Moaning about headaches and traffic at Qatar. Moaning about brakes at Texas.

lol I don't think he's moaning at all. Things happen. But, if you apply the standard that was applied to Stoner, Rossi is moaning alright.

Rossi admitted before the austin motogp he was going to struggle here, his FP sessions are fine he will be up around fourth and that would be a good result. Rossi never as been that great on new tracks despite hondas being faster here, i.e laguna 2006 and silverstone 2011. Once this race is out the way Rossi will be back on the podium 50% -70% of the time.

Why talk negative about Rossi? What do you gain on that? Can you explain to me about Motogp. What knowledge do you know that give you right to talk about Rossi that way. What accomplishment have you done on the bike? Can you talk technical about the bike? I like to hear that from you.

I'm not a fan of Rossi ever since he put Stoner down and belittled his achievements in winning the championship on the Ducati (and more races than Rossi did while on the perfectly sorted Yamaha), but to say Rossi is moaning when he's trying to explain why he's struggling for pace is a bit ridiculous. If you don't want them to explain then we won't ever know what's happening and it will become boring.

I don't see the "moaning" comments as a slight on Rossi but as a dig at the people (largely Rossi fans) who kept accusing Stoner of moaning.

It is logical that if he has braking issues it would affect him more through sector one. I just hope the issue doesn't bring him undone and that everyone can finish the race safely. I would hate to ride one of those things with the brakes not working optimally.
