Rossi was behind in points in 08 up to Laguna, and the infamous Laguna pass on Stoner moved him closer in points but not ahead. It did give him the psychological advantage, and he went on to win the season.
We fans are an impatient bunch, but so far, he looks like the slowest of the aliens. Time will tell. I look forward to Lemans and Mugello to work in his favor.
