Until ducati sort that dog of a bike out rossi can put as much effort in as he likes,he still has the two works yamahas,the two works hondas,the tech 3 yams and the gresini hondas ahead of him every race because the bikes are superior in every way that matters.
They are faster,they have front end feel,they are lighter on those crappy bridgestone tyres,they have actual throttle response,etc etc.
And before all the stoner fanboys point out that casey could win on a duke lets not forget that duke bears as much resemblance to the current one as a pushbike does to a fireblade.
Would still love to see him start winning races on it,not flukey everyone else has fallen off or been abducted by aliens type wins but good solid theyve sorted the bike out ones.....go vale!!!!

Best finish "HA" Casey came off and Carl went off track,God help us all if he ever gets back up the front with all his childish antics that made MotoGP quite sad in the past. Be better for all if he would just go away.

@Yuri are you an idiot? Hayden is beating Rossi this year fact... WHAT? Where have you been living? Hayden has outqualified Rossi mostly this year so has Crutchlow at Tech 3 with Dovi but over there everyone is praising Dovi who usually comes out on top on race day as does Rossi with Hayden.

@Yuri you are the kind of people that I reffered to in my earlier comment, if you people want to learn and get more in depth in MotoGP follow people on Twitter like Neil Spalding, Matthew Birt & Alex Briggs (Rossi's mechanic) then you might have a good argument.

@ Yuri

The implication in your statement makes for easy deduction.

@ there there now

I'm not claiming that Rossi's Ducati performances are significantly better than Hayden's (despite Rossi achieving in 2 years what has taken Hayden 4+, and Hayden has never placed higher than 3rd). I am stating that Rossi is a more talented rider/racer however. I don't really care much about practice and qualifying because they often have very little effect on what materializes during a race.

@ Sam

Thank you!

@ there there now

No, Yuri threw some point average out there which isn't indicative of the two years that Nicky and Rossi rode the Ducati together.
