Some guys really dont rest a bit to let Rossi him peace!! Rossi is talcking very well, Motogp is passing for is boring years, but ey he stil bealives it can change he knows that this is a bad periode also because of financal problems.. Anyway about this track, for me and like we wach for many riders this track is the best him the World.. Ueah thinking really better of what make a circuit very cool have to say Philip Island have all the ingredients, its very fast very long corners that force the slide.. Its very cool track!! 4sure this GP will not be Boring, If Stoner can perform nice and fight with Lorenzo and Pedrosa we gona have some good action.. 4sure the Hondas will be more strong have no doubt about that but Stoner can surprised 4sure and this track is also good for Yamaha.. also if rains Ducati will be there to so lest hope we have a good show.. Honestly this time i whanted rain because we have more chances of somethingh go wrong or to Pedrosa or to Lorenzo so will be a heel of

Rossi is correct.
The battles are "too hard" its dangerous etc., etc., if racing on bikes should he a lot saver they wouldn't go that fast.
Simoncelli was accused of wreckless and dangerous riding, and overtaking was to harsh. I guess some of 'em haven't seen BSB, WSBK, SuperStock and Supersport.
It's too clean and risking a bit more doesn't have to mean you will crash or injure yourself. And Rossi is finally saying what the average MotoGP fan are saying when they wake up after they fell in sleep during the race.

Let's see, Phillip Island will probably be no different to what we have already seen - Jorge and Danny will follow each other for half the race, Jorge in front, then Danny will pass and tear off and win. Maybe Casey will get 3rd, or Dovi will just pip him after a bit of a jostle with Cal, Cal might fall off trying to get back past Dovi,further back, Bautista will be about 4th, with Valentino riding out on his own and maybe managing a 5th place, Spies will have fallen off by this time due to some malfunction with his bike and the rest will be doing what they always do, - getting involved in a completely different race!! There we go!!!

add at least 5 places to Jorge if it rains, PI only has one real straight (+15 kph/straightline speed advantage in the wet with Yamaha), not enough to make up for the lack of braking stability with his bike.

cmon, Rossi, you will need your front tire temps in the good way to keep from falling down the hill.
