Like the rest of the "three aliens", before his title challenge in -12, he's been at his best, when he's able to ride his own race, preferably break away at the front and not get tangled up in a fight. Rossi can have it either way. But of course he'll need to be able to stay with Lorenzo&Pedrosa first.
MM seems to have that ability to fight hard, but sometimes his judgment fails him. But the dude is barely twenty (or is he still under that?) so he will learn. Just hoping his learning process isn't a painful one!
Yeah, Rossi sure is entertaining to watch. I think he has that determination and passion to pull "stunts" like Laguna 08... that was just insane and not just the cork screw, but the whole race... well...until Stoners ambition outweighed his talent.
#58 was entertaining to watch too, maybe even wilder than Rossi.
I hope Iannone can figure that Ducati out. That could turn interesting...
