MotoGP » Rossi returns to scene of winning joy


It took more than one lap Husky, but I see your point. However, Rossi was matching MM's pace all race long, it's just that when MM really needed to he could go suddenly 2 or 3 tenths faster for a lap. Rossi has to lead early to have a chance at winning, because right now everyone (top 4) are so close in laptimes that without being right up early and getting in the slipstream it's incredibly hard to gain time... unless you're MM.

MotoGP » Colin Edwards: 'Faith and feel'


shamarone: re: "I wont be popular for this but Edwards did f@$ckall on the bike that Rossi dominated on" no, Yamaha internal strategy is "Rule of 2". one rider to embody power, the other to crave it. Ross was (and ironically still is) top o' the food chain. re: "one hit wonder." two hit wonder on the world stage. don't short 'em.
This is completely wrong. Yamaha never favored riders, but when you have possibly the greatest motorcycle racer in the history of the sport on your team, you'll be listening to him more in terms of feedback. I can't believe anyone would sincerely think Yamaha would purposely make one bike slower? At the end of the day it's mostly down to the rider and his personal mechanics. Rossi had a ****ty bike in 06 and 07 and still managed to win races and almost the championship. As much as I love Colin, he proved the yamaha was a **** bike and it wasn't just the tires (dunlop) on the tech3 that made it so slow in these seasons. If Yamah

MotoGP » We're closer to beating Marquez, says Rossi


The problem is Rossi can match MM's pace, but if MM pulls any sort of advantage, he can't catch back up to MM and always just maintains the gap. At the end of the race when Pedro passed MM, Rossi was still doing the same lap times as MM. And in the lap that Rossi was behind MM but in front of Pedro it was clear he could stick to the wheels of Marquez and could win based on hard overtaking manoeuvres. Again the problem is that it feels like Rossi is able to quickly get up to speed, but if he drops off even just a bit on one lap it's game over, whereas Marquez can pull a blinder out of the bag to catch up if something happens to him (like outbraking himself) . It's funny because in the past Rossi's style was the polar opposite - he would often fall way back and then ride the wheels off his bike to gain positions back. I think this is what made him a fan favorite.
