Grendlehop, 5 Aliens if Spies can keep this up? There are only 3 Aliens at the moment, and was all last year. Rossi is no Alien. He lost that status with his shocking performances in 2011. He has to earn the right to use that status again. And titles in the past eleventy-severn years doesnt make him an Alien.

i agree man... so many idiots on here at the moment predicting the seasom after a few days testing etc. Well Rossi has near enough the same time as stoners quickest yesterday... the honda has been ready for almost a year and had far more testing than Ducatis 2 days... if i was to be so judgmental and think the way these people do then we could say we've built a bike in a few months..tested it a couple of days an now we're only a day behind the honda. But i wouldnt say this. Alot of work left to do...Rossi has already earmarked a few changes to be made when they leave tday. 1 thing for certain though... when Rossi is comfortable with his Bikes...they become part of him an he nails it in Races.
