MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium


lux:
titfortat: This race confirmed to me more than any that he just is too old now, the young guys are just too fast for him and he will never compete for wins again.
This post won't be popular, and maybe he might fight for a win again, but still it's overall true. He's not too old to be competitive, but he's missing those 2-3 tenths per lap that would make him a constant win contender. In this case it was T4, but it's always those few tenths missing that would allow him to bring the fight to MM. It's not a critique, it's actually amazing Vale is still there and still so hungry after all this time. As often said, a pure legend.
It is also a fact that the young learn faster, they'll always be one step ahead now, it is a shame, Rossi was amazing in his day, but lets be honest, he his old, he cannot ever compete again.
