@desmo fraud
u tell me how much parts did valentino design for Duc? can u understand that pilota dont develop a bike, engineers do that. pilota can only tell a feeling about bike and give advice what setting will be better for a comfortable feeling. U r idiot! cause u know nothing about racing. Valle is 34 years old, he achieved everithing, he has nothing to prove. sombady last year post here that even Dovizioso is better than Valentino, where is he now? and u know what if u say that Valentino is ruined this bike, i think moaner was more years in Duc than doctor, sow why this bike is such a ****? aaaaa?

He's still 0.427s behind
In racing, that's a mile and he's not competivive like those 3 guys.
He need to find a way to improve his peace or he's gonna eat the smoke.

10 agree. 1 disagrees. Report
Anyone who has watched him
since he was a kid and actually
has got off their ass and raced a
few things knew full well he was
going to do this. I and many
others before me have won
championships even at that such
old age of 39... Watch what he
may well do..
Oh all you haters are going to
be really unhappy this year.
And for you keyboard warriors -
remember he has hardly ever lit
up the leader lists in tests and
frankly often in qualifying... He
just does not need to.

Well history and even words from ducati garage(last season) says that vale never believes in fastest lap time in practice and qualifying,, he really drops the anchor during the race,, best bike is a thing but being unparalleled for more than 7 years on best bike means there is something more,, that's what we call race craft and hunger to win... Stoner retires this early but this man in not willing to, because love for the sport... Every genius or a legend will go through bad phases in their carrier, may be that is why he was on that s**t for two years, now its all over and rossi is sure to give one final blow right on the money before quiting and that will be his 10th crown or may be even 11th who knows,, to me he is the sachin tendulkar of motogp... Go on and on and on,, keep winning with some failures, he needs to prove nothing to anyone, because he is already proven everything to everyone

Talck about Vilas now.. Talck that we Rossi fans are insane?? Tell us now if you guys dont bealive that Rossi has a serious chance of be World Champion im 2013?? Like i had say before is ungry and he will whant to be ready for the first race.. Rossi is happy because he now can esaly be on the top 4 or even better and this is esaly, with a bit of worck 4sure Rossi can do even better but this is not the real point like Rossi had say.. What is importante is that he will have a bike for race hard and be consistente with fastest times!! Aim very Very happy and i understand if haters are on really bad shape right now..ahahaha - Unregistered

Rossi confirms my feeling that these guys don't need more than a dozen laps to get to the full potential of the bike. Granted, Stoner even needed less. But, for a while now, I don't believe much about experienced riders like Rossi needing a few test sessions to get the max of their bike. Heck, not even Marquez needed much to get to where he belongs.
So, yes, test sessions mean more than most of you proclaim.
