Valentino Rossi was nearly fourth last weekend . . . before Andrea Dovizioso (Honda) edged past him at the finish line by a fraction of a second. In the press release provided by Ducati after the race, there is a clear indication that Ducati is pleased with the development of their MotoGP bike since Valentino Rossi and his crew chief, Jeremy Burgess, came on board. Apparently, Rossi posted some lap times during the race that were similar to those run by the leaders. If Rossi can become competitive with the other “aliens”, this year will get even more interesting.
