@yoshi

i guess you have never been in a leg, shoulder braking incident at 200+ kmph now have you ??? you ask stoner how much he is ready to risk after an incident like yesterday and he will tell you the answer...the thing is, as you grow older, your health becomes dearer..ask that to any 30+ rider...getting back from injuries is not that easy...and you expect rossi to risk everything that too for a max position of say 5th....

@desmorosso

well i dont know what you have been reading but according to what i last read...

rossi said sorry to his fans for dissapointing them

he said HE never managed to adapt to the ducati

he said the team and the guys at ducati tried very hard

and he said HE will have to check his current level next year on the Yamaha

so where does that blame the ducati

I don't understand how Yamaha tell Spies if he's not going to give 100% don't turm up but then they go and sign Rossi who hasn't given 100% for the last 2 years.

They have paid a lot of money for someone that WAS great but is now a HAS BEEN

to make you understand, yamaha signed rossi because it is very clear that rossi is the best rider to partner lorenzo on an m1.
m1 has been the best bike yet spies could not get it to the podium. that's why he will be replaced by rossi to see the m1 bikes up the podium.

Ducati must be absolutely spewing. They will surely be launching a lawsuit now for fraud and deception. Getting $30 million and trundling around in 10th and being out qualified by a CRT is laughable.

Posted by 46 is the best LOL He is going to Yahama because he brings a title sponser with him and has accepted he is the number 2 rider after lorenzo . The one thing he has learned by the ducati move was how good stoner is and how he cannot adapt to different bike set up put him back on Yam or honda he be back at front end again

How come the tyre sliding on a Ducati become a problem to 7 time WC?

Wouldn't that Rossi move to Ducati because he want to slide like Stoner?

Rossi still can't get over the Philip Islands 2009 defeat when Stoner powerslide his Ducati beautifully and he didn't have the answer despite riding the best bike.

As far as I remembered Stoner slide his tyre on Ducati all the time.

Was it not Rossi et al that said it would be impossible to tell the potential of the Ducati because Stoner was'nt riding it hard enough ?
What Rossi fans have to remember is that when JLo has a bad race, he comes second. Even Rossi in his pomp did'nt have that kind of consistency.

Expect nothing even close to effort for the rest of the season. Sad to see it end this way but I believe they all just want these last few races to get by and without incident, on both parts.
