When you're having a tough weekend maybe you should try out Nicky's settings again. It worked before and he was able to walk away from you quite easily toady.

Dont know what audi can do. Audi is not known for any success in recent years except for Le Manns. I'm not sure why Valentino is not mentioning his decision but I'm guessing it's the paycut from 14-17 million euro to 3-4 million offered by Yamaha. By the way, ducati's new contract has a huge paycut as well. Also Yamaha has not guaranteed Valentino's crew being re-hired into yamaha. This would mean Valentino would have to bring in a good sponsor to make up for the paycut and pay crew as well, this is valentino's hold up at the moment.
I will say this : Spies left Yamaha due to the wilingness of yamaha to wait for Valentino's decision, a verbal offer was made to Valentino weeks before Spies anouncement. Yamaha had stalled all negotiations with Spies due to their hope of Valentino returning to fill the spot with $ponsorship.

Stoner: his motor pace was amazing
Lorenzo : lately he is so wise
Pedrito: need more Luck
Rossi : good to be developer, seen on his bike but not for racer on his condition today(already old), ducati need more than racing technics but GUT also,

If Ducati was smart, (still questionable) they would hire Andrea Ianone and develop a bike arround a young rider. Then again... We're talking about the same factory that still has not produced the changes Rossi asked of them 2 months ago..(that is not a joke)

Winning isn't everything, but it's the only thing that counts.

Rossi kissed the corkscrew again like he did back in 2008 at the victory lap. only this time during the race.

so, is it true what people say that in 2008 casey went to a gunfight against rossi only with a dagger in hand? and now when it is reversed, we all see the difference

@ lightspeed

You're not the brightes apple from the tree are you? Two different bikes. Can't compare. Comparing at this point is ridicuolous. Valentino was very lucky to walk away unharmed by this. Ducati's weakness is still ever present and he's pointed this out from day 1. Front feel is non existant. Ducati needs a complete 360 degree change over. Audi needs a new GM at ducati, not hard headed, someone who takes charge and readily able to produce the changes that are needed at this level. Quite embarrasing ducati has not done so. Del Torchio needs to resign, and audi needs to name a new GM. Start fresh. If not retire from GP.
