Go Rossi Go!

He's analysing his performance and letting his team and we all know his problems. What's wrong with that?

Instead of looking at a big picture, someone just posted a super rubbish comment. Get a life!

And, this were only free practices. LOL!

All is well, usually Rossi's team find something out towards the business end of the weekend... Lack of grip with hard rear is not such a big problem, they'll solve the issue and Rossi will roar in race if he qualifies in top5...

Ronn your a tool already trying to stir the pot and bring in your cassy monner, he always struggles during free practice and qualifying he like all the riders and techs they're working to get the best set-up tyres play a huge part in this, here in this article hes telling you just how much and what the differences are in the 2 compounds so what you call excuses I call candor, I should know lol...

you watch, he will struggle all the way to warm-up, but then Burges will work his magic and in warm up he will be fastest and ready to battle for the lead, podium for sure GO Rossi !!!! time to get your 1st win of the season.

VR, if everybody goes with the soft and you couldn't improve with the hard compound, I guess it might be a good idea to concentrate on improving the setting on the soft...

This is very funny, the guy is less the half a second from pole possition and according to Ronn he's making excuses, hahahhaaa. Don't you know that you could set the record for the track during the race and still not win. A fast lap is just that, now you have to many of those consistently to win a race. Let's wait till Sunday then we'll talk. When these guys all included try an explain something to the journalists they get label off as moanners or making excuses. If that not what you want to hear then why bother reading the comments. And that goes for everybody posting on here( Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo or Pedrosa fan) grow up.

Some of the comments... On a motorcycle (especially these 1000cc models) the bikes are all sort of the same weight and make around the same power. They all use the same tires. One suits on bike might not suit another. The variable is that all the riders are not the same size. Rossi is among the tallest riders. He and the late great 58 were among the tallest riders. They are also heavier than riders like Pedrosa or Marquez (Dani is about 5'2") Rossi is 5'10". More mass the physics change on the bike. It is not like car racing at all. Why the need for the ****e comments?

Lol......good one Ronn, seem to have hit a sore point with the Rossi fans.

I hope Rossi does well in the race, as it would not be a good look if a 9 times WC could not beat a 2 times WC on the same bike.

Rossi aiming for... Top 5?? Really?? Wasn't he supposed to be winning here? Now he's aiming to finish behind a satellite bike??? That is sandbagging at its finest. Disappointing rossi very disappointing.
