I think the bike needs more color. As for Rossi himself, I think he is going to surprise us. The Ducati although not his style bike and he never came to grips with the thing, required a certain style to ride. AKA flat track style. He had to do some learning to keep from having the thing spit him off. And if he can add that style to his weapons.........

It is not 2004 - Unregistered

It is not 2004 it is now 2013.

Rossi is not going to win in South Afrika this year.

In my opinion VR46 is not going to win the first Gp this year.

Still hoping to see Vale win again.

But I don't think it is likely.

By the way how much did Ducati pay VR to make the Desmoseduction look Bad?

@its not 2004 "By the way how much did Ducati pay VR to make the Desmoseduction look Bad?"
A shed load and he did not make it look bad it is as Ben and the new boys are about to find out! By the way how much have they, Ducati, been paying Nicky to be soo bad that they are giving him yet another year at being second best Ducati. Anyway you get nothing for being fast in testing but its going to be interesting come race day!

Nicky is one of the hardest workers in the paddock who has had to share the garage with two high profile riders.

I think he's done a great job and finished a hell of a lot closer to Rossi than he ever did to Stoner, so who knows, maybe he could be the No1 at Ducati this year?

Good luck back at Yamaha Vale.

Rossi yellow front guard, Lorenzo red front guard.

The Yam still wearing the Anrea Iannone pattern on the side?

Fingers crossed for a dry test tomorrow

Rossi is the typical example what you see when you place a spoiled rider/pilot on a bike that doesnt have match tires. You put Marquez or Bradl or Lorenzo maybe even Dani (although he has improved substantially) on a difficult bike/tire combo and you will see some serious depression.

People like to rail about how some of the riders and bike's are sh*t, but they completely ignore the fact that Bridgestone have fit the Yam since 2009 and discarded Ducati and left Honda digging like crazy.

The easiest ways to fix a race is to control the tire scheme. Engineering for the camera, not for performance.
