Nothing against great riders like Jorge and Stoner or Pedrosa. But what makes me watch MotoGP are the fights between Rossi and Sete, Rossi and Max, Super Sic (RIP) Rossi and Jorge . And now with Rossi motivated and Marquez get some expierience we will have a lot fun to watch this season.
Crutch did e great job time to give him a 2013 bike to help yamaha against Honda who will rule the next race

@ Blah
Hardly any fans in Qatar. yep, you're right in comparison to Europe et al but this is a small place and being there last night showed the passion of the sport throughout the world. Track was quite dusty and pretty slippery but the big positive was the wind had died as it was blowing a gale all day. Lorenzo was imperious, not quite a Sunday Evening ride but wasn't made to work hard for the win and rode majestically, Rossi was a joy to watch in the way he overcame his earlier mistake which just shows he will fight for every point available, Marquez, Crutchlow and and all the others put on a great show NOW ISN'T THAT WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT for use mere mortals. Heres to a fantastic season

Rossi did great but he's lucky Steve parish wasn't racing because parish would easily win him and every one els on the track!!! You have to take his word for it because he likes commentating to much to go racing but hearing what it was like in his day really made me see just how much better then every one els he is!!

I enjoyed the race last night, really enjoyed it, best race for a long time. Came on here this morning thinking 'there's no way in hell there'll be posters on here slagging Rossi and undermining his ride'. I underestimated them.

Credit to the Stoaners, VR haters, and Ducati defenders who have manned up and admitted they misjudged VR46. I'm glad they have seen the light. And the light is yellow.
Now how about those who said that Marquez would bin it through inexperience and immaturity?
And how about the multitudes who called Pedrosa the favourite for 2013 ( including the majority of journalists and pundits )?
Mentioning journalists, they seem intent on inventing bad vibes between JLo and VR. Right now this only exists in their imagination and is squarely aimed at selling newspapers. There is no evidence that JLo and VR are not now on cordial terms. They are both wiser and more mature than they were in 2009 and 2010, and I see no reason why they can't fight fiercely on track in 2013 but still have mutual respect and civility off-track.
Journos are stepping beyond “reporting” and are resorting to “creating” situations, which they will no doubt exploit by bigging up otherwise minor occurrences.

How an old Dog like Rossi was the rider that most worck on this race to finish 2, if he dont have the incial probleme Lorenzo would be him troubles, and this track is not the best for Rossi, Just to prove haters that when the bike suits the style its Perfect...

How can one Roockie beat Pedrosa and just do the Job that Stoner would have do on this race, how better Pedrosa last year Beat Stoner on this track.. Very impressive for Marquez...

How can many people open there mouths after one qualify to complain about Rossi and just Cheer Dovi for the Worck Done like if they have do any Worck and then on race 7 place is where Rossi would finish...

Haters predict a lot of stuff but they never had time to say one good word about Rossi, they just had time to say you Rossi fans Dream a lot yes we Dream and Rossi is just making that Dream come True... 1 race Job done 2 place the best job possible after the mistake he did that if doesnt happen he would fight with Lorenzo, lets see how it goes th

So many people saying that he had no chance of a 4th place, never mind a podium, are now saying that 2nd was only to be expected! Saying that he only just beat a rookie, conveniently forgetting that very few others (you count them) managed to beat him, let alone catch and pass him.

Slagging Rossi and then saying it's to get back at his fans is disrespectful and shows a marked lack of intelligence.

Sometimes amusing though.
