Go have some fun, Rossi, race sbk and leave that pile of junk Ducati Motogp bike for someone desperate for a ride in the 'premier' class. When will Ducati figure out what Suzuki and Kawasaki did--negative publicity in Motogp is much worse than no publicity?

Seriously, this is just got to the point of ridculous now. If results dont change this i hope to god for Ducati and Rossis sake they end it.
Rossi should get a satellite deal with Gresini for a factory RC and Ducati should take on Barbera and Hayden. poor Hayden does everything that is asked of him and still doesnt get the recognition he deserves. I remember back in the day Honda pulled him from AMA and took a punt that he could win a championship and my word, didnt it work out handsomely beating Rossi to the title too.
So screw this fairytale marriage, make Hayden the number 1 rider next year, and because Ducati wont be paying outrages wages to burnt out star riders they can actually save some to help with development

Vale was quoted elsewhere as saying he wanted to just park the thing and come into the pits to retire, but the only reason he didn't was for his mechanics to collect more race data.

That's a pretty damning indictment of Ducati's lack of progress and a very telling indication of his state of mind right now.

Unless Ducati can start to make progress and build a bike he can get the best from, I should imagine the divorce papers will be with the lawyers sooner rather than later. It might be the best thing for both parties too.

@ the truth are yo fo real man? without ducati there will only be 2 manufacturers in the premiere class. despite being a small factory they still are dedicated to building prototype bikes. they even left sbk for to compete in motogp(and to pay rossi's salary). rossi and ben have no excuses whatsoever when their teammates don't complain as much. you can be a multiple champ but when the flag drops, the sh*t stops.

i Hate to say it but Rossi is not the rider i thought he was??... but Stoner on the other hand is much better than i wanted to believe.......MotoGP is not as exciting without Rossi in the top pack but i cant see this happening at Ducati...this is quite sad news.....

I agree, Rossi is not the best anymore, far from it. How he was able to stay on top for so long amazes me.

Casey Stoner is the best MotoGP rider, even with arm pumps and all, I don't like Lourenzo but he is not far behind.

Pedrosa may win a race or two. This season is worse due to the absence of Super Sic.

Dunno, Don-R and others. I recall something about straightening the Ducati out in 80 seconds. I read report not too long ago expressing Rossi's satisfaction with development. I saw Hayden ride it much better and place pretty well today. I saw the other Ducati guy do pretty well by riding hard. I saw Stoner ride the thing to championship status in the past. I also remember when Rossi proclaimed Pedrosa, Stoner, and Lorenzo as the future. Looks like the future is here.

its funny how people are quick to stab rossi in the back when things are going bad, stoner always said ducati didnt listen to him or give him the mods he asked for plus they wanted to send melandri to a shrink! and then theres all the other riders who done nothing with the bikes. know it seems they arent listening to rossi and what he says bike needs. after so many failures i believe its time to get rid of preziozi and his engineers and start afresh.
