Ducati need to build something better than the Yamaha if they want to even consider besting Jorge Lorenzo and his record breaking form in 2011.
Hope they can do it.

Getting fed up with the shoulder excuse now.Anyone would think he is the only rider to have such an injury.Get over it and get on with the job you are being paid to do.I am not being anti Rossi in any way but this is getting a bit boring.If Stoner was harping on about a shoulder injury for this long he would be getting a right slagging on here and we all know it.Time to move on.

Never discount Rossi haha! He always finds a way to win! More importantly he can develop a new 2012 bike!

Jorge will be competitive in 2011, but can he develop a new bike for 2012?

Casey and Dani will be competitive in 2011, but Dani cannot develop a 2012 bike, maybe Casey can!

Talk about a haughty attitude!!! Look at the difference between Ducati and Yamaha. When Yamaha took on Rossi, it promised that it would do everything to make sure Rossi would get the bike he wanted. Even if meant moving away from its signature 5 valve engine, it did the required changes. Ducati, you have won just one championship, don't get too big for your shoes.

Rossi has much to prove moving to Ducati. He questioned Stoner's efforts on the red bike. IMHO he will come out stronger than ever this year, he's probably already working on his overall fitness and will tame the Ducati, never discount out the Doctor. But what do I know, I'm only an armchair racer.

Fitness has nothing to do with it Yam46.All these guys are as fit as a butchers dog.Noone more so than Stoner but it did not stop him losing the front end half a dozen times last year!
Ducati do not need to build a red M1 this season to win the championship.They need to build something vastly superior to stop Lorenzo from romping off into the distance again.
