MotoGP » Czech MotoGP, Brno - Free Practice (1)


@ Hoggy - None of it means too much at this stage. However, something I've noticed about Rossi , even in the Duc days, on race day, he can keep pace with people who were within 0.5 of him in qualifying. Its something I always keep an eye on, and it seems to work regularly enough for it being a "finger in the air" type of notion for the race ahead. People who qualify more than 0.5 ahead of him, disappear. (Cal being the exception that proves the rule - He's an awesome qualifier!!)

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi enjoys 'fun' charge, rues slow start


@shanefireblade - I kind of agree, although I still think he needs a little more time to get his eye in more. The Ducati spell definitely took it's toll and he is older now, so it takes a little more time to adjust. The battle to fourth still proves he's got it though as, yes, it was well behind the leading pack, but it was no mean feat considering the poor qualifying (another topic for improvement). But, yes, fourth is not worth a ticker tape parade. He showed in Assen what he's capable of. To prove that wasn't a fluke, I agree he needs more consistency. Brno will be a very good measure of his potential because its a good track for him. Let's see next week

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi enjoys 'fun' charge, rues slow start


Even if Rossi had have qualified fourth, he would have still been pretty happy with a fourth place finish in my opinion. Its pretty much his least favorite track. Therefore, to finish fourth from 9th was a great come back and fantastic damage limitation. Of course, I want him to be challenging for the win, and qualifying on front row, but I wasn't expecting anything special on this particular circuit. Therefore, I'm really happy with that result. I'm expecting him to be closer in Brno though. It was a great fight for the last few laps. Well done to all 3 for keeping everything upright. I had a horrible feeling Alvo was going to bowl them all out. Fair play to him. Lessons learned I think,.
