Rossi's head angle has always tripped me out. Obviously it works for him, but I just cant imagine moving that fast and seemingly not looking through the turn.

I'm fairly ceratin he looks thru the turns, he just uses his eyes, but doesn't physically turn his head a much as the others...

I've been told that he DOESN'T look through the turns. Supposedly he claimed in an interview that he knows all the tracks well enough that he doesn't have to
