re: "I for one actually hope to see Rossi winning races from the word go on the Lorenzo developed Yamaha"

you're going to have to transport yourself to another dimension for that. in the event you see vale winning races from the jump, he'll be doing so on the ROSSI developed Yamaha (meaning around him). it was the embodiment of "roadrace perfection" (if there is such a thing?) when lorenzo got his hands on it. nakamoto-san bows uncontrollably just THINKIN' about the M1's gestation.

re: "1) Refusing to shake Rossi's hand at Laguna Seca.
2) Climbing over a pit wall (Against rules) and standing on the grass in the middle of a race to 'clap' Rossi for knocking him off.
3) Refusing to accept Rossi's apology after the race and saying ''How's the shoulder''?
4) Claiming Rossi is the only person who complains about injury, when Stoner does this himself.
5) Claiming Rossi is a 'quitter' by leaving Ducati for Yamaha, when Stoner himself left Ducati for HRC.
6) Punching and shoving a rider on track. Highly dangerous."

i just write all this off as him simply being an aussie. things are different in oz.

@MotoGp1 Left Honda for Yamaha, left Yamaha for Ducati, Left Ducati for Yamaha...Late breaking moves have sent off Hayden, Stoner, Edwards, Nearly Lorenso his team mate at the time. Didn't take off his helmet when appologising to Stoner for taking him out, put up a wall to keep out his team mate, said Stoner didn't ride the Ducati hard enough...But jeez he's funny

@ I remember, whilst I admire your tenacity in slagging Rossi and anything said or done by him, can I point out that not only did Ducati move Heaven & Earth to keep him...Yamaha welcomed him with open arms and have promised to treat him as an equal to Jorge. Does that make you right and them wrong?

If more than one person is posting as 'I remember' I aplologise.

Rossi should just call it quits. I used to think he was actually a proper racer. The Ducati foray was nothing but humiliating and showed him up big time. All the talk of "stoner's not riding hard enough", "I'm a development guru" etc, and then proceeding to shuffle around mid pack, all the while getting owned by his team mate and either crashing, finishing 10th, and whinging constantly is embarrassing. It's only going to get worse.
