Waiting for fourth different winner in fourth round of the season,, Rossi winning this round will put the already heated up world championship on fire for sure... Want even tighter title fight...

We'll keep hoping for the best Champ but on the reals one can never be #1 for life, a time will come when lorenzo, mac, pedrosa, carl and the likes too will loose out to junior riders. Its nothing of shame just the fact.
@Tom you are so right but next time try using (action speaks louder then voice ) in the right context. No hating mate.

It is a good circuit for him, so hopefully he does well.
Its massive competition he's up against though. Loving watching Marc Marquez mix it up with these guys!

And, Rossi is fourth in the championship. Its not too bad. COTA was very disappointing and Jerez was also a bit of a damp squib, but he's still in touch.

I'm not exactly astounded with the brilliance of Rossi's return, but he's doing OK. Just needs to get his eye in a bit more. A win would be good for him.

The results may say otherwise, but im still convinced this should be a Honda track, especially now. Stop go, the Honda is great on the breaks and getting out of the corner.

One of Pedrosa's better tracks for Qually too.

Think another Honda 1-2 could be on the cards (Or Marquez first DNF, its bound to come soon)

If he got on the podium here with the Ducati I would expect he can do it with the M1 too. The weather could play a big part in the race, especially if qualifying is wet, it could mix things up .

@Ron......I had the same thoughts. I posted earlier along the lines that the days of 'Yamaha track's' may well be over. ( at least for the time being )
They have a new frame but doesn't seem to offer an improvement, since one rider is going to use it and the other isn't.
The Honda riders have a win each so confidence is high for them.
Jorge? we'll see whether Marc's move on him last race will inspire him to get revenge........ or not.
I wouldn't mind seeing Rossi as the 4th winner though.
PS. I don't mean revenge as in barging him, simply that Jorge may be fired up and out to beat him.

The problem with VR threads is they get hijacked by pro-anti VR clowns.

Take this gem by 'valentino keerthy' from last time out

"...mark my words its gonna be a headache for Jlo and dani.....go go go vale!!! You are the winner "

Clearly Keerthy your words weren't really worth marking.

I think Rossi has the right to talk the talk before the race, every rider likes to project positively even if they dont feel it. It would give his opposition an advantage if he was to say claim that he was struggling.
