Yep. Everyone who looks at qualifying and grid positions to determine Rossi's race finish forgets 14 years of racing history. That was never his strength, and (all else being equal) he is always there in the race. No one seems to go on baked tires late-race like Rossi either. Qatar's performance charging through the pack is certainly like Rossi of old. The problem with that approach these days however might be that unlike the past, there are now guys (including a certain team mate) starting on or near the pole a few seconds ahead with clear track, who are just as fast! Should be an interesting year!
