God forbid if it was Jorge, Dani or Stoner that refused to test because of a broken pinky. The slander that would happen would reach epic proportions.

This is a test not a race, if PI was this weekend he'd be racing. When he tested the R1 after his fractured leg he wanted to see how he coped riding a race bike.

Why do so many people turn these board in to slanging matches?, if you dont like Rossi don't comment.
When all the fantastic motor cycle racers on here, who slag racers off win a world championship then you can comment how some of these riders are crap

And why would Ducati pull out after 2013 if Val doesn't win the title?

Ducati has exactly ONE MotoGP title in the history of their company - they aren't entitled to GP championships or have any history of being multiple GP title winners. They aren't Honda or Yamaha and have never dominated GP racing and as long as Honda and Yamaha are still around they never will.

What you have here is NOT the development of the 2012 Ducati. What you have here are two riders unable to adapt their ridiing to any other thing than what they've riden in the past.

MOTOGP like F1 is supposed to be the leading edge tech cars/bikes i.e carbon fiber technology. Instead we have a backwards movement to old school frame technology. And the reason for this I gave above.....two riders who cannot adapt their riding style.

I'd also suggest what Lorenzo did to Rossi what should have been done to Hamilton in F1. Hamilton made foolish moves that made the other riders backoff instead of crashing the two of them and Hamilton got away with that for a couple of yrs til the other drivers just shunted him off the road like he should have been earlier.

"They aren't Honda or Yamaha and have never dominated GP racing and as long as Honda and Yamaha are still around they never will."

RawDawg, I bet you have a crystal ball that can predict the future very precisely to have said that.

You should be very rich like the guy on "Back to the future" movie...

You would win every bet of who wins any race in this planet..
Oh my God, you will make all "online betting" websites bankrupt.. They are all at your mercy.. Oh Mighty RawDawg please spare them..

@SOme One 46. Is that the best you can up with?

You "pop" at RawDawg because you don't like his viewpoint so try to imagine his REAL life. RawDawg is just a persona of the internet. If Rawdawg had those powers he would print your final destination for all to read. Don't take the Vale letting EVERYONE down bit upset you to resorting to insulting everyone.
