Rossi went much faster on the Saturday morning, I think he gave up after having a wobble and watching 3 world champions (WSBK included for Spies) go down in the same corner.

If you watched him you will see he has lost his bottle so why not admit it and get out, all you yellow pants fans hoping for magic next year

@ Clackarelli

just answer two much top speed advantage did stoner have over any prototype in 2007 ???

and which tires did the Ducati use in 2007 ??

you will have your answers as to why i called ducati's 2007 bike the best bike....2008 we have a single tire manufacturer and we saw what happened...

see im not trying to start a rossi stoner argument....i respect stoner as much and i know what he could have done was he on a honda 2008 onwards

i just gave reasons as to why rossi isnt successful on the ducati and why hasnt he managed to develop it...

one more thing i just saw....

no. of laps in the 1.40's in qualifying : RDP has 1 while Rossi has 7.....3 guesses as to who will be more consistent in the race

Hold on Rossi, next year wil be different, maybe not for some people because they think suddely you have become a sertain tony elias and cant ride at all anymore,
im not expecting miracles now that you leave ducati.

Stoner said it takes pride to ride, and he got alot if pride from ducati, stoner got alot of money like rossi when riding for ducati, ducati listen alot to stoner, they believed the lactose was real etc. he realy got alot of pride in the years riding for ducati.
So just ride they bike as hard as ducati works for you.
And like stoner said who was leading the develop.... ducati gave me everything i needed.
if he wasnt how can he say pride then.

He should have ridden it with more passion then he could have fallen off like Nicky and the passionate one.

@ Realist
Age Wisndom and a Zimmer frame.

Rossi just doesn't care anymore. Ducati should pay him out and get a new rider for the rest of the season. That would surely get the media into a frenzy as well as a number of fans.

Valentino Rossi has already stated he would not risk injury for 6th place and to be honest we have seen evidence of that all year, now with a new contract secure there is absolutely no point in risking injury at all. I am a huge Rossi fan but it's a little annoying to get my hopes up every week praying for rain then he Potters round in 8th it's so frustrating. I don't blame him for not pushing in my eyes he really can't do any wrong but another races seems like an awfully long time!!!!
