Wow, why can't people just be happy Nicky finally gets to ride the bike again... I'm not exactly a fan of his, but it's nice to see Duc have to finally use both their riders.

As for Pedrosa's comments about him, at least Hayden has a championship on a Honda. Lucky or not, it's more than Pedro can say....

@ ah seng rossi

You have no clue mate... Luca Scassa rode a production bike at Mugello (I think) this year, as a track day instructor, thereby violation testing restrictions and was banned from a race... Come to think of it, maybe Rossi SHOULD do that...

So Rossi riding with a messed up shoulder that required surgery at Valencia was enough to give feedback to fundamentally change the Ducati, but he cannot ride and give feedback with a broken pinky?

How does that make any sense?

It makes me laugh at those wimps like Doohan who nearly had his leg chopped off and he had a thumb brake or Daryl beattie who rode with half a foot missing.

Bunch of girls, here's Rossi nearly doing the impossible with a sore pinky that was luckily found to have a fracture after the highly skilled medical staff at Motegi missed it.

Lucky he has his own doctor who also found his on again off again shoulder problem.

You are a brave soldier Rossi.....leading the way as usual.

This season just gets worse for Rossi... maybe, hopefully... this bad season will turn around into a good season next year

@Tax Dodger it's not anything to do with being a pu$$y he got a hairline fracture in a crash... he can't control injuries he gets in a fall... he'll still race.

BTW i agree Stoner pu$$y watch Faster... you'll agree... he constantly moanes about wheel-to-wheel racing saying its dangerous he's more a pu$$y than the rest...

get well soon Rossi... I'm sure it won't affect you on the bike when the adreneline gets going.

Bet Hayden never thought how great this season would be partnering Rossi. Certainly has lifted the team spirit at Ducati and also nice to let Hayden do the donkey work for a really bright 2012.

What a team.....brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!
