@anothername46 so Rossi developed a bike to be successful AFTER he leaves?? Any success on the Ducati this year gets attributed directly to.. Rossi?? You must be joking, right? Ducatis success wouldn't have anything to do with new management or using all 4 bikes in a combined factory effort at all now would it? Nope according to you all credit goes to Rossi. Love it.

VR has had his best years and achieved a lot. More than pretty much anyone else. Now things have moved on and I think he will struggle against the new kids on the block. Nothing to be ashamed of at all. Stay safe.

Being a Rossi fan I have to think he will be hard pressed to beatJorge and Dani but podiums will be his his platform
He still is and will be Mr MOTO GP
The driving force behind this crazy sport of ours
Good luck VR46

I dont think Rossi is going to struggle as much as people think.It may possibly take him a couple of races to build his confidence up again but thats all.Once he is happy,the lap times will drop.
I dont know whether he will be the force he once was,only time will tell,but if people think he is washed up they are in for a shock.

Whilst Lorenzo's race simulations are mightily impressive I think a lot of commentators are reading into it far too heavily. Lets not forget Lorenzo showed blistering race pace in practice for most of the 2012 season, and Pedrosa simply bested him during each race for the last half of the season.

Its not that he's the only one with great race pace, its just that the likes of Pedrosa don't show it till it matters.

Lorenzo claimed he had that bike advantage when he climbed his first crown in 2010 and we know that 3 consecutive manufacturers and riders title for yamaha is not without a reason, now we know that honda has taken over with that bike advantage,,

So in these last two years what in this world did JL develop on that yamaha except refining his settings to suit him more and making himself a better rider in every way on that once great machine... Rossi also said the bike has improved but more or less similar to what he left behind... And for past two seasons it was all Honda everywhere, may JL's second crown came just because the points were splitting up with that Honda garage,,

May be its all because not enough sponsorship money without Rossi, when Rossi left fiat also left and no big sponsors for two years and thats why yamaha didn't afford best parts for both JL and BEN, focused too much on JL and messed with the other one,,

Thank god Rossi arrived and monster arrived along and deve
