catalunya

the spanish grand prix, catalunya. a home race for sete gibernau.

sete started the race from pole position, along side him was team mate marco melandri. and to complete the front row, rossi was in third place. but hey... what is start grid for rossi anyway? he always do it bad. rossi never made a good start in his motogp career. he does it on purpose? just to make things more exciting? god knows.

watching rossi in motogp reminds me ali in boxing. for them sport is not only sport, but also showbiz.

anyway, catalunya was definitely honda's track! yamaha was not really THAT good, it was just rossi factor. 6 hondas versus 1 rossi ...err yamaha in the leading group. they changes places a lot, they run very close. sete eventually touched marco's rear wheel! whooo...

where are the other yamaha riders? somewhere in the back of the pack, behind kawasaki or something.


tyres issue.

catalunya's surface was bad, bad. tyres worn out quickly. see how they slide all they way in the braking zone? bridgestone was the worst tyre supplier. they have to pull alex hofmann and john hopkins in to the pit to change tyres. ducati desmosedici's power was good, but with bridgestone's poor performance, their bikes never had a chance to compete for podium.

and yes, valentino was again playing with a race leader (just to make things more exciting?). he was on hard front hard rear. the race leader, sete gibernau was on medium front hard rear. i think valentino can make the pass anywhere in the race, but just sit there right behind sete, watching sete's tyres worn out. just 3 laps before finish valentino made the move. it was clean and easy. it was valentino rossi! :p
