@yachtJohn Thanks for saying everything I planned to say, mate. You saved me a lot of typing. I haven't seen such natural and spontaneous behavior from pro racers in a long time. Maybe these 3 could hold classes for the guys in F1, who could use a bit of spontaneity (Kimi excepted).

@ Nikeros.. re- yachtJohn

Exactly !
I can't attend races,so my only perspective is from T.V. and the internet ( no pay sites,unfortunately) and I've always thought, apart from a few 'nasty' rivalries- that V.R. has been respectful of his co-riders, in particular the front runners. The clear comradrerie and respect amongst these guys is CLEAR. It is SO much more entertaining to see racers enjoying a laugh, yet respecting each other's talent. MM is proving to be MORE than I thought he would ( barge master- a la A.B) ! I'm stoked for C.C's podiums, and his time will come !
My most vivid memories of Rossi are him stalking the rider in front of him, 'sussing' him out and passing in a dominating fashion- often to take first place on the last or penultimate lap. MM seems to talk about doing this- 'learning by following', but I'm beginning to think he just needs a lap, maybe just a few corners, to do what Rossi did ! ( and I hope will do AGAIN, I'm a huge VR fan ) Good luck to all 3 !!

Good point Codger! Lorenzo, Stoner and Pedrosa always look so stoic. I could picture Rossi, MM and Crutchlow all sitting at a pub having a beer after spanking each other around on the track. The other 3, not so much.

Lorenzo has lightened up a lot this year... I'm actually starting to like him! I think spending time with Cal has helped him see he doesn't need to be so serious all the time.

Pedrosa is still a miserable git!

Well said. Every time I look at this picture I can't help but smile. Truly a breath of fresh air to MotoGP this MM.
The 3 others sitting around having a beer? One of them would whinge about the temperature of the ale. Guess which one? lol.

Go Rossi.
