Valentino needs to finish his career at the front of the grid not the back!
Im sure Rossi and JB would have had this Ducati sorted by now if Ducati had put the same financial and technical backing that Honda would of done.
I know Ducati havent got the same financial capability as Honda but from where im standing Ducati can put a lot more effort into motogp then they would
like us to think. Rossi and JB will be like kids in a sweet shop if they got a yamaha, it would only take them a weekend to find a setup not 2 years haha.
PS: Dont forget Rossi left Yamaha on very good terms.

Cal & Dovi have both proven themselves fast enough to take on the Factory Yam. But rememebr that Dovi has been in MotoGP for some years now, wheras Cal is in his second year. Dovi had a chance at Repsol and blew it so shuld stay at Tech3 for another year with Bradley Smith.

Rossi still has some work to do on the Ducati. I think he can pull that round still. Hayden should stay at Ducati for the same reason.

Noone else has proven good enough so far this season. So my vote goes to Cal.

It is POINTLESS doing a poll on this due to the vast number of Rossi fans! If Vale had finished every race between 12th and 17th this year, they would still say that he deserves an M1.

The fact remains that his performances have been below parr since he joined Ducati and based on this years performance there is no doubt in my mind who truly "deserves" a factory M1 next season and that is Mr Dovisioso!

4 podiums so far this season on a non factory bike says it all.

By results it should be Dovi as he has been the 2nd fastest Yamaha in the past few races.
BUT... He hasn't actually managed to win a dry race so I'd like to say Spies has more potential IF he can get himself sorted
I like Crutchlow for his achievements in WSS, but now he is just all talk
Rossi deserves to rot at Ducati for running away from a fight with Lorenzo.

Spies at factory team, Dovi at Tech3 with a factory spec machine, Crutchlow who knows where, Rossi at Ducati.

The fact is us Rossi fans know that Rossi still has what it takes to push Lorenzo to the limit, he is finishing between 12th and 17th because he is riding that dog of a bike know as the Ducati.
Also the reason he is finishing lower than Nicky is because Rossi is always testing something and why would he want to risk hurting him self to fight for 10th at his age!
