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.

and when he does average in QP all the haters come out saying he doesnt deserve that bike or he should retire, even in the last few mins he took pole only to be knocked back by a mere 0.096s and they all call him a disgrace or finished . then he comes out in the warmup and puts it on top and all the haters are no where to be seen or have nothing to say.

Contrary to some wild claims, Crutchlow does not have 'full factory support' for this race. Neither does he have one of JL's bikes or any new parts. The Yamaha guys in Cal's garage are the factory engineers for Rossi and JL, and have been routinely coming in to collect data from Crutchlow's team since Jerez. They're there to gather info for the factory riders, not to help #35!

@ 46 OverLord "TalentFan, you are typical example of a person who -when he cannot find anything to say negative about Rossi- attacks his fans instead."

Read my post again - I was actually trying to protect the more moderate VR Fan from being tainted by association, when one of VR's poorer disciples spouts nonsense and total fabrication.

What makes you think its ok to just make things up and present them as facts (and lining up a possible get-out for your hero just in case - hardly showing confidence in your man btw)?

If VR wins I'll applaud a fine ride, as I would any of the riders that earn their result. A pity you won't do the same.

Let's talks some sense here. Rossi is fast primarily because his recent work on braking issues seems to have resolved his problems. His words, not mine. So perhaps this will translate into a competitive race pace as well. I think and hope so.Lorenzo's return is remarkable. for anyone to suggest otherwise is idiotic. I cannot recall any other rider coming back this quickly after an injury of this sort, and they are all tough men. No, Jorge must be able to block the pain well and hopefully he scores some points. Really, what we should wish for most is a fast, competitive, and safe race.
