Rossi was amazing at Laguna 2008...stoner was dominant with 2 victories before laguna race...but still rossi's done it..

now the situation remains the same, but with different racers, Marquez and carl was so fast, can rossi repeat his best moment at Laguna 2008?

let's just wait and see...i hope he can....

Rossi you've already won 9 titles, so pls give this year to Dani :p

Races are never a forgone conclusion.
If Stoner was 'supposed to win' then it was because that's how you used your reasoning and opinion to make that conclusion even before the race was run.
Not only did you underestimate your own opinion of Stoner but you underestimated the unpredictability of motorsport.
Valentino beat a ducati rider into second place, hardly a great moment in motoGP given the reputation of both the M1 and the Desmosedici and their history in the sport is it?

BurroMiapanino - he also beat the 3rd place finisher by a whopping 26 seconds. A gap that wasn't matched again for another 41 races! Shows you how fast they ran that day. Id say that was an achievement.

Stoner was "supposed" to win because he was so fast in both practise and qualifying! His speed meant he would be able to tear off into the sunset the way he had done in the past! Valentino himself said in a jokey way that he would need a 15second start to stand any chance!! Valentino gave Stoner the shock of his life!!

rossi's move on Stoner was not only illegal... as ...
"it was just rossi's mistake" Some people hate that move
just because they thought it was "easy move",
they thought Rossi got that advantage to win the race!

then state that SAVE was illegal .......
However, i hv noted fans or not fans you all remember that moved.

Rossi didn't take any advantage from the mistake at the corkscrew therefore it wasn't illegal. If he had gone on to win the race after that overtake he would have been penalized, instead he won the race by passing Stoner clean as can be and by the the fact that Stoner made a schoolboy mistake and dropped it in the gravel.
