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.

I deeply respect all riders, but why is there so less respect here for a true legend as Vale? Most champs in all kinds of sports ride, drive, play in the best teams in the best conditions

@Gregg.
Um um well I don't think I can add anything to your excellent post, you covered everything and honestly also.
Can't wait to see Crazy Joe on the Ducati, I got a feeling he might be the man.

You know, I'm convinced that most of the people on here must have just started watching GP racing, because I refuse to believe that anyone can be that ignorant. Just two years ago Rossi was on pace to another very competitive season and championship until he fell and broke his leg, much like your savior Casey Moaner did this year. He then get's on this Ducati which he just can't figure out, and now I hear everyone saying he is garbage. If Rossi had one major fault it was thinking he could easily fix the Ducati so quickly even after seeing how many people couldn't. I believe Rossi's success on the HOnda and the Yamaha may have made him too cocky in thinking he could master it. But please don't mistake cockiness for lack of talent. If Rossi is guilty of one thing it would be that of which I just spoke of. But to say that he can't ride anymore or was never a great rider is just absurd. Tuesday will tell many things, but don't ever forget who constantly dominated GP racing the last

Didn't Rossi leave Honda complaining he didn't get enough credit for the best bike in the field always winning? (We already know the answer).

Interested to see the Yellow panty brigade, all having ago at the Ducati, that JB and Rossi claimed was only 80 seconds away from being fixed!!

GOAT is right...!

@RTP***

Do you have some memory loss issues or you just choose to ignore facts?

Havent you rad anywhere about Ducati freezing updates?? Their new engine is still due(Since US gp, or Brno ).

See the way honda Threw updates and new bikes. Else the "great" moaner was facing chatter probs with Honda.

And all upgrade from Ducati, didnt mean they were right upgrades needed. No wonder, they want their frame designed by Suter.
Hope they had thought about it in two year, we would have got to see which tune would Lacey and the Moaners Moan to......

After 2 yrs and 16 million euro's + whatever Ducati spent..cough " developing" to rossi and jb's specs the great man walks away defeated and humbled.

Well with Stoner gone he can possibly get a few podiums on the best bike( maybe not with MM on the Repsol Honda) before Yamaha decides to give his bike to someone deserving and faithfull.
