Estoril MotoGP Reaction: Valentino Rossi reflects on disappointing third

Valentino Rossi put a brave face on in Estoril this afternoon after his barren run in MotoGP was extended to seven races. The Italian led from the second lap and looked on course to win for the first time since his last success in Estoril last year as he fought off the relentless challenge from Fiat Yamaha team-mate Jorge Lorenzo and...

well...

that's good I can't wait to see this progres...anyway Lorenzo is in the learning stages too. For this moment it's Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo winning each race so next goes to Rossi. This four riders have a chance to be a champion in '08 and the best of the rest probably be Tech3 or JIR Scot

Rossi Should Be Worried

Just too say from the outset that i am a huge fan of Vale, what he's done for the sport and all the usual cliche that goes with him, he is second too none. The man is a legend... However, he's gotta be hurting and worried. His new rookie team mate who, lets face it is pretty special is currently riding rings round him, and it seems clear as day that once again he has wound up on the wrong tyre brand. Michelin always said they were on the way back, and they have stuck true too their word. Rossi is bound to be totally f**ked off with the fact that he's messed that tyre move rite up and is at the minute struggling to get a result. Lets hope that Rossi doesnt start moaning again about tyres becos all dignity would be lost. He needs to put his head down grind out every lap of every session at every race too get him back on terms...If any1 can make it work it will be Rossi, but with a mega on-form rookie team mate who is on the same bike but with the "better" tyres and the vast knowledge and data of not only his tyres workings but also the workings of the same tyre on the same machine that is currently regarded as best of the rest behind the top factory machines... Rossi has got too be worried cos this is very quickly looking set too be another year without a crown for the king...

He should have put a little more faith in Michelin. Maybe the last couple of tracks have suited the more, and Bridgestone will have a few strong tracks, but at the moment i cant help but think he regrets his decision to ditch Michelin. He's not going to admit that jof course. There's plenty of time and plenty of tracks left, but at the moment it looks to have backfired. China is a "Bridgestone track" though, right?

Not backfired yet!

I dont think Rossi's decisions is quite the wrong one just yet... I do think Michelin has made a huge effort to come back, but I will reserve my personal judgement until a few rounds from now. Keep in mind - Yamaha has no previous (recent) data on any of their bikes with the Bridgestones.

it`s the same with everybody saying racing was better years ago......well i`ve just watched a review of the 1991 500gp season on video and by the looks of it apart from a couple of races it was just as boring then as now

Bridgestone v Mitchelin

He is still happier than miserable Danni and more gracious in defeat than moody mongrel Stoner. He is the GOAT !!!

Tyres

I'd say Rossi'll be pretty pissed off about his tyre choice. Mitchelin have been winning GP's for ages and it's not really a supprise that they've got their finger out after last years joke. If anyone can make them work it's the old GOAT. Good to see Stoner (the most boring bloke/boy ever) chucking the toy's out. Simon, watch the 93GP review. Kevin keeps thing interesting

Simon & YZ man

Mate the only eyar worth watching is the 89 season. Lawson, Eianey, Schwantz and Gardner all go at. Toos in a young doohan in his first year who, by the last race, was coming to terms with the 500. Check out his powersliding in the last race. And its spelt Michelin. No t.
