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"
