MotoGP » Suzi Perry: Rossi can win, 'stick two fingers up' at the critics


"I think we could see Rossi back on the top step of the podium. That would be great, because so many people in the sport have written him off. I want him to stick two fingers up at those people!" - Suzy Perry.

Since Stoner has been in Motogp he has won 38 races and 2 titles.In that same period Rossi won 26 races and 2 titles.And dont use the excuse that for 2 of those years Rossi was on the Ducati,because Stoner was on it for 4!

Since Lorenzo has been in motogp he has won 23 races and 2 titles.In that same period,Rossi has won 17 races and 2 titles.
So to say that Rossi has dominated every rider for the last 16 years is just not true.
He is a true talent and i take nothing away from his achievements.But lets cut the BS shall we.He is not a God and he doesnt walk on water.He is just a man.like all the other guys on the grid.

@R6Rider
what a poor attempt comparing Rossi vs Stoner by including '06.
Stoner was just as no competing considering the bike and the support he got back then.
what would you suggest how the table would have turned for Stoner had he ridden Factory Honda in 06?.
The stats would have looked worse for Rossi.
as for the case of Rossi 2010,he could manage 3rd in the final result despite missing some races with stoner 4th,what do you say about 2012?Stoner missed also couple races but clinched 3rd while Rossi 6th.
take this!.as poorly Stoner performed on ducati as possible,he always set pole positions,quick laps,many podiums,a couple wins,never under 200 pts and never below 4th overall.get that?!

@ Racer's Edge

You speak of hunger as if Rossi isn't hungry. He suffered the first win-less season(s) of his entire career on that Ducati. You don't think he's hungry??? You're mistaken. If anything, he's probably more hungry than anybody else on that grid, especially because he's out to prove a point.

Is this even news. Someone actually thinks Rossi will win again on a competitive bike... Shock. Next on crash.. water is wet, the sky is blue and grass is really green... ugh.

Rossi is at the end of his career. His less than Rossi-like contract with Yamaha shows how much his talent is needed there esp with Lorenzo in place. Definitely his marketability will help and he will win on the Yamaha possibly even 1 or 2 titles before he goes but he will still have the Ducati stigma attached to him forever. Sad to see, I really wanted the Italian rider on an Italian bike again. Fortunately the GOAT - AGO did it.

Dont have a go at Suzi Perry. Suzie did a very good job presenting MotoGp on the BBC. As Jake did presenting there F1 coverage. If people do not want to watch F1 on the BBC thats up to them. F1 was always going to go to SKY in the end. ITV did F1 between 1997 & 2008. You can either pay for SKY (All Races LIVE). Watch the BBC The BBC only show half the reces LIVE with highlights of the rest. Or stop watching F1 altogether.
Is Motogp coverage on EUROSPORT better then. For people who do watch F1 on the BBC please give Suzi a chance she did a lot better job then Charlie Cox does with Motogp

Rossi has hands down dominated every rider he's faced in the past 16 years. Sure once in a while he wasn't the fastest on the track and other riders took the checkered flag before him but they very rarely ever beat him in a head to head battle. If Rossi is healthy and the bike is competitive he has never been anywhere but the front so why do so many people question whether he still "has it" ? When I see another rider dominate a healthy Rossi while he's on a competitive bike I will be the first to question whether Rossi can still keep up...that just hasn't happened though.

Wrong to think any person who follows this sport will ever attach a "stigma" to Rossi's time with Ducati. Every single rider who threw a leg over that bike sufferded, not just Rossi. Even the great Casey Stoner achieved less and less and less until he finally jumped ship. It would have been great to see Rossi turn Ducati's fortunes around but it's not a surprise to any educated observer to see the bike is still a pile o crap.

@ CB99

When it comes to GP racing Rossi is a God. Should I list all his records for you again? Sorry dude but nobody even comes close. So yeah he is different than the rest of the guys on the grid by my reckoning. Even missing 2 years with Ducati his stats are far superior to Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa.(the next best riders)
