"....being used to better effect by Abraham, Barabera and Hayden."
How do you work that out? The only reason that any of them finished in front of Rossi is because they didn't have to run off the track. His race pace was the same.
Abraham is a young kid on the way up, I hope he makes it. Hector's main aim is by hook or by crook to beat the Works riders. I'd like to see him on a better bike.
Nicky is just Nicky, he'll put in a stirling ride as long as they want him on their bike.
Rossi has to test and develop the bike during races. Pushing beyond the bikes limits and crashing won't achieve anything.

@ happy - Pure speculation! That's what you hope would be the case!! You have no idea really, it's just what you think, all in your head, in your dreams!! Casey would be struggling like hell, just the same as he did and the same as Valentino is doing!!

It was a dream for many to see Rossi on a Ducati and winning races.

But for now that is all it is A DREAM.

I would hate to see Rossi leave Moto GP with this losing team.

Lets get him back on a Honda............

So Rossi ain't no quitter? Bwahahaha. Show some respect, Mr. GOAT. Randy de Puniet, HE is not a quitter. You're just a guy who has always, until now, had luck on his side. Not my words: ask KR JR. Or ask Biaggi. Ask Stoner. Ask Lorenzo. Ask Gibernau. Ask anyone who knows what racing is all about. It's all about the combination of the team, the bike and the rider. Take one out and you're left with nothing. Quod erat demonstrandum, capice?

Stop embarrassing yourself. Get rid of all the electronics? yeah okay, then we'd have Casey win each race by 20 seconds... smart move.

And Rossi, get a grip and take some responsibility. You said after the Sepand test this bike was more than capable of being up the sharp end and that Ducati had done a great job ... now they supposedly 'ignored what you asked for' ... Don't make me laugh.

It's time to man up, because you are definetely not riding it hard enough. Oh and stop moaning about aggressive overtakes.. you big girl.
