I guess Rossi has to accept that stoner Is the fastest Rider with the Ducati what did Rossi Say about Stoner (I don't believe his hand is so Bad or he would be 1 to 1.5 Seconds Faster than me and I don't believe that) Well Rossi Your words and what was he 1.2 seconds faster looks like Stoner did have a sore hand a?? and was quite courageous to test in Sepang with it ........Looks like this will be a very interesting year :)
