Valentino Rossi shines on factory Yamaha return

Valentino Rossi made a brilliant return to Yamaha’s factory MotoGP squad in Malaysia today, the nine-times world champion ending the first day of 2013 pre-season testing with the fourth quickest time. Rossi showed a disastrous two-year spell with Ducati has not blunted his confidence or skills and the 33-year-old topped the timesheets for a period in the early part of the...

I know exactly why you introduced the word rookie. There was no need to remind anyone that marquez is a was a poorly disguised attemp to belittle rossi's extremely competitive performance. A better guage would be to look at times around noon when rossi set his time...oh wait he was in first place with that lap! That was just to throw down a marker, get everyone-a-thinkin', and then spend the rest of the day trying new stuff to get more settled with the yam again. Also marquez trying to impress meant that dani and jorge had to put him in his place. Rossi is not going to get involved in that pissing least for now.

At first I was really disappointed rossi was 0.4 behind, but then, as 1986etc already noticed, I checked the full analysis of the lap times and rossi put his time in at lap 30/56, whereas the first 3 did it in the very last 2 laps. It does seem rossi just set the record straight and then from then on focused on settings, he didn't change tyre from lap 30 onwards. The first three, by looking at the time sheet, it seems came back in, put new tyre and went out again just to set a blistering fast lap. I feel a bit of relief, hopefully the cat is playing with the mouse

Wonder if there is any truth......

to the rumour that Rossi had a qualifier on when he set his time?

Dash for cash..

I like Marquez' smile, even if it does remind me of The Joker out of Batman.

Could be laughing on the other side of his face, if & when Rossi stops working on a race set-up and can be arsed to get involved with the pissing contest into which our three less experienced aliens got drawn to top the sheets.

The ghost of a certain absent retiree still haunts some of the weaker, more impressionable minds it seems.

the gap will be closer to a second by the end of testing, the princeofrepsol has already broken the king of yellow wank stains and this on one of rossi's best tracks. Rossi's great sepang record no doubt has a lot to do with his pre GP routine of a few days in Bangkok and Pattaya sampling all the lady boys have to offer, it is rumoured that rossi always tucks before racing in Malaysia in honour of his thai lady friends

nearly fell off my chair laughing at this one!! good show prince of repsol!


As for the Doktor46's long winded comment hes making you Flossi-philes look stupid!! haha! are they all uneducated, full-stop hating, grandmothers basement dwindling yellow mankini wearers like he is??? LOL!


And Saturn392s, last time i checked the laws of mathematics havnt changed either, perhaps you and Doktor46 shouldnt have wagged so many maths/ english classes all those eons ago!

Except that wasn't Bridgestone's Aoki you were quoting at all

was it Wosi - the master mutt of misinformation. Have another tug on yesterdays time sheet and watch the lanky yellow puke with the unsavoury machiavellian personality  slip further from the top. You know he doesn't have the skill factor to compete with the elite.

Buelligan, Dovi and Spies have two years of chaotic directionless Rossi led 'development' to undo. They're not going to right the ship at the first test.

You mean the same as Rossi had from the chaotic directionless Stoner led 'development' to undo.
