Quite right Veronicaisl, Max will be able to add nothing to the development of the Ducati. If we cast our minds back to the time when he was No1 Yamaha rider and for years everyone was losing the front all the time, when Rossi got on it he said it was like riding a knife, sorted it out and won his 1st race on it. Well even VR couldnt sort out this mess - Stoner is the only one capable (or maybe Bayliss).

The difference between a good rider and a great rider is if theyve still got it after there 40 years old and that is why Hailwood is the greatest of all time winning the isle of man tt after an 8 year lay off. Doubt Rossi wonder if Max can lap faster than Rossi could today cause theres a reason Jorges a fan of Max he emulates his smooth consistent style of being able hammer in lap after lap after lap at the same fast pace...

Rossi doesnt do the development work his team mates always done the development work and got shafted come race day Rossi is a top level rider and his only competition was Max on questionable machinery and Rossi got an M1that was of no comparison to the one Max rode no crossplane crank for Max to cross plane crank for Rossi big bit of development by between the time Max left yam and Rossi arrived.

A little selective history there folks. When Biaggi first got the M1 it was a 940 with carbs, gradually climbing to 990 over it's first year. Everyone had problems with it, not just Max who managed a number of podiums and wins on it, more than anyone else. Fusuwara and his team knew there were big problems and the redesign was well under way before Rossi even signed.

@fallingbomb No doubt that's from one of the many "Mr Stoner" copycat facebook pages.....1"49.8 was Crazy Joe's lap time. Max hasn't ridden a MotoGP bike since 05...they've changed a bit since then. Plus the Ducati is not the best behaved bike in the paddock...
