you guys are all arguing and complaining like a bunch of school girls , it's clear Rossi is not interested in Ducati and imo he gve up a longtime ago ! there are reason behind that ....! CS was a wild child when he came to Ducati ....and he had the youth and energy to tame the beast ...but it also got sore for him wkend in wkend out and he quit too go fedup Italians stubborn dnt wnnna listen to him...! imo Sete was a beater rider on a Honda than CS if it was not for Rossi who tamed Sete , Sete cld hv been double WC! Stoner rode Duke like a guy who needed to prove a point ! thats not the way too race ! this is jst my opinion lets debate about other interesting statistics in MotoGP rather than wining abt whos leaving and who neva won a duke etc,etc ! these guys dnt even knw us n they can do as they pls !go figure !!

rossi's pace is similar or better than the rmaining ducati's....

barbera as usual got a tow and even nicky got a tow towards the end from dovi(who was on a very fast lap) dont go solely on the basis of lap times....

other than that..this track lacks grip and is bumpy...the ducati has problem getting the power to the basically its a total anti of what ducati you cant expect rossi was always slower on soft tires.....tomorrows race if rode on hards or wets will be more decisive

One more I still remember Rossi said that riding a GP12 is like there's a Lion inside the fairing...he request a big bang engine and quietly Preziosi put screamer engine without they know it...that's why it like a wild horse - just can't control.-hahaha ~just joking~.

" Stoner rode Duke like a guy who needed to prove a point that's not the way too race "

A championship and 29 race wins for Ducati shows how daft that statement is.

Yeah i think that the race will be better, thats way most of the time he worcks with the rear hard and has been making a lot of laps to understand the bike.. Can denie that aim sad with the qualify but every track is a diferente feeling and can bring problems that on other tracks its more less ok.. this year had happens a lot of times the problems with chatter and soft tyre, its a pity!! When i wach bikes like the Honda and Yamaha loocks so esay to turn and to keep there lines i wach the confidente that they have but with the Ducati is diferente, was funny wach that this is the second time that Rossi and hayden crash the same way 1 time was Silverstone and now here, for guys that wach the FP3 that happen, ******* Ducati..lolo Can wait for 2013 but for now lets wait to see if him the race he can keep a good pace on race distance...

I was watching the QP and notice one thing, both Ducatis are the slowest bikes to lean for corner entry, even the CRTs are quicker. Both Hayden and Rossi looked like they're riding in slow motion. I pity Ducati for that.

Exacly that Sam, Loocks like other guys are riding one 600cc and the Ducati is more like a 1000cc speacily after turn 9 until turn 14 the riders are saying WTF you whant bike keep steady keep steady you Pig..lolo Its unbelivable..

@Garrett "these guys dnt even knw us n they can do as they pls !go figure !!"

Not only that, they don't care, and why should they? Most of the posts here are pure drivel! I don't agree with the rest of your post.

Sete had the opportunity, but didn't quite make it - he had Doohan's bike first - no results. Rossi had his measure (albeit with race day fly in Michelins). Sete is not in Stoner's league.

Stoner delivered for Ducati. Unfortunately, they apparently listened to the "it isn't him, it's the bike" BS. Rossi and JB each made some dumb claims about Stoner and Ducati. Their failure has been more painful for them because of that.

If Rossi "gave up" he should stop collecting his pay. I don't believe Rossi has given up - he's a professional racer, and 9x WC. Giving up is not in his nature. He's been humbled, but he is still trying - maybe not to the point of taking big risks - but still trying as hard as he can. It is an obvious mismatch.

Unfortunately, some (not all) of his fans
