Rossi is riding to save face for the rest of the season.He knows he has no chance of catching the leaders unless some freak catastrophe befalls both Stoner and Lorenzo.His aim now is to keep Hayden and Spies behind him in the championship table,but i think he will find even that a tough challenge now.

It's sad to hear Rossi talk about race plans nowadays. He seems deflated and like he's lost all hope. Gone are the talks of wins and podiums, in are the talks of "reduce the gap".

Stoner was extremely good on the Duc! but no one else has replicated that. With that said Rossi had no input on direction of the bike this year and that is why all the talk of set up, changes, 11.1 frames to compensate for whatever disadvantages the duc is tossing Rossi's direction (based on his style etc). I think Stoner is just fast with whatever he gets..Rossi usually has the advantage of the company revamping a bike to suit him. This was not the case this year because of the limited testing schedule. If next year the Ducs are not fighting for podiums (at least) then maybe I would say Rossi will not see another championship, but to re-route development riders (inc VR) require much testing time. I think Stoner got somewhat lucky with a great bike and little input from him, in the previous year.

PS..Honda hasn't been exactly lighting the world on fire during this 800 era...so arguably this is the best bike they have built since this started and just so happens that Stoner jump on to this ship this year. He is a good rider but I also believe that his championship year as well as this year (where I believe he will win it) he happens to be on the best bike on the grid. I am not knocking him, just saying he has either had luck on his side or he made smart informed decisions. really the only guy this decade, to win a title on what was probably inferior machine was Nicky...keeping in mind that Nicky was the #2 pilot who won while being used as a test "dummy." he won on an "EVO 211V" ..who does that during a championship year? point is..the top guy with the better bike always (usually)wins ...so we can't knock Rossi for his situation, Stoner never won a title again either when the DUC was not the best. Yes, at least he won races but Rossi is riding a bike primarily developed by Stone

I am getting pissed off of hearing people say Stoner wins by luck!
How the fck do you win 23 races on the flying red barge by luck?
And now he has won 5 of this seasons 10 races that is luck too!
Boll*cks!
Watching Rossi wobbling around on the Duke now is proof to me that Stoner won by skill NOT luck.The bike Rossi is riding now has nothing to do with Stoner.If it is failing to win it is down to the current pilot and his team.
