Rossi - impossible to live with Stoner's speed

GP legend talks about Stoner's form

MOTOGP LEGEND Valentino Rossi says he has no answer to Casey Stoner's astonishing pace in China.

The Yamaha riding Italian pulled everything he had out of his locker in order to beat Stoner, but Stoner's outright pace and straightline speed kept Rossi at bay and Stoner notched up his third victory of the season on his ultra-quick Ducati.

"The speed difference is incredible and I've never seen anything like it. It's impossible to live with that speed. I tried to play my cards, I had to decide to just follow or to try and attack. I tried to fight Casey because following him until the end of the race is not in good taste." said Rossi

Valentino lies in second place in the championship chase. Many thought he main rival would be Repsol Honda's number one rider, Dani Pedrosa. Stoner now leads the championship by 15 points.
