@ Aces thats the point of it all, no one but him could ride it. Even the late, great, machine taming, master of fixing bikes in 80 seconds, development guru, known as rossi! ducati wouldn't change stoners bike because he was winning on it. how many times did they change the bike while rossi was there? 7? 8? I lost count.. I don't buy the delay theory of yours either. bikes change every year, maybe not right away, but soon it will be dovi's ducati, certainly not as fast as rossi changed stoners ducati though

It all depends how you define a 'winning bike'

In 2009 Stoner went 9 races between wins. In 2010 he went 13 races between wins. His brilliant riding gained a good number of podiums but the bike wasn't up to scratch and was falling behind...as Rossi found out.

My man Dovi is doing well but there is some of Rossi in that bike. Mind you what is Nicky up to?

@ Roman my comment about Lorenzo smarting a bit actually means that JL will be upset to see Rossi ahead of him in the timesheets.

So, not actually bagging on Rossi at all then. You just don't understand what was written, & are looking for something that isn't there. You're in such a hurry to be the glorious defender of VR, that you're leaping in even when you don't need to.

FWIW - I'm not anti-Rossi. But I don't subscribe to him being the best by miles either. I prefer to look at what a racer is doing, and on what, and against who, and then see how he's doing. The bias I leave to you - you've got it taped.

I define a winning bike as one that crosses the finish line ahead of everyone else several times a year.

Are people actually expecting us to believe that Dovi was quick on the Ducati because of Rossis development?
Please,dont go there!
