@Jas

Are you kidding mate?
Troy Bayliss never rode in MotoGP???
How old are you? 15????
The guy had 2 full years with Ducati in 2003 and 2004 and one year with Honda...
Get your facts straight.
Don't want to take away anything from him but Bayliss won that race because Nicky was comfortably 3rd and he would become champion with Rossi falling and ending up 8th if I can remember.

Say what, are you kidding Bayliss did race in MotoGP and it was a failure except for his one off ride on the Ducati where he won the last race of the season that saw Hayden win the championship when Rossi screwed up after coming back from a deficit in the points towards the end of the season. Bayliss may have done better given more time but he made the right move to return to WSB.Bayliss with out a doubt is one of my favorite riders for the passion and intensity he brought to riding.

@JAS,
Since when does an engineering department let the crew chief engineer a bike? The way it works is they are supposed to listen to input and suggestions and then make changes or redesign. What comes back is from the engineering department, and from what has been said Ducati's engineering department listens very little. They even get pissed when someone suggests their bike didn't work. Why do you think their last two #1 riders left. Because the bike and the engineering were so good?

Fastfish I agree that Rossi currently can only be compared with Ago and Hailwood. JLo needs to win a few more championships to be considered in the same breath. Marquez while impressive and has talent he hasn't won any Motogp championships yet and until then he only represents potential.

@ Marc,

Nothing personal against JLO, he's a fantastic rider who's also possibly a bit underrated.

But even if one reaches 6-7 premier class championships, would that be enough to be considered among the 3-4 best *ever* without showing racecraft, last lap battles and without some legendary races at par with those guys?

Doohan has 5 titles, might have done 6, but that's not enough for him to be in the 3-4, no?
