That marc sounds like another stonerfanboy. Back to the original point of the article in Hayden replacing Rossi for the GP12 test. It's no big deal but it's good that Hayden gets the opportunity to ride it and give his input. While Rossi's and Hayden's riding style might be different from past comments from both on the Duc these seem fairly similar. That said it's not an issue and for the conspiracy theorists Hayden won't be blamed for his input that's just silly.

This may also be Rossi's way of getting another rider's feedback instead of just his and the worthless test riders they have. While may not be the best rider to test the limits of the bike he's good enough to know if it feels right or not. Anyway good for Hayden.

Very good marc you can quote as many stats as you like, if nine world championships in all classes isnt dominating then i dont know what is.
Its world championships that a legend like rossi will be remembered for.
Thank yourself lucky you've witnessed it.
Another stat for you 100 + race wins in all classes.
Makes all the other riders on the grid look pretty average dont you agree.
And whos to say there isnt more to come if ducati pull there finger out there **** and build him a bike he can win on instead of the pile that stoner developed.

They don't build them like the 500cc guys any more... Ohh yea Rossi is one of those guys... everyone seems to forget that... they were all tough ba$tards and Rossi is tough ba$tard as well...i think if he was a whimp he wouldn't have returned 41 days after a compound break to his leg which could have ended his career... you wouldn't see that with many of the new bread riders... they're all up in arms when someone makes a close pass saying "he nearly took me off" not like the rainy, schwantz, doohan days and the early 2000's especially Stoner... anyone that remembers Laguna 2008 and has seen Fastest will know what i mean. He'll be taking the sensible option... let it heal for Phillip Island let Hayden contribute to the development and then probably test it again between Sepang and Valencia... there's no point in falling off and making the finger worse before the end of the season and just before all the official 1000 tests begin.
