Valentino Rossi aims for big progress in Sepang

The start of Valentino Rossi’s second test on board Ducati’s heavily revamped GP12 MotoGP machine proved to be a frustrating affair for the Italian after he finished in a lowly eighth on the opening day leaderboard in Sepang. The 33-year-old was hoping to build on an encouraging GP12 debut in Sepang earlier this month when he finished fifth quickest. But the nine-times...

moonwalking macaroons? Ah now you are talking. Seriousley though, im just sick of the Stoner is better than Rossi, Rossi is better than Stoner shite. The only way to prove that at the present time is to put them on identical bikes, tyres etc and that just isnt going to happen is it?

Its a Rossi thread

The bloke is obviously trying,as are Ducati to adapt/develope a bike to suit him. Currently he's caught up fending off Hector Barbera within the Ducati camp,injured Karel hardly turned a twist grip and injured Nick topped out.  Wing and a prayer for Valentino 2012 is his current status circa 2012. Early days its not.

Give or take a month or so and the lights will go out at the startline in Qatar. Presuming the entire entry list start and finish, where would you picture the Rossi finish ? Ducati/Marlboro and del'Torchio like many on this thread are under no illusions.

That Mugello fracture/rod sits inside his head and has knocked him a yard back on any given Sunday.

Can he turn it around as Michael Doohan did ? Time will tell.

Can't we just all get along?

C'mon now Rossi-bashers. Yall said last year that Valentino cannot sort the bike out, well he fixed the front-end problem thats was buging ducati for multiple years and he's already at a point where he can challenge for the podium. This is just a test. Don't sweat yall pants to much, he proved many bashers multiple times wrong in the past. Its utterly pathetic how many if you act so though in their online 3rd reich but in reality yall just a pathetic soft-plump victims of insecurity. Respect yourself. Respect The Maestro (Rossi). Respect every rider! R.I.P Marco Simoncelli! And lets hope for a awesome season of MotoGp. I rest my case... For now.

It's took Honda 15 years of the same basic design to get where they are I'm incline to give Rossi and ducati more than a handful of days certainly the first half of a rained off day isn't enough in 2008 Yamaha found 1.5 secs on Ducati in half a season so it can be done, but it'll take a mighty effort. Love to see Honda get there's .

save time

The much anticipated season will finish like this -

1st Casey Stoner, 2nd Lorenzo, 3rd Pedrosa, 4th Spies, 5th Rossi, 6th Crutchlow.

There you go, ive just saved you all hours and hours of watching qualifiying and race day which will free up some time for fishing and shit.

Its all too predictable and boring, unfortunately the sport lost the most exciting rider last season so there really isn't much to look forward to.

Right, thats my two bob worth, so im off out to get my new rod before the first race starts.

No he didn't and what makes you so sure of the podium based on what you've seen so far?
