Started slow, towards the end he was posting quite a few top ten times, if he had started as quick as he finished he would have been higher up in the standings, not bad for a first attempt with the big boys :jsm:

I think back to his brief flirtation with F1, and his comment that it was a championship for engineers, not for drivers.

I believe he's starting to get the same feeling with Moto GP because of the increasing use of rider aids such as traction/launch control, slipper clutches, push button engine mapping etc., and is looking for a sport where the "pilot" is the deciding factor, not the technology.

If he gets a decent result in the final WRC round then I reckon he'll switch in 2008 - if he gets a top ten, then maybe he'll buy himself out of his contract and move over in 2007!

This is bad for biking!

We don't get WRC in the US on TV anymore even while Pastrana has driven and it showed up on a huge spectacle kind of like the Race of Champions here in the US called X-Games - not sure the rest of the world sees this competition.

Anyway it is back to a diehard sport here. I'd love nothing more than to see Rossi love driving a WRC car than be bored in GP and I suspect we'd all feel that way once it became apparent. A great sport but if he's hoping to get away from aids maybe not the right choice these days!!

Now, if your talking bad luck, the writing was on the wall for Gibrnau (still the ONLY GP rider to take the fight to Rossi EVERY weekend) after that horrific crash at Barcelona? they put him in an Ambulance to transfer him to Hospital, only for the Ambulance to be involved in another road traffic accident :jsm:
