same thing happened to Hayden when Pedrosa fell off testing a honda. Hayden was left with all of the testing and Pedsrosa was laying in a hospital bed with a broken/dislocated some thing blaming Hayden. Hayden went on to do god knows how much testing and Pedrosa still complained. :Pedrosa's still there and Hayden is still testing.

@AusUsa. I would love nothing more than Nicky to post some times closer to whats expected. If Nicky is the more positive of the two, he should be the one rewarded for his efforts.
Broken Fingers aren't funny, even when on Vale. I can't see why he still has the index and thumb of left hand working that he doesn't test. He can still hang on and force the bars around.
The situation smells...

I am stunned and surprised.
At exactly the time Ducati needs Rossi to make a stand and be accountable - he hurts his little finger and cannot ride!

Rossi needs to give something back to Ducati this season, instead he provides zero.

But Vespas are quicker than Ducati at the moment!!

Anyone are they sure it wasn't his middle finger that he hurt? He's worn it out flicking it the Dook management all the time!

What I don't understand why he needed an xray. I thought there was enough radiation coming out of Fukushima that all he would have to do it hold his hand in the general direction of the nuclear plant that he would get is own xray.
I all fairness I hope Rossi has a speedy recovery

@Sasha. There is alot of forward planning at the tracks to ensure you're the only one there that day. The tracks have to make money and sub the use out every day if it's run properly. Maybe that's the reason? Or whatever day they planned Vale Pulled a sicky?
