Dbb....Last season, Rossi had better kit than Hayden and got to use all the best bits first, yet he still only just beat Hayden. Qatar was the first time either of them has raced the GP12, as its its supposidely 95% new, then Hyaden has no advantage there.

People keep bangin on about how Rossi is a 9 time champ blah blah, yet he only just managed to beat Nicky after getting everything he wants!?!?!

If you asked a total newbie to the sport who was better, rossi or hayden, showed them the standings last year anbd the results so far this year, they'd probably say their about the same. And thats just where i put them right now.

Ill ask you this Dbb, what has Rossi done to show he is so much better than Hayden in the last 1.1 seasons?

All he's shown me is that he crashes much more than Hayden, and does a hell of a lot more moaning in the process. Just get on with it and race!

@ Tricky P - Rossi had better kit than Hayden???? Really???? Was he not testing new equipment (not necessarily better) to HELP create what Hayden now describes as the fastest Ducati he's ever ridden??? What did Hayden do in this field other than tow the line

Again, it was Rossi's first season on Ducati. Hayden has been on it since 2009. Hayden should have done better, but didn't

Rossi binned it trying to move up the field. Not only that, he binned it ALOT and STILL finished above Hayden. Hayden SHOULD have therefore finished above Rossi, but didn't. Because he is happy enough in sixth.

I also however agree with you. Someone with a very narrow view point would probably think Rossi and Hayden were similar, Using YOUR logic, does that mean Pedrosa should be number one rider in Honda??

DB8 of course its the fastest duacti he's ever ridden, its a 1000cc! Its going to be the fastest!

The point is, Rossi has had everything thrown at him for the last 18 months and he is still struggling. He had all the new bits last year whilst Hayden was left to do what he could with the crumbs. So for Rossi to only just eat him is totally appauling, yet you still think he deserves the number 1 spot? Why is this? Please explain this as i think you might be being blinded by the yellow with your opinion here.

I wonder what would happen to Lorenzo or Stoner if they went to Ducati and was fighting with Hayden for 6th and 7th? P45 springs to mind. If the cap fits.

But more importantly, it WOULDNT HAPPEN because they have TRUE talent, not plastic talent thats been masked with the best kit and special tyres and god knows what other hush hush bits over the years.

why does rossi deserve the number one spot in Ducati? because he finished above Hayden last year and is a much bigger figure in Moto GP than Hayden

1000ccs are faster? 1000ccs have proved slower so far this year.They will speed up though.

Rossi is plastic because he was on the best kit? Lorenzo and Stoner were also on the best kit in 2010 and 2011. 2007 for stoner is maybe an exception, but Stoner is an exceptional rider.

Trick P, I am not sure if you are trolling or just puting your opinion forward but if you are serious, do you watch Motogp ? Stoner left Ducati because the bike would'nt let put a consistent season together for another chance of the title. Lorenzo was offered double Stoners pay packet to ride the bike and he refused. Ducati are paying Rossi 15 million (thats three times any other rider) and he can't even ride it as Stoner did (except for the crashes LOL). If Rossi can't get the bike to work then what championship contender is ever going to want to ride the Ducati. ( All respect to Hayden but he's not a contender) It make or break for Ducati and I hope the bike gets sorted but its not looking good.

"All respect to Hayden but he's not a contender"

How can you say he isn't? He has a title just like Rossi, Jorge and Stoner. Anyone else on the grid with a title?

Answer?: NO!

He's a contender when he isn't treated like a second class rider.

@ Brian C - Lorenzo won a championship when he was treated like a second class rider.

I'm trying to as reasonable as possible, as you dont seem to be a troll like the other ones, but I really dont see your point.

Do you think Rossi should be demoted for losing his temper and Hayden should be promoted for doing what he's told? I disagree. Rossi deserves a kick up the ****, but he is still better than Hayden, even though I really do like Hayden too. In fact, I don't think I dislike any of riders. Except De Puniet. But that's just jealousy.
