Rossi brought this on himself by calling the younger riders Pussies.
And Buress saying it would take 80 seconds to turn the Duke around.
I beleive Stoner would have won at least one race this year on the GP11.
I beleive Pedrosa slagged Haydens development skills because Honda built a bike to that only fits a 4 year old (I'm exaggerating here people).

Hayden: "The carbon isn't the problem"
Absolutly, the problem is clear VR cannot ride it and make a wrong direction on development, 4 chassis already created for VR but the result is getting slower along the season

Its about time... ducati is no better than honda when it comes to treatment of their riders... unless they happen to be italian then they get everything they want

Ridiculous they never listened to casey... ridiculous that they have used so many days all for rossi... ridiculous people still bash on hayden.... ridiculous people think rossi is actually injured.... pretty much anything involving rossi or ducati is a circus show these days but what else is new for rossi.... oh yea the lack of winning, its not going to be any better next year I'm afraid with all the testing they have done if they aren't close now they aren't going to be... I hope hayden gets a jap ride

If rossi jumps ship on ducati what does that say about him... he is suppose to be the legend, he is just gonna bomb on his italian manufacturer and italian fans and all the dream team crap... maybe that ferrari offer wouldn't have been such a bad idea, but then again driving an F1 car probly hurts the shoulder more lol

more freak injuries to follow, that red thing isn't friendly to anyone even Casey Stoner fell on it more than enough, luckily didnt get any serious injuries but it can end Rossi's carrier at anytime plus he is gettig old! Rossi try this SUZUKI "Ride the wind of change"

they aren't entitled to GP championships, and as long as Honda and Yamaha are still around they never will. ( dominate )

Posted by rawdawg.
I know its designed to provoke but that has to be one of the dumbest statements i've ever read on crash.
The reason yamaha and honda have dominated for so long is because a certain valentino rossi has dominated every rider on the grid for the last 15 years and up untill his crash and even after that he podiumed and won at sepang in 2010.
To say ducati ar'nt entitled to GP championships is beyond ignorant.

Philip Island is fast approaching.Ducati have been on the top step of the podium there 4 years in a row with Stoner at the controls.Where do you think they will finish with Rossi in the saddle?

im sure rossi could have gone to test with a dodgey pinky,even if he only tried for 10 laps or so to see if there was any improvement,. this dream ducati/rossi relationship is getting strained i think,ducati could have made a new frame from scratch,but this using the engine as a stressed part of the frame wont work,in any material, on a 1000cc powerful beast,it works on 125/250s,but never with something with so much power,ducati changing a bit here and a bit there on a frame,to appease the design agenda is plain bl00dy stupid and wont work!

LCtanner.Rossi has not dominated for the last 15 years at all!
Stoner has dominated since he came to Motogp in 2006.Look at the pole positions,race wins,race podiums, fastest laps and points scored stats if you dont believe me.And Rossi did not dominate Lorenzo last year either!
And who exactly is he dominating this year?
Take the yellow glasses off mate,Rossi is never going to dominate the grid again.The others have moved on.
