yeah it will be another tuff race 4sure!! I dont hope for rain even if it could be better for the Duc i prefer to wach a dry race, this bike have to worck on that conditions even if its hard to find the best setup for that sh$t.. I also think that Rossi is playing a bit, he never whant to show exacly what is potencial is he just whant to get the feel to see how it goes thats why i whanted dry track like Spies say its not worth taking risks, on pre sesson tests he was able to ride a lot faster is time was 2:00.824.. Is not a top time that will give him the pole but at least is much better then the times that are been made... Yeah we have to wait for good condicions!!

While its good to see him back a year after loosing Marco, why do we have to go through the pain of seeing this one time quick guy back next year? There will be the same stupid talk about (insert any BS topic here), to mask the fact he's not as quick as other guys, while quicker riders have to wait until Rossis pension fully kicks in.

as stoner haters like to put it
it should read: "I was pretty slow"

coz duke is the fastest bike, rossi has the best team since motogp era.

Yes, he is pretty slow, isn't he. It is a tragedy that Del Torchio signed this fellow to a huge salary only for him to besmirch Ducati's good name. Are there ANY tracks the Italian has lapped faster on any of the various concoctions he has pressured Ducati to make compared with the wee Aussie on the earlier Ducatis? The killer is Aragon. In two years, the Italian has managed to make the Ducati more than two seconds a lap slower than the old carbon framed 800!

One minute understeer, the next it's oversteer.
It's not the bike, just a rider not prepared to move around on the bike enough to make it work.
If he can podium that yamaha next year, it's a good indication of how user friendly it is!
The T3 bikes already indicate exactly that point, Ben Spies?... well zero previous experience except riding modified 200hp production bikes until his mid 20's was always gonna be his handicap.

@Slow old 46 listen to yourself! Do you have a soul? Do you even believe the crap you type, why do you take enjoyment from Rossi struggling with the Ducati?

Remember what happened to him a year ago at this track, not only did he lose his friend but he was involved in the incident. Give the guy a break, who knows what it going through his mind it must be difficult for him this weekend as it would be for anyone who returned to the scene where they lost a friend. Grow a heart you sad beggar!

I remind you, look his performance at Misano with a bike that worked. Anyone with actual knowledge of this sport & Rossi's achievements & have watched this sport longer than two year & isn't a troll (like yourself) will know never to count the guy out. "Slow old 46" you have a slow old memory!

Lets see how the weekend pans out, you know if it stays dry that he'll improve
