Love seeing all the comments on just one fast lap let's see what happens in the race . To say Dovi is better than Rossi is a joke. How many wins / titles does he have?

All too easy to pick on Rossi right about now, but just ask Spies what its like riding for a team with sour chemistry. All due credit for Dovi though! Will it last over race distance? Going to be fun to watch. Now how much of Dovi's magical electronics package will be shared with the other three bikes?

Amazing performance by Dovi on what is essentially the same bike Rossi rejected in 2012! I am so praying for him to finish ahead of Rossi.

Imagine how much more Dovi could do with more resources dedicated toward R&D, as they were during the Rosisi era.

What does this say about VR then? Great when on only the best gear? Go Dovi is all I can think.

Maybe Dovi has been using some 'alternative' methods to channel Casey when riding. Sorry that only works when the channeled person is dead I believe.

Its great to have Dovi in the pace, I was not happy when Honda dropped him and the comments they made about him. His driving style is more suitable for the bike than others. But this risaises a intresting thought, where to go with the bike? Dovi seems to be reasonably fast with it but others are nowhere.

I dont understand all that childish Rossi bashing, the man have won championships on 500cc 2 stroke, and that is ultimate prove he has some superb riding skills. Ducati is so hard to ride, dont really no if Hayden has the pace anymore to be frontrunner, but look at Iannone and Spies. Iannone is fast rider from Moto2, playing around with Marquez and Espargaro last season, and hes ridingstyle doesent suit the Ducati. Its better than Spies tough, especially being rookie in Moto GP. It has been just horrible to watch Spies, no grip, the bike is sliding and losing that front end...

Great performance by Dovi, but I fear the tires will be burned early as has been the case in recent seasons when Ducati has a rider that looks competitive.
