If you really think Rossi is a "fraud" that would mean MotoGP is joke. At that point why even watch. For someone to say Stoner sucks makes them delusional all the same. It would be nice to see the game played out with each gladiator having their top weapon of choice, but someone quit :(

Iam fully expecting to see Rossi running for victories next year.After all,he will be on one of the 2 best bikes on the grid.And its now plainly obvious to anyone who has been watching for the last 2 years that he can only win on the best equipment.Or does that only apply to Stoner and Lorenzo?

The truth hurts

I almost agree with you and you may think that aim wrong but him 2004 Rossi won on one bike that was slower then the V5 of Honda.. But after that he had good bikes after that year Yamaha allways was contender even if him 2007 was no mach to the Ducati but that was fix him 2008 and until now...

@Vilas quote....'One guy that dont respect Vale dont like Motogp!!'

Thats not true at all.

I respect what Rossi has acheived in MotoGP, but not as a person. Or at least not for some of the things he has said/done.

The whole 'me or lorenzo' thing, the wall in the garage. The comments made about lorenzo and the fact he shows lack of resepct to his closest rivals.

The 'stoner is not riding 100%' thing. The whole 80 seconds thing.

Rossi is a great rider, or at least was a great rider. Regardless of the 'weaker' competition he had when he won his other titles, you can take anything away from him for winning in 2008/2009. Yes ok Stoner was on the Ducati, and things may have been very different if he was on the best bike too, but thats racing. You can only beat the riders you are up against.

Either way, Rossi has shown that he is unable to ride a bike that is not perfect, like Stoner can.Id oput money on many of the riders on the grid could do well on the best bikes, just like Ros

Oh you think that!!

How many races he win him 2007? and how many he win him 2010?

how many he win him 2011?
How many he win him 2012?

Stoner is an alien we all know that but he had 27 years old and go quit with 2 world Champions each then where won with diferents gaps one him 2007 and the other 4 years later.. What happen that Years 2007 Ducati is the fastest bike of the grid that could not turn has well has one yamaha and that true but the advantage of the engine was so big that he won the majoroty of circuits Ducati win esay...
Him 2011 Honda put is best shot on the last year 800cc have the top machine only Lorenzo could beat Pedrosa for the 2 place on the standings because Simoncelli RIP injure Pedrosa at Lemans.. Lorenzo state the Honda is better we have to improve the bike..

I call this win on the best bikes and was not constatly he was oustanding on the years that have best material

you are blind, the advantage of engine speed was so big that Stoner can loock who is beahind him on the exit for the straight line him qatar and then he dont even need the slipstrean he fly pass the Yamaha hiting 1 the corner, Rossi can be very good on Breaks and was what save some races him the 2007 year but was not enaught,

then Yamaha fix there desavantages and for 2008 Yamaha win and 2009 and 2010 even Rossi missing races finish ahed of Stoner..

No doubt Rossi wins with Honda was esay even he say that was one of the ressons that made him Join yamaha.. He let the chance to Biaggi that complain about the Yamaha but then Rossi arrive and guess what with one engine that Forusawa build and Rossi choose Yamaha pass form top runner to WC machine until and aim hipocrite?? its the truth that Hurts many guys like you

You still don't get it do you.

2007, explain Donnington, Laguna Seca, Phillip island, Misano. Not really known for top speed tracks are they?

Top speed is used once per race, there's more corners than front straights. Ducati's problems in the 990 class was they built the bike for outright top speed, including aerodynamics. How'd that work for them?

You don't need top speed to win a race. Ask Rossi in 2004. If it was not for Fruwasawa and his design changes to the M1 from 2003-2004 Rossi wouldn't have stood a chance at the title. Then of course there is the little thing about the best tires, best suspension etc etc. See where this is going?

You're a hypocrite because your claims of Casey's success are only attributed to the bike, yet we are all witnessing what happens when Rossi is truly on an inferior bike (unlike 2004). But that doesn't count right? Rossi winning on the best equipment is different than anyone else winning on the best equipment, right?
