MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Bradl cost me a podium


“Bradl arrived too deep in braking and he pushed me out of the track and I lost two seconds on that lap and so I lose the podium” - Valentino Rossi.

I know the result isn't much to cheer about but there are some positives from the race.

1. Rossi was a tenth slower than the repsols and 0.3 quicker than his team mate.
2. As of lap 14 all of his lap times (bar 1) were quicker than Lorenzo.
3. It seems he is a lot more competitive than last year and he seems to struggle more with newer tracks so hopefully on the European tracks he'll post more of a threat.

I hope Rossi can continue like this and if he doesn't get caught up with the the other riders at the start then he can definitely post more of a threat to the top three.

Everyone's going on about Rossi giving Lorenzo a better run for his money this year...but you're all forgetting Lorenzo's struggling with the bike this year and Rossi isn't. If Lorenzo was himself like last year he'd still be infront of Rossi.

Lol fenati was on the trottle?!
fenatis pass was a little iffy, but he easily made the apex.
Bradl got it wrong and was no where near the apex, only just stayed on the track himself!
Still Rossi had made the mistake that let Bradl that close, it is a shame that he lost so much time and so many positions, he would have had a podium

In the end Rossi is right on what he say because even with is mistakes if Bradl dont have that moment with him Rossi was riding hard enaught to give Pedrosa a fight, but like he also say first of all the mistakes he did on the inical laps wwas the real probleme, i guess is also because of the layout of this track that have corners where we wach 3 riders together and they are until the last momente decding who will be the firt to corner on the inside line.. I dont blame Bradl to much because that corner where they where braking was one Hot spot to Run wide most of the riders where failing the braking there sht happens... Aim very happy that Rossi is right there little by little we gona have a good year aim shure, is him 3 in the Champ, to beat marquez is impossible only if marquez had one injure but if he can fight with Pedrosa and Lorenzo will be enaught for Yamaha give him a new contract

Yes but last year the bike did not suit rossi and it did lorenzo so you cant really use that argument ,maybe jorge is a little faster now but rossi is 35 and jorge is in his prime so i think its great the old guy is still giving the young ones a run for there money.
