MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow savours first MotoGP front row


Absolutely brillant Cal! Now, he needs to put it together in the race. I said last year that Cal proven he belong in GPs based off his speed in QP. Now he has to work out his race pace and learn to adjust to the changing conditions of the tires and the bike as it gets lighter burning off fuel. He was pushing too hard when he shouldn't have a couple of times last year and he missed some opportunites to score good finishes. Jerez comes to mind. Cal's best chances of scoring brilliant finishes will be at the first part of the season before the factory bikes move on in development.

MotoGP » Dark night for 'worse' Rossi


This is bad. Really bad. Rossi either isn't trying or has lost it completely. I hope this session takes the yellow rosed tinted glasses off some and they see what the times have been saying all week - Rossi is SLOW. And you can't blame the bike when all other Ducatis are in front on him. But it's not just that he is the last Ducati but he is the last manufacturer bike. LAST. That's unacceptable. I've said this Ducati/Rossi thing wasn't going to end pretty. It this keeps up he won't finish the season. He'll either retire from GPs or get sacked. This can't go on.

MotoGP » Barbera top Ducati, Rossi aims for second row


lol @ dmelb I thought about that today as well. Another Rossi fanboy myth busted. Funny how when Stoner won the title in 2007 all the Rossi fanboys said it was because of a top speed advantage. But now that Rossi is on the fastet bike surely their Hero is P1 and blowing everyone into the weeds right? lol Just like Rossi (not the engineers) is a development god and how he's gonna turn Ducati around. How has that been working out? Busted myth.

MotoGP » Barbera top Ducati, Rossi aims for second row


@Ausrossi From my understanding Spies packed up early because their was a electrical problem with his 2nd bike that could not be fixed before the end of the session. It was not because of injury. And from what I saw from Jerez and quickly looking at the times today I would say Rossi is beyond 16 seconds at race end. Last year here the soft was about 1 sec a lap better in QP compared to the hard. It looks to be that way this year as well. Rossi says he is consistant on the hard but for how many laps? He's been wearing tires good after about 10 to 12 laps. So a 22 lap race were he is already 1 second off the leaders plus a slowing pace due to tires could very well been well off 16 seconds. But maybe not so we will see.
