Valentino Rossi's final outing as a Ducati rider is an unhappy one as he can only finish in tenth place, a lap down on Dani Pedrosa.

As I couldn't wait to see VR in duc 2 years ago, I'm counting the hours missing to the first laps on his previous bike.
Just a couple of words to who s accusing Vale to not force yesterday, Niky did it, and you saw the results, nobody likes to fell down and you could count the times VR fell down with 2 hands.. before to pass to duc.

ups...all we(most of us) know about motogp team, engine, contract item, etc..etc.. is just "assumption". we're never involved, just arm chair warriors. please don't justify anything by assumption.

Rossi has talent, that's no doubt about it. He has racecraft.

But he won up his name because there was NOBODY with the same talent. As soon as Stoner and Lorenzo, Dani appeared on the Motogp grid and gain some experience, things started to change.

Anyway, back to the topic: his performance on the Ducati was pathetic. It was so obvious that he's not pushing that bike to the limit, that I wonder that they didn't fired him...

if VR win on M1 it is the bike not him, if you can only win on a perfect bike then your are just the same as other, who can also win on a good bike , but if you can win on a **** bike bike, thats another story,especially when nobody can but only one can win on the said bike,a true rider not a fraud.

Casey is a truly a legend, but his wins on the Ducati were in part due to a bike that had a clear power advantage and though the chassis wasn't the best, the Bridestone tyres, that only Ducati had, offered were vastly superior to the Michelin tyres that all the other riders had. Who doesn't remember the fuss that Rossi made to switch to Bridgestone asap despite the contract with Michelin? When Rossi and Lorenzo had identical bikes but Lorenzo was forced to stay on Michelin who was dominant? But when they were both on Bridgestone ...
