@ dodolibret

Agree with you for the race, battle, show.
But let's give some credit to Jorge, if not for the show, at least for a very well thought race and for keeping the championship alive :).

Isn't a engine configuration and firing order of Honda give its drive out the corner (in the dry) the same reason for the wheel spin in the wet, while the Yamaha and ducati are the reverse, that is the lack of drive (c.f. to Honda) gives it advantage in the wet.
But hey, I've probably over simplified it, can some tell me if the Yamaha has the big bang firing order?

Hmmm, I honestly think that Yamaha is good on the wet because it's a perfectly smooth bike with great power delivery.

About Ducati, the real question is: is that really better in the wet? I'm not so sure honestly, look at the other Ducs, more or less same performances as on the dry.

It's just Rossi who's up there.
I guess it's just the fact that water is some sort of "imperfect equalizer" (imperfect as some riders just don't get along with it) and Rossi's class come out unhindered by the bikes' issues.

@jimmy jimmy, I don't think ich mentioned casey at all, so what does your point have to do with anything?

Oh, you're just looking to have the same argument over and over again. Yeah, thats fun zzzzz
