Sepang MotoGP: Valentino Rossi aiming to bounce back in Malaysia

Valentino Rossi is aiming to bounce back from two disastrous flyaway races in Sepang this weekend to strengthen his bid to finish fifth in the overall MotoGP world championship standings. Rossi crashed on the first lap of the Japanese Grand Prix and then tumbled out of fifth during last weekend’s Australian round at the Phillip Island circuit. The 32-year-old has now slipped...

"will be interesting to see the comparisons with both the early ducati test"

I don't think they'll be able to draw any conclusions.  First, the weather forecast is looking pretty nasty.

Even if they get some dry time, there'll be questions of how much the shoulder injury was affecting the early test, how much is the finger injury affecting this test not to mention his loss of confidence in the front.

Looking back to the early races this year, Rossi was having mid-race battles with Dovi and Jorge.  Whatever their performance relative to the earlier Sepang test, Ducati's competitiveness has gone backwards during the season while Suzuki has made gains.

Still, with rain predicted, this could be Rossi's best chance of a win all year.

Or just

................an observation? Rossi has moaned all season. Not quite the quick fix that he and Jerry thought therefore 'excuses' every round from the start of the season. I can understand your frustration but nothing lasts forever bud.

P.S. Have you ever given Stoner credit for his results on the Duke...................thought not.

Birt's got the big spoon out

the 'bounce back' line was far from inadvertent, and we got (as Hedgy said) the predictable answer straight off the bat.

Tetsuo describes it well. Rossi has lead Ducati's regression 2011. Apparently Burgess has said he's not getting the right kind of feedback from Rossi. This is nothing more than scurrilous rumour I might add, but smacks of serious disaffection at multiple levels within the Ducati organisation.

I for one am surprised the papally blessed all Italian marriage has stumbled on this far. It's chances of making it to this point 2012 are slim to fack all.
