Correcto! WSBK dropped Qatar. (wish motogp would too)

No excuses for not knowing the track. He raced there for the 1st time in 2009 and took superpole and 2 wins having never seen the track.

Let's not forget crash happy Rolling Stoner when he was on the satellite Honda.

R6-Rider, do you really expect any racer in the lead going into the last lap to just let someone pass them without putting up a fight? ROFL

I think they should encourage him to do things a little less agressively. Not saying he is dirty, just very aggressive.

I race here and know really well how to ride

and I agree with taking off at least some of the rider aids, but then stoner would just win by that much more. we all know what happens when lorenzo rides without TC....

I kinda dig the Qatar race under the lights. It really sets of how much work really goes into those bikes. I think Rossi has lost some of his nerve. It seems like ever since his wreck that broke his leg, he hasn't been the same.

The motogp layout at Aragon puts a chicane in the middle of the long straight, so Qatar is the longest straight of the season.

According to MotoGP.com, Mugello, has the longest straight at .700 of a mile. Qatar runs
.664 of a mile and Aragon is .609 of a mile.

He has been racing for Ferrari for years, this year he signed to race an endurance series starting this weekend at Monza in a prepped 458 Italia.

Let me correct you one more time lol
Has doesn't race and hasn't race for FERRARI, he is racing as a wildcard his OWN 458 Italia. He WILL race for ferrari now with his own car but this time backed by Ferrari.

Rossi has been quoted saying he would like to sign another 2 year contract in MotoGP (didn't say with what team) but he would also like to see Ducati winning races before he leaves. He has tested 4 wheel race cars, but hasn't commited to leaving bikes just yet. I believe he even tested an F1 car as well (I could be mistaken though)

So, you think unless he is in a bright red F1 car with Ferrari written all over it as the primary sponsor, he isn't driving for Ferrari? I posted one picture of him racing a car as that one is the most recent that I have seen. If you have the time to sit infront of a computer for weeks, ill find the photos and articles of all the other races he has been in, backed by Ferrari each and every single time.

Do You REALLY think Valentino Rossi, the most famous athlete to ever come out of Italy, is going to race an Italian brand without its full support? That's cute.

He was also quoted several times saying he would end his 2 wheeled career on an M1, and that ain't happening. Yes he tested an F1 car in 2008, 2009, and is rumored to be doing it again soon. I believe he was half of a second off the lap record from the previous race at that venue the last time he tested. Ferrari boss has openly stated, if a 3 car team were allowed, Valentino Rossi would go in one of those seats.

He's a natural talent. Not sure what his problem with the Ducati is since the other riders had decent finishes.
