Now that he is the #2 rider in the team I expect him to submissive to the #1,just as his past teammates had been to him. I expect him to act as a human shield behind his master, similar to how Edwards had been in Estoril in 2006. I also expect him to receive inferior parts and less support than the number 1, just as he demanded when he was number 1.

All the MotoGP riders risk injury, permanent disabilities and even death every time they take their bike on track.
It would be foolish for them to risk all when there is nothing to gain.
VR made the sensible decision to stay clear of the Ducatti's danger zone.
The changes now happening at Ducati prove that Audi have sussed that the right way to develop was in the directions which VR and JB said were needed, and that VR was being handicapped by poor decisions from Ducati management.

“why would lorenzo risk his neck if he already has the title in the bag? why would pedrosa risk his neck if jlo's already waring the crown? why would stoner risk his neck if it's his last race in GP? Posted by anklecurtains”
“Didnt stop Lorenzo Pedro and Stoner making the effort did it mate? Posted by The truth hurts”
Lorenzo has been riding tactically to get the title and at Valencia he wanted to show he is fastest.
Pedrosa wanted to win a seventh GP this season, to beat Jlo's 6.
Both were realistic goals.
Stoner said on the grid that he didn't want to be there and he was frightened of injuring himself so he only made an effort when he saw a podium was possible.
JLo, Dani and CS all had something tangible to gain.
I repeat, VR had nothing to gain by risking his neck.

To put it into perspective, I earn Euros 37500 per year, working extremely hard.
Yesterday, he 'earned' Euros 1 million for pottering around, supposedly not putting himself at risk, and his fans think that is reasonable??!!???
It would take me nearly 27 years of hard graft to make what he was gifted for just (barely) turning up yesterday.
Total disgrace.
I once rated Rossi. No longer. Zero respect.

is not hower problem that you are a miserable person just like many of us comum persons that will never win to much due to how poor jobs.. Rossi is 7 time WC on motogp had 9 Wc on total and is one motogp rider.. Go serch how much money superstars of Sports win and tell me if you think that is reasonable.. Riders are payd for there curriculum.. You talck like Money can puch the rider 1 or 2 secunds faster like if this money was payd by One CRT Team Rossi would have to win.. Growup m8 you are acting like a kid

Yes the word if has to be used has you guys many times use to defend Stoner if he was not injure at indy you guys think he would be the champion.. If Pedrosa didnt crash at misano Rossi would not have the 2 place.. All of you Rossi haters use to much the if so its time for i use has well.. Valencia race was a weathwe gamble very dificult to predict whats gona happen but Rossi star from what 11 place 10 place and after the 1 lap he was allready in 3 place, has soon the track dry he lost a lot of time also is setup was not worcking on Slick tyres and he was not confidente to puch because the bike dont act like he whanted to puch harder so shut your mouth
