@ Jim

Says who? NOT according to JB and the Ducati team. It is "similar" to Hayden's setting, but it is not HIS setting. This setting was also used last year by Rossi, but he didn't prefer it (he wanted to try and exhaust some other ideas first). My point was, who's to say that Hayden's setting is even Hayden's? It could have been culminated from information provided by other Ducati riders as well.

Hayden finished closer to Lorenzo than Rossi did to Hayden. No amount of excuses or finger pointing will change that fact. Rossi is a great rider, but it is becoming quite clear that he is not as great as his silver-spooned history would have led us to believe.

Super Well said Realist.. Hi bealive him Rossi and he is just very special, most of the Legends have there reassons to walck away From Motogp, some of then crashes others friends died others because they tinck they can t anymore.. But Rossi is diferent he just loves this and i never walck way almost dont miss races he really bealieves on his feelings.. How would people like us know when he will be old for the sport?? if you not run away iven if you losse.. if there heart tell him to continuet is because he still can fight like allways.. Do ou tinck Rossi will have any problem on say, Man i allready made enaught and aim tired off this, i will leave Motogp.. do you tinck it will be hard for him??

blah blah blah blah, no grip here, chatter there, no power here blah blah. Shut up Rossi & just ride. fix front end fix chatter fix entry grip wooooh boo hooh. Cause eh the eh grip iz eh no good and eh the bike is not giving the right feedback and eh I tend to understeer & I arrive eh too fast en de corner. poof.

Hayden did finish 15 seconds ahead of rossi. So? what does that make him better? What was better, was the set up, tire choice and so on. Hayden is who he is, hes not getting any better, and hes not getting any worse. ANd he will be forgotten in a few years to come. He's not a championship contender,in ANY bike. He's a good Number 2. A side kick. Yes, Valentino's results are not up to par. It's difficult to ride knowing you are not going to make a difference for you or the team. The team (factory) has chosen to modify the bike to their findings and not listen entirely to Burgess and Rossi. This is what you get, a sub par performance.

Bring that Honda contract on for 2013. Wether It is the Repsol team, or a sattellite team with Factory-supported machinery, I'd like to see if Rossi can still do it on a Japanese bike.

@Realist and Liam48
Hang on there a minute,do you guys remember when stoner rode the Duc,when he was getting podiums,wins and poles and he was complaning about the Duc all you guys were saying stop moaning and just ride the bike,now rossi is on it and after spending who knows how many millions it is now all the bike and rossi has nothing to do with it, how does that work,a bit unfair don't you think? unless you guys are just fanboys but you keep telling us you are not so how about a bit of balance please.

Stoner retired, honda is on fire. the solution is hiring back valentino. Thats the only one solution if honda still want to be the champion in MotoGP. With Burgess and VR, honda will be invisible.
