I think Rossi was letting the Americans have their day. But, the SpeedTV interviews related how familiarity with the track helps in the corkscrew and knowing where the bumps are. I'm sure Rossi could have pulled closer to Haydon, but he was slower after turn 5 and over the hill, so I think he probably decided not to risk pushing through that section and settle for a podium finish.



Also, if Nicky was being pushed we don't know that he wouldn't have responded and gone faster to stay in front.

I missed the show, because I couldn't believe they would ever sell out. In the past I've brought my own lunch and drinks and just make a picnic out of it. You used to be able to just saunter up to the turn 4 grandstand just before the race and sit in front of the screen, but I'll know better for next year.
