Having some good fun is always good, not a hint of what happened in mugello lap1,, not being carried away by pressure and remaining composed is one of Rossi's prime characters, but these days that's just not enough... QUALIFICATION QUALIFICATION QUALIFICATION

Good friday takes the expectations up,,
Good saturday takes it even higher but the twist is in the last few minutes of saturday where the tides suddenly turn against him,,
Sunday asusual in this season is the day to swim against the tide to preserve some dignity and respect... After chequered flag haters will again start crying, oh Dovi is better, cal on sat bike beat him.. Etc etc...

Desperately expecting change this weekend

well maybe at last Rossi in his attempted humour has finally woken up and realised he aint the King anymore respect for what he has done. The best way to take the heat off when you are under performing is to make light of it has he finally come to terms with the fact there are much better younger riders on the grid than him and maybe he should have retired after Ducati and gone into TV punditry or maybe not they couldnt afford him

Valentino knows exactly what he is up against this year and has openly admitted he is going to find it hard! He has even said that he will be happy if he wins just one race this year as he has a lot to catch up with. Give the man credit for having a laugh at himself and keeping everything in perspective as he has never said he is going to win the championship or anything like it. Valentino Rossi is a legend for what he has done and nobdoy can take that away from him. He is doing something he loves and giving millions a lot of pleasure watching him!

Also, for all those that slag him off, just take a look at that unbelievable move he made on Jorge on the last corner of the last lap - it takes your breath away it is so magnificent!! Not many would even think it possible - Valentino did !!!

I agree Rossi has done some great moves but you have to go back a great number of years to remember them, it is when that happens its time to mov on.

I don't live in the past like his fans, I look to the future and want to see some great racing, last thing I want is to watch Rossi continue to go down like he s now.

Yes he laughs at his poor performance but deep down he would have to hate the fact that he is no longer seen as a threat or the great one on the track.

It started with Stoner beating him whilst riding a bad bike and now a rookie kid is beating him, very sad, very sad indeed.

sorry Podster, but some of his moves he has done in his career will never be forgotten, even by the haters,

the pass in 09 was one of the greatest passes of all time in motogp.
no one expected it, even Jlo said "he cannot pass me there its impossible"

what living in the past got to do with anything, are you saying you never remember some of the things you did when you were younger? some would say its time for you to move on and stop living in the past.

and just on that. the rookie isnt just only beating Rossi, he's beating everyone.

very very sad.
