FIRST POST! The most interesting thing is that Rossi is about 8/10ths faster than Checa and 2 seconds faster than Melandri and Abe (all Yamahas). Just in case people think that riders are not important...

Let's really look at this. Rossi hasn't ridden for over two months and he's only 0.17s behind biaggi on a bike he's never been on. He's got his challenge and biaggi has a history of fragging under pressure whether Honda does or not. He's temperamental, egotistical and useless outside of his very narrow groove. Rossi is adaptable, has racecraft and a much wider range of skills. He also has fun and works together with his team towards a common goal. Now who do you think will be able to withstand a season of pressure. Yamaha will give him anything he wants in a bike because they know it will reflect on them if he doesn't win at least a few races.
