No doubt honda management are already thrilled with the revitalization of the team and all the positive press.
I'm also happy for CS to be on the good gear with primo team mates.
Great seasons racing coming up!

The r-fanboys now have what they had always wished for. Their Rossi is now on the rocket Ducati that Casey used to to blast past him down the long straights. Is Rossi going to blast past Casey with the Ducati's acceration power this season? We'll see.

"Dani can win races when he puts his mind to it, and believe me he is more focussed this year than any! His unfortunate taking out of Hayden was youthful stupidity. No malice meant towards Hayden trying to win the title. I imagine he would rate that as his most regrettable racing moment."

And if that was his most regrettable, can you imagine how he would've felt if Hayden never took the champeen-ship?? .. Man, i would've hated to have been Dani that year... All 5 feet of him.

re: "his moaning has put alot of people of, if he rides like we all know he can, and doesnt moan he will become popular to many more people"

fwiw, can't say that i've ever once interpreted anything casey (or any other rider) has said as moaning. in fact, my thinking is to react 180 degrees opposite and listen intently to what they are saying. but, that's just me.

God, you don't half read some tripe!!No-one has a clue what is going to happen, least of all where Valentino Rossi is concerned!Casey Stoner only had 1 really successfull year on the Ducati, in 2007. Once Valentino got his speed up on the Yamaha, he did what he always does, destroyed Stoner, who was never the same after Laguna Seca in 2008!! You don't just need a fast bike to win a race as has been proved over and over, but for some reason, some people just look at how fast a rider is. Remember Assen in 2007 when V/Rossi started in 11 place on the grid?? As for moving to Ducati being a big mistake, at least Valentino has the guts to make such a daring move, I can't see anybody else having the nerve to do such a thing.

I think you'll be doing a lot of interpreting of Rossi this year shamarone, The arms will be going like windmills in the Ducati shed, and being Italians the passion will spill over like Mount Etna.

Fantastic for Ducati though, this is a brilliant multi million dollar lesson that they needed bad. They won't win a race and that will be obvious after 2 rounds. They will realize what they had doesn't come along very often and re evaluate what CV's really mean. The Superbike crowd are already on to where you've diverted money that is wasted completely.

Can't see any gain at all for you, sponsors clamour around winners, mid pack won't cut it. Look already the difference at Honda's image versus Ducati, but you need this hard lesson to show how bad this bike really is, Honda has learnt a very hard lesson in 2000's, your turn.
