Modest expectations for Valentino Rossi in Australia

Valentino Rossi has only modest expectations heading into this weekend’s Phillip Island MotoGP clash in Australia. The Italian doubts he will be a podium challenger on Sunday at the spectacular coastal track and he has completely written off any chance of winning a fifth Australian Grand Prix in the last six for Ducati. Home favourite Casey Stoner never lost a Phillip Island...

Oh well....

He will not be disappointed then.Rossi need not worry with only 2 races left on the Ducati.
It is Spies and Dovi that should be doing the worrying although my guess is Iannone will be top Ducati rider next season but even he will probably struggle most of the time unless there are vast improvements.
This past 2 years must have been so frustrating for Rossi and his team.
At least next year they will have a bike which can be set up far quicker and more easily so it will just be down to whether he has the pace to beat Dani and Jorge so looks like podium finishes most races whatever happens.

Do you think Lin Jarvis will let #2 rider Rossi fight with teacher's pet Jorge for race wins or do you think he'll get the Spies treatment? It could be another two years of pain for Rossi fans if this season is anything to go by. If Rossi does look like beating Jorge in a race, Jorge only has to wave his hand and race direction will stop the race for him. lol

Iannone top Duke 2013?

ha, ha. He rides exactly like Rossi  - static and not dynamic in his movements - these are machines that need dominating. Crazy Joe's got a bit of improving / adapting to do to MotoGP next year to justify the GP13.

That said without counting my chickens before they spoil the broth CJ's 2013 Ducati competition looks as weak as it's been in the last two years - unless Spies gets his head sorted out, bad luck was only half his problem this year.

To my mind Ducati missed a trick in not signing Redding.

thought u might disagree

Time will tell though.....yes Redding may have been a better choice but I think he will still be in one bit at the end of next season where as on the Ducati I reckon may have done some serious flying!

All teams have a pecking order.

Whether they care to admit it is another thing entirely. Obviously, we are supposed to think that the Yamaha boys will be free to fight each other for victories but Jarvis has already said there won't be any more Motegi-style dogfights. I think Rossi accepts playing second fiddle to Jorge is better than trying to ride the bike that blew his stats apart. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ On a side note, It would be funny if Rossi quit now (for whatever reason) before rejoining Yamaha leaving the door open for Cal. Dovi would go apesh!t. Please let this happen. LMAO!!!

Rossi     quit now     in your dreams chump.

Note to all Rossi fans    we should all now refer to Stoner as ''Turn 3''   so    at Phillip Island on Sunday will  ''Turn 3'' be able to beat Pedro and Loro   Or will he crash at  ''Casey Stoner''
