Valentino Rossi,
9 time World Champion
105 Win
158 Podiums

What have you haters done with your lives??
you sit there and criticise Rossi for every thing he does, he gets asked by media how is sessions went and when it tells it how it is you say he's whinging.

when he does extremely well in Qatar you all had nothing to say, now at a new track where he and Yamaha are both struggling you come out firing with all guns that he's being owned and exposed,

is MM not currently faster then the current WC, and his fellow teammate who almost won the WC last year. ??

no your focus is all about who ever is infront of Rossi.

You can keep your tub-thumping and chest beating - what a load of old b0ll0x (as usual).

We can't know what race day will bring - but its a long lap, with a couple of looong straight bits. The factory Honda's may have the edge, but the Factory Yams still have the edge over everything else.

JL/VR/DP/MM have the tools to leave the rest behind. So there's your top 4 (as will/should be the case all year). Just the order will change, or if one or more has an incident.

Lower than 4th is a catastrophe for ANY of these guys at the flag - as their teams KNOW they have the kit. Even 4th means the rider didn't perform - there's nowhere to hide and little margin - but then that's why they get the best kit & the the big bucks.

A HRC bike should win today - that seems certain tho.

what good would come out of Yamaha signing Dovi, yer he is a good rider, but what has he done in the last few years. he was on the best bike, a Factory Honda remember. he won nothing,

Rossi won on that M1 46 times, why would they want to sign up another rider when they know Rossi can deliver on that M1, he already proved it still has ability to race with the top guys at Qatar. Yer there is always going to be someone faster, or better at a certain track. According to you haters Rossi needs to qualy in Pole every race, and win every race ,

Ladies & gents,
What is more important to all genuine Moto GP fans is the last few years have been quite boring and three very important things have happened in the last 6 months, 1) Stoner has quit & gone fishing, 2) most importantly Marques has taken his place & is far faster & more exciting that CS ever was & 3) Rossi is back on his M1. these 3 things have turned our sport round into what it should be, exciting & unpredictable and for Christ sake stop slagging off the riders, these guys have more talent in their little finger than anyone posting on this site, lets just enjoy having our sport back.

you haters are seriously trippin, you think because a rider is slower in Qualy that he's all over..

Rossi was pulling laps in Qatar half a second faster then everyone else, a rider who is all washed up and who should retire or his ride be given to someone else doesnt do that. he crashes out or sits at the back of the field. Rossi is far from that. he's a fighter, he's got exceptional race pace and can string together fast laps lap after lap after lap to pull the field in , then makes his pass in the corners where most riders just sit and wait to pass on the straights.

Rossi owned by MM, i dont think so, they already went head to head and look who come out in front.

@Martin (not Whitmarsh) go to bed. Rossi is 34 and skooled the kids at qatar. Of course he's rubbish at fast laps...first thing you lose is speed, but gain endurance in old age

How much does a team care about Sponorship??? are you for real,??

Yamaha didnt have a major sponser when Rossi left, for 2 years. Rossi return and all of a sudden they have a major sponer..

how much do you care about sponsorship.
Financial support for your team can increase team credibility,
Use cash, products, and/or services provided by sponsors to enhance your team experience and
Team branded gear, clothing, stickers, stationary
Kick-off or post event parties
Donor appreciation
Team member recognition or fundraising recruiting incentive prizes
Team Village decor and/or catering
An opportunity to partner and network with the community.

Yer but really, what teams needs sponsorship..
