The truly amazing thing is that he's able to contend for podiums with the young prodigy, as well as the the other 2 Spanish aliens, after all these years. Sure, others have won races at later stages of their careers, but Vale has been a podium contender and race winner for almost 17 years running (bar Ducati). I also did some research and discovered that Ago had won some of his races by lapping riders sometimes more than once during those races!! It seems that his machinery's performance potential was miles above the others back then. No disrespect to him, but Vale, as well as all the current crop, have to deal with machines that are not exactly equal in terms of performance, but much closer than they were back in the 60's. Vale IS the greatest IMHO & if Marc wants to usurp him, he's got a very long stretch of track ahead of him. I'll def enjoy watching him go for it! Kinda wish Casey was still here........

Rossi has much work do to, while he's been a little more competitive he needs to improve to get on even terms with Marquez, Pedrosa and Lorenzo. I agree that 46 points is probably too high to overcome but he does have a chance to pull back some points if he can get on the podium constantly. If he can start challenging for wins on a regular basis then the season will be a success for him eventhough he's met the goals he set i.e. podiums and a win.

But to add on to my above comment Rossi has a chance hopefully with some renewed confidence to improve his results. It will be interesting to see Pedrosa and Lorenzo as they've had time to heal partially from their injuries as they'll be anxious reduce Marquez's lead.

I'm certain that with all the tight, slow corners and 1st/2nd gear accel zones this will be a Honda dominated weekend. rossi was the only Yamaha in the top 5 at LS. Have you'all noticed the vast difference in lines the M1 riders are taking VS the RC213V guys? It's always a little diff but lately its so different even my young daughters notice it. Honda takes much tighter lines, less time on the edge of the tire. Dani has always been good at standing the bike up and firing it out of corners. I still think for whatever reason the RCV is easier to ride this way... As of right now.

We can also considerer that Rossi is with 46 points beahind due to one mistake like it was Lemans and Mugello with that Noob Bautista=/.. if we think well even beeing a bit slow on pace at some tracks Rossi has been doing very well for one rider that many people whanted to put out of Motogp because of Ducati.. Now that he find a better setup we can even wach Rossi more stronger thats way i can t wait for the 2 round of Motogp will be amyzing to wach i hope everytingh runs well for all riders because i bealive we will wach the hardes t fights with some very hard
