Excuse after Excuse, 7th isnt much for a 7 time WC in MotoGP, Yesterday was a complete joke by Rossi...

Stoner took it easy to and even tho he is driving with his injury's he still get up to 4th at the end of the race....

If Rossi cant or is to afraid to push the Ducati to any kind of result, then what will happen when he jumps on his M1 and he cant or is to scared to push it.

If this is Rossi now then he wont do much better on an M1.

Maxiiumsproxx,

when you ride a bike and know if you push it to its limits you are going to fail hard, then why would you push it, the bike doesnt work for him.

the M1 does, he has faith in that bike, he knows he can push it and not have the same crap as the Ducati has.

Stoner took it easy did he?
im sure he would say different to that, he would of been
pushing as hard as he could whilst fighting with that pain.

If thats the case like it looks to be, why dont he just get off the bike and give it to someone who is willing to ride it?

Why dont Ducati do it just fire him, the only reason He is stil there is becuase of the Brand Name Rossi and that why he will be on the M1 next year nothing more nothing less..

Kinda retard to say he has faith in the M1 while he hasnt been riding one for 2 years...

By itself u cant ride a 100% when ur not fit even worse when u ride around criple, show how much he is willing to take just to get a proper result, unlike others....

Excuses excuses and winging that's all we hear from this bloke, like a guy said the other day, put somebody on it who will at least try. As they say all bad workmen blame their tools

the common question is why risk everything on a bike that isnt perfect?

because thats what he is being paid more than any other rider in history to do. No ifs or buts or 'you couldnt do better' etc we arent being paid to do better. he is.

its black and white. if he doesnt want to try or to ride round the issue then give ducati the percentage of his salary of the races he isnt riding and go sit on the beach for rest of season. He is only making himself look silly and the ducati look worse than it is by carrying on. Ducati need to move fast on this or it will effect them long term.

and if his head is so lost that he wont push then perhaps his time has sadly gone. it shouldnt of look at what biaggi, checa and bayliss have done at much older age.

Put another one in Rossi's bike that at least try??

Look at the other 3 Ducatis "triers"!!? Two went to the hospital trying and the other is coming back from there! Is that a bike that a experienced rider will "try" its limits already knowing that probably you'll end it up in the hospital? how many times did Rossi felt last season trying to go fast? He was falling almost every race weekend! The bike didn't change nothing from 2011 to 2012? Would keep falling and braking bones if you already know that if you push you'll fall??

I see a lot o people here with too much talk... behind the monitor! That's what I see
