From Superbike Planet.com:
Possible Sign You've Had A Lobotomy ...

Formula One champ Fernando Alonso (perhaps just slightly jealous because of the attention paid to Val Rossi at the recent F1 test?) has spoken out about his MotoGP chances, telling the BBC regarding Val Rossi's chances in F1, "He might finish fifth or even get on the podium some time, but I could do the same on the bikes if I was given a bit of time to practice."
I think all MotoGP fans will agree that while what Alonso has said may hint that he's had a lobotomy, at the same time it's actually actually quite true. He would podium in MotoGP if someone gave him a bit of time to practice (you know, fifteen minutes or so). He might even win.
Just as long as the rest of the MotoGP grid were held in the pitlane at gunpoint.
Pretty funny stuff. Schumacher's times on a MotoGP bike would get him lapped around every 6 laps, but Alonso could put it on the podium, with a little practice of course. I am quite sure that he will get invited to ride many bikes now just to shut him up.
