In all honesty,i think some are being overly harsh on Rossi here.Ok he had a bit of a poor weekend in Texas complicated by brake issues,but look what happened in Qatar.Started 7th,finished 2nd.He had the race pace there.We pretty much knew Texas belonged to Honda before the lights went out. Rossis trouble at the moment is his qualifying.Under the old system,riders had the luxury of popping in and out of the pits to tinker with this and that.That luxury has now gone.Bikes have to be spot on for qualifying now as the time allowed is so short.Any error in set up and you are in big trouble.This seems to have happened to him here.He cant afford to be starting from row3 every race.It simply leaves him with too much work to do.Lets see what happens in Jerez.
