Stoner retired and has no bearing on the 2013 season unless Crash needs to up its hit count.

Rossi finished exactly where everyone would expect. he does not have the pace of the front 2. The news of the test is that MM is taking a methodological approach to learning and fast out of the box.

We will get the sme boring season with Jorge/Dani swapping up front but with the added drama of Vale/Marquez battling behind them. I can see the first race promo now. "The King of the modern era vs. the young, wild challenger eager to prove he has the stuff!" They will create as much drama around the 2nd group as possible and marquez will be the antagonist/villain. The side story will be Honda vs. Yamaha in the MotoGP reality show that some fans seem to live for while an actual race is going on...

@ Dani P,
yet another Rossi basher, it would not matter if Rossi won by a second or a minute or came last I have no doubt you would find a reason to bash him some how.

I have to conclude your jealous of Rossi.

I think your going to be in with a shock when sundays come around because like it or not Rossi is going to take some victories this year, & dare I say it possibly even the championship.

Any one on here who has had the privilage of watching Rossi since he bagan his carreer knows full well his qualifying has not always been his forte, he works towards the race, something lorenzo learned very well from him, for Rosi to be just a tenth of lorenzo is a very good acheivment and clearly proves one thing, he is still fast & not just fast but on the pace with the best.

There are two kind of riders in the world.
Those who can fight on Ducati, and those who can't.
Rossi fans, keep this in your mind.
Ducati is the wall that separates the best and the rest.

Obviously most of the news will be about Vale, he has won in Moto GP 9 times and 7 times on the big bikes. He brought so many people into Moto GP and younger riders coming into Moto GP were once fans of his. He has done more for the sport than any one on that track and he has returned from Ducati after 2 years and is going fast again. So yeah..... forgive the attention he gets.

Lets not forget the Ducati isn't as competitive as it used to be, all the bikes have gotten better year after year. Stoner never looked like winning a championship after 2008 and year after year the bike got worse. In 2011 Tech 3 jumped ahead of the Ducati in terms of speed and the Hondas made a massive leap and Yamaha was still on top too. Now this year it looks like the Ducati has gotten even worse.....

If Stoner came back and started winning on the Ducati, then yeh that would be amazing, however I doubt he'd even get more than 5th now.

In a tweet today, Matthew Birt, MCN's MotoGP correspondent, quotes "Dovizioso just told MCN that Ducati needs to think about a new bike from the ground up. Need bigger and radical changes to try and improve"
Another site quoted "Nicky Hayden admitted that Ducati appeared to have fallen even further back after the first two days of testing. He conceded that falling further away from the pace was a blow to morale. "It's still a bit frustrating to be so far away. Even further away than we ended last year, I guess," said the 2006 world champion. "It's really tough on all the guys and me. We don't really necessarily have anything major to test, nothing really new. We'll just test about with the stuff we've already got and see if we can make anything any better."
Those quotes confirm that VR made a smart decision and that his assessment of the Ducrappy was the truth. His testing performance proves once and for all HE IS NO FRAUD.
