Amazing that a guys who is in motogp for soooooooo long and still want to compeet and win and be on a podium.

And when he will be with yamaha again he will give it his best and be on the podium.

But for me its just great the passion is still there, even after 2 disaster years, maybe hi's passion for winning is even bigger then befor.

what i dont understand is........ I DONT KNOW HIS NAME BUT HE WILL RETIRE AFTER THIS YEAR.
no passion

If a rider is struggling to concentrate, they are a danger to themselves and others on track - if he's having that trouble and "money is not very important" then it is time to retire.

just hand the keys of that M1 over to Rossi Ben, he will show you how to ride it, and win on it 46 times.

One of the best bikes out there on the grid and Ben is doing nothing with it.

Concerning a previous comment about the utility of Audi experience to solve Ducati, I must say that I agree that Audi's knowledge will not bring anything. ZERO. Hopefully, Audi won't even try to meddle into Ducati's Motogp team... The history of bike racing is full of attempts of bringing F1 technology, tech guys to motorcycles always with very poor results.

But the same guy writes - as an example - that BMW's initial troubles with SBK were due to them being a car maker!? BMW makes bikes for ages! True, though, that there speciallity was tourers but don't compare BMW's knowledge of bikes with Audi's (which is zero)

Simple fact is Yamaha would not make any sort of offer to 46 if they thought he couldnt get back on the M1 and start winning. He was able to win injured in his last year there, He will be able to win again next year.

Last I looked Hayden claimed it was the fastest Ducati he's ridden, not the best.

To say that Ducati hasn't given what Rossi has asked for is a joke. How many changes has that bike been through?

It wasn't but a couple of months back where Rossi stated "I don't know what the bike needs".

What's even better was the Burgess interview where he told Rossi we are getting a better bike than in 2004. How's that working out?

It's sad to see a champion fall from grace in the manner in which he has, but on the same note he's getting everything he's earned.
