In this fast moving world Rossi will be forgotten by the end of next year and will just settle into the mid pack as a highly paid Cappa clone. Ducati and sponsor unless they buy a decent rider that has a go will sink further.

CRT riders next year will beat Rossi at qualifying on different occasions and probably races.

All depends on if he still thinks he's the best out there in 2013 when he's 34. Given his ego he probably will only to be roundly smacked by the rest of the field no matter what bike he's on.

You so want that to be true don't you? But I bet by the end of next year, Rossi will still have many more fans at any race circuit than any other rider. You haters will call them "sheep", but then you hate Rossi therefore you will never understand why he has, and will have at the end of 2012 more fans than any rider.

I think Rossi grew too big a head....

He is desperately trying to ride the Duc like an M1...

As someone pointed out, Casey rode that buckling, wobbling, weaving duc fast, and he rode it like a ducati should be ridden.

but Rossi is not does not want to ride it that way, his ego prevents him to try riding it that way.. years on the yamaha fed his bloated ego that he is the best and the bike must be adapted to him and ducati give him a superior bike....

too bad, I remember how rossi rode on the 2004 wobbling yamaha, when he knew that he has no machine advantage over the honda but what he has is a point to prove...

maybe because he knew what he is up against with the hondas and he knew how to beat them. but when he jumped to ducati, i was shocked how difficult he is and must have realized what a phenomenon Casey is for being able to compete with him on that comfy yamaha. now, maybe he is a broken man knowing how capable JLO is on the yamaha and how good Casey is, especially that Casey

I think it has finally dawned to him that he no longer has an ace up on his sleeve against them, and he do not know how to beat them with this ducati. Compare it with 2004 when he knew how to beat the hondas, now he has nothing.

he had success then, but it seems that he is not as committed now.

maybe Rossi thinks he is a better rider than Casey, thinking he can beat Lorenzo on that bike, because he knew Lorenzo surely can beat him on equal machinery, so jumping on Ducati thinking of he can get advantage to beat Lorenzo,because every body thinks that it is Lorenzo the man to beat on 2011,thinking Ducati migth be his savior, because Casey was competitive on that Ducati,as JB said he can fix it in 80 sec,but it was the opposite side that was.

"Interesting, given the amount of vile disgusting abuse hurled at all of Rossi's adversary's both by himself and his rabid fans......"

desmo, can you not possibly see the irony of your statement? Stoner fans like yourself are as bad, if not worse than the brain-dead Rossi fans that used to hurl abuse at Stoner. Both sides are pathetic keyboard warriors, including you and me.

"maybe Rossi thinks he is a better rider than Casey,"

Well he has 9 world titles compared to Casey's 2, so whilst it is in no doubt Casey Stoner rode that 800cc Ducati better than Rossi or anybody else, I don't think Rossi thinks he should be bowing down at Casey's feet just yet. Stoner has a long way to go yet...

@LAnski
Yes I agree with your comments On Rossi I saw an Interveiw with him at the Australian Gp He looked a beaten Man.... I felt a bit sad to see this

Being beaten By a team mate last year then riding a former competitors bike and not being able to be competative knowing another rider won 23 gps on it

I think appears to have shattered his allusions of Granduer perhaps he will return Yet sadly I think not
