The problem is can't fight it..understanding new circuit is more difficult if you are older..I guess it will be the same in Silverstone (last year he's struggle)..he's 34 now..product of 2 stroke era..when motoGP owned by MAN..I hope he's still able to give us entertainment even if he doesn't win race..but winning 1 or 2 races is better..

It still amazes me how many people on this site still cant get Stoner out of their heads.Did he frighten you that much?

Back on topic,every rider has to deal with mechanical issues.Yesterday it was Rossis turn.No big deal.It could have been worse,at least he finished with some decent points.

Before, if Stoner said something negative... He is moaning/making excuses.

Since before, if Rossi said something negative, it was his input to his engineers, and fans.

They just did the same thing... Answered questions from an interview.

Moaning is for people saying negative things even if not asked!

I miss 46 and 27 racing together. But I like it more today. Except for the endless debate and bashing.
These two are my idols until MM93 came. :)

Godspeed everyone! More power to MotoGP. Entertain and educate us more :)


Sorry for the unintentional name stealing. I really should register but all the 'pre-teens' on the site have put me off until "Drake" mentioned the filter.

With regard to the brake issue, has anyone seen an image? I've had a very mildly warped disc before and the vibration under braking was unreal, so if only a chip in this case, that puts things out of balance, that's it, you're behind, these guys are at the very edge...

"Casey retired due to unfavorable rule changes and being a moaner.
Sete retired due to injuries casued by CAPIrossi @ Catalunya in 2006.
Biaggi was blacklisted by Honda and Dorna. But was winning championships in SBK while Rossi was grumbling at Ducati."

Rossi did not retire despite unfavorable rule changes and did not even moan.
Rossi did not retire despite injuries and old age.
Rossi did not retire even when Ferrari and F1 wanted him.
And Rossi did not retire even during his all time low.
However, all of your mates quit and chose to retire because Valentino Rossi despite being on the same situation was still kicking their @r$e$!

commentators could see his bike behaving strangley, even alot of real fans who have been watching racing for years could see it,

The blind fools who are just here to post negative comments choose not to see any of this.

just like last year at Assen when Rossi a huge chunk of tyre come off his rear he had to pull in and change bikes.
haters on here claimed he gave up, even though there was a huge hole in his rear tyre.

Still have faith in you Rossi, bring on the next round, podium is on the cards at Jerez. specially if he wins at his fav track is definatly going to crash haha
