What Stoner predicted at the start of the season is coming true, slowly but surely the other Honda riders and now the Ducati's are starting to experience chatter on the new tyres as they start to push them closer to their limits. The tyres rushed in after the season started are purpose built for Yamaha.

Hayden behind Rossi? Missed the last race I see. You must have missed Qatar,Jerez, Silverstone, Assen AND Laguna Seca. Probably would have been a few more if Hayden stayed healthy.

You can say what you whant but the standings dont lie.. Since 2011 that the best Ducati Rider is Rossi even if the results are a bit desapointing for one factory Team the realaty is that even ton this we can t blain Rossi, Ducati has a lot to do with there lack of Performance!! Hayden only have a chance at Ducati for 2013 because Rossi leave and they whanted one rider with experience there.. If they trust on Hayden they would have give him a 2 year contract not one year, he is lucky to be him Motogp.. Anyway best of luck i dont hate him i just dont agree with some views that rank Hayden better then

Rossi and Hayden are both former world champions and remember Hayden beat Rossi to the 2006 crown. And yes I know Rossi chucked it away, but he did that by making an error so in the end by any measure that matters Hayden rode the best. But of course whatever the machinery Rossi has beaten Hayden more often than the other way round.

Unless you are the sort of idiot who will select individual races or worse still practice sessions to prove a point the evidence is clear that Rossi is the better rider of the two.

The gap isn't, however, as wide as some Rossi fans would have you believe. Even if rider A has won ten times more races than rider B that doesn't make A ten times better than B.

Pol Espargaro on his Moto2 bike is closer to Hayden than Hayden is to Stoner. We're talking about a juiced up 600 with extremely limited electronics and steel brakes vs. a full fledged factory bike with all the fixings. What does that tell us? Well, that Stoner is fast. Pol is fast. And, Ducati ...well ...
