i think the track is 2 big and 2 wide with some very weird corners, also the 1st gear corners on to big long straights make the race to much about power and top end speed in a straight line, this is not what we want. smooth flowing tracks much better.

p.s. Valentino's bike was throwing shapes at the chicanes

More respect for Cal? Really?

He's being touted for a factory ride after finishing ahead of Rossi in a single race. ONE race.

Looks like more of u guys need grey cells in your cranium vibed together.

Good god, you don't have to be that thick. Its not hard to grasp that a rider in Rossi this week never had competitive pace all weekend.

Why not?
Why didnt he have the pace?
Lorenzo did.
Cut the crap!
As great a rider as Rossi is,and i expected him to do better,he failed on this occasion.
Deal with it instead of shi**ing on Crutchlow for having the nerve to beat him.

re: "When Yamaha boosts the engine (something JLo has been asking for)"

the engine's already "boosted", short of a GT2860, it's as boosted as it's gonna get. that's why tech3's had full spec engines going on a few seasons. whatever "nuggets" were in the crossplane...? they got "mined" and processed during the 7 year reign of rossi. there's nothing to hide or hold back and can be let out of our hands. cue engine lease agreements.

Lorenzo did.

Simples, it never got going for him this weekend. He had issues with front suspension and brakes. Not for a single session he looked like challenging for top 3 or top 5. He looked labored.

I dunno what you're getting onto here? Are you trying to suggest in 2 weeks time Cal became a better rider than Rossi and Rossi lost all of his skill he put on showcase in Qatar?

Rossi got beat by Cal fair in this race, fair enough he did well but its just one race, A race where two weren't even involved in a battle. Cal did better than Rossi today and he has my respect for that but saying Cal is a better rider than Rossi, saying Rossi should be given the boot and Cal should take his seat after 1 race is way ott.

epic wobbles. as i've mentioned in the past and we saw today, unsorted M1's with all their electrics don't know to keep the pointy end into the wind.

No mate,i am not suggesting that Crutchlow suddenly became a better rider than Rossi.
What i am suggesting is that Rossi is a human being,NOT a living God.
And Human beings make mistakes!
Can you point out where i have said that Rossi should be booted out of Motogp?
Have i said Crutchlow should take Rossis seat?
Where are you getting that from?
You seem to be putting words in my mouth.

It pains me a bit seeing all this hatred towards Vale, a racer who's done for the sport more than anybody else in the recent era. If not ever.
