MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Certain posters find it very difficult to find any positives with Rossi's performances. Here is some help. Rossi set a lap time on lap 2 that Marc couldn't better for 13 laps...... and Jorge never did match it. So no, Rossi is not slower now because of his advancing years. It is obvious from the lap by lap times that Rossi had cooked his tyres by lap 7, he dropped half a second a lap. So no, Rossi unable to fight for the whole race is not down to his age, or being over cautious. Jorge started from 3rd and finished 2nd. Rossi started from 6th and finished 3rd.

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Brian......I don't think that I showed that age is his problem at all. Check the lap by lap times and you'll see that he did not "slowly fall off", He dropped half a second from lap 8 onward. Prior to that he was quicker than Jorge and Marc who had a clear track. After the first corner, Jorge in the lead Rossi 5th. Come the finish Jorge lost a place while Rossi gained two. Despite his cooked tyre and despite his old age he did OK if you are honest. I'm peed off that Rossi caught and passed Dovi but that doesn't make me blind to the fact that he had a good ride.
