Rossi is Best of the Rest..nothing to be ashamed of..the younger generation are strong n super talented and for a #2 M1 factory rider,he's way better than what Spies was anyways or Edwards or whoever else..problem is the high expectations but he's okay...his the greatest for sure!

Its hard to understand Rossi's problems...In previous races he was slower on the first half of races and faster in the later half....

Today was just the opposite....I was expecting that he would really close the gap to the front guys and fight with them for a podium...

But he really struggled on corner entry...If you look closely while MM was just behind him catching up quickly you would see that on corner entry Vale's bike was still straight while MM's bike was already on the lean angle and that too from behind...I hoped Vale would recover but he never did...
By the way congrats to amazing Jorge...masterclass..

Thats ok Rossi.. The only solution is keep worcking!! Tomorow more stuff to test, they have to improve the braking, next track is Aragon is a tuff track for any rider but the real probleme there is that braking feel is extremly importante.. 4sure is one place for Honda win because they are very strong in engine and braking.. I hope they find better solutions tomorow because it will be very importante for Yamaha.. The year is not over yet... Go Rossi

Its a very different championship when their are others in the field who are on comparable equipment. You cant have the best tyres made overnight and flown in just for you anymore.. 15 seconds behind your team mate... the excuse book must be getting to the end surely.

IMHO Rossi brakes deeper than anyone else not later. To do that you need a from tyre with a strong carcass. The one that was taken away by Bridgestone as a knee jerk reaction to of a string of cold races in Europe. Stoner objected the most at the time and was labelled a 'moaner' as always. Rossi cannot ride his to trademark strengths, and so another top rider is hamstrung by the one tyre fits all rule.

Rossi Rossi Rossi, you must win a race before season ends, you r on the same bike as Jorge and he's kicking your ass, you r hurting your legacy by getting beat by him every weekend, either start fighting for wins or retire.

I understand why the trolls and haters ridicule Rossi for finishing fourth. That's because they know and expect nothing than a win from Rossi every time he races. They know he can do more than what he is achieving now. They know he is a nine time world champion and to expect less is an insult for him. Now trolls and haters, I feel sorry for you. I really am. Dont worry, when Rossi wins you will be happy again. I guarantee you, he will win again. So stay calm and righly so, you should be angry at him for finishing fourth because you know he could do better.

Vale can do the lap time but h ether push hat hard the whole race, makes mistakes or settles for position. He doesn't seem to have the ability to run flat out over race distance and probably never had to during most of his career.

Yamaha needs him to push start to finish and get in the mix with the Honda's. Bringing the bike home in a comfy position is worthless because the constructors title is all but out of reach. The need to focus on keeping the rider championship and if Rossi won't push all race he is of little value to them the rest o the season.
