re: "Doesn't everyone loses capabilites or motivation over time?"

yes, but that's not the problem in this instance.

You are right Norm, Rossi never had Stoner's high skill level to start with.

You can't lose what you don't have....golfclap

re: "Lorenzo, i think u have bad luck"

no, bridgestone unfortunately didn't ship a hard compound anybody could use (not even honda). M1's could barely use the hard compound on the OLD surface, nevermind running soft on a sharp edge repave. yam's 10 secs and 16 secs back respectively. jorg's race was over before it even began.


Tyres were EQUAL for everyone last time I checked Norm, Lorenzo is noted for his tyre conservation as is Spies. Good chance there skill level degraded more over race distance than the tyres.

Pressure will do that,

Loved watching Hayden working the gp11.1 hard.
Harder than Rossi. And being far more competitive than Rossi. Pity Haydens tyres let him down.
Wonder when the wall goes down the centre of the garage?

Laughed my guts up when Rossi was gifted the 10th position, 55 seconds behind Stoner.
He only got 10th because riders retired and or fell due to over used tyres. Rossi's un worked tyres allowed him to show a burst at the end of the race.
Funny funny stuff.

Long live the King..King Stoner!

Heres a simple plan for Ducati.

Dust off the gp10 and start getting podiums and wins again.

Really it should be that simple, check the times from last year, it is true, the gp10 would still be getting the podiums it did last year....the times bear this out.

So, just do it. All it needs is a champion to ride it, Rossi has nearly a year on the bike now and two thirds of a season experience.....plus he is a 9 time world champion......SHOULD BE EASY FOR HIM.

This way Ducati can get immediate results this year and the engineers can concentrate on the gp12.

Some of u posters just made it even clearer to me that there can never be peace on earth.This post us supposed to be about Stoner cruising to victory but ends up being a who's better than who slagfest.I'm a Rossi fan,and it pains me to see him struggling but that doesn't take away from my enjoyment of watching Stoner destroy his competitors.That boy can ride his a55 off.Rossi had his moment,now it's Stoners time.Let's just enjoy the racing.Dome of u act like Rossi did y'all wrong personally.Say what u will,but it doesn't take away from him being 9 times world champion.He has done much for the sport,the man deserves respect.They all do.

The gp 11.1 is the gp12 that's why they wanted to start using it rossi and ducati are thinking about the future, do you guys read any other information on motogp other than this forum? This forum is getting worse, motogp.com had a forum 10 years ago and they closed it down cos of all the crap. People blaming the tyres for Hayden not beaten Rossi or for spies beating Lorenzo. We knew before the race that the tyres would last on 7 laps

"Stoner is a great rider but he sure is making it boring to watch MotoGP"

Posted by FZ1 - Unregistered (6 hours ago)

This kind of comment makes me laugh ... first of all because MotoGP is NEVER boring. Secondly, if this were true, it's not Stoner who's making it boring, it's all the other riders who can't keep up with him!

@FZ1 - Not very intelligent are you, may be you should try out one of those on-line IQ tests and post the results on crash.net :P

hey all you guys saying motogp is boring, a tip for you..dont watch it. Watch World Champ Wrestling or Big Brother or something that is articially set up to be close. Most of you just hate Stoner and the boring part is your guy is not winning. Its not RossiGP or LorenzoGp its motogp and if you are good enough you win and if you are reaaaaaallllly good you win by the length of the main straight. Thats racing guys. What do you want us to do for you???? put square wheels on stoners bike???? f........n bunch of crybabies. Your mothers should have slapped your butts when you whinned not said "Oh baby whats wrong?". Then you might not have this crazy idea that the world is supposed to be just how you want. grow up.
