just reading through the usuall dribble.
i dont get it. Rossi is on the 3rd row and finishes 2nd in Qatar.. haters are no where to be seen.
COTA he's on the 3rd row, struggles at a new track and haters are out in force..
Improves here at Jerez and puts in on the 2nd row and still they turn up and take cheap shots at him.
you dont watch motogp for the racing, you just watch it to see how bad Ross will do so you can jump on this site and rant..

anyway. looking forward to the race 2morro, jlo for the win ovcourse but anything can happen if they all get a good start. Jlo will need a better start then he did last round.

Well what a to do! I do't think that Rossi can do it tomorrow and I speak as a Rossi fan. He just does not have the raw qualifying pace anymore and although he obviously thought he had a chance of a front row fell chasing it, as did others of course. I will be interested to see how that effects his race confidence because his race pace is good but he is a racer and pushed too far in quali. I still think that his grid slot would be good enough but falling off does not do your confidence any good at his age.

Cal is a Tech3 rider and gets what that entails. I think that if (a big if) he can continually finish in front of Rossi he may get updates to try to take points away from the Repsol boys. If I were Yamaha I would wait till the summer break and decide if I want Cal riding over his head on a machine that can mix it up with the Honda's. He has to be a team player and stay away from Jorge which is another big risk for them.

I think he's improved a great deal this year but lets not assume he would take it to Jorge if he had the #99 machine. The last few tenths are the hardest. Just ask the other factory M1 rider.

if any of you are interested in actually knowing how tomorrows race would play out, you should go onto the motogp site and check the analysis of fp4......lorenzo may seem real fast here but when it comes to race pace, few riders are very close to him


but again...credit where its due....he dominated Q2 like a boss...
