Headaches. Traffic. If it was Stoner, the yellow panty brigade would be yelling "moaner". But, according to them, Val does it all so cheerfully, it really is not the same thing. Yeah, right.

Great effort by Lorenzo and Pedrosa today, really pulled something out of the bag. Surprised by Rossi's and Marquez's performances in qually but would not be suprised to see both near the front in the race. Might be wishful thinking for this race, but I was really looking forward to them both taking it up to Lorenzo and Pedrosa this year.

Merely Telling that a rider was cought in a traffic jam is differeent from the one cought in a traffic jam plus cursing the crt as the root cause of the incident. Anyway the qualifying does not count so much but the race day which generates points for championship

Dani was able to break Jorge last year, there is nothing stopping Rossi from doing the same thing, even though the bike is not to his liking and the tires promote a different kind of philosophy.

Valentino has been in the hole for some time, and the media will not help him any by pushing bs by his name, Valentino needs to dig deep, and start climbing. Nothing good comes easy, and for Vale to make up for what could be considered some bad karma, and failing at Ducati, his climb will be tremendous, requiring great strength, courage, spirit, and conviction.

Nothing good ever comes easy, or by switching bikes.
If I were Rossi tomorrow, I would hang on to Dani Pedrosa and pray to god my tires kept their compound. All Rossi has to do is get in front of Jorge and fight him, vs fighting his bike over race distance, that's asking quite a bit, and I suspect Jorge will continue to want to lead the race from start to finish.

@Owned.
He was exposed the day he threw his leg over the Ducati.
Oh yes it didn't suit his riding style. So that's not exposure.
No doubt his many bleating fans will have their excuses all ready to go should he not podium.
By the way I have nothing against Vale, like so many it's his one eyed fans I can't stand.
