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.

Like or not he is more accurately described as the luckiest rider rather than most successful rider, because since beginning career in the MotoGP he always got the best bike and the best team, when he did not get the best he will be far behind

@dacron
tho i agree but not my point... point is Stoner was dominated on that day, like many that came before him...
there were some others where those two swaped paint, as well rossi n lerenzo, but thats the most epic.

lean two.... yes true , he was dominated on that day for sure , crashing put an end to a final icing to an incredible race that could of went either way , still managed to crash out and stand second on the podium all in one race , won't see the ducati in such a high pace battle for a long time i think , but i hand it to vale for doing what he did , they were both on another dimension that day.

If Rossi didn't go to Ducati then no one would have seen just how bad the Ducati is. Look at riders like Melandri and Gibernau who's MotoGP careers were wrecked because of the Ducati. At least these new young riders won't be told to see a head shrink by Ducati anymore! Thank you Rossi for putting things in perspective :)

I'm a rossi fan and I know he only went there for one thing and that was to win. He couldn't ride the bike so lets not cloud the waters with excuses to make us feel better.
It was obvious before he got there that the ducati had issues and stoner was a rare talent, if it took valentino to make you see that you weren't watching the racing. I can see a win or two this year but it will be a struggle against the hungrier riders.

@fortune rider how can you say that he gets the best bikes when he left honda and went to yamaha that bike had nt won a race and as for only casey could ride that ducati is more luck than skill when ducati brought 07 bike to grid it was a far better bike than every thing else after that year every manafactor got better and ducati didnt and it showed in the number of races that casey won each year after and if the casey was back on that ducati the only race would win is philip island just because he rules that place

@damo why did Stoner get 23 wins on it when nobody else from 08 had any? Yes the other bikes changed but the ducati was still a bike capable of wins and poles in 09 and 10. Stoner could at least challenge for podiums if not wins while rossi was barely able to fight for top 5 finishes... on the exact same bike stoner hopped off for the first 6 races of 11. With all the support he had at Ducati, his results were disappointing. Ducati didn't listen to stoner because he was still winning so why change it? When Rossi came I think that bike changed more times in those 2 seasons than it ever did when stoner was there.

@Crystal ball well lets see.... Since stoner came in Rossi beat him in 06, 08,09,10 and Lorenzo too. Lorenzo beat Rossi less than 9x out of the first 40 times they raced. Until the broken leg and departure from Yamaha he had these guys under control. How can you folks not see that. Even in 2010 Rossi won Qatar, then got injured in a training accident finished 3rd, 3rd then was leading FP2 in Mugello when he crashed and broke the leg. Came back 40 days later and still grabbed like 6. More podiums. If not for the spell at Ducati he would have still been in the hunt the last couple years. The fact that nobody can win forever is one that will always creep up on every great of every sport. So stoner and Lorenzo are just so much better because they beat him when he fell off? When did they "dominate" him b4 the duc spell? NEVER!
