What I do know is that Rossi hasn't an idea in the world on how to develop a Motogp bike. Over the years the factories handed him an unbeatable bike year after year to win championships. He goes to a lesser factory team and he has done squat in the development area. For the past 2 years he is nothing more than a mid field racer...he qualifies around 9th-10th and he crosses the line around 7th-8th...that's poor. You might say, "It's the tires or it's the engine, or it's the brakes or it's the chatter...yeah, yeah, yeah." It's always excuse time Monday mornings with Rossi. Interestingly, Rossi crashed just as he was about to be lapped. Another thing I do know is Rossi has taken Ducati out to a long lunch, and boy, has it cost them some.

Understand, if you can, moto gp bikes are different, and some riders "fit" in a balance better than others.

You said it Moto Guru, he Rossi doesn't fit the balance of the Ducati and if you can't see this your in denial! And Hayden was re-signed because they need to keep a USA rider on board to help with Ducati sales in the USA, and that came from commentator Darryl Beatie. It's time for Ducati to smell the roses and sign a rider who will fit the balance of this bike and factory, not change everything by request and have the bike go backwards.

had rossi switched the bike jumping on the Casey-identical ducati 2008,I bet he would have peed before the corkscrew.Marco Melandri knew it well what it felt like.LOL

Wow I am an imposter now. Hey you don't enjoy the Rossi BS fair enough, but to say that somehow Stoner doesn't crap on/whinge either is a stretch and very unAustralian, especially to say that he doesn't have a persecution complex as demonstrated by the large backlash on here due to his comments at the last round...

@tom horner,
mate if what you say is true (and it isnt) then Casey would have stayed at Ducati.
Truth is Ducati were very fast, but then the others caught up and, when Casey had chance to jump on a good bike he took it and good for him. I remember him saying something like the Ducati handling was like trying to ride a bucking horse.
Ducati have lost their way and now they are going to pay for it. The rumours are that Burgess will not stay another year there no matter what.
I am happy for Nicky but lets face it he's probably breathed a sigh of relief that he's got a ride for next year.

You're not the brightes apple from the tree are you?
(MOTO GURU) hahaha, you've just made my day.

i might not be the brightest one, but you ask me NOT to compare between GP8 and GP12. yeah, right! GP12 according to Hayden (NOT MY OWN PERSPECTIVE), as someone who has ridden both GP12 and GP9 (the closest version of GP8), is the BEST Ducati bike he has ridden.

surely if Rossi the development God had ridden the GP8 this year, he would of crapped himself before attacking the corkscrew at the first lap! lol
