@martin

Are you comments based on fact or do you just make this drivel up to amuse yourself

Jorge said he was pushing "beyond 100%" at the start and did a 1.55.5 so high 1.45 - low 1.55 was not within Jorge reach, I agree he would have won regardless, and Rossi said as much.

Please use some actual facts and don't make out you know what you're talking about, which is contrary to the evidence presented.

@Martin (not Whitmarsh)

why would rossi find extra 1 sec per lap.

are you referring to ducati/rossi era? that was ended last year. WAKE UP! as if rossi crossed the line 22sec behind lorenzo.

he only need to finds few more tenths of second to match lorenzo.

why are folk surprised about vale's second half pace ?

try and remember, he is SEVEN times world champ.
he's famous for being able to ride 500cc old syle(vintage now) pocket rockets, he could outride anyone else on dead rubber.these 1000cc are no worse and probably easier than 500's on boots.
he famous for mastering no grip circumstances better than anyone else.
he willing to tank bash with other tank bashers.
folk seem to have forgotten why he is also nick named the GOAT.
and why he is the only gp er with his own army of fans, the fans that moto gp needs..

I'm not even sure he needs to find a few tenths, I think it's very close race pace wise, though Rossi may have trouble with Lorenzo's consistency.

Remember what Jorge said Saturday "I don't trust the pace people have shown" remember who's data he has access to.

Think we're in for a great season, and MM is going to be very special indeed

Beating Lorenzo means being able to ride like a metronome. You can't do that if you have to plough through the pack. Vale lost his chance of a win in saturday's 15 min. shootout. If he can 'fix' that and get a place on the front row I don't see why he shouldn't be able to beat Lorenzo.

Come on bro! What site have you been on for all of these months? For the past TWO YEARS, anything regarding Rossi was a "fat chance in hell", etc. according to the naysayers. Hell, when Rossi qualified 7th, everybody proclaimed that he wouldn't even sniff a podium.

I do not think that the issue is one of outright pace. The real question is whether Vale could have got to racing proximity of JLO and then what would have happened. I have no doubt he would have got faring-bashing closeness to JLO. And, between these two, when it comes to duking it out, anything can happen. For me, in any paint to paint duel between the GOAT and JLO, I am betting on #46. In outright pace, JLO over the Old Man anyday.

This race proved very little really, everyone knows Rossi is fast, the Yamahas outclassed the Hondas this weekend , he has more at stake , and really pushed to prove it , and it was a great performance , However I still do not like HIM at all !!!!
