Damon, Stoner won his WC for Ducati on the trellis framed bike. He performed well in the first half of 2008 on the same chassis configuration.

His results started to slide, year by year, when the CF chassis was introduced. I think this was the same year his health issues surfaced. It seems that F1 technology doesn't work so well on two wheels.

Rossi struggled like mad with the CF chassis and the front end used to wash out unexpectedly. Dumping the CF chassis seems to have improved things but that is just one part of the puzzle...

ohk righto! so now the excuse is the other teams moved ahead while Ducati sat down in the corner twiddling their times?!?!? jeeepers christ you yellow tinted Florence fans are outrageous. You can come up with any excuse under the sun given the time. IT doesnt matter about like for like conditions..have you stopped to think that maybe the reason for the improved times by Florence was because of development by Ducati?! your comparing year after year. Stoner on 2010 vs Rossi 2011. Of course the bike will have improved since Rossi sat on it after Stoners departure. Well i would hope so anyway. What i want to know is how come he still isnt winning? despite rossis amazing lap times in comparison to stoner?

I seem to recall that when Val left Yamaha,a certain group of people stated that the bike would go backwards without his development input.
Can we put that argument to bed now.Jorge and the Yamaha are doing just fine.The further the season goes,the more likely Jorge will be to stay there.If Honda want to poach him,they will need to make him one hell of an offer.I thought that me may well go to replace Casey,but now i am not so sure!

Yep guilty as charged.

I dont know if he has put in a superb effort or not with development but he cirtainly has not stuffed it up at Yamaha.

To ozzy and rossi stoned

it doesnt matter if it was trellis or carbon frame. Stoner showed he can ride the bike in any configuration!! He won on the trellis, he won on the carbon, he won on Ducati Gp7,8,9,10 he won on the Honda Rc212v and the RC213v. so how many iterations of the Duc has Rossi gone through?!?! remember the time when it was Gp11.2 Gp11 Gp12.2 etc etc??! hmm we were all getting confused by the names at one point cos there was so many!! at one point there was so many changes to the bike midseason that it culminated in more changes than Stoner had in one year!! so lord almighty after all this time, why oh why has the eternal god Florence not even got one win on the Ducati!!! please oh please answer me that esteemed Florence fan?
quit trying to show that Rossi

Big Casey fan but it's hard not to be impressed by Jorge this season. He rides it like it's on rails. I thought the silly, contrived post race stunts were a thing of the past but I wont begrudge him after another rock solid race.

@Damon

Stoner smoked the opposition in 2007, no question. Why was he unable to do this in subsequent years.

Was it him or the bike?

If the Ducati was any good, a rider with Stoners skills would probably have another clutch of trophies for his lovely wife to dust around.

so funny to read all these slagging against cs. Its only 5th race so don't predict anything yet. Stoner won last yr championship with dnf in jerez. Hats off to jorge, dovi and cal. Gutted with spies, i hope he can bounce back in silverstone. I see ducati getting better which is good. For sure this year will be a tight one till the end. great ride from ellison. alvaro was very consistent. rossi is doing good.

Mr teeth has absolutely NO excuses today other than he was outclassed by the 3 "almost 4 with cal" better riders. Simple as that!! Bring it jlo, u rock.
Tyre choice this
Armpump that
Lactose intolerant the other
Blah blah
Enough already FFS!
