@ Benito

I think you should read a bit of Motogp history before telling other people to.

There is hardly a commentator or rider that has not said that Casey would be good on a 2 stroke due to his low usage of electronics and a throttle control like Wayne Raineys.

If you want to see that yamaha closer to the front then it should have gone to one of those hungry young fast guy's, Rossi has had his day in the sun.

@RSMick, have you even ridden a bike before??? Sounds like you spend a lot of time trying to believe you know what other people are talking about.

Just cause TC is so prolific in pro racing doesn't mean its necessary. The guys in F1 dont use it, the guys in GPs dont need it either. It's only there to help the pilot out to make up for their lack of skill with the throttle or give them finer adjustment opportunity. Its not necessary though, really, it isn't.

The big problem with traction control is it rewards the teams with the most money and best technicians, not the teams with the better riders, it adds unneccessary costs (risk) and is a big barrier for new teams looking to jump in to the game. Dorna are trying to put everyone on the same ECU and limit TC in order to handle this, and keep the 'techs' and parts manufacturers happy, but in all reality, TC is not neccessary.

But it does help promote the idea that MotoGP has faster bikes :) That is probably the preeminent reason for it

No never ever, ever ever ridden a motor cycle.
You have to keep ging it gets funnier.
Ever wonder why they turn it down in practice?

Yamaha don't need it because the Brdgestones are designed for the Yamaha and Tom Sykes would get his kwack on pole with Bridgestones. Why hasTom started winning regular? oh yes its because they have finally sorted the TC out.

Where were you guys when Rossi was leading practice for 42mins until Jorge pipped him on the last lap. You were absent.
Where were you when he was 3rd in Qually until others put in single fast laps on their last lap. Pretty quiet then.
Compare Lorenzo's pace to Dani's.
Compare Cal's pace to those around him.
Compare Rossi's pace to most of the guys above him. Compare Nicky's pace to Dovi's. This format is misleading at best and a farce at worst. If the average of all their 5 or 6 laps was used the grid would be considerable different.

Land of trolls. @ bozgp . You'r the crapy fan. Prob a stoner fan. Wish I'll get the opportunity to meet you to cut off that your large mouth and stick it up ur ass. So that the next time you take a crap, you crap all over your mouth.

Only a fool won't appreciate what the guy has done for Gp.you think 7championship is easy to come by. He'll forever have more fans than you in whatever you do for a living, even doubt if you have any cos your way too busy craping all over our posts here.

Rossi was gifted his championships. All previous GP racers were washed up pretenders who just didn't have the skill and motivation of Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Stoner, or Marquez. The real racing only started in 2010, everything before that was make believe racing with make believe racers. All those amazing contests we witnessed between 2000-2010 were a sham, a grand facade. History has lied to us, IT WASN'T REAL!!! ROSSI IS NOT REAL!!!

Dovi on the ducati faster than Rossi !! Rossi should walk away before this gets anymore embarrassing !! Rossi on his home track should dominate . He should have won last year on a Ducati if he was truly talented. Bet casey could get on the Ducati and win Phillip island this year with out racing all year.

Rossi did more laps in the 1:48 range than anyone except Lorenzo over the weekend. The folks who say "oh he's a waste of a seat or he only won against inferior com". He won 6 races in 09 against dani, Casey, and Jorge. He had 9 wins in 09 and 7 poles . He was still racing with these guys and doing well in 10' after he broke his leg . Still beat Jorge, dani and Casey. Hell, he beat Casey even missing 4 races . On the yam, up to the Injury he had these guys under control. Say otherwise and your full of it . Oh yea Jorge beat him 2 times out of the first 3 races so that means he was killing him right? . He is 34 yrs old and STILL one of the fastest riders on the planet. So you'all think if he isn't winning that means he doesn't deserve a ride? I'm so sick of how some "fans" act. He is faster than Most riders. Can't stay on top forever. He beat Jorge 30 of 40 races b4 the injury. He beat Casey in 06,08,09,10. He beat dani in 06,08,09, he beat Jorge in 08,09 . So now he doesn't deserve a
