dear nicky... if the 2012 bike isnt any better please jump ship and get yourself a honda or yamaha. cant help but think that if you were at gresini or tech 3 right now you would be fighting for podiums. stop letting yourself get screwed... last year you went pretty well considering the bike you are on, now lord rossi has shown up and given you the shaft again and taken away any progress you had made...

ive stayed quiet during the whole rossi/ducati debacle this year but last time i checked rossi was fourth in the standings?
not bad considering he aint gelling with the bike and shocking qualifying positions, jeez guys rossi never was a qualifier or out and out the quickest. race pace and craft is what he does best , give it a rest allready hes 4th in the standings!

Both Rossi and Hayden, are just plain lucky to be 4th,and 5th in points . Rossi has finished 2 races over 1 min behind the race winner,and has gotten a 5th ,and 6th place finish, and Hayden got a 3rd place,and a 4th place finish in the wet . They have finished every race,and alot of other riders have not, and that is why they are 4th,and 5th in the points.

This fourth you talk about comes from just circulating and picking up the crumbs from a high attrition rate above him.

There has been many accidents and injuries this year at the top not to mention Marco taking out 2 riders in 2 races and himself in another 3. Throw in the weather and he would be much further back.

The keen analysts at Ducati would be well aware that they are holding fools gold with their 4th position.

Ducati to move forward need to look at reality.

Last year so called EXPERTS said STONER was on the best bike but not pushing hard enough.what a difference a rider change makes.what do these so called experts think now.ducati made a huge mistake letting go of the only rider in the world who could ride that bike at its worst and make it look easy.STONER you have proven you are the real ALIAN and i dont mean AUSTR-ALIAN.

rossi has in no ways come close to pushing the limits of the ducati... look at how rdp, hayden, karel, and barbera all ride the crap out of the bike, and rossi is just coasting his way to a 13th even with the seamless gearbox who rossi himself said helped him by 0.5seconds per lap!!!.... now show us this improvment on the time sheet. bull**** talks... and rosssi talks a lot of it

Don't be too hard on Rossi - he has come to Mugello struggling to come to terms not just with the Ducati but also the fact that Stoner has now won more races since he entered the motogp field than Rossi has done in the same period - yes, that's right, since the start of 2006.
