I have always been against Qualifying. To my mind it seems madness to qualify on one tyre and race on a different one. If weather conditions or any other factor comes into it, then you might as well draw straws. (it seldom has much bearing on the race anyway) So the only point in having Qually that I can see is that it gives you lot something to argue about. Oops...I nearly typed 'discuss' then.

Ok, here's a hypothetical for the Rossi fanboys. If Stoner does win tomorrow and Rossi ends up second, let's say that happens, what crap will be trotted out then? I'd just like to know in advance so I can prepare myself is all? He's faking a pretty injury? The Ducati's too fast on the straights? Rossi let him win? Just let me know, cheers.

Let's hope for a good race tomorrow at any rate and I look forward to the streams of idiotic drivel on here afterwards regardless of the result.

A majority of fans won't come out with anything to down grade his achievement if he wins, and visa versa... its not hard to ignore the pointless fans from both sides of the fence... stop trying to start petty arguments.

Now, now, TB777 - there's nowt but the best of fine minds debating here. I am sure that should Stoner prevail, it will only be because Rossi is missing his poor old pooch (which is actually, I think, sad for Valentino because he obviously thought a great deal about the old fella) and because Stoner is a dog-hater.

This is the main difference between Rossi and Stoner. When someone else got pole, Rossi would congratulate him, Stoner would moan and make up excuses or blame the team. I don't think I've ever heard Stoner congratulated someone else who snatched pole from him.

@bitte in bit, not wrong job actually .. Stoner just unlucky and his last tyre were just blowout accidentally, that's what happened ... stoner told me so :blush:

He said he deserved the pole, but sometimes you know.... just inopportune!!

"Read my post numpty, Stoner wanted another soft tyre first, I reckon he wasn't entirely comfortable.. not enough laps"

LOL. Doodaa, here's a quote from that pours cold water all over your idea that Stoner/Ducati 'left it to the last minute' to do a qualifying run.

"The Australian rider was just unable to put down his time before the session was declared closed, without the opportunity to fully use a THIRD qualifying tyre "

As I said, he'd done a couple of quali runs already and just missed his last by a matter of seconds. I do enjoy your little works of fiction though :)
