Come sunshine snow rain or sleet
Casey Stoner's the one to beat.
Glum faces in Ducati pit
They knew their man was in the S**t
The Vale fans just stand and bleat
It's time for them to suck the teat

Hey! Look at the photo!

Since Dovi and Simo are in full lean and Jorge is between them looking very off kilter I would assume this is the point that he was tossed off the bike. Is that correct?

It is nothing new for Rossi to struggle at a new track I remember Rossi's first time at Laguna in '06 he got smoked by Hayden and Edwards, Rossi was in the dirt a couple of times going through the corkscrew still finished third though. Some guys learn tracks real easy some don't so bashing Rossi 'cause he struggled at Silverstone is pointless, he has been in this position before even qualifying as low as 16th in his winning years.

Mick Doohan and Darryl Beatie both said yesterday that Rossi and Ducati were in trouble at the moment. Both of them said that using the excuse of track unfamiliarity was invalid.

I'm not going to argue with Mick.

fgjdgfl..what other reason could there be? The other Ducati riders were riding ok. Mick Doohan only won WC on a Honda at familiar and regular tracks so does he really have the experience to back up his comment. Doohan quit before Rossi had the chance to show Doohan how to fight for a championship. BTW Who is Darryl Beattie LOL

Goes to show how long richie has been watching MotoGP Daryl got closer to Mick than anyone else any one including all the other greats of the time.
Can't exactly remember how many points Mick lost by the time his leg got mashed up I think it was 2 or 3 points and that was after he missed out on half the races
Now go and take your number one spot on the podium of bulls**t typists.

The other reason is that Rossi is having trouble setting up the bike and can't get any heat into the tyres. This is what JB told Mick Doohan.

Also, you must only have a recent knowlegde of the sport as Beattie used to race with Mick. Quite good too, retired after a bad crash, lost all of his toes on one foot.
