@ THE FAN
Good point! I think all of the "shattered confidence" comments are rubbish. Sure, his confidence was muffled on the Ducati, but when Rossi felt good (generally in wet conditions when the bike felt better, and his dry run as well) on the GP he rode the pants off of it. He's going to feel just fine on the Yamaha. I think testing will allow him enough time to adjust to a more refined machine again. I expect it to take a few races for Rossi to get back into the groove, but then again...he could shock me in Qatar. We'll just have to see! I don't doubt for a minute that he's going to be competitive in 2013.
