Dovi 'folds' to fifth on factory debut
Andrea Dovizioso made an instant impact on his Repsol Honda race debut, in Monday night's Qatar season opener, rising from seventh to third - directly behind Valentino Rossi.

But the young Italian was forced to back off when his RC212V began losing front end performance, and he slipped to fifth at the chequered flag - one place lower than he had recorded on his MotoGP debut one year ago.

“I didn't start well but I was able to overtake some riders and get into third position,” confirmed Andrea. “During the first three laps the machine was performing really well - as it had during practice - and I tried to keep in contact with Valentino, but then I started struggling with the front. It was folding entering the corners and, later, also mid-corner, so I couldn't turn as I would have liked.

“I had to slow down and compensate by turning with the rear tyre. We never had this issue during practice or the pre-season tests, so we need to understand what happened and do some more work to adapt the machine to the tyres,” he continued. “It was a very hard fight today, and I'm satisfied that we learned a lot here in practice and during the race. Now we'll analyse the data and work hard for the next one in Japan.”

cause he doesn't want to be a sheep, he wants to be different which he is. He also thinks it is cursed.

Some other riders don't want either but teams make them but none can make Rossi do anything he doesn't want to.

I also happen to believe that it is largely due to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
Valentino Rossi endorsed merchandise is worth millions globaly and no other number in world motorsport is as recognised as the "46".

I'd take a guess that a distant 2nd would be the "34" from a bygone era

So now that we have all had a chance to see the race and hear the whining, does anyone have an opinion on the Dani/DeAngeles "incident?"

fair game, dani went wide and slowed down to not go off track, de angelis was just too close to him trying to get ready for draft and pass, never though danny would have ran wide.

That is my 02 pesos

I agree. Puig does not concur with your asessment.
