All you guys slating Rossi should give it a rest. He rode another good race, and proved that he's learned from his mistake of Mugello by cleverly avoiding Bautista today. I sympathised with AB last time, but this time, really...ambition overshoots ability...

Anyway, all the hype about Rossi's pending dominance was based on a return to his "beloved M1".

Unfortunately, he is only on a YFR M1. His "beloved M1" had go-faster parts that no-one else had, and special tyres. On his "beloved M1" he is faster than everyone. Dave will give you the statistics to prove this...although it seem that "Dave's not here, man".

It isn't fair to compare Rossi's performance on the normal factory bike. Yamaha will see the light soon.

TrueFan, Yes, I think Lorenzo did the requisite set up work to ensure he could manage the race distance well. Pedrosa's battle with Marquez was mighty. He sustained great pressure and never really lost his rhythm or line, and Marquez's "moment" was a great display of a confidant and competent rider who will let the bike shake its head and then settle down into a rhythm again. I think you may be correct. Dani is riding extremely well, and the engine situation is clearly in Honda's favour.

I dont know how you know so much about Special tyres or special parts, i dunno where you guys go serch for that type of information.. Its embaressing to say that Rossi had any kind of special tyre or parts, if you wach how Yamaha worck.. The probleme is the on old times Rossi never had one rider so strong like Lorenzo to chanlange him.. Yamaha only worck for one rider when then notice that the 2 rider is not performing has he should performe.. Lorenzo like many people had say was number 2 rider and never had to complain about Yamaha or Rossi with speacial tyres ETC If Yamaha notice that Rossi is worcking that is trying to give to Yamaha the best results he can do, Yamaha will continuing support Rossi, now if Rossi crash and start to be desapointed with himself even Yamaha Managers loss there faith on Rossi.. What Rossi have done on is live its only because of its bravery and unger to Win when he was younger just like Marquez is now doing, Rossi style was allways about take ca

i style was allways about take care of tyres just be there and attack on the final that is when the race finish, even on Ducati Rossi try to understand is limits and do is pace do way he could do that way he avoid so many crashes has Hayden and also has Casey did riding the Ducati.. Who was the best Ducati today? Dovi you know why? because he accept that Ducati couldn t mach the racing pace of rivals and just try to do is best, he was 9 place but did some points, now where are the others riders? they crash because they ride like youngers not thinking to much they just try to stay there and try all until they crash just to keep one 5 or 6 place.. One professinal rider have to be a man have to accept the limits that is bike have, do you really think that was funny to Dovi loss to Smith?? should Dovi had crash trying to keep Smith beahind? Dovi just did right he try is best respect from my part to him..

Let me assure you that 4th place is better than a seat in the kitty litter. You actually get points for 4th you see.

A factory bike in the gravel is very much the same as a satellite bike or a CRT in the gravel. Nil points and a large rebuild bill....

@Balance, or Vilas, you might have missed that my comment was "tongue in cheek" due to translation into Portuguese. I'm just messing with you, not really bagging Rossi. He rode a pretty good race.

Where is all the 'hype' that people are talking about ?
Before the race Rossi says that he still needs to find 2 or 3 tenths before can compete, in the race he runs 2 or 3 tenths off the pace. Sounds OK to me.
If you mean from the fans, I still don't see it. At the moment, whether Rossi has a good race or a bad race the score on here is about 7 to 3 for the hater posts. Usually saying it's because of the fans of 2 years ago.??

Some good riders crashed in the race, so credit to those that didn't, the front 4....Dovi....Bradders, etc.
