At this stage, what Rossi is going to do in 2013 has become more interesting than what he's going to do for the rest of 2012. Wherever he goes, his Ducati pay cheques will be a distant memory.

Give back to God what belongs to God and to caesar what belongs to caesar.
Don't be stupid,in business they know well why they give you every penny.
If lorenzo deserves five,it is because it is his level.same for stoner.and if rossi deserves twenty million dollars,it means the two other guys didn't reach his level,in fact in motorbike sport he is the only alien.

Rossi is there because he is so much more than just a brilliant rider. He gives back more to the people who follow this sport than any other rider, ever. Everyone with any nonce at all knows that he is the biggest draw in this circus right now and he is the one that is owed most by the whole Moto GP world. Dorna have done their level best to screw it up but he has been the biggest factor in keeping people interested. You don't have to like him to know that it is true.

They are driving to get CRT across the grid to try and get the action better in the next couple of years as Dorna know that they will lose what is currently their cash cow.

As for Ducati the person who questioned if the guy writing the cheques is wondering what happened. No way, they have the biggest draw on their bike and they are getting more column inches with a bad bike than they had when Casey won a world championship on it. Make no mistake Mr Rossi is the biggest ticket on two wheels and there is no one on the hor

Who is wrong at the end of the day? us, Ducati or Rossi?
So what if he is getting it, good on him, i think none of us here would complain if it was handed to us on a plate but it's not handed to him, he still has to work for it, result or no result and Ducati can let him go as quickly has he lets them go! Put in perspective basketball players like LeBron James do they deserve the stupid money they get for bouncing a ball... I don't think so, but they get it.
