Yes, sure, sure sure, Rossi will sort the Duacti.... Well, it is all documented: Rossi never crashes, and for sure never get injured due to crashing. Rossi will NEVER bin it on the last race and loose his title to some kid from the south-east of the USA. Rossi will ALWAYS sort his bike and never loose to ANY teammate. Rossi never pick the wrong tire, Rossi will never run into other racers, Rossi loves Biaggi. Rossi is this, Rossi is that. The yellow planet is really blinding!

To the poster(didn't notice your tag) who thinks this is an unmoderated site...Tough.

If you mean it isn't the past days of anything but posts on Crash about how great the great one is while just being great.. Then good. The Moderator here now does a Sterling job and only deletes problem posts rather than annything bad aboput the greatest since the greate..... Bored.

Vale did what he could with the tools he had. He did a good job and made it entertaining as "Jaws" George stalked his prey and took the lead. He still finished second, not last. Another trophy and a bottle of fizzy Pop.
I hope that we NEVER see a return to a singular dominant rider EVER again. The Championship handed over to another worthy Champ every year would be the way forward.

Can anyone understand just how hard Rossi will try to win in his last race for Yamaha? If he loses to Lorenzo he will, possibly for the first time, have to admit that Lorenzo is the new king. Yes I know he is carrying an injury but he should, for prides sake, be able to ride through that pain. I think we could be in for a real treat particularly as Casey has a point to make also!!

If I was the chief engineer at Yamaha I would set an electronic "timebomb" to revert Rossi ECU to Tech3 settings on the warm up lap. To whip the smile off his face and make the continued signings smile ever broader. So easy to do and so hard to prove.

Why not do the same to Casey too!?

I love it how Rossi always makes excuses when someone beats him!

Rossi's bike is already faster than Lorenzo's because Lorenzo doesn't get the latest upgrades until way later.

Rossi losses to Lorenzo because Rossi is generally not as good as Lorenzo.

This year Lorenzo has truly become the master of controlling and winning races. He really stepped up his game and he is champion because this year he was the best and most consistent.

You are only saying this to get a rise out of people. If you believe it, then you are a sad man.

Lorenzo's contract this year clearly stipulates that he gets the updates at the same time as Rossi and he does his own development.

Why do you think Rossi is picking up his toys, crewchief and crew and running away?

Ducati will bring him back up to Prima Donna status. That of course will be his last.

I have a feeling that Jorge is the new Alex Criville.

He has serious speed but has been gifted the bike of a champion (Doohan in Criville's case)

I can see Rossi vs Stoner next year.
The Yamaha will drop back like the Honda did in 2004.

Once the new 1000cc rules come into place,I hope Spies gets an input into development.He is without doubt the best superbike rider in the world and it would nice to see him do with the M1 1000cc what he did with the R1 in 2009.

But watch out for the Bologna Bullet !!!!!!!!!!!!
