very shame that rossi cannot perform compare with nicky
which they r same bike...maybe rossi cannot master the duc or not suit his riding style ??? tired for heard him complain front end not feeling bah bah bah
as you fan i give u advice...don't use your feeling anymore u must control the bike not the bike control u if u always have this mind set u will fail forever... must 100% control your bike that sure it will fight with stoner and jorge cos they control the bike well and seldom heard them say FEELING here and there....

My prediction is that ( if anyone is interested )VR46 will not lose the front end all season.(If he lasts the season that is )Crusing around in midfield will be a safe year for him and his last alone with his loudmouth crew.Thats a lot of money Ducati has paid out for a CRT bike it seems

LMAO at all the keyboard racers telling rossi hes finished . Barbera only did well cause he tailgated Lorenzo most the session .theyve all got the new tyres to deal with & some got it spot on Ref the Yamahas Top job Cruchlow. AS for Rossi hes suiting himself setting the bike to what hes happy with .He always finishes better than quallifing. He kept the team quiet & press abourt the Yamaha M1 going well when he left honda & made history .I dont think this is a repeat of that But hoping hes doing a bit of sand bagging & reading all the Haters coments

I'm an unconditional fan of Vale, but at this point I really think he has to stop looking for the Yamaha-Honda feeling and balls out that Duke. Leaving Yamaha was in my opinion the worst mistake he ever made. Hope for a miracle now. Go Vale.......

Be strong Rossi. There are ups n downs in life. Like what happened to all others including Gibernau n Stoner, savvy? Hope this makes u a better man. Only then will u be a better rider. Its not over yet. U can win all the time, but it cant rain all d time either. Perhaps make peace with Stoner n learn how to climb out of a rut. And Duc tricks too?

Strange how some of you approach this on this forum. You want to criticise the rider ability rather than a factual assessment or viewpoint. Lets be honest with ourselves none of us could do what those 21 lads do. The rider, Burgess, the riders pit team and Ducati are on a new development cycle with another new chassis, engine combination which will take time to gel. They have not had that time, money or resources to invest in the new concept like they did in 2004 and crucially had little time to test. That is the difference between now and the Rossi Honda Yamaha years. As good as Stoner and Lorenzo are they, like Rossi before them, are on the best machinery on the grid and the combination of talent and pinnacle engineering puts them at the top of the sheets. Take any part of that simple recipe away and the effect is what you see before you with Rossi. Riders win championships because of the combination of talent and having the best bike at any given point in time. Stoner never won a ch

Continued.......Stoner never won a championship again for Ducati because the bike was simply not up to it. Nothing to do with his abilities. Ducati and Rossi have taken a bold decision and in time they will benefit and win races like Stoner did for Ducati post 2007. Last years bike was a dog but its way to early to make judgement and i think we need to get the first four races out of the way before condemning the guy and his abilities.
