@boner.In which way was the 2007 Ducati tailor made for Stoner exactly?
And how did he push the bike into darkness?
Was he or was he not winning races on every version of the Ducati that he was handed?
Not to mention the pole positions and countless other podiums.Surely the darkest time for Ducati has been the last two years.Which has nothing at all to do with Stoner!
People like you will always claim that because Stoner was getting fewer wins as the years went by with Ducati,that it was all Stoners doing,despite the fact that he was telling Ducati about the bikes problems,which they failed to remedy.But when Rossi failed to win any races you will say it is all Ducatis fault!
You cant have it both ways.

busa boy it took him 13 races before he won in 2010. Its obvious the Ducati was losing ground to the other factories. Thats the point you need to remeber before slagging Vale's efforts.He sneaked a few wins due mainly to Lorenzo having the title sealed, Pedrosa injuring himself at Motegi and Rossi not being 100%. I dont see anybody doubting Caseys speed not even diehard Rossi fans do that.

@rabcati,i am well aware that Ducati were losing ground to the Japanese manufacturers.My point was that it was not Stoners fault,as Boner implied!
And i am not slagging Rossis efforts either.But to suggest that Stoner sent the development of the Ducati backwards when Rossi faired even worse on it himself,is complete nonsense.

@ rabcati
you have no idea what your talking about my matey , you need to buff up your info on things before rolling off accusations like that.
most people know that in 2010 stoner's wrist was in 3 pieces and he couldn't work his throttle properly , it wasn't until after mid season his crew realised what to do and lifted his seat to give the wrist more freedom of movement , then the wins started coming.
there are threads out there on the subject with both stoner and ducati and his crew explaining this.

I have said countless times but the Stoner bashers ignore a simple fact. From the end of the last pre season test to the end of the each season Stoner was never ever given new parts. The bike he started the season with was the one he ended with. No changes to engine, frame, brakes etc. On several occasions they would retrofit older parts onto the new bike to resolve handling issues. Like the adjustment of the seat to help with his wrist, they made do with what they had because nothing new was coming from the factory. Compare that to Rossi. They closed down their WSBK support so that they could provide new parts on request from Burgess and Rossi. They provided dozens of major updates and still Rossi couldn't get a result. These are facts, not fanboy fantasies.

and by the way...the threads u r referring to are all the same, ur hero moaning abt his wrist, even after the operation. and the best part is the problem arises only when he gets a bad result, when he wins there's no problem. heckk..he even complained of shoulder pain.

You have trouble with comprehension Boner? English not your native language? They knew about his wrist problem. It took a while for them to come up with a solution. Is that so hard to understand? Do I need to list the endless times Rossi mentioned his injury? Why would Stoner need to make things up? In the seven years he raced MotoGP he thrashed Rossi in every measurable statistic. This rubbish about Stoner being a moaner is just that and it is the thing people like you hang onto when it has been demonstrated just how superior Stoner has been for seven years. When I show Rossi saying exactly the same things it turns to "But it is how Rossi said it!" Yep, he has been full of smiles when endlessly complaining about the Ducati for two years. The hypocrisy is amazing.

"In the seven years he raced MotoGP he thrashed Rossi in every measurable statistic."

Lol Wylie, you really can't bring yourself to say it can you.

2 championships apiece. There, 'nuff said.

(having a dig about someones comprehension or language is bit desperate mate...)
