Mr. Poddy,

A few posts back. I dont know if i should even lower myself to answer your post.

We all know very well vale needs(ordered to/advised to)to say positive things. Even if it kills him. He cannot bad-mouth ducati anymore. He knows next years ride is at stake and cannot risk anything. You know da*m well he's not happy with 7th, heck you know he wouldn't be happy with 2nd either. It's remarks like these that make kringe and ask under what rock you crawled out of. Did you start watching moto Gp a couple of weeks ago? We're talking about the guy that schooled every single one of these guys. Every single one. I hope you have the oportunity to talk to a moto gp rider and ask who they fear on a good bike. The answer is always the same. You know...

Didn't you know that burgess wife is or was very ill, she got diagnosed with brestcancer... Burgess signed a contract with rossi for two years with ducati... I am sure he will retire after this year to stay closer to his family... Rossi is surely capable of going to tech 3 with a couple of his mechanics on his payrole... I wouldn't see how that can be a problem with his earnings!? But my guess is he'll stay with ducati and surely they will figure out what is wrong with the gp12.... They aren't in between prototypes anymore... They will finetune it, you can be damn sure...

When older riders are coming to the end of their season contract they "leak" the idea of retirement to try and secure a better deal for the next year. How would the Telegraph know? Either way, Rossi is getting older and would probably struggle to be consistent even if on the same machinery as Stoner & Lorenzo. It would be good to see him on a Honda though.

That's just typical. Stoner gets Bridgestones, Rossi gets Bridgestones. Stoner gets a Ducati, Rossi gets a Ducati. Stoner retires, Rossi retires. He's such a bandwagon jumper.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, I haven't read all the reports, but....
Massa is out of contract next year, Ferrari don't need a driver as good as Alonso, but someone who is good enough to score points etc.
As we all know, sport at the top level is about psychology, and Rossi would be quick enough. He proved that in 2006 testing alongside Schumacher.

Seriously though, I wouldn't believe half of the crap these dailies write.
F1 used to be covered in the Sun by a guy call stan Piecha, who also covered fishing!!! FGS!!!!

Hell, take a look a Doohan and Fogarty, both still winning their respective championships at 33/34 and only prevented winning more due to injury. Rossi is working toward his next championship, believe me!

Funny you're all talking like he sucks all of a sudden over the course of like 4 months before racing for Ducati.

No he just doesn't like the Ducati, put him on the Tech 3 Yamaha and watch him win again.
