Thanks for the intro to that site.
Clarifies what I thought. He just circulated to get a feel, keeping his injured shoulder in mind. However the changes they are making are in deed not minor as I thought. Did not state they were suggested by Rossi though. Hope they were. Cheers.

nobody ever won the title during testing! so lets wait for season to start before writing anyone off, after the first few races we will be able to see if rossi can possibly win title or races even!

So what Bob if it wasn't a good test? Does that truly prove that the bike won't be sorted out to Rossi's liking come first race 2011? You can't adopt a wait and see position?? No, I reckon not.

I swear you would put a lump of coal in Rossi's stocking if you could...

Try it again without the abuse and childish name calling.
Edit by Bob: Can you give me a hint so I can have another go. I don't always remember what valuable lesson I was attempting to get across at the time! Thanks.

Spot on Stavros!

At last a fair compariso of the two, and I think the Rossi fanboys rection says it all really...

Of course when the bike does come good it will be down to Rossi's ability and not the bike, even if Hayden finishes second in every race.

i'm a big fan of rossi, but somehow i feel that the 2011 is gonna be hard for him if ducati cant find solution for the front grip. i mean that jorge is the fastest cornerman right now and casey with honda really really fast, he was the fastest on day 2 and he still can be faster maybe 2 or 3 tenth more next year. and looks like honda doesnt have any problem with his front grip either. but if ducati can find the solution, it will be stoner vs rossi i guess

"show a bit of humility now and then"
That's rich coming from you Bobby. A poster who does absolutely nothing but slag off at Rossi any chance you get. Jeez, talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Unbelievable.

Looks like the Stoner brigade have come out swinging for his chances to win it in 2011 with his on top of the world time trial test on a 2011 development bike.

That brigade now wants to stuff the Rossi fans into some sort of verbal confession/admission that he Rossi came 10th and 15th in the time trial test so we must admit that he either..

(a) Face it Rossi have lost it.
(b) Unless he wins it this year he is no good.
(c) Casey is the better rider on the Duc.
(d) Karel is better than him.

(e) Uchio is not Rossi best friend.

(f) American rider Nicky is better.
(g) Lorenzo beat him on same machinery.
