Thats true but aim shure that of that 7 bikes neither of them is call Ducati or Mv agust or Aprilia or Bmw.. I think that this 7 bikes are Hondas and Yamahas , and satelite Hondas and yamahas we know, all of them are outstandings riders only Rossi that is 7 times Motogp Champion lost is talents him 2 years because him 2010 even with that injure missing races etc Rossi was a Wc contender finishing him 3 and almost cach Pedrosa and guess what was him front of the WC bike Ducati the Ferrari with guess what the Superhuman Casey Stoner that win races..lol **** how Rossi did that

Yeah that's cool . And likewise i fully relate to what you said . Rossi's main problem is the time factor . He simply cannot afford another year with Ducati . If he stayed and they got the bike dialed in he would be looking to mount a challenge in the fourth year . That is just too long for not only him but also Burgess who i think is just about ready to retire . I really believe he will win at least one more Championship with Yamaha before he retires . Does anyone remember Melandri's time at Ducati they told him he needed to see a shrink . Look what he did on that Kawasaki when he left . Ducati just assumed that if Stoner could win on it then the bike was fine. Strange how he only won one Chamionship with it though.

"And the facts are the Ducati was a race winning bike when it was handed over to Rossi.Now it hasnt won a race since."

True (facts) and also fact is the progression,

10 then 6 then 4 then 3. So after 4 years on it, he only managed 3 wins in 2010 (which came at the end).

So if you have any common sense, you wouldnt expect someone to jump on it for the first time and win races the way it was.

i'm excited about the valencia test this year...mann...that would be something to watch out for. Vale said he wants to enjoy the last couple of years in motogp and if he really starts enjoying it...boy oh boyy..w'll be in for a treat..

Dave.
Get your head out of the sand mate for Christ sake.
Rossi was hailed as the greatest of all time remember?
Yes,he should have been winning races on it from the word go.
The fact is,he has had it for 2 years and hasnt even come close to winning.You can attempt to manipulate the thruth any way you like but the results are the same.Rossi hasnt won a single race for Ducati in the whole time he has been there.I know the truth hurts mate,but you just have to deal with it.
