I also bealive on Rossi.. i know that this track has been like home for Pedrosa and Marquez is also very fast, the track is good for Honda is what we can say.. But there is no way that i put my money on Pedrosa or marquez with Rossi on track, even knowing that they are favorits, i just feel that Rossi will puch for one victory here and its a long race, i bealive he will make a good worck for is pace and a race is a race..

Go Rossi keep focus and bring the best result possible

He looked good. Every time he got moving he ran into traffic. I don't like to put a lot of weight into "ideal lap times" but for what its worth he did have the 2nd fastest ideal lap. "For those who don't know what I'm talking about its the 4 fastest sectors thru a session combined to make 1 lap time" . Overall he did string a lot of mid 22's together, I'm confident he can fight for it this weekend again.

It is probably a very good idea to get the bike dialed before attempting to put in a fast practice lap, no need for any heroics, just be in the top 10. Heroics in practice lead to get offs. And we are going to see more and more until someone gets really hurt because they are being forced to do hot laps in practice without being ready.

If Rossi wins again this weekend (..and Pedrosa falls down the pecking order), this will really shake up the championship.........especially because Lorenzo won't score any points (..and Rossi has already had two non-scoring races this season).

Looking at several riders throughout the history of motogp crashing to miss races, leaves us wondering about the level of consistency of THE DOCTOR. Apart from what he achieved miserly very few crashes, DNF's and race misses speaks volumes about Rossi's greatness.

Few like stoner never cares anything but takes the bike to limits for race victor, collect a few wins along with crashes and DNF'S. Crashes might even force you to sit out of races and its down to luck to decide whether they'll race or not the next weekend.

Being fastest is just one dimension of racing and a complete racing has lot more in it, Rossi is more complete than anyother rider in current era. there seems to exist a more perfect balance between speed and safety with Rossi which no one else has,, he knows when to attack and when to play down.
