I dunno, perhaps Rossi's accident a few years ago, having his inside out gave him a different perspective about his mortality, but I have to think Rossi's lack of speed comes down to how hes using the bike (Jorge's bike) vs how Jorge/Cal are working the bike. Cal can talk up and down about how he rides like Rossi, but I seriously doubt Cal's philosophy is anyware near Rossi's. Dovi also famous for braking like Rossi was slower than Cal but Dovi still managed to better Cal last year, Rossi just needs to keep the faith, and pilot smart, and just bide his time. I have to think he would be much faster on a 2010 bike w/ 1000cc. And like Rossi said, the tires are not the same as they used to be, and Jorge's bike w./ Jorge are able to get the best edge grip from the tires, unfortunately edge grip can wear out, and its at that point where Jorge can potentially lose out big.
