@Martin
"Qatar was blatantly a Yamaha track. Anything less than second place on a factory M1 would have been a disgrace."

And COTA is clearly a Honda track. so your comment is completly void.

oh but ocvours anything less then 2nd place at Qatar on the M1 would of been a disgrace becuase is Rossi who is on it. if it was Ben or Dovi or any other rider and they finished lower you wouldnt say a thing.

outpaced by over 1 second in Qualy, big deal, even MM said this means nothing, Rossi was otupaced in qatar by 7 seconds. he pulled back that gap where most riders would of just given up and stayed where they were. and to say he is more risky for a chance of an accident is just bollox, every rider is pushing the limits, they are all risky to have a crash.

oh Martin, you clearly have no idea what so ever do you.
Rossi is there because Yamamh knew and Know that he still has what it takes to win races, and the fact that he is a major draw card and the sponsors love him. christ even Jlo still knows he's a threat on the M1, everyone knows it appart from the blind haters.

who gives a toss if he's just infront of a CRT from QP,
you really think he will finish the race jsut infront of a CRT bike Martin? if he gets a good start he will make up alot of ground to the front 2 rows.

Wow he has a bad qualy and that doesnt merit a seat on Yamaha.

for gods sake. its just a race people settle down.
does it really matter who's faster then who or who might be struggling abit at a certain track. just enjoy the racing and hope there are some good battles goin to happen, Stop bashing the riders, any rider for that matter, these guys put their lives on the line every week doing crazy speeds only protected by a leather suit and a helmet, half of you would cry from getting carpet burn on your knee.

wake up to yourselfs ffs.
