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.

"now days so much electronics that with out them you couldnt even ride the machine fast (lap times)!!!!!"

Rossi was the first rider to benefit from electronics when he rode the first RC211V. At the time he said the traction control was "not fair" and gave him a huge advantage. He then took his HRC electronics engineers to Yamaha to continue the class leading systems development. Vale benefitted from electronics and has had the best available throughout his MotoGP career.

It seems that Herr Pietsch has got rid of everything that doesn't work.
I'm willing to bet that Mr Yamaha is already scouring the contract for a get out clause!
Very disappointed if that was the best the so called "goat" could manage for his Ducati swansong.

Before Rossi was linked with a move to Yamaha, he was asked what his plans were for 2013. He answered by saying that it depends on the next couple of months. It was obvious then, and even more so with hindsight, that he was referring to the effect of future upgrades. They still haven't arrived and, according to Nicky, they won't be there tomorrow. Why wouldn't Rossi look elsewhere for a ride?
So talk of him deserting Ducati, scurrying back to Yamaha, not earning his pay, etc is inaccurate. Ducati stated that they tried hard to keep him, but they couldn't provide him with the bike he wanted.

I hope the haters have take a loock at is contract like some experts here know a lot about that!! Go take a loock if he will win the money he won at Ducati now riding the Yamaha!! He will win less then Lorenzo you noobs and that is a prove of love for racing not about money.. Money Rossi had a lot since he won title at Honda etc back him 2001 Etc.. Just like maverick Vinalez that is a kid but its one kid that allready show so much potencial that allready is in the Top 10 Best pay riders at Motogp and the kid that have 17 years old or somethingh is riding a **** 250cc single 4 stroke bike maybe he allready win more then Biaggi at Aprilia in Wsbk..eehehe

Rossi gets beaten by Ellison and Abraham, and his critics get all fidgety and excited. Nobody actually gives any credit for good rides by them.

I'll bet that Karel can't wait to get on his next years bike, and not have to ride the Ducati again.
As for James, excellent ride after being given the elbow. Both are better riders than they are given credit for, and Ellison has been shafted all year by Bird. He didn't deserve it.

there there now

I think you are spanish if so go ask Ferrari why they dont build a good car for the so called great him f1 win the damm the title like people say that Alonso is the best rider right there.. Maybe they are trying to improve and 4sure Alonso give then the right direction to improve but also 4sure that Ferrari is not been able to developd the right parts to put Alonso beating vettel for the title for exemple.. !! The same is happening with Rossi, why do you say that he dont help Ducati if he allways try to give then the right direction but Ducati thenself dont know how to build what is requested.. otherwise they would not try to Sign Forusawa and Audi would not take this major move making a deal with Suter to have a chassi.. how humiliating is that for one Team that was allways concern about defendind there tradicion.. You seam to not understand the problem here the Director of the GP project the guy the design the parts ASK FOR HELP HE WAS GIVING IS PLACE TO FORUSAWA.. T
