All Rossi fans want, after two years of pain, is to see him having fun again , enjoying himself and having great battles with other riders which is what he enjoys the most, he's not a solo rider like Lorenzo or Pedrosa. Whether he wins another championship or not who cares! We just want to see him race like only he can!

pre season test.. if someone is working on suspension or electronics or a different compound of rubber is a few tenths so important?. there are no points given out for the times today.. it may be a little early for some of these predictions...

this man doesn't have anything to prove again...he just want to enjoy the race till his he loves racing...must be hard to fight young lad like Marc, Pedo, or's like John McClane Vs Thomas Gabriel in Die Hard 4...2 people from different generation...

2 agree. 4 disagree.
Sorry Rossi fans (myself included) but this is probably what we will see all racing season long, Rossi .5 seconds behind Pedro, MM, & Jlo. They will all be fighting for the podium whereas Rossi will be fighting with Cal, Bradl etc. I would love to see h im fighting for podiums or wins, but from these numbers it won't be happening, .5 seconds is HUGE!...of course there will be races with injuries and accidents and he will have a chance to contest podiumn or even a win, but that will be the exception not the norm. I see absolutley no cause to celebrate from these numbers. Also, as was said by even Bugess during his fianl Yamaha effort last time around, Rossi just cannot dig as deep as he used to on raceday like he was able to in days past, it didnt really matter where her started on the grid, he could make it up, but during his last year at Yamaha he struggled to do that. I hope i'm wrong!!

@gibbon75 After last year the races were boring as they gave up after 3 laps? (10 agrees too) Really? I remember Stoner crashing trying to overtake Dani on the penultimate lap and he was criticized for not settling for second. I sometimes wonder if some posters on here actually watch the races.

0.5 second.Compare to last year i think secretly Rossi and the team are confident coz this is the M1.they know how to get the half second to win,also it is pedrosa and Lorenzo 2 guys that Rossi has already beaten lot of Time.
All the journalists they say dani,Lorenzo are very fast ,dominate the test,etc...they forgot that Not so long ago these 2boys took constanly a trouncing by rossi.rossi just need to refresh their faculty.
Remember this is not ducashit.

It will make a world of difference to have a happy, smiling team again. Motivation, enthusiasm and a determined spirit will boost not just Valentino, but all those working with him. MotoGP will surely benefit from having this man back at the front as not only will he give us all thrilling racing, he will inject his usual sense of fun and humour into what had become just far too dull to mention!!!
