rtp - Bautista set the 3rd fastest lap of the race so he wasnt exactly slow today. Who would gave thought when Cal and Alvaro were setting fastest laps that Rossi would finish ahead of them? Made the best of a very bad weekend.

@podster & hoppy
rossi is mr. show, can't you just enjoy the show? do you prefer he is 4 second behind lorenzo with lonely boring show? if yes you should watch time trial, you can rewind 2011 season.

4 laps to go.. Only Marquez and Rossi on 39 sec.

So It raises questions:

Seems Rossi setup the bike overnight :) (due the bad times he achieve... )

How much is Yamaha paying him to NOT fight with Lorenzo?

You could call him Spies in a derogitory way except rossi has 1x1, 1x2, 2x3 and is 4th in WC only 23 points behind the current WC with 8 races left.

If only spies achieved last year, what rossi has already achieved this year?

Rabcati - We are talking about satellite bikes? Gresini, LCR... so inferior to Rossi's M1.. So are you saying that Bautista and Bradl while both good riders are better than Rossi? The guy who is ridding the same bike, was 14 seconds up the road with a ****y collarbone and a set of tyres that were going off.. For me we are seeing one of the greats tarnish his legacy... As he showed with his time at Ducati he has lived a privileged life the best bikes, Honda and Yamaha, the best tyres, made overnight by Michelin to cover the setup problems of the bike..... To me he should be fighting with Marquez, Lorenzo, Pedrosa. Two have bung shoulders and are not 100%, and one is a first year rookie... As its been said in this post... " forgive me for not pissing my self with excitment watching Rossi battle for 4th with satellite riders"

I think Rossi was relieved to pull a 4th place finish out of the bag. After it was looking like he'd be in a race for 8th after struggling to find a setup all weekend. He dug deep and fought as hard for that finish as we've seen battle for race wins in the past. He still has plenty of fight left in him, For an old dude!

I guess that's not enough to please the Brit fans who watched their guy get taught a lesson in racecraft by #46 at the end of that race.

I wonder... What's Crutchlow's excuse going to be this week?

Wtf dude.. For the bad mouths i wach about Rossi on the past 2 years i must say you guys have to suck really hard, Rossi just jump on the Yamaha and was better then on the Ducati, Rossi allready leave Ducati at 33 secunds gap like was at Assen.. is race at qatar was other amyzing recovery, Rossi is in 4 place on the standings 23 points of Lorenzo WC in 2012 leading Yamaha, if at this gap you retire the points that Rossi lost at Mugello thankx to Bautista Rossi would be even Closer to Lorenzo.. Rossi is not making a brilliant Year yes but is right there improving little by little.. Even if Rossi finish the year in front of Lorenzo you guys will not be happy with him so Piss off
