To put things in perspective.......Rossi had a poor Qually, his team (JB) found something in warm up as usual. They changed something and it worked, unfortunately they decided to increase what they found and it turned out that it made the bike worse. So Rossi was on a poor handling bike which was later excacerbated by a chip coming off of his front disk. As to the age issue the guy is older but there is nothing wrong with his level of fitness. In both races so far he has set his fastest laps late in the race. Everyone else has done it in the first 3 or 4 laps. It seems that Rossi and his team are still learning to adapt the bike, and at the moment are behind Jorge's team in this..
