The ducati is too slow and extremely unpredictable settings that work with other bikes have illogical effects and cannot be deciphered by the engineers or vale. I am a massive Rossi fan but even I have to concede that he's not going to risk crashing for 6th place so unless the weather conditions are favourable for the ducati he will happily potter round in 10 th place and play the martyr at the end of the race. The doors are now closing for a factory ride for next year Marquez and pedrosa Honda is fact chances of yamaha with cal and dove gets more unlikely by the day and either manufacturer won't give a satellite team the parts for Valentino to beat them so unless ducati completely turn around the worst motogp bike of our era vale is homeless!!!

I think Rossi could make podiums and compete for wins on a Tech 3 Yamaha or the Gresini Honda that Bautista's on. Whether such a spot would open for him is another question. But that would be some good racing, no?

Here is the skinny for all you to read:

Stoner is retiring because HONDA has had an offer to Valentino on the table. And Stoner would be Number 2 according to Honda.

As a result, Stoner has announced his retirement. He obviously felt Honda thought of him as a less important than the 9 time world champion. Obviously hurt, and felt betrayed. I am not joking. You will see this happen. Valentino has an offer on the Table from Repsol Honda, and has had it 1 week before Stoners public announcement of retirement. Valentino has not answer it, this is why Honda needs a backup and verbally asked other riders. So far, nothing from Valentino's Camp.

Read it and weap.
