When comes the reward?

You must earn it, Nicky is being paid peanuts compared with Rossi and is really trying, Rossi is getting 17 million Euros and is being owned by him.

The lap times tell the story.

Ducati being 1 sec off pole tells us its not a very good bike

Rossi being .8 sec off team mate says he is not riding very well

Stoner setting pole in 2010 and setting the lap record at the circuit in 2008 tells us that Ducati had developed a bike that worked very well at this circuit

The terrible performance of this GP12 version tells us that the new deevelopment direction is a step backwards.

Maybe more time should have been spent testing and rifining the bike before throwing new parts at it every round to make the rider comfortable enough to find the limit first. It really is no surprise they are so lost. Ducati added no new parts in 2010 and the bike was improving in the second half of the season as they found the limits and understood its strengths and weaknesses, that hasn't just stalled its going backwards fast.

I hope he does not re sign for them ducati, they really are useless, I'm staggered Hayden has re signed, even he is complaining about the distance to the front now.

Listening to lot's of things I'm picking up I would be amazed if rossi stays at Ducati.

There is 2 options

1, and this must be the best, re sign with Yamaha works team, this I believe has been discussed with all parties concerned & I think it's a done deal.

2, if it's not a done deal there is a place still available at satellite Honda team, now that is not bad as Rossi will be on a competitive bike.

We have to wait another 3-4 weeks I think before we all know for sure where Rossi is going, one thing for sure is he has 2 offers on the table.

i still dont know weather problem is with bike or some other reason..why the hell he is not getting the job done.
i think the incident that happend with marco has touched him and affected him to control his pushing limits,and as per my point of the way that incident happend he is not pushing to his maximum.
well i just think it but i really dont know the actual reason..
i just pray he does well tomorrow
go rossi go
we love you

"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?" @RSMick

Have you noticed how Audi have 'ruined' Bentley and Lamborghini? Both enjoying record sales and massive investment by the parent.... The Germans had desmo valves before WW2, so I doubt that's their objective. Could be they just want to revive the fortunes of another proud but under-resourced European brand.....
