2 wins last year and zero wins this year. Keep those excuses rolling, I've heard of people with amputations up and around in less than 18 months, even they'd keep pace with an artificial Rossi, I mean leg...

What I cant understand in all this is how Ducatti honestly thought the goat would do a better job than Stoner.

We know VR was forced to look for a new bike because Lorenzo made him look second rate last year and the Rossi brand would have suffered irrepairable damage if he stayed at Yamaha, I hope Ducatti management didnt pat themselves on the back for this little effort

"One less than perfect season" due to being shown up by team mate on same bike (designed by Yamaha not by Goat, he was just a pilot) and then on to an uncompetitive bike that Casey has been the greatest of the 800 era on..............

"The Goat", more like just above average rider who has always had the best of everything and when he has'nt (switching to Bridgestone) the toy's go out of the cot.

4 in a row at Misano to being Dorothys friend in less than a dozen comments! Class..... HRC/Repsol are throwing billions of Yen a winning an 800cc championship, its their last throw of the dice, a piece of history that will never change.

I often wonder what the situation would have been if it weren't for Dani's injury's ? Dovi does a workman like job, but is never going to set the world on fire. Casey has to be the favourite(based on form) it his for the loosing.

Camier is making references to Dorothy in his tweets too....

I'm all for team orders when needed. For example a rider may be being paid multi millions of dollars yet barely getting in the mid pack. Team orders should be "Give the feckin money back or ride the thing properly like that little fella from Aus did". We only had to pay him 75cents. Made us look real good too". See team orders do have a place.

Taken from an interview with Ducati team manager Vittoriano Guareschi.. notice which rider between Rossi and Stoner it that he singles out as being a genius with fantastic throttle control..



Q: Working first with Casey and now Valentino Rossi, how do you compare them?

A: Vale is 9 times World Champion, has a lot of experience and for Vale it is important to improve the machine, to make a result. He works a lot with the machine, the team and the group.
Casey has fantastic control especially in the throttle, The hand and the engine is the same part for Casey - this is a big talent. But maybe he is young, needs more experience.
You can say Vale is like a professor. And Casey .... not a normal student, a top student. No: he is a genius!

Q:What is testing like - is it a lot of lap after lap, mile after mile, endurance testing?

A: .............. Also, after many years in this job it is possible for me to speak to the rider about his style and I can copy his style, it is not easy and yo
