@ Motogpfan,

Yes I agree, he is low in self-belief at the moment.

He said in an interview he couldn't go as fast as Jorge-Cal on hot lap because he doesn't have the feeling with the bike to push 110% that will only come with time.

It's a strange comment from Rossi, coupled also with him so happy and surprised to top the timesheets and there you go... Lack of results for so long definitely got to him a bit.

I'm not worried in the least. It'll be the factory boys gunning for the "W", no doubt. Not Ducati though, unfortunately. A Good rule of thumb for using this forum.....ignore all unregistered comments.

I have a question for all you guys that already starting to proclaim Dovi as better then Rossi. how many races have Dovi won, and don't tell me it's because of the bike case he was Honda and then with Yamaha and which are ten times better then Ducati, you guys are funny if you think that he is going to finish ahead of any of the Yams or Hondas. S..t even Bradley will finish in front of him. I'm not a Rossi fan, but you have to be at least be realistic (Realist good comments by the way). Remember Barbera clssifeid on the front row last season only to find himsefl going backwards after a couple of laps. A fast lap on new tires is not difficult, race distance is an entirlely different matter.

I have no doubt that he will be at the pointy end when the time comes.But as to predicting the winner,my crystal ball is a bit cloudy!
Cant call it.Naturally i want to see Lorenzo win,but Pedro,Marquez,Cal will be making it as hard for him as possible.
As for the old fella?
Can you really count him out when on an M1?
Lets hope we get the opening race we all crave.No crashes and a close clean race.Let the best man win!
