A rider cannot be considered a true champion if he cannot ride the Ducati. Rossi, Doohan, Agositini, they are not true champions because they have not ridden the Ducati successfully. Only Stoner is a true chamion. He was a champion on Ducati. Stoner is the only rider who can slide a bike. Stoner is also the only rider who can ride any bike and be champion on it. I would bet my house that Stoner can be champion on a CRT. Like I proved, no one else but Stoner is a true champion on two wheels.

Delit Ronio. Enough with Stoner.
Stoner got the championship with Ducati because he is fast but also because the bike was developed by Capirossi.
After Capirossi left nobody could take another one with Ducati not even Stoner himself. In 2011 Pedrosa was first
in the championship until he collided with the late Simoncelli(which I will always miss to see in MotoGP).
In 2012 Stoner was defeated by Pedrosa. Please do not tell me it was because he was injured.
Pedrosa gets injured since 2006 with the MotoGP beasts and he does not give up. and he does not moan!
He fights with his size, his bike and the rest of the riders. Enough with these 'Stoner is the best' bs.
They are all fighters. gladiators. Learn to appreciate the sport and all the riders and don't let emotions blind you.
Be HUMAN!!! love the sport.appreciate the risks these people take for you to sit back and enjoy what it's
called MotoGP. and one more advice: Always remember Laguna Seca with Rossi and Stoner...what a

The solution is obvious. The Duc doesn't work with the current Bridgestone tyres.

The easiest solution for the sport would be to let them use whichever tyre they want to make the bike more competitve.

Either that or waste untold $$$ changing the DNA of the bike.

To be absolutely honest is this man saying anything that has not been said before about the bike! He is new to the team but saying exactly what Rossi has been saying for the last two years.A new petrol tank wow! Was this his input or something they already had from Rossi and Burgess which they slapped on her to try out? It took six says to get where the got at Sepang will this be transferable to other circuits or will they be back to stage one at the next test at Jerez? We can remember Rossi getting a good setup in private testing at Mugello last year only to be nowhere at the next circuit. The first two hours of the next test is very important to see where they are in real terms. If they don't have a setup in the first two to three hours they are in trouble.

@The Truth

your alias name doesn't reflect as to how it's supposed to be.
All you do is just bringing up all what it takes to put Casey down.the Laguna'08,Dani lead before collide in 2011 or else are just your personal partial picks.I could counter them with Casey fought extremely hard on the piggy ducati that day against mighty Yummy Yamaha to deliver one of the classy ever motogp battles that seems only he himself could do so on it as proven by his successor Mr Rossi that he couldn't any awe let alone regular podiums or wins-he just fell off to fight for 9th back at Laguna 2012.
as for Dani lead the championship table in 2011 untill he was hit by Marco,I can say Casey was leading the Championship far comportably until a donkey hit him back at Jerez 2011.
I watched and followed the years of motogp well and took time for analysis.So stop trying to look smart by bringing up a bit of sheet on Casey.not wise eh!

@the truth, while I don't agree fully with Delit Ronio's statements I also don't agree with yours.
You can use Pedrosa's injury in 2011 to defend why he didn't win the championship yet the same injury scenarios prevents Stoner from winning in 2012 and it's not a valid reason. Double standards???

Capirossi was so good, how many championships and races did he win on the Ducati again???

Also everyone in Rossi's corner always talks of Laguna '08 but then quickly forgets Phillip Island '09, Rossi on a far superior bike couldn't get anywhere near a Slithering, sliding Stoner on the POS Ducati.

Yes Stoner jumped shi to Honda and gets flack for it from every other forum troll yet Rossi does the same and he is a riding God because he knows when it's a lost cause.

Yellow pantied brigade are full of double standards, even when Stoner leaves he gets under your skin. Say alot of his talent and Rossi supporters maturity..........
