He left Ducati coz he knew he'll never win another championship with Ducati. In other hand, Rossi knew what kind of bike Ducati was and had enough courage to take the risk and join Ducati. Now they're getting better and better. He'll definitely win at least one championship with ducati if he stays let say as long as Casey did!!!

The truth is that after only the very first race following Casey's retirement, he will not be missed ro even thought of anymore. He will become mainly a historical conversation piece. The sands will shift and settle around the new aliens duking for wins. Thats just simply how it goes down. The same thing would happen if it was Rossi leaving. Yes, there would be mourning, wailing and sorrow for a while, but then the show would coalesce around the new dogs on the block and move forward. I first thought Motogp was finished with Wayne Rayne's accident. Later, that it would not survice the departure of Doohan. Well see what happened! So Casey, enjoy it while it lasts. For, when you leave, the curtain will truly come down on your chapter, yet a new script will for sure be written with other hounds dominating the stage!

@Sam: not true, in his last race with the Desmocedici he said "I feel like I can win anywhere with this bike",
his words not mine....

And then Rossi picked it up. Different riding styles, for sure. but Stoner was happy with the Ducati, carbon-fiber included.

@Sam
Good post as concerns #46. I truly do not begrudge Casey his accomplishments on the Ducati. However, considering what a dog it was when #46 climbed on it, it will be Rossi's, Jeremy's Burgess's and Ducati's greatest triumph if they were eventually to mould the red monster into a sweet winner. If Valentino was then to take even only one other championship on it, it would in my estimation count for much more than all the other 9 put together. I have the feeling that were HRC to offer Casey's ride to him next year, it is ambition which would prevent Rossi from ever leaving Ducati.
