@samas: i'm not smoking anything... Somebody needs to be optimistic about ducati... By 5 races into the season he'll have his new engine witch will solve the gravitational problems... Neither ducati nor rossi can offord this situation two years in a row... They will find a solution...

There is one difference... This time rossi is working on the bike... Casey couldn't devellop the ducati, that's why rossi is in this mess... Stoner is a very talented rider but that is where his talent stops... He's lucky the japs don't rely on his input to develop a bike... The engineers have years of experience themselves... You'll see.... With the GP12 rossi got his clear canvas he wanted last year... Now he can start working on the bike... In 2013 he will be a title contender...

Like i said stoner is a fantastic rider... He's fast but no brains i guess...And indeed, rossi's input, burgess analysis of the incoming data and preziosi will make the bike work eventually... Don't forget it took the japs over one year and 20 different types of chassis to build what they have now... The duc is 90 percent new... They'll get it sorted out..

And Freddy proves his total ignorance of the sport. For the upteenth time, Stoner NEVER had ANY new parts provided by Ducati after a season started. There was no development. But the fact is Stoner stepped off the bike and handed it to Rossi who went 2 seconds a lap slower than Stoner did a few days before. At the same test Stoner jumps onto the unmodified Honda and goes faster than anybody has ever done at the that track after only 63 laps. Rossi then has millions of doallars and hundreds of new parts for development and still can't get the thing to work.

That's my point, they are doing erverything for him... Honda allready had a good bike... Rossi stepped on a **** ducati not suited for his riding style... And that is what they are trying to fix... Melandi was a talented guy, he parked his duc more in the gravel than staying on track... The only thing stoner could come up with was drilling holes in the front of his bike to solve the understeer... That was a brilliant idea... And as i said, he can ride a bike like nobody else can... But nothing more... Rossi and his crew will rebuild the bike... And with rossi's talent and a good ducati we'll see some great races!

Everytime Crash post's something about KC it some how turns into Stoner Vs Rossi,If i was a Rossi Fan i'd be pretty quite until he at least can compete in the top 5 on a regular basis this season.Its not Stoners Fault Rossi is on a un-competive bike,He won on the Duc something Valentino hasn't done and remember They said they could fix the Ducati's problems and ended up having to build a new bike For Rossi.Im not a Stoner Fan but its gets tiring reading about how many championships Rossi has won in the past,Take the Rossi Blinders off and give Stoner the credit he deserves,He may not be nice but he's Damn Fast on any Bike!!

Just another Repsol press release without using CS real thoughts on how he'd rather be staying at home with his new family.

He's not a good guy no mater how much they try to portray him to be.
