@FZ1

But its not that, its about how he is the greatest thing ever, its more or less worship.

And in the other sessions, the past two races, was he riding around problems then too?

Valentino Rossi

“Unfortunately today was a worse day compared to yesterday. We started quite badly this morning because we had some problems with the rear tyre so we struggled very much in the practice. We had a lot of question marks so we wanted to try the same setting this afternoon. In fact the tyre had a problem because this afternoon it was not so bad. My rhythm and pace for the race is quite good, unfortunately especially Lorenzo, Marquez and Pedrosa are a bit faster. Like the other races, in the qualifying I am unable to do what I want, when I try to push more I create some problems with the bike. The other riders are better than me to use the extra grip from the new tyre, so I have to start from the third row. My rhythm is not so bad so we have to try to fix something.”

You have to hand it to this Marquez kid,he is something special.If he manages to remain injury free throughout his MotoGP career,you get the feeling some great things are going to come from him.
No doubt about it,Lorenzo has his work cut out this season.Hope it stays dry tomorrow.

Why is everyone banging on about Rossi. Hes had his day and he was exceptional back then, no question. Today is about Marquez who has taken racing a motorbike to a new level but its also about a great great effort from Dovi. Good man.

New Marc has shown everyone how to ride the Honda we all know why some riders decided to go fishing and not try to put up a fight. Dani the boat is leaving Casey said hurry up or it will be too late.

Marco(?) Marquez-the most exiting rider in MotoGP since the early Rossi days.But the kid is riding his luck,with his "win at any cost" style-he must have used his nine lives up by now? Either he,or one of his fellow riders is going to pay the price for his reckless riding one day soon.Many riders make mistakes and knock someone off occasionally-that's GP Racing,but Marc has clocked up a lifetime of "mistakes" in just over 2 years of racing.

Hey guys, It is clear the fact that Rossi is not the same pilot. The Sport just follow its natural pace in which Stoner is the Icon. Valentino seems to have natural issues just like Scrummager did at the end of his career. Time is a bitch. Be objective not passional. Its time for MMarquez.
