MotoGP » 'Decent' pace gives Rossi hope

'I'm pretty consistent. I did a 1.31.7, a decent time, with a tyre that had about 18 laps on it, so that's not bad as we approach the race' - Valentino Rossi

Is it just me or has VR looked uncomfortable since he came back from the Leg and shoulder problems (even the last few months on the Yami). Nearly looks like he has problems with strength under breaking and mobility to move on the bike the rest of the time, making him look as stiff as a board.

This is just an observation IMHO.

No I dont need VR fan boys responding to this, try to be mature.

There is so much crap on these posts relating to stoner & Rossi if the GOAT had ridden the Ducati before riding the jap bikes he would have ridden round the problems, just like stoner did, your forgeting Rossi is coming to the end of his career and he knows what he needs to feel from a bike being a multipul world champion. Where as stoner was struggling in moto gp till Ducati gave him a chance, with which he took with both hands & proved what a brillant rider he is, that said,Rossi at his age was not prepared to keep throwing it down the road to prove a point. He has nothing to prove & 2 great riders at different times of there lifes. Rossi is also a brilliant car driver ie rally, F1 where he got within 1 secound of the great M Schumacher at the ferrari test track, still put money on the GOAT on the yamaha last lap shoot out to win the man is a legend!!!

fair racing- you are wrong. stonor rides around problems. rossi and co are pragmatists. they try to fix problems but without full support of the factory and lots of funding 'ie- like at yamaha or honda' this is not going to happen successfully a la the last 2 years although ducati have tried various things with little to no success or a negative effect(fair play)! be nice to see rossi come home and see what prevails(lorenzo smiling with gritted teeth)!

@True Fan
"Rossi is paid to win races. He isn't a bike developer. He is not an engineer at all. He gives feedback."
Never a truer word said, so why do you (and others) mock him for not being able to develop/ride a bike, surely it is Ducati you should be mocking.
Lets not forget Hayden won a world championship through CONSISTENCY (not necessarily lots of flashy wins but regular podiums) and since joining Ducati still has consistency but about 5 places further down the field.

Oh Mr Rossi,
for years many a success
for two years many a failure
more failures that we can make excuses up for and now

Randy nearly as quick as you,
Oh the Shame, the Shame , the Shame of it all

@George.. I'm disagree..
If there are problems with his physics, he and his team will not continue, that's what I believe. They are in this racing many years, they know how to get best results in championship. If one of those factor will become a big issue, they will stop.
They believe they will have chances to be in front again, thus they go back to Yamaha.
They have to try it and in the future they will not sorry coz never tried it...
As VR said, they bet on ducati and they lost.
Now they try put bet on yamaha, so we will see.. In indy VR said, if in 2 years in Yamaha he finds himself is too slow, he will stop.
Goo.. vale whatever you want to do, just do it and be fun and be happy... :)
