Misano MotoGP: Rossi and Bautista dedicate podium to Marco Simoncelli

Valentino Rossi and Alvaro Bautista dedicated their brilliant podium finishes in yesterday’s Misano MotoGP to late Italian star Marco Simoncelli. Italian Rossi claimed his best ever dry result for Ducati with second position before he dedicated only his third rostrum on board a factory Desmosedici machine to close friend Simoncelli, who lost his life in a horrific crash during last October’s...

Progress

Charlie and Steve made a good point - it'd be the cruellest of luck if Rossi managed to turn the Ducati into a weapon before his switch to Yamaha. Super Sic would indeed be proud!

Great day for Italy

I'm not about to begrudge them that. Rossi did the best race he has in the passed 18 months. He got it right. Focused more on corner exit than corner entry with the Ducati and it paid off handsomely. Even while Bradl hounded him,he utilised  Ducati horsepower to nullify it on corner exit. Good race. I'm also really pleased for Alvaro and Gresini. Nip and tuck but he got the podium.On the negative side,I don't expect much of the same at Aragon. Reasons as cited by bloodbubble and many others.

Yes Rossi basically did get more testing time, but the new chassis and swingarm must of made a difference, because no amount of extra testing on previous bikes would of helped.

What can be said though with this result from Rossi, is that he flies in the face of all the twats that said Rossi has 'lost it, 'past it', 'should retire'. Give him a bike that he likes riding and he is a force to be reckoned with.

Rossi's best ride in 2 years

No doubt about that but testing at Misano obviously helped as did Pedrosa's DNF as did being surrounded by riders he normally races further down the pack. If, and it's a galactic if, we see a podium at Aragon then a corner has finally been turned, pardon the pun. The reality is the time spent testing at Aragon by Honda and Yamaha will swing the balance back in their favour and I'd suggest a 7th will be back on the cards.

I don't think he has lost it or is past it but what happened this weekend would not sway me if I did... he's been battling with Bradl & Bautista all season separated from Bautista (& Bradl) by no more than 2 places in half of the races so far. It's a milestone for Bautista... his 1st podium, but he was only closing in on Rossi (yet again), not an alien.

The day belongs to Bautista & the Gresini Team... such a battle on the last lap with Dovi & so much emotion in taking that 1st MotoGP podium in the memeory of Simoncelli at his circuit.

Yes Rossi has been battling it out with Bradl, Bautista etc, but he has been coming off second best every time. This time he was ahead of them and only  4 seconds behind JL. Whatever slant of negativity you want to put on it, the new bike is an improvement.
