You and I both know no rider has enough talent and skills to came from 7th twice and beat guys who supposed to finish in front of him. Rossi was racing against Criville and rober Jr if you remember. and now racing against the new generation. There has never bean a rider in the history of motorcycle racing to do what Valentino Rossi has done, his sheer determination, skills and racecraft is unmatched by anyone before and after him.

and fr Bradl, he has factory bike(Chassis and Engine), so yes he is on factory bike. and for Cal, his bike is maybe 10% different from what factory guys have, same chassis, same engine(one engine more), same electronics, maybe not brakes, but at the moment they are almost identical. and again I say Cal couldn't produce anything better even on factory ride.

Lad,i know Rossi is a great rider mate.I am not arguing differently.Why are people getting so hot and bothered because i praised Crutchlow for his efforts?
You say Crutchlow will not do any better on a factory bike.That is pure conjecture.He has not tried riding Rossis or Lorenzos bike so we cant make that judgement can we?
That 10% difference you say between sat and factory bikes is possibly the difference between winning and losing when the lap times are this tight.Afterall,we are talking tenths of seconds,even hundredths of seconds sometimes between the lap times of those who win and those who dont.

I see that 12 hours after asking 46 crystal clear to provide evidence that i wrote Rossi off,he still hasnt done so.Not surprised really.
If you are going to accuse people of saying things,at least have the evidence to back it up.If not,say nothing!
Cheers.

For me it was Rossis battle wit MM. Both delivered a fantastic show.
Could it be that Lorenzo ends up being a multiple champion - and nobody cares? Bit like Stoner? Looking at all the forums, that's the feeling I get.

Did you see where Cal lost it?? it was not due to speed at all. in fact he was in front of Ross, then came aside still in front. Cal was to confused about when Vale is gonna brake. Cal did it too hard and nearly crashed, he was lucky he didn't. mate watch that moment again and ask yourself was it due to bike or was it Cal unable to match Rossi.

Yes i did see where Rossi passed.He out braked Crutchlow like he has out braked many over the years.Again,i am not arguing the point that Rossi is a better rider than Crutchlow.I am simply wondering why you and others are so wound up because i gave praise to Crutchlow for his efforts.
Is there a rule on this site which says you are only allowed to praise certain riders?
Crutchlow has said himself that his bike is not as good as the ones that Rossi and Lorenzo are riding.Who am i to argue.I think he knows the situation in the garage more than we do.

Ha ha Rossi out braked Cal,, words well chosen,, great work with keyboard...
Atlast Rossi stole the show,, next comes cal and then MM,, there have been better results on debut for someothers down in the history... May be great credit for having balls to decided to fight it out with that bloody ruthless old warrior...

Still wondering how to classify JL

@ 99

He tweeted the other day that he didn't know why he lost so much in the straight because he's running the same kit (engine/chassis/electronics/suspension).

It was a great Ride From Rossi Also Marquez Cal Lorenzo ............

Qatar is simply a Yamaha Track if you look at the results over the years apart from the Stoner Factor Honda has never really done well here!!!

Cal Did a great Job on a bike that obviously lost out on the straights fro anyone watching it was plain to see

The Ego of many here seem to think that only one rider should ever be mentioned A great Racer he is yet he can only be a great racer if he has others to race against ...........
