Yeah the times improve a lot from last year but also Hondas and Yamahas never stop there progress!! Times are preety close but its dificult to predict what can be done because riders from 4 place to 9 place have more less similar pace, anyway i think Rossi can be there fightingh for 5 place i just dunno if he will keep a good performance all race, has we know Ducati have a lot of desavantages, dont turn so well dont exit so well, cant save the tyres so well, basacly try to put all worcking together to make a good race is hard worck.. We will see if Rossi finish him 5 or 6 place will be a good race thats 4sure

not that many posts on a Rossi thread is there.

Anyway 9th is 9th and after 2 years of development theres still no improvement,would like to see the return of the carbon frame next year.

I wonder what rules uncle Carmelo gonna change/bend next year to get Rossi upto Yorgis pace

@ Md Zane
No rule changes are needed to bring Rossi up to pace on a good racing bike which is an evolution of his development.
Just wait for the first test to see what I am talking about.
Jorge knows this, Rossi knows this very well, and thst the reason for the mind games they played with each other on Rossi's signing for 2013.

Unfortunately for Rossi the bike that is a evolution of his development is 2 years down the road now and under the development of Yorgi,wondering when Rossi will say that the Yammy isn't how it should be and I would like these changes made.I myself can't wait to the season is over to see how fast or slow Rossi is gonna be on the Yam
Anyway Yorgi bossed him in 2010 when he was the no2 rider so whats gonna stop him doing that in 2013,nothing.

There is massive anticipation for the Valencia test.
I am quite sure that Rossi will surely be upto speed.
Agreed that he lost out to Yorgi, but there were two injuries for Rossi that year.
But this test will be very interesting.
