Valentino Rossi reflects on disastrous first lap exit

Valentino Rossi was fortunate to escape injury after the Italian’s hopes of claiming a home podium in Mugello were ended by a disastrous first lap collision with Spaniard Alvaro Bautista. The factory Yamaha rider was trying to gain lost ground after a sluggish start from seventh on the grid when he collided with Bautista’s Gresini Honda RC213V at just the third...

I agree, the new qualifying format is shit. Getting the tyres warmed up, avoiding traffic and trying to stop 'lesser' bikes getting the 'tow', then there is no time to put in a decent lap. It is more down to luck if you manage to get a clear track with hot tyres, rather than the skill of the rider.

Perhaps Rossi is going about the qualifying in the wrong manner. Instead of trying to get a clear track, he should just go out there and get on somebody elses 'tow'. If you can't beat them, join them.

Hedgey..

..you are a trolling nicampoop son.:wacko::blink::huh:

Qualifying doesn't score any points whatsoever..how many times does this have to be pointed out to you? I mean..if qualifying determined titles, Stoner would have 5 or 6 championships.

Front row starts, while nice, aren't particularly necessary when you have the skillset and racing brain of a 9 time champ like Rossi.

On how many occasions have we seen him ride through from a bad start? He does it all the time..and he did it again only a few weeks ago at Qatar. It's why everybody adores him!

He's just having a bit of bad luck at the moment.. hold tightly onto those twisted panties kiddo, and wait and see. 

Love the manning up joke..hahaha..if only we could all be as butch as you sailor.

He 'done' it all the time bud, not 'does'.....................anymore. Blame Old Father Time, not me.

Qatar was slightly more than a few weeks ago as we all know. Hopefully he'll finally retire at the end of this season, leaving a seat to someone who'll make good use of it..............................................and maybe Vale will set a team up to keep the yellow bellies happy?

If Rossi needs to retire, then most of the Motogp line up needs to retire, as he is still better than most.

Oh come on Pacey..how many weeks ago was it then?

What constitutes a few and a bit more than a few? Has Rossi completely lost it again in the minute difference you reckon is relevant?. Fuck me..it's a lot less time than the 2 years at Ducati you all said proved he was a mid-packer and should retire?  

You're being ever so slightly pedantic, and appear more than a little desperate.

Prepare to drop those bob-stained orange Bermuda's and take what you've got coming softlad.

Rossi is far from retiring....

He's still better than most of the paddock on a bike, he's a PR dream and a character that the MotoGP circus has built itself around. Admittedly, when he does hang his leathers up, the racing will continue, but that date shouldn't be nowhere near the present day. Fingers crossed he'll get it together, as more scrapping up front and more actual racing throughout the whole of each race (rather than the usual precession) the better it will be for all racing fans. He's on a top bike, he just needs to pull his finger out and play with the cards he's been dealt.

At the start of this season, i would have Rossi taking at least 3 wins. What with rainy conditions, maybe some offs from the competiton? I still reckon Vale can take 3 wins, but we've had Le Mans in rainy conditions and Mugello. That should have been 2 . Jus't get on with it now Rossi!
