"Afraid so Dave. Rossis championships now have a huge question mark over them. Best bike, special tyres made just for Rossi and he won. Put him in a competitive environment and he folds lapping 2 seconds a lap off the pace whilst being flogged silly by his teammates."

Stoners Ducati championship now has a huge question mark over it. Best bike, special tyres made just for Ducati and he won.

Stoners Honda championship now has a huge question mark over it. Put him in a competitive environment and hes behind his teammate & Jlo until injury takes care of Pedro then battling with Jlo until injury takes care of that.

Trying to keep up with his team mate in Germany showed what hes made of.

Leading team mate in points = flogged silly, what does trailing team mate in points = ???

A lot of people convinced that Audi are going to spend millions turning this bike around. German companies are not well known for building companies up, more for either killing the competition/asset stripping or getting the technology. Anyone thought desmodronics might be in their mind? Ducati are still the only ones using it effectively.

They are just trying to wind up the Rossi fans.

Its not possible to logically argue that Hayden is doing a better job than Rossi. Rossi has had more podiums and more points since he joined ducati.

Ducati should take a 2/3rds of that and pay off some Yamaha/Honda engineers to come in house and show Ducati how its done. I think Ducati+Vale could be very good if two things happen,

No they should find that sum again (not deduct it from Rossi), publicly admit that they have ignored many riders and team bosses GOOD advice (not just Rossi and Burgess), publicly apologise for the fact that their only championship was won on completely different technology than what they have been developing for many seasons, then listen to team Rossi and win their 2nd title, after all, why sign a multiple champion and then ignore what his team says? pure arrogance and stupidity Ducati...

Well Rossi have claimed that Ducati havnt done what he wants, and Ducati could never correct him.

Also for claims he would a title on a Yamaha, he only one two races in 2010, sure he had to recover from Mugello (no small feet granted), but for most of the season, he wasnt in the hunt (including before the accident),

On a Yamaha or Honda, he could probably podium the thing pretty often (esp after Stoner leaves), win the odd race, but a tile, doubt it

5 points behind in the championship after 3 races means that Rossi wasnt in the title hunt?

What do you think about Stoner being 18 points behind his teammate after half a season.

Yeah good on ya Terv, as for claims he took the yamaha dog and won not only the 2004 title, but... they listened to him and created a completely different bike for 2004 and they did it in a few months, 2 years of Ducati arrogance has netted them 2 podiums, I wonder if there some kind of pattern emerging here...
