Interestingly, it was clear that the Ducati was running much wider lines than the Yamaha even in the wet. Perhaps its competitiveness in the rain is therefore due to being relatively "long and low" compared to the Japanese competition. It's not transferring weight as well and therefore unable to hook up out of bends without sliding too much in the dry, so using up the rear tyre earlier, but the lower CoG could give more confidence in the wet when the reduced grip level is determined more by the tyre than weight transfer and is therefore similar for everyone.

Rossi is ruining his reputation, giving up his titles and his championship mark with a Bike that not even his crew can understand, and with an idiotic and egomaniac factory that doesnt listen to anybody and they release the bike THEY want in a very long time. Almost year and a half for an engine that Rossi is begging from the beginning (just in laguna seca hes gonna have that engine), and the engine is crap anyway.

Rossi, do yourself a favor, get a Yamaha or Honda seat if you can... or you will be remembered as the poor guy that could never ride that Crap, the Ducati.

I am a lifelong Rossi fan and even I have got the point where this situation is exhausting me!! The bike is awful just leave!!!!! Rossi is damaging his reputation we never get to see him on tv because he's so far back the sponsors will definitely feel the same just ride it back in to the garage and throw it on it's side and tell preziosi to shove it!!!! Show some passion vale!!! Riding around in 9th isn't you !!! Is it??!! I sincerely hope not!!!

Rossi is not ruining his reputation. He has already done that in the last season. This year he's plainly humiliating his own self. I haven't got a clue what's going in his mind right now. May be he's trying to prove that he can ride that Duke as fast as Stoner and, like Casey, he too can bring home titles on a bad-ass motorcycle. Sadly, too long in the tooth, this thought. Give-up, move on and agree to the fact that Stoner is a versatile racer and adapts to the bike quickly. I am no fan of yours but, your fans had had enough I think. As you say you race for your fans,move over to some satellite Honda or Yamaha, win some races, get on podiums, spray some champagne and end your stellar career on a high-cheery note...

Oh for gods sake will people stop bleating about how Ducati are to blame for this that and the other.

They've brought in more changes, including a complete re-design, and done more testing since Rossi joined them than in the entire four years that Stoner was with them. And are the Rossi supporters seriously suggesting that all this work was carried out with absolutely no reference at all to feedback or instructions given by Rossi and Burgess.

If the bike is THAT bad (which I don't actually think it is) then Rossi needs to take his share of the blame also.

Either way, he's not delivering what Ducati hired him for.
