Rossi is trully amyzing guy!! All what he say has been true if he can put the bike worcking well he delever de results that people expect, we wach that him the rain and him Misano.. Also him Aragon if he dont have that incidente with Rea he was able to ride at the pace of some satelite bikes that this year allready have podiums, is not to much for one factory bike 4sure they whanted to allways be there even if it was the 3 place bike, but the realaty is that until now Ducati dont achieve that level, i continut with the same feeling Rossi can t be the fastest compared with some new stars but is riding ability and is speed is enaught to still win WC.. Is Best points the most strongs he have allways was is Consistency and Breacking.. So since Motegi is a track with a lot of hard breacking points aim loocking foward to a top 5 or better result, hope all goes well and i bealive that him 2013 Rossi will prove to all guys that with one bike build to win Champions he will be a contender for th

Wow, just a handful of comments on this Rossi story.

Says alot really. I remember when Rossi used to gets loads of posts, now he's stuggling to get a few pages, let alone a few hundred like the Stoner threads seem to get.

I think its safe to say that Stoner IS moto gp, especially after the lack lustre couple of races we've had without him.

Rossi could continue to fade even more and not many would notice, only his fans.

Anyway, i really hope Rossi can saort himself out next season, because with the great Stoner retiring after this seasosn, the series sure needs some excitement thats for sure.

We now know that Rossi DOES need the best kit to do well, but will he be able to come back and ride like he used too and push 100%, or will it take him longer than 80 seconds with the Yamaha too?????

Time will tell.

Vilas, ok so how do you explain the fact that Stoner was able to win on the same bike that Rossi jumped on in Valencia 2010?

And did you actually watch the last race or are you just making assumptions that you want to beleive.

Rossi's lap times were slower than Rea and Bautista most of the time, and he was only able to match their times for a few laps.

Is that something to be proud of you think? Matching a few laps of Rea who is an absolute rookie who has admitted in riding around and not yet fully racing around, and Bautista who is riding the test dummy Honda?

He was no where near the lap times of even Spies, let alone Cal and Dovi's satallite bikes.

Please dont try and butter things up to look better than they were, because we all know that Rossi had a poor race, despite his donkey move nearly taking Rea out.

Its your opinian m8, aim shure many people also agree with me!! Stoner could win last race him 2010 but that was 2010 not 2011 or 2012, If Stoner could ride harder the Ducati has it was ok he could ride hard but he never win more then 1 champ and was 2007 tell me wy?? was the star of a new rule 800cc that Ducati play better on the developmente and was the top bike of that year then what?? 2 place 2008 japonese mach the ducati but the bike is still competitive them 2009 4 place, Ducati is going down then 2010 4 place them comes Rossi to ride one bike that he say aim not good i can t feel the bike and couldn t puch 7 place not that bad really consedering that this year we have 3 repsol honda where there riders have a good sesson speacly Dovi that him 2010 was not good, even somoncelli that happen what happen have more points that him 2010 and has we know he dont complete the year the 2 yamahas Ben was Rookie him 2010 2011 was is best year performing, Rossi can still be the top Duc

Rossi can still be the top Ducati but dont enjoy the ride not good.. and now 2012 the year star the same bad but the bike had been made small steps and with 4 races to finaish the year the propspect is better then on the star of 2012 Rossi have now 128 points and still have 4 races, this year will be even better for Ducati on the standings but the problem is there lack of speed and knowledge on developmentd the parts that are need to change Ducati that is not competitive compared with any japan bike at the momente.. For me this is the realaty and for 2013 you will wach the diference him Rossi..

@The truth hurts
Dovi will have a very different bike to the one Rossi started with . If he does well there will be people who will say it's only Rossi he couldn't ride it . but the one rider who can really give an opinion on before and after will be Nicky Hayden , Although i wanted Crutchlow to go to Ducati i didn't want it to be as a result of Nicky going .
