lot of money for someone that WAS great but is now a HAS BEEN
