    Well he played second fiddle to Mick during his career, now Rossi is here hes playing 2nd-3rd fiddle to him, been unlucky I guess, but consistantly finishes in a good position - behind Rossi and Gibenau!

    sounds exactly like a coulthard-esqe career!
    but he really should have taken the most of his position on the weekend, he was leading both rossi and gibernau before they went off and still couldnt win!

    Definently, was poor performance from him, either that or a great performance by Temata, possibly a large portion of the latter

    But yeah MotoGP is much more enjoyable to watch then F1. I am enjoying the 125's aswell, tight racing there, but nowehere near as good as the MotoGP.

    Not as much of a joke as Baross and Nicky Hayden are! Those 2 have got some decent machinery under them and performing sub standard all the time. At least max finishes anywhere from 2nd - 5th, not 4th - 10th like Baross and Hayden are like!

    Hayden has been performing a bit better in recent races, baros though should be doing a lot better i agree. it was a surprise too see robers on pole for the last race i must say, hes still on a crap bike though!

    Yeah for sure, see Biaggi's honda eat it for breakkie down the straight, from there on he had no chance. Get him on a decent bike and he will be a threat. Also its good to see Yamaha taking it to the Honda's after Honda's dominence for so long. Rossi is a part of that, but the company overall is producing some good results with that new engine with the revamped firing order.

    Its a shame that they keep having to change everything in F1 racing to try and make it more appealing.. Its kind of scraping the barrel now I fear.. Its dire sometimes...

    its just the type of sport where 0.1 of a second makes a massive difference, when you have a large group of peple aiming for perfection theres no point in being 2nd. its a lot different to a sport like cricket where u can make 3 centuries in a row and 3 ducks in a row to follow up, unfortunately someone in f1 is always gonna be the best, just at the moment the one that is the best is a long long way in front of everyone else....

    IMO< Ferrari contributes a lot to his success. Lets see him do the same with some other team.
    Do you not remember 1994/95 when he did the same at Benetton and then moved to Ferrari - Schumi's influence has had a lot to do with the Maranello renaissance.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I also hate the way Bahrain has managed to get an F1 Grand Prix.. Now correct me if I am wrong, but surely the gulf has not produced an F1 driver? And the following is hardly very impressive..

    Seems like whoever showers enough money at the sport wins through, and as usual USA and the gulf come up trumps...
