All this crap stoner vrs vale. This is how i see it. Stoner is an amazing rider you cant take that away from him, just a shame he doesnt have the likeability factor. Rossi is and always will be a great rider and loved for his personality. Ducati isnt working out wev all made descisions we regret, i just hope they sort it out and rossi can shove one up all those that have been doubting his ability, and get back up the front to give us some great racing like at laguna. Rossi, stoner, lorenzo, pedrosa all fighting for 1st thats great racing

Let's put a spin on this. I hypothesize that Ducati and Rossi talked after he vented publicly, and they feared that the PR mess will get further out of hand, so they came to a mutual agreement. Rossi agrees to remain diplomatic when speaking to the media (and refrain from openly bad-mouthing the small company), but he won't stay after this season comes to a close. He will work a deal with another team/manufacturer, and will begin the 2013 season elsewhere. That is my prediction. Quote it!

If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to admit it. I'm not going anywhere!

Can someone high light me with few answer that's been puzzling me lately.

Rossi & JB took the all the credit for turning the 2004 M1 into a Winner and would exactly replicate it at the Ducati Camp with enormous money paid to them with adequate resources to make it happen. It was widely believed the current generation Pilots are no match for him. So far it has painted an ugly picture of controversy, denial and finger pointing without bearing any fruit's. His dismal performance's so far has elevated the past Ducati Pilot's achievements close to a fairy tale and even raises questions about his past achievements. Now not able to swallow the Pride Pill, his fan want him to remount on a Honda (or) a Yamaha, where he has burnt bridges to challenge the not so great current generation of Pilots.

When Yamaha lost the sponsorship in spite of bagging the 2010 Title, the Yellow Brigade kept saying it would have not happened if Rossi were still with them. Further, accusing Yamaha of losing their

.... Contd

When Yamaha lost the sponsorship in spite of bagging the 2010 Title, the Yellow Brigade kept saying it would have not happened if Rossi were still with them. Further, accusing Yamaha of losing their Racing Pedigree and totally to lose it forever due to the absence of sponsorship along with Rossi & JB input. In fact, Yamaha have come back very strong challenging the Honda's with their 2012 M/C even without a major sponsor under JL's input when people claim the current bike's have nothing to do with the past ones as thing move on especially they are 1000's now.

Cheers - TZ750.

Vale, I can't speak from all Russian fans but I hearfully wish you luck! And that's true the fans (not only in Russia I guess) have true respect for what you've done and what you do now. Only the greatest and strongest can make luck turn face at them!

9 world victories and 105 wins is a credit to anyone.
Stoner has 2 worlds and is looking for a third
They are all great riders and champions but every champion has there period of winning.
I am a rossi fan through and through but I do not think he will win a race on the ducati because he has had his time.
Stoner can ride anything, lorenzoe is mega even crutchlow beat rossi by miles
agree or disagree rossi cannot ride a non Japanese bike
He has spent a whole year proving that and failed big time
