Not good way to finish but its done and dusted.
Both Ducati and Rossi can move on next year and I can't wait to see Marquez in Moto GP after that performance!

As said before I hope to see both Yamahas and Hondas battling to the last next season.

If Rossi is with .5 of Pedrosa and Lorenzo at end of get then that will be a positive

All I saw today was that piece of scrap iron called a Ducati ready to be binned, so many changes at Ducati for next season quite clearly Rossi/Burgess not listened otherwise these drastic measures would not have been actioned,Audi tried to re-sign Rossi,but if you are not listened to or valued why would you stay on.. Roll on 2013 with Rossi finally back on a competitive bike.

As a Rossi fan I think it's safe to say that he was probably a bit to old to tackle the Ducati as it requires a much different riding style to what he has perfect on the Japanese bikes.

I don't think he pushed the bike today just to possibly injure himself and put himself out of the first test on Tuesday.

I just hope that Tuesday will show everyone what the guy can do.

I have supported Rossi since 1997 but I am free minded and not deluded.
Today, Rossi was lapped in a mixed conditions race. He finished behind 3 CRT bikes which are much slower than the factory Ducati. If you don't do your job properly yo do not get paid. Rossi is getting paid nearly 1$million per race this season. Even as a long time Rossi fan I am seeing a side to him I do not like.

"It's a pitty Stoner leaves MotoGP instead of Rossi who proved a serious learning unability. Stoner is a much more gifted rider and an intersting free thinking head. "

Very true and a sad, sad, reflection of what MGP has become.

Kenny Roberts used to refer to GP's as the European championship, looks like those days are back.
