@ trummy200

Actually, Hayden said that it was the "fastest" Ducati that he has ridden. That statement could be interpreted a number of ways depending on who you - not YOU specifically - hate at the moment. One thing is certain...the GP ISN'T the fastest thing 'round a corner.

Why isn't Hayden and Dovi testing the GP? simple one is injured the other still contracted to a different team. This is not that dificult people.But The Mentor has a valid point in that, by Ducati pointing this out " that they're following Rossi's recommendations" that if the bike sees a mark improvement then Rossi will at least in the eyes of many will be vindicated.

@ 69goat

I didn't know someone with only 3 wins in entire his careercan be considered as the goat.

Secondly, as Ducati said "If a bike is good for Rossi, then it's good for everybody" So they care so much about Rossi's input, they tried everything to make him stay, even contacting mr Furusawa. in fact they don't care about hayden at all. He's been there for so long, what has he done??? nothing !! Now they're using Rossi asd long as his contract is valid. I'm sure Ducati with Rossi will imrove this bike a lot and will pave the way for Dovi.

@ fast fred

By that logic, Hayden should fare worse....no? He has done zero, zilch, zip, nada, diddley, nowt, nothing in nearly 4 years.

Of course I don't personally believe that Hayden and Rossi are twiddling their thumbs, but you can't cast disparaging comments in Rossi's direction without doing the same to Hayden. Why not refrain from the drivel and post something constructive (...that was rhetorical).

May be the guy was referring to the way VR has been riding.

The Old man has been riding the GP like it's an RV (Recreational Vehicle).

This is a vote for the Old guys who are past their prime to get out of GP and give up the factory seats for guys that are way quicker. All they are doing is building on their retirement nest egg.

VR (or maybe its RV) needs a have a good look in the mirror!

All this chat about Rossi. We'll see soon enough next season. There are a few on here that are going to look like school girls. For what its worth I reckon that Rossi will not win the title next year but I would thing he will be (barring accidents) on the podium 75% of the races. Lets look at who he will have for companny:
Dani, Jorge, Cal all he has to do is finish in front of one of those guys. I think he will be able to manage that in 75% of the races.
