Shouldn't be forgotten that Rossi qualified on the third row last year, in seventh place (which was actually pretty good qualifying for him on the ducati)

He is therefore relatively good around here in all conditions. A front row start could be just what he needs.

He really needs to start pulling out some very competitive qualifying times!!!

As a Rossi fan, I hope he still can fight for a win here, but I think Cal may be a surprise winner if conditions are less than perfect. It would be fun to see Rossi and Cal fighting for the win in the rain! In any event, I hope for a good race because gp is looking increasingly boring compared to sbk.

i seriously doubt to see vale wins in le mans , he still struggling to find that ideal setup for his M1 , althought he rode ducati he made two impressive podiums in france , on the other hand , honda has no where to go , no long straight , no fast corner it's a tight circuit with two chicanes and a very hard braking in turn one and down the middle straight pedrosa undoubtedly won't win there also mac it's gonna be between the biggest enemies ever rossi lorenzo , it's all about setting up the bike well during the free practice

python i like your post dude but you messed up , do never ever compare SBK to motogp , motogp is the premier class top riders , top mechanical technologie , top tracks and the biggest media cover with F1 , the cahmpionship that a dumb guy like melandri and guintoli are dominating when a satellite team like pramac needs a rider after capirossi injury in germany 2013 they borrow the top SBK super hero guintolli so any way i'm sorry but don't compare heaven by hell !!

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...DB8

I think that sums it up so far.Rossi is in touch but just needs to get that first win of the season under his belt to lift his morale.
Confidence is everything in this game,and noone knows this more than Rossi.He needs that shot in the arm.Dont forget,he hasnt won since Oct 2010.Thats a long time for a rider of his caliber to go without victory.Once he gets that first victory,i think he will be up for it.

For me I have yet to see Rossi regain his alien status. It's obvious from Jerez where we saw Rossi attempting to mimic rookie Marquez's riding style that he is desperate to find the speed he is missing. Right now the championship is a three horse race between Marquez, Dani and Jorge. In this company I seriously doubt Rossi will win another Moto GP race unless it's gifted.

cals a (please fill in ur own choice of word here)

he wont kick anyones ass coz he'll b leaping off his bike as usual...infact even his own team think he's a waste of time...hence why they decided to replace him along time ago. fast practice an qual times mean Jack wen u just cant race... hence the name of the sport he's in 'bike racing" not bike speed trials ... i say get Pol on there asap an chuck cal to ducati. typical english towny stuck up his own ass attitude he has will suit Ducati well

The sad thing is Cal is faster than Lorenzo. He just doesn't have all of Yamaha backing him (Lorenzo) or Dorna backing him (Rossi) with BBC checking out, I would say it's time for Cal to bail and get in to WSBK on a good team before his credit evaporates.

I wonder what the good pensioners of Canada think about an all Spanish national championship replacing MotoGP? ... 'Floating' down a river with out a paddle.
