Rossi Haters

Where are all the Rossi haters? All the talk early on seems to have been silenced. Come on out you cowards now and restate your beliefs.

All the talk about him being done seem to be overstated. I have been watching all the racing this year and feel he is as good as any. Ok Mark is over the top and seems impossible to beat, however Rossi has been giving a good fight all year and is ahead of his teammate by some margin. It also appears that Honda is the top dog in the equipment area.

His ride today was stellar coming from pit lane to 5th, maintaining his share of 2nd for the championship. I think he also set fastest lap of the race. Noted than Mark never needed to push too hard given how things played out.

Speaking of that, did anyone notice his bike change. I would guess a second faster than anyone else. Every one else pictured dismounted and remounted while Mark jumped from one horse to the other.

As long as he's kicking Lorenzo's arse I'm happy.

Do you think Lorenzo has already checked out?

Rumors have him going to Honda next year.

The points speak for themselves, Rossi is no where near done, he has adapted to the new style of riding once again, and will be the one most likely to get a win this year. Un fortunate tyre choice this week but pit lane to top 5 is impressive. 35 is NOT old he is the modern day Agostini.

Always Rumors in racing so hard to tell. I think Jorge is having a lot of bad luck and also maybe disillusioned at this point.

Sounds like Mark will stay and not sure if getting rid of Pedrosa is not going to gain anything for Honda IMO and I doubt Jorge is as affordable. Maybe a good move for Jorge but I wonder why Honda would want to make the change?

Pedrosa has had his chance. Honda has been patient enough for him.

Marquez is locked in already. He just signed an extension. No way he's going anywhere for a long time.

Yes, Lorenzo has officially checked out...

A HRC ride is probably wasted on both JLo and Pedrosa next year. Espargaro is doing the most with the absolute least, I say give him a big-boy ride.

I think Lorenzo has still got it. He just needs to find himself. I think it would be terrible for the sport if he pulled a Stoner and bowed out at the end of the year.

Rossi is technically riding JLO's bike and doing it better than him. Anyone noticed that ducati got a 2nd place ?? The duc is awesome in wet conditions - pretty much the only way it will get a podium finish.

Actually no. This year Yamaha has started to develop Rossi's bike following his input, as opposed to last year where he had to ride Jorges spec bike and just make do with his own setup. I think this is why he's doing so much better this year. Jorge has a very different style with his 250cc high corner speed and Im sure most others would struggle to be competitive with his bike.

You clearly didn't see Marquez change bikes. He didn't even touch the ground! And he didn't nearly kill his pit crew member in the process like Vale did!
