Rossi basically took a huge paycut to come back to Yamaha so I speculate that it isnt so much him returning thats giving them a financial burden... I imagine he brought along some sponsors also...

I just get the feeling that warmup result is actually reflecting the race result but with small changes here and there,,

Rossi should really sense the opportunity presented and go for the full points fight...

I'm really having a hard time trying to figure out of you are kidding 90% or you are just that special, really.

"As far as I know his collarbone is fixed with operation. Titanium plate, likely stronger than original bone. And medical also cleared him to take part in warmup. So no excuses."
Where did you get that for God's sake. So Lorenzo is now a kind of Wolverine? You made half a good point before saying Yamaha was cheap, but that's just half the truth.
Anyways....If you got all wet because Rossi topped the warm up, I can't imagine your yellow panty parade if he wins the race.

Win or not the name of which you speak will be spoken on this site, good or bad. If Lorenzo does podium, he's a hero, if not, well he has a broken collarbone. Either way he's really brave for even coming out to warmup. I guess when you're this close in championship points... Marquez got a few battle wounds too... these guys get paid well to do what they do and sometime they don't even think twice...

Please stop. You're not doing Rossi any favours with fantastical nonsense and blatant moon-eyed bias.

It is over-zealousness and frankly fundamentalist-extremist looking behaviour that makes a Poster look unhinged, his posts cause for derision, and tends to paint all Rossi fans with a thick coat of loony.

You're a VR Fanatic - we get it. But readers can read a situation and think for themselves, and won't be swayed by sychophantic drivel. Two words... seek help.

Lol, if Rossi does bad in Free Practice or Warm up all his fans tell us it's ONLY this or that.

He does well in warm up by .001 of a sec when the 3 key players are not 100% fit or set up and he is King.

Like I said before, if he doesn't win this weekend with so many having crashed then he will never win.

Titanium is light but not that light. It still slowed JoL down a small fraction hauling that around the track.

Me ? I only look at race pace and Jorge has gobbs of that. Even with a titanium weight disadvantage!

Called my bookie and went with MM. Why ? I liked the odds better. It is my money after all and I would like to win some more.

If i understand only Lorenzo is the rider trully injure.. Yes Marquez crash but he is ok to race.. If Medicals say that Lorenzo can race is because he can race even if its natural he have pain.. That dont mean that Rossi will have live esay to win this race, many punks here try to say that if Rossi dont win he will never win but thats not true, racing have a lot of variables, and if i would respect some of the opininans of this stupid experts Motogp would be one bad competicion.. Because on there view Rossi has a rider was worst then Dovi worst then hayden ETc and now loock at those riders, Many british slag and bash Cal Crutchlow on is 1 and 2 year and now they loock like btches saying give CAL one factory oh please he is so good etc.. people here make me sick

9 times world Champion, try to do the same has Rossi you bullsht people, Rossi message for you punks
