I never count Rossi out if he is .5sec down in practice before a race. But he has consistantly been 1.8-2.3 secs off the pace all through the tests so far this preseason. It's just logic that he isn't saving 2.5 sec in reserve for Qatar. Qatar is btw a Stoner track not a Ducati track. He went well there on the 990 honda in his rookie season setting pole and leading 20 laps of the race. Ducati needs to leave their tradition and build a normal bike. It doesn't work unless there is a freak kid to ride on it which they no longer have.
