@The truth hurts

U make me laugh, yep Stoner has more wins since they both in busines, sow what? That makes him a legend, or all times greatest? U know, Valentino is 12 years in premiere class, with highs and lows, and all this stupid stoner fan arguments about more wins is total stupidity. Cause i want to see stats, after Caseys 12 years, when youngsters came and beat him easaly, like marques. Stoner fans might say that opponents was weak when Rossi win 5 in a row, but u know i want to see him aginst Biaggi on 500cc. Oh and try to compare who have most wins in their first 6 years in GP.

audi, once again i encourage you to think hard about this motogp program. you've paid a handsome some to acquire the brand and manufacturing equity already invested by others. ducati's USP has always been with WSBK, as you now see with all the change and upheaval, the pani is (like i said earlier) far and away the safer bet. assuming it survives the merger...? you can always attack grandprix later.

remember your focus...? it's NOT to "play" at racing to the entertainment of bikeworld beggars, but to SELL durable goods that afford profit margins... ie. CARS...! my accuracy rate on these things is an uprecedented 98%. both mercedes and bmw have SUV plants in the states cranking out vehicles approaching 2 decades (your still trying to build one) and we both know they're KICKIN' YOUR A$$ right now.

Oh no u dont say that Stoner is all time greatest, u just say he's like sundays racer on duc compare to Stoner. If U know something about racing u never say something like that. Cause there is nothing similar between 2007 year bike and todays duc. tipe in google:capirossi rossi 2013, and u will know what think about that triple wc Loris Capirossi. Who have win with duc, and have two podiums with that motorbike.

For goodness sake, he's doing the best he can on that dog of a bike that clearly cannot be improved. His team of the finest mechanics plus the financial might of VAG have not made one iota of difference,- to the bike that Casey had so much success on, - how can that be? - Perhaps the erudite and informed Rossifanbase posterati would be so kind as to enlighten us!

You could throw a blanket over Rossi, Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo. I don't think there's much that separates them in terms of talent. Number of wins or number of championships is irrelevant, too many other factors come into play, even head to head. Was Schumacher better than Moss simply because Moss never won the world championship? One will never know, but I don't think so. Both are supreme talents. Rossi is one of the greats as is Stoner.

At the risk of trying to communicate with *****s..

The 2007 Ducati had a massive advantage over the rest of the field mainly due to positive open/close (ie desmo) valve system. The spring valve jap bikes couldnt come close to the ducati. As the CC limit was lowered to 800cc the best way to make more power is to raise the RPM. The spring valve engines start to valve bounce at super high RPMs, hence the benefit.
Also, bridgestone tyres were a huge factor...
