The Rossi Interviews

As people here know, I am no fan but thought these interesting and will openly admit that I preferred part 2 given the rider commentary

Part 1:





Part 2:

Some good comments on fellow riders and as an Aussie, loved the comments about Gobert and interesting take on Stoner.
Also interesting to watch his obvious distress with Simoncelli but also you can see it with nicky as well

Part 2 was good. Seems more like his old self having regained his sense of humour, concerning which I find it within myself to be pleased.

Part 2 was interesting.

Much as I dislike Rossi, I have not seen him that relaxed/natural probably since he was 29 or 30 years old.

Difficult to watch his reaction when he talked about Simoncelli. I think that was highly traumatic for him since he was involved directly in that crash. I don't know if I could have gotten back on a bike after that.

Of note: They made a list of all the riders he has beaten in races, even though he still has several left to go, so . . .

Ot a fan any longer but he seemed quite charming and relaxed. Interesting and seemingly frank complimentary comments about Stoner, Lorenzo and Marquez. Then again, he pretty much had to go in that direction. To quote Senna yet again, “the results speak for themselves.”

The charm and his own results are what garnered him the fanbase in the first place.

I will be supporting teams and riders on teams other than his, but it is good to see him not being bitter as he seems to have been in most interviews for a number of years as has been said, and perhaps he is moving forward now, which is again good given he is a rather major part of gp bike racing history.

I will get around to watching this but I would say taking the decision to retire, having a kid on the way and having no pressure to win or get results just enjoy his last season has taken some pressure off of him. He is probably in a lot better place now and from what everyone on here is saying, that's coming through in his interview.

I just find it unfortunate that it took the final stages of his career to give this sort of interview. How genuine it was? Who really knows because we know he has a long memory for transgressions or supposed transgressions against him. It's actually disappointing that it took till now on that large of a broadcast stage to say some good things about Casey. At the same time it doesn't undo that he never apologized for the vitriol that he helped foster towards Casey. Though I suppose in the end does it really matter any longer? His career is going to be whitewashed entirely and the unsportsmanlike behavior will entirely be forgotten or only remembered on niche places such as here.

Thanks for pointing out how ridiculous and obsessive it is to be talking about recent interviews he has given Albert.
