Not mentioned here

but reported on Italian website GPOne, Rossi also improved dramatically, having been a fraction under Pedrosa's time before Lorenzo headed the timesheets. Both he and Pedrosa had broken the race lap record (although not Q record).

He has found a breakthrough in braking which has given him greater confidence to push the brakes hard (as if the top riders don't already brake like demons!).

Roll on Assen!

Well done Jorge

On a bike that is said to be 0.5s a lap slower than a Honda, he's 0.5s a lap quicker than the fastest Honda.

So is he really a second a lap quicker than Marquez and Pedrosa or is the Yam a little better than some like to admit.

I said at the beginning of the season that the yamaha was the most complete package out there, anyone on this forum suggesting it is not is just trying to make excuses for valentino rossis failure this season.

Rossi

failing. No. Getting to grips with a bike he has had no part in in two years. Yes. Knocked off by an over zealous Spainard and an invisible bump. Yes. Failure. No

Marquez getting to grips with

a type of motorcycle he's never ridden before straight off the bat. Yes.

Rossi. Whinging and moaning and unable to find the impossible - a set-up to make him as quick as the three amigo's on a motorcycle he should know like the back of his hand. Yes.

To be fair and unbiased

he is ahead on points than Dovi (one point I grant you), who has not had a dnf. So come on give the old fart a break. In fact yamaha have given him some brakes so he can go faster......................?
