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...

Nipping @ Nostro

I do chuckle here, Nostro posts one of his thinly veiled "I hate Rossi" posts and everyone in yellow bites, if you took time to read his posts you would understand he is totally clueless when it comes to motorcycle racing, no obvious knowledge and is guided only by his hatred for one man.

Don't bite ... pity is best.

As an aside, Marquez is going great guns on one of the best bikes on the grid, but in real terms this is no different to Jorge's first year either, all these sessions are great but the race is where it'll be for Marc..

Indeed Trumpet

The thing Marquez seems to have over Jorge is that he's not afraid to swap some paint now and then.

TrumpetTriple tells the truth.  Your idol has let HRC down,   let MotoGP down,   let himself down and most of all has let his fans down - you are floundering in the muddy waters of his fishing hole.  HE'S GONE  --  ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING --  GET OVER IT.

Marquez is proving he can ride a Moto GP bike very quickly.(already)
Just wonder if he will be able to manage a whole race the way he has managed in practice.
Can't see him being as consistent as the other top runners in every race somehow.
Gravel seems to spring to mind!

Go Dani Go.

Gravel Chewer

Quite right that Marquez may indeed chew the gravel. However, he'll liven things up while he learns MGP. The aliens will be out to stop him, especially his compatriots. Some people have mentioned that Rossi only came 4th in tests and was 1/2 sec. off the pace. All I can say is that when Rossi is a half off he usually wins the race. NORMAL SERVICE resumed!!

It's still early...

... but it looks like two years of schadenfreude for Nostro's crew is over.

Spiralling out of control again Saturn

For the umpteenth time Stoner has never been my prefered rider. It's an Aussie / Kiwi thing. You've got to admire all he brought to the sport though - unadulterated genius on a bike. One of only three real Aliens over the last couple of years with very little to separate them, men that have elevated the sport to hitherto unknown levels. - I've never brought into Stoner being head and shoulders above the rest.

Wosi is right to a degree with the electronics - how else has decidedly mediorce in the smaller classes Smith been able to get to 1.3 secs away? But to get that final degree from any machine takes pure human skill that only the best of the best possess - witness rookie Marquez. Same as it ever was. The game changes, evolves and moves on. The old guard get left behind. Edwards still last?

Smith

Up to 8th, only 1 and half seconds off pace, not bad when you consider he's not even going for quick times.
