What a sad state of affairs, It's obvious to seemingly all of us at this point that no amount of testing is going to transform the current carbon-framed Ducati into a front-runner. It's a flawed design, it handicaps the rider with limited feel nor can it seem to consistently generate heat into the hard-compound Bridgestones. Ducati, you have ROSSI, take this opportunity to swallow your pride and build a more conventional bike that WORKS and the results will come.

A small part of me hopes Ducati is skipping the 1000cc test because they're resigning the GP12 with a more conventional frame... but I doubt it :P

To those that think Rossi is going to ride a honda in motogp again, it wouldn't happen. That's exactly why he left Yamaha- He realised he couldn't beat his younger faster team mate fair and square anymore. So Why would he return to Honda and get beaten even harder by Stoner. Honda don't need him at all, and maybe they wouldn'y even want to lease a bike to him. Rossi's next move should be to superbikes.

@ nameless horse

yup..i have heard a lot of dat 2

if you paid attention to wat he wrote in de blog, it says dat de ducati front end gives different feedback to the rider. the reasons he has clearly mentioned

for dat u need a different riding style....he has mentioned dat stoner had a riding style which still managed to control the ducati in the corners. seeing dat he has spent most of his moto gp career till date on ducati, its no surprise he adjusted himself to it

rossi on de other hand never rode a L config engine in moto gp. all his wins are on a normal V config engine which gives different front end feedback ( mentioned in de blog). He suited his riding style as per it. Now if u tell him to change his riding style, you cannot expect same performance

And also its IN A WAY his riding style which has helped him win championships. So y should he change dat. Rather change the bike

you talk about adaptability...stoner went from a problematic bike to a gud one

Rossi went from a gud one to a problematic one.

Simply speakin, a beggar can happily live in a palace but a king cant live in a slum. So rather than the king becoming a beggar, its better if the king makes the slum a palace. Now dat takes resources as well as time.

@SwissJudge

It's almost sad watching you wind up fan like that. Poor guy is probably about to have a stroke.

Stoner in his first year on the factory Ducati won the championship, he did not adjust to it over fours years.

Rossi will not do this.

Stoner in his first year on the factory Honda is favourite to win the championship, with the same riding style as you mentioned before.

and

Stoners first year on a factory Honda and the only time he has not finished was when Rossi took him out.

Rossis first year on a factory Honda, exactly how many times did he crash?

MotoGP is incredibly enjoyable

well...if rossi wud have a race top speed of 275-280 kmph last race instead of 265, no doubt he wud be winning dis championship too

its easy to just say dialogues....first check the circumstances under which he won....in 2007, the ducati was a rocket...the other bikes cought up in the coming years.....just check how many wins stoner got dat year compared to the next....

reagrding stoner's performance dis year compared to last and similarly rossi's,

didnt you bother reading my beggar story ??? i dont think ur mind could comprehend it.....take some help

and lastly....ur comparing Stoner's and Rossi's first year on the Honda....dey both wer in different ages my dear....heard sumthin called electronics in de bike..it wasnt that famous back den
