Crikey! Agreeing with you AGAIN? Well said. The world must truly be ending. :)

It annoys me that people use the Ducati as the "true" measuring tool of a championship rider.

For what it's worth Rossi did more 01's than cal and about the same as Marquez . Also he did more laps within a second of his fastest lap than cal. So the overall fastest lap isn't the most important thing.

The best part about all of this is the drama that is going to unfold in the near future. Who will prevail???? Hopefully we are in for races that have us on the edge of our seats.

LifeLong46Fan - Unregistered why do people like you tell lies about stoner running away what a joke . we have been lucky to watch so many good riders like stoner dani lorenzo and rossi and i for one can respect all of them for the job they do . Rossi will be up the front end this year because he is back on a bike he can ride i always said he could still ride a bike fast just not the duc as the facts show only one person has been able to adapt to the duc . will be fun to watch mm improve this year as he is good and like him or not he is the same as stoner he is a very talented rider end of as anyone who loves gp will tell you we want to watch racers i don,t care what they do off track

Don't slate me, I'm not attacking anybody -and actually I'm a Rossi fan-, just making an observation for a discussion's sake.

Rossi, with a bike that has improved (he said so as well), is still (very) far away from his 2010 test time.

Might this suggest us that age is has lost something in the last years?
I quite possible, if not likely..
