@ Timbo

I'll go one step further and predict VR will be on a well suited satellite bike. I agree that the electronics statement was unfounded.

@ an4rew

Not going to happen to finish 6th! He did that last year (i.e..trying everything including falling off), and it got him nowhere. Doing the same thing in 2012 is the definition of insanity!

The man just isn't even trying and Hayden is throwing a major spanner in his long list of excuses. All of this has dropped his stock considerably and he will not leave Ducati because this type of payday isn't going to be available to him. He earns nearly 1M per parade lap.
Rossi said in the beginning he's not willing to ride like Stoner but what he meant was he is not willing to ride like a racer and poor Ducati has to wait till next season to get one on that bike.

to say the leg break or shoulder injury or even the sad marco incident is the reason for vales woes is just ridiculous .
he got 3 pods and a win on the yam after coming back from the leg break , so that had no effect , the sad end of marco came at the end of last season , vales probs started the second he hopped on the duke at valencia 2010 , so marco isn't the reason either.
he has never looked like a 9 times champ since day 1 with ducati , clearly he can't ride it , its sad to some , but clear to most others.
without being mean i think he is scared of the ducati . has been since signing the deal.
knowing his rival stoner got most his praise on this bike hasn't helped either.
19 months of this is totally recking his mind.

Basically, Ducati helps Yamaha paying $30 Millions retirement fund to Rossi without getting anything in return.

Wow! How charitable Ducati has become...

Look guys lets get real if its a dry race tomorrow
Hayden aint going to take 3rd place. Rossi wants a bike he can win on and Ducati are not delivering the goods. Dont forget second place is the first loser
and its going to be Lorenzo Pedrosa or Stoner not a
Ducati with any one on it.

Listen stop with the Rossi bashing the man is a legend a lot a people are saying he had a bike I tracks what were you watching between 97 2010. Ok it's obvious the Ducati project is a disaster plain and simple for all parties(jb & crew). Rossi has always been a rider how relied on corner entry and exit speed that's why it worked so well .look if he sees the year out with Ducati it will be a miracle . He will be back on a Yamaha with big packing maybe even as big as coca a cola if you believe everything u hear. Man is a 9 time world champ so shut up with I told you so
