Interesting this team mate saga, at Ducati all Stoner's team mates had been racing in the premier class for longer and had won GP's and been GP world champions, Capirex, Hayden, Melandri. Now compare that to Rossi's GP team mates at Honda and Yamaha until Jorge' joined the team. How many GP races and titles had they won ?

Has anyone had a good look at that pic.
Like the old saying a picture says a thousand words.
@Codger bleeding toe, it's been so long wasn't sure so I omitted it, didn't want someone coming in and saying I was over reacting.
Also regarding the lean angle there were no knee sliders in those days.

Ta mate.

Thing is, as a lot of people keep saying, he only won 2 championships during his time with the big boys, so if he was that good, what happened there then!!!

The rest of his year, 1x1st 2x2nd 1x3rd 2x5th 3x6th 2x7th 1x11th 1x12th would have pleased the guys at Ducati in the 1st year if Stoner was not so good.
Motojunky.

Hmmm,"if Stoner was not so good".
That sounds like an admission that it was Stoner that made the difference not the bike!
Now we are getting somewhere!
If only everyone else could admit it too.

An insight into what makes a great rider (underline great) is in the list of all time winners & podiums.

The 4 'Aliens' (yes Slide Rules, I do think Rossi is still an 'Alien') are still riding and can be compared with all the great riders of the past.

Casey is 4th, which to my mind is credit to his phenomenal skill.

Jorge & Dani are 9th & 10th in the list, ahead of generally recognised 'greats' as Duke, Surtees, Read, Spencer, Sheene, Gardner etc.

So todays' guys are pretty special, don't you think?

Pleased to see 'Steady Eddie' Lawson well up in the list too.

PS..I do realise Casey has retired, still relevant to the list.

@ Side Valve....As you know, it wasn't Ago's fault that he had no competition, he did what he had to do and beat allcomers.
To me his best rides came on the Yamaha 500cc, winning the Title after years of riding the 4 strokes.
And his rides in the I.O.M. amazing.
