I don't really know, I would expect Alonso to beat him quiet easily in an F1 car, but the transition from F1 to bikes is a lot harder than going the other way round, so it wouldn't really prove much.

IMO both men are pretty much evenly skilled in their respective areas, and making a direct comparison simply doesn't work.

EXACTLY... Lets pitch up Rossi & Mike Tyson in a GP bike race & a boxing match!

BTW, Welcome Eric, Elgo & anyone else that I may have missed.

While we are at it lets make Red Rum race against Linford Christie!

They where 2 totally different types of runner, but we could compare them by Eric's logic right? 1 on a horse track, 1 on a 100M sprint, and one at another random event.

Not to sound defensive, but not my logic. Rossi made the challenge, not me. And I don't think it would work, I didn't make the post I quoted, someone else did.

It would seem unfair, too, as Rossi has driven all 3, and Alonso only 1, and while Alonso would beat Rossi in F1, Rossi could probably beat him in the other 2...

Rossi and Alonso, didn't Alonso say Rossi was nothing special and criticise him a while back? I've never watched MotoGP, I try to, but same day delay is rough for me, 8 AM live is better than 6 PM taped.

That's all.

Yep,I know it's a weird combination,all this fiat-ferrari thing,their quarrels... :lol:

Both have very strong personalities and talk too much,but I don't care I just like their races. :P

They do have some fine drives, don't they? Alonso's Hungary 2006 race is still one of the best things to watch on YouTube from F1 in the past 5 years...who says he can't overtake? That opening lap was brilliant.

As for Rossi, can't say much, never watched MotoGP, but he seems quite versatile with bikes, rally, and an F1 test. Would've been cool to have him and Michael as Ferrari drivers this year, he'd have quite a good mentor (like him or not).

Rossi is pure magic on a bike. His 'edge' is his ability to overtake by braking later than his opponent and control the bike on exit so it doesn't go wide. He places that bike right on the proper exit line after overtaking and that prevents his opponent from re-taking the position. That skill is down to his extreme courage and a few inherent skills that would serve him well in F1: An extraordinarily smooth throttle input and an intimate knowledge of the traction circle.

G'DAY, G'DAY, G'DAY.

Yes, I am an Aussie. And yes, we do, do it better! :king:

I am a Kimi fan. Solely as a driver mind you.

Still prefer the McLarens over the Ferraris but a girl has to follow her driver, right? Or is there room on the Hamilton band wagon??

Hope I don't tick anyone off here too badly and get myself excommunicated!

Seeya round, like a rissole!

Welcome Julie

I too share your love of Mr Raikkonen!

Although present circumstances have me leaning towards the other Finn. :wub: (maybe)

I hope you enjoy the forum, I am so far (I'm only new myself so we will see)

Ciao

If you had to match F1 drivers to animals MW would be a crow, for sure. :mf_tongue:

I won't be caught dead supporting a Mclaren driver, but I'll be the one cheering loudest if Lewis wins the championship. Schaudenfreude is the sweetest thing :D

The Webber fans are a bit touchy ;) Not aussief1, or ykick, but some others.

Welcome, and to you too, Julie.

Welcome to you Julie. Great to have some more females onboard.
