After looking like a rookie for the first couple of laps, Rossi showed what a great racer he is. True, he might only have caught the satellite machine and the lesser, struggling Hondas,but when it comes to putting in great race laps, there's no doubting Rossi's abilities. He probably learnt more about his new machine in that race than everything so far in testing, so I imagine he's going to get closer and closer to Jorge as each race passes.

An excellent display from Val and Marc. Will make for an interesting season ahead. Got my Laguna Seca tickets lined up.

I wonder how many fair weather supporters will jump back on the VR46 bandwagon as the trolls have gone deafeningly silent.

Wouldn't that be something! Given it will probably be Rossi's last year in 2014, the MotoGP promoters should be spending enormous amounts of money to try to make it happen.

ok ok, i am man enough to say im a Rossi hater, not one of those ones who continously bashes him on this site though, He did have the pace in testing but honestly i never though he could deliver it on race day. i was one to think he was finished and couldnt compete with these gus anymore,

when he made that mistake and fell back to 7th and Pedro, MM and Cal had that 8sec gap i thought , yep, Rossi back in his usuall position. For him to pull back that gap agaisnt those guys and pass them all i was shocked.. and Impressed.

The guy still has the hunger and talent to race at his maximum level again. I take my hat off to him, well dont Vale. he made that race very excitiing to watch. at one stage when he caught up with cal i was actually rooting for him to get past Pedro and MM.
even his post race interview and gestures towards jlo and MM was outstanding.

In closing, can honestly say i am no longer a Rossi hater.
