Be patient, they did a good job yesterday... They are understanding the bike setup wise... He did his fast lap in the last lap and did only one! .4 sec of qually last year... The distance with the frontrunners is still around 1 sec... But to solve that problem it's waiting till laguna till they get the new engine... And god i hope it will be a good one! If the bike doesn't perform by then, then it's a lost cause! Then he'll go back to honda! Rossi and marquez in a full spec satellite honda team!

yea, Ducati seem a bit lost with what new bits to add to the bike and new set-up stratergies. I am not impressed by Jerry Burgess, I think rossi's crew chief could use a more " think outside the box" approach to bike setup but I doubt if that would even add half a second. fingers crossed they get better at laguna seca :)

I've noticed the rate of comments and general vitriol have gone down lately on Rossi stories. I'm sure we're getting a little "Rossi'd" out by now, but I also think we've also just given up on having much of an opinion anymore. It's too baffling a situation no matter what we read.

It's said a wet race evens things out when it comes to faster bikes etc. so watching Valentino's awesome ride in Le Mans proves he still has all his skill. Valentino even got the fastest time down the straight, so it is obvious it is still the cornering that is giving him most of the problems. Valentino excells in late braking and has exceptional corner speed, but on this Ducati, he cannot put this skill into action so loses out big style in an area where he often made up a lot of time. Obviously this is not the only problem Vale is having at Ducati, his masterfull talent is still there, he just cannot bring it to the fore on this thing as he knows he will end up lying in the dirt!! Next year will be a whole new episode in the life and times of a motorbike racing legend!!!!!

We want Ducati to improve to suit Rossi Style and see the consistent firework, within this year

To Rossi, Pls get out of Ducati. You didnt have success with dUCATI, Admit it Ducati is not suiting. Stop wasting time. It will only eat up your remaining topend career and bring no more than ongoing frustration and ultimately you will repent.

Get cracking with Honda or Yamaha. I'd say go back to Yamaha in place of ben spies. Fans want atlleast podium finishes, and i hope you want same too, does it matter that it comes again via Yamaha? Is proven a good combination lately. Exploit your strengths. You are not in your early 20s.
