Valentino Rossi eager to continue Assen revival

Valentino Rossi is eager to understand if the winning form he re-discovered in the recent Assen MotoGP clash carries on into this weekend’s German round at the tight and twisty Sachsenring. The Italian won a premier class race for the first time since the Sepang race in October, 2010 with a vintage display in Holland that saw him capture an 80th...

After 2 years on the ducati with little front end feeling im sure getting back on the yam felt amazing. However getting your trust back in the front end takes some time, so he probably wasnt pushing to the maximum at first. Yes I do know where he is in the standuing, and if he hadnt been taken out by bautista hed probably be higher. Can I ask you what your feelings are about dani and his apparent inability to come up with a setting that lets him either extend his tyre life or make the bike work on worn tyres, or cal's inability to find a set up that lets him run fast at the start of the race? Or dovi, hayden or ianone finding a setting to make the ducati work for more than a handful of laps?

How can you compare the bike Rossi rode for yamaha before he left for Ducati, to the bike he is riding now, it may look similar but thats about it. New parts throughout the season constantly change the dynamic of the motorcycle in the season its being ridden. Thats like saying you had a 1998 R1 sold it, rode a 1996 gpz900r and then rode a 2001 R1, same bike? is it f%$k.( hypotheticaly speaking). The Yamaha M1 has changed already this season in a bid to beat the Honda so the dynamics are always morphing so the rider has to find the set up to suit the new weight distribution a new part could bring. Now Rossi has found his own set up he likes from data that came from Spies and Lorenzo you will see him challenging for podiums more often.

The top 3 at the top and yet again not a surprise to see Nostro proved wrong yet again. There is a paradox in Notrosanus's make up, he confesses to be a biking guru but doesn't rate Rossi.??. Bit like am amateur club tennis player not rating Federer, actually exactly like that..

Quite the contrary Hardly Lean

Banged up Jorge doing as predicted and handing the old Friday peaker his arse this morning.

So you little yellow bed wetters think it's acceptable to take all of pre season testing and six races over six months to find a workable front end base setting? Did you read what Burgess said - a change of spring rate and a bit of shimming!? Something Jerry should be able to interpret and sort between sessions, let alone taking six months - unless the rider feedback is not all that? All this from whom were once upon a time (falsely it transpires) considered the best rider / engineer combo in the paddock.

As has been stated by various people over the past two years it took Stoner all of about two laps to own the RCV in 2011. An evolution of a bike he hadn't ridden since 2006. Two laps for Stoner. Six months for the world nr.6. Tells us all we need to know about the respective rider/engineer combo skills.

Odd how a man who has such disdain for Rossi and Burgess will eagerly believe every last word they say when it suits him and he can use it to insult them :) Do you now believe them when they say the Ducati was somewhat difficult?
