I personally found it thrilling to watch Rossi lead for two reasons.
One, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time staring at the Yamaha sayin' "don't break down, don't break down, don't break down you p.o.s.!"
And for two, I frankly enjoy watching Rossi wipe the floor with everyone. It never gets old!
Anyone whose complained about something like this has obviously never raced before, and has no idea how difficult it actually is to lead a race and keep it.
