But whatever the situation is we need to thumbs-up for the persistence of Valentino Rossi, with his patience and his believe that his M1 can attack the riders in front of him, step by step he push the bike and the first move he gave to us was for Stefan Bradl, after stuck behind Bradl in 6th on the lap 8 he successfully passed The Germany rider who ride for LCR Honda and got his 5th place and continue to find the way to catch up Cal Crutchlow who at the moment 3.46 seconds ahead.
And lap by lap passed without much change in position, Valentino Rossi just focus to make the gap more closer to British Rider Cal Crutchlow, and finally at lap 18 on the corner 1 he gave the attack to Cal and he got it. No doubt the 4th position has been his own in this lap and the gap being far after Cal Crutchlow got wide ride on this corner.
Valentino Rossi confidence grew stronger, and he is increasingly convinced that the bike is still as good as before. now the target is to get a podium, and he had to do was try to chase that position from duo Honda, who since the 1st lap, very strong on that position.
Don't need to wait too long at lap 18 Valentino come closer and closer and than zappp the 3th place he got from Dani Pedrosa, so the battle for 2nd position was Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa. But Dani leave the party the gap quite far second by second, and the party for 2nd place only for Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi, really emotional battle between the nine time world champion and the wonder boy from Repsol Honda.
Marc Marquez really strong to maintain his 2nd position, but as we know Valentino Rossi has a thousand experience and with the stable bike like his M1 everything possible to him to do. Finally we can watched again the classic movement from Valentino Rossi to grab his 2nd place, and when Marc Marquez trying to get it back Valentino Rossi safe the position until the finish line and made him got 2nd place in Qatar. Just Brilliant.
The one make all his fans more adore and proud with him is when media asked him about the aggressive attack by Marc Marquez and with his humble smile he said "I love rider like that, as same as me who not complain about the attack but trying hard to respond. I thanks to Marc Marquez because he gave me the great taste and all is really healthy and honest competitive nastiness" and Valentino Rossi also give some compliment to his teammate Jorge Lorenzo for his 1st podium "My place for 1st round of MotoGP was 2nd place and I'm happy after very disappointed qualification. I'm old so need a time for something new (laugh) and Jorge Lorenzo so perfect just like computer, I asked him also you didnt feel alone to always on first place for 22 laps (laugh)".
And the uniqe think just happened after he touched the finished line, the bike just stop due the empty fuel. and Finally he got a lift from the rookie Andrea Iannone to back to the podium. Very touching Valentino Rossi back to rode the Ducati in Qatar.
So many happiness and smile at the time from 46 garage and the very dramatic moment is when Jeremy Burgess embraced Valentino Rossi with a big smile and teary eyes because of happiness. It's touching moment between genius cheif mechanical and the lovely rider ever. Hope we will often find this moment, the moment you in front with very great battle.
He's Valentino Rossi, his words, his attitude and his way to spoke with media, always very interesting and beautiful, he very easy to making all news about him be trading topic and the most wanted to read.
Last word for the 1st round of MotoGP in Losail circuit is Thank you Yamaha MotoGP to bring Valentino Rossi back and thank you to Valentino Rossi for bring the real meaning of racing in this championship is back.
