So whats going to happen in Qatar? From last GP seeing Rossi start in the thrid row i thought that he would ride smart and finish strong. But then crashing on the first lap? I am a big fan of Rossi but i hope to see him finish strong this year. Hopefully it was just bad luck. But seeing pedrosa start out so great in his first real GP race shows that Rossi will have some good competition this year.
I think Rossi will atone for 'his' mistake in Qatar. Though I'd call it more bad luck than a mistake, this shit happens in racing. Pedrosa had a strong debut, it'll be interesting to see if he can hang in for the season. Finally, I think Capirossi is the man Rossi will be chasing for the championship throughout the season.
What an amazing race! Stoner did a great job, but the rookie just couldn't hold back the thirsty vets! I was on the edge of my seat when Hayden and Rossi were battling it out. What an amazing ride by all the top seven riders.
