how is he moaning exactly?
he said he had a headache yesterday, he didnt say it afffect his abilty to ride fast, or exit out of corners and anything or cause chatter or arm put so he couldnt hang onto the bike. he just said he had a headache and still manged to go 3rd fastest. like he said, it was better today and tomorrow he will be at his maximum.
he will be 2nd on the grid after QP, pole isnt that important, as long as you have front row its heaps better then 4th or 5th row. once he gets into his rythum of putting down consistant lap times which we all know Rossi can do, he will take the lead at some stage and fight tooth and nail to take the victory, if he gets passed, he will fight back immediatley, not just sit back and watch the guy infront.

Just sat here reading all the comments ,don't you lot get bored with all this Casey vs rossi arguments ? Lets face facts they are both talented riders , they have both made mistakes you. Rossi couldn't win on the ducati ....big deal,he's won on everything else , stoner did win on ducati ,good for him .
Everyones different and to a degree unless you have access to the teams ,the pit garages and boss's then the reality is your never really know what's going on ,your just relying on sites like this to keep you informed ,news flash me ,you and everyone else on here has no idea really , just read on here someone saying it's good to have rossi back on the r1!!!!!
So why don't we stop bickering and just enjoy the racing and leave the politics to those who actually make the decisions

Forget about the haters Valle! You have proven once more your skills on the circuit. Haters criticized you on the the winless ducati, now they criticized you for being 4th and a 10th below the top riders....and of course with a headache!!!

Wow, this site has become a real Rossi love feast, how great he is etc even one comment bout how he has dominated the season test and we haven't had a race yet.

The you have the Stoner comments, yes, we understand that he is the only rider to put fear into Rossi and his fans but give it a rest.

Lets hope we just have a good race come Sunday and if Rossi does well you can all go to school on Monday morning with a smile and an apple for the teacher.

Stop you moaner fans I'll accept that...

You can bring that ducati on to the limit but when safety is not sure, wise men don't bring it to the limits, its purely the fault of factory and engineers,, oriented towards result rider trying to compensate for the poor work of engineers on race day is simply bull ****,,

Living successfully on that insecure edge must be thrilling, you might win even 5 straight races but one small mistake leading to nasty crash will spoil all party of 5 wins,, the level of risk is way too far beyond the reasonably required level...

Afterall attitude differs and that reflects in the riding style,, that stoner is a fool who simply defines racing as being the fastest around the circuit, that's why he either wins or goes out crashing,, but according to Rossi racing means just enough speeding with unlimited consistency and clever mind and that's why the legend makes fewer mistakes and crashes less frequently than others,,

This is not drag racing either,, if y

Real champions don't block fast team mates from joining their team, block their actual team mates from using fast parts in the race through contract clauses and don't need the racing organizers to lobby for them.
If Rossi wouldn't have blocked Stoner from joining Yamaha Stoner would have had 4 or more championships instead of just 2.
If Lorenzo wouldn't have had to use low spec parts because Rossi blocked him from getting the stuff that worked Rossi wouldn't have so many championships today.
Sheeeesh even Edwards was super fast in practice and qualifying just to be handicapped by Rossi on race day with low quality tires and parts.
