The duc is not good.enough to win races, and both nicky and rossi are doin the best thay can. However I do think that rossi doesnt go right on the edge with the duc as he sees no point in crashin for the sake of 6th. If he finishes the race he will end up with more points and stops him self from dropping down on the points even more. Hes gonna ride out the rest of the yea then wait for yamaha to giv him an offer, and I bet they will, prob spis seat. Its always good to have rossi on your team as everyone knows and its very interesting to see lorenzo say he would like to have rossi back as a team mate. I think rossi will finish of with yamaha.

Oh come on... I get that you're all stoner lovers but lets be reasonable.

Stoner and Lorenzo are both excellent riders, but Stoner is the biggest moaner even when he wins, with more arrogance than talent. Lorenzo has talent but he's chronically emabrrassing... even when him wins its cringy.

Pedrosa has the worst small man sydrome I've ever come across. And to top it off they're all in love with each other!

Marco Simoncelli had personality, Rossi has personality, Crutchlow has personality. And they would race each other.

You can all get your knickers in a twist if you like, but in my opinion MOTOGP has lost something.

Nice comments all of you guys... They are riding a 90 percent new bike... It takes time to get a really good bike... I think they now have a decent package to work with, with some little adjustements they will get the front-end feeling they want... Can't wait to see what happens at estoril especially testing on monday... If i read the rossi comments well, he's quite happy with the hayden set-up... Hope they make progress... And indeed he counted to much on changing the bike into a jap bike... It's italian and stubborn like hell... He needs to adapt his style, i think he realized it this weekend... Hope to see him improving putting in some decent results.... Maybe some podium finishes this years and being a title contender next year on a DUC!

Rossi to Yamaha next year along side Lorenzo ?
Lorenzo has been asked if he would accept Rossi back next year, he said yes.
Yamaha are in their 2nd year without a major sponsor
Spies is not doing the job & has been publicly critisized by Lin Jarvis.
Dorna need Rossi to start winning again. Lorenzo & Stoner are not fighting each other. MotoGP needs Rozzi back at the front battling for a win , even if he gets beaten, he will still fight to the end
Think I'll stick with Moto2 & Moto3 at the minute, as the younger riders still know how to "race"

A glimmer of hope is better than no hope at all, which has been the case.Now it looks like the man us willing to compromise with the machine so let's go from here...
A lot of comparing Nick and Val going on please remember (taking nothing from Nicky) Nicky has only 1 c'ship under his belt and got it on consistency not wins...How long has he been with Ducati to not bring home the wins...if anyone is a test rider it is he and it's a good move to work with his set up so Rossi can bring home the points...both Yamaha and Honda used Rossi's set for their new riders. Why not the Duc and Rossi

Livio Suppo, what an idiot, after years of hatred for Vale I clearly remember him as saying at the end of 2010:

"In the end, we did very well, and it's not a shame having been beaten by the strongest rider in history".

@ lol
Stoner has won the championship twice and had machinery advantage both times,as did Lorenzo when he won in 2010, and that is not a criticism it's plain fact. You can say the same about most of the champions in the last 10 years and it is unlikely to change in the near future.
