@ wanadoit...Something you may not have noticed. The situation at the moment with the Ducati riders is that Hector has busted himself, Nicky has busted himself, Karel is recovering from busting himself. Do you see any pattern?

Rossi will not develop the Ducati by joining them. He handed back a bike in one piece with, perhaps, some useful data.

This weekend has me wondering about Stoners comment "imagine how good that bike was if he wasn't even trying?". Has Valentino been able to achieve his results without much effort because if there is any truth to it, I can't see next years results changing a whole lot, Yamaha or not.

you're a tool,
So because you saw him take it easy through a corner
where his team mate highsided and was knocked out, the same corner where Stoner highsided and broke his ankle you call him a disgrace??

so you would rather see these guys risk their lives and push to the very limits in QP on a track that is terrible for grib, just for your entertainment???

@ I watched Nicky thrashing the bike and when the bike let go he went flying through the air, thumping to the ground and then lying on the tarmac unconscious. Vale on the same corner grabbed the bike when it bit and rode off...hopeless, wasn't even on the gas. I give up on you man! And I'm sick of the excuses.

so you would of rather see him laying in the hospital bed next to NIcky?

harsh comments specially comeing from someone watching the race on a television, would be a differnt story if you were out there racing

Like I said, Ducati should have saved face and sacked him. We'll see some proper tantrums next year when Lorenzo bloodies his nose. Wonder who/what he'll blame then?

bwhahahahahah yer ok mate, where will you be posting
next year when he is having awesome battles with Jlo
like we have seen before.

from someone in 2010 who was on the podium in the last 3 races, then steps onto the duc a week later and is 1sec slower from the start. you dont lose that talent in 1 week.

he will be back to his old self once on his M1.
the only commments the haters will be able to come up with when this happens is about his hard time with Ducati.

@ Codger
Com' on codger, What pattern? The only pattern i see and lots of other people here is that everyone else except Vale is trying their best to achieve a good result. Take Casey for example: He crashed, broke his ankle and the next day he was riding again, and RISKING something more worst for his health, although he is RETIRING this year. This is called true passion and pure professionalism by him.
I respect him.

oh so when Stoner or Jlo stop the battle and settle for just points its ok and smart racing,

but When Vale settles to finish safe on a shocking track the haters start their assult.
