Get your facts right H5..
Up until he fell off Hedgey..which Ducati had overtaken him?
At the end of the 2nd lap, Rossi was 3 seconds behind Dovi who was leading. The last time he came across the line before he found the bump, he was 1.5 seconds behind Dovi.
His fast lap, which wasn't the lap before he crashed, was a 2-3 tenths faster than both Ducatis. It was a tenth faster than Cals.
Had he stayed on, which he didn't, there is every chance he'd have gone with Cal..probably bagging 2nd.
We can all play the hypothetical conjecture game Pal and as we know, you're a dab hand..by not including Stoners crashes in the past, then wildly extrapolating to support a distinctly Orange argument.
Give it a rest you dope..Rossi finished 12th after making a mistake which could have been avoided.
At least he had the bottle to get back on and nurse home a battered bike for points..something I don't think Stoner has ever done, apart from Laguna 08.
Sorry..did I mention LAGUNA 08..?
