@UserM4 "A lot of trash talkers on here about Rossi. Let's be real. How many times has Rossi finished worse than his qualifying position? That's right. It's very rare. You know why? Because when the pressure is on, he's cool, calm, and collected." Yeah, incredible racer. You can't be a motorsport fan and not be in awe of Rossi's ability to race his machine well. Even on the Duke he raced well, IMO. Regularly out-performing your qualifying position is a real good indicator of the ability to race, and the ability to race is a special quality that not all have. Compare Vettel and Webber in that regard then look at their championship results over the past 3-4 years. That being said, Lorenzo and Stoner are also brilliant racers. To their advantage though, they also regularly qualify at the very front.
