Makes you laugh everyone slating Rossi saying that he was this amount of time of Marquez, Et al, and that others fell of the pace insinuating that they came back to him, Rather than say he looked after his tyres better which was the real reason why he CAUGHT the 3 in front! Did anyone watch the moto2 race and say the same about Tito Rabat? Na thought not. I personally watched it and applauded Tito for having the brains to conserve his tyres. Don't think you could say the same about Lorenzo.

The only reason Rossi was slower than Jorge in the last few laps was because he was caught up in his battle to wrestle 4th place from the two in front and their slow pace. What was Jorge's reason for falling so far behind MM and DP?

So Rossi finishes fourth, 14 seconds behind his team mate on the exact same machine, other than set up, Rossi has lost his edge, maybe its about time he joined the four wheel brigade, next season there will be more youngsters in Moto GP and reputations will count for nothing with these kids,bow out at the top Valentino.

@jamesy. They're just trolls. Don't take the bait! people who don't like rossi, but do like racing, will give him respect for today. People who don't, just want a response.

Marquez, at the moment, the only alien. He looked like he was playing with them.
I noticed that the Hondas did their overtaking on the straights.
Shame for Cal, Alvaro got in his way on the last lap.

A question for the tinfoil hat wearers.....am I right in thinking that Bridgestone flew in some specials for Rossi?

@ Camathias, do you think that all those who finished behind Rossi should retire too?
Jorge led the race and dropped to 3rd, Rossi overtook riders to get from 9th to 4th. Who had the best race is, I suppose, debatable.

The fact is that Cal fought like an angry rat the whole race. Alvaro rode his heart out, soundly beating the other sat Honda Bradl on the way. Rossi, for whatever reason, won the last lap battle. He usually does.
