The boys done good - everyone should know the results by now, but it\'s here anyway

Rossi
Biaggi
Bayliss

OK so Rossi still cleared off into the distance, BUT another podium finish in the third race!!!

And after Ducati had rattled everyones cage with a 1 and 2 in qualifying. I reckon we could be looking at the same result in a race before the end of the season, especially if Rossi has an off day.

Bayliss is having an impressive start in MotoGP, especially since he's still learning circuits. OK, so Capirossi tends to outqualify him (by 100th of a second at Jerez), but Loris seems to be under a bit of pressure as the Italian rider who's also got MotoGP experience. At the moment it seems he could do with the Finnish rally drivers pun "To finish first, first you have to finish"

what I liked was the Bayliss attitude, - he was peed off with just 3rd, and bored racing on his own, - even Rossi laughed. I really believe the guy is earning more respect with each Moto GP he has done. He has proved that he is not afraid of the Rossi's position, - and that he realises that he could get a better overall position at the end of the year than Capo but showing a little more restaint than his team mate.
I cannot wait for Donnington, - I think if Ducati get the setup right, and Bayliss will have an advantage here, we are on for a win from "our" boy Bayliss.

Empressive is the fact he is third in the championship points, early days indeed but still. 5th, 4th now third, so Mugello for a win at that rate.

Traction

It does still seems that we are still suffering from traction problems when laying down all that power!! if Ducati could just get that sorted then watch out Honda!!!

Still makes me laugh though just thinking about Bayliss being bored with 200+HP

If only he could do it all day, would have been another good points scoring finish if he had stayed on, Ducati could do with the points in the manufactures championship.

Bayliss

Brilliant to see and just like in WSB last year he is so pleased just to be there and is racing because he loves it. Who can forget the interview at the end of the WSB season when he was so humble in defeat. A true champion.

We just need Michelin to develop a tyre that will withstand the huge pounding the desmosedici is dishing out and then it might be a truly different story..

Then we will see some riding cos Rossi will have to up the stakes once again. For some reason I think he's up to the challenge

Agree with Guido, fantastic to see Capirossi sliding the Sedici, and Baylis on the podium-the genuine 'no worries' Aussi.
But-Rossi is on another level, sliding the Honda round the turns at the end just to show he can and to amuse the crowd. Don't get me wrong I want to see Ducati on the top step as much if not more than most-that's why I'm riding down to Mugello in 2 weeks time-can't wait. I think the traction problems that Corsa are having is more to do with too much power rather than anything else. That thing is a MISSILE, fastest Gp bike ever, and lets not forget guys it's only it's THIRD race, most of the other manufacturers have got at least 12 months racing behind them. And thats where they are-behind the Ducati.
