Valentino Rossi sets fastest pace in Jerez

Valentino Rossi enjoyed his best day in MotoGP for some considerable time in Jerez today when the nine-times world champion set the fastest time on the second day of the final pre-season test.

"Didn't hear you big-upping Cal then"

I remarked on how good his performances were... does that count?

"Trying to belittle Cal,"

Where? He's pretty much as fast as a 9 times champion... on a satellite bike... he has been in each test... that's news... are you confusing me with someone else?

"Oh..Rossi's a 9 time champ now is he?"

Have you entirely lost it? He is & always has been... have I ever said or argued any differently?... ever stated that they were in any way easy or less valid?... & he's back on a bike he likes so he can actually race again. Is being as fast as or quicker than him on inferior machinery not an achievement?... in your mind maybe not... in mine it is.

Hello4646... "Just shut up before you make yourself look a bigger c**t"

Cheers for that... your complete inability to pick any fault with what I've said proves you either have no argument or are incapable of compiling one. Wosi has a word for you...

It's not really news though...

is it Hedge? Cal's shown great speed all last year in practice and qualifying. He just needs to string it together come race day, then we might be treated to a five bike dice on occasion, if we're lucky.

Exactly... especially considering the test wasn't really completed & nobody, including Rossi, put in the fastest lap they were capable of... it's nice to see but the real news happens 1st race... something Hello4646 can't grasp.

you are a bigot.  Why are you only comparing Cal to Rossi   what about how close he is to the reigning World Champion. Only 2 hundredths slower yesterday and half a second faster today.  Get a grip mate your credibility is fading fast.
