With stoner retiring, that moves rossi one step closer to the podium. I see a replay of 2010 and walls going up in the garages.

Doubts. Whoregay has matured a lot in the last two years, and Rossi has been given a bit of a reality check. I feel like they'll both be much more level-headed next year.



...but I still hope Rossi wipes the floor with everyone at least a few times, just to shut up all the haters.

There would be hot chicks in this signature if the site would let me.

I am not a hater, but did doubted him this season. I agree with you, and hope he wipes the floor a few times. At the very least, go head to head with Jlo the majority of the races, even if he doesnt win!

JLo has a big ego. He isn't going to care about already winning the championship. He will race all out to beat Stoner one last time. Especially after getting his crap pushed in at Phillip Island. I mean, it is his last opportunity to race Stoner.

Pedro is pissed he crashed out, he will go hard too. Ego.

It is Stoner's last. Big ego there too. He will probably either win or crash out I am thinking. Unless he just has no where near the pace of either JLo or Pedro.

In short, the championship being decided isn't going to change anything IMO. All of these guys want to stomp all over each other one last time this season.

Marquez is a douche. How many times this season has he pulled bullshit moves during a practice session?

The closest Marquez will get to Rossi is on the cooldown laps.

FP1 -

1 Nicky Hayden Marlboro Ducati Team Ducati GP12 1:44.485
2 Dani Pedrosa Repsol Honda Team Honda RC213V 1:45.490
3 Jorge Lorenzo Yamaha Factory Racing Yamaha M1 1:45.945
4 Andrea Dovizioso Yamaha Tech 3 Yamaha M1 1:46.021
5 Alvaro Bautista Honda Gresini Honda RC213V 1:46.413
6 Aleix Espargaro Power Electronics Aspar ART 1:46.574
7 Valentino Rossi Marlboro Ducati Team Ducati GP12 1:46.678
8 Cal Crutchlow Yamaha Tech 3 Yamaha M1 1:46.839
9 Randy De Puniet Aspar Team MotoGP ART 1:47.039
10 Casey Stoner Repsol Honda Team Honda RC213V 1:47.527
11 Stefan Bradl LCR Honda MotoGP Honda RC213V 1:47.825
12 Karel Abraham Cardion AB Motoracing Ducati GP12 1:47.862
13 Katsu Nakasuga Yamaha Factory Racing Yamaha M1 1:48.110
14 Michele Pirro Honda Gresini FTR 1:48.244
15 Ivan Silva BQR BQR-FTR 1:48.918
16 Danilo Petrucci Ioda Racing Project Ioda 1:49.143
17 Hector Barbera Pramac Racing Team Ducati GP12 1:49.444
18 Colin Edwards Forward Racing Suter 1:49.748
19 James Ellison Paul Bird Racing ART 1:50.735

Nicky Hayden quickly came to terms with the conditions, posting the fastest time in the full-wet first session and the third-best in the nearly dry afternoon outing. Valentino Rossi was unsatisfied with the settings on which he started the day, so he and his team made some changes that showed promise in the afternoon and could be explored further in the case of more rain in the coming days.
