Valentino was "written off" the year Nicky Hayden won the world title, also the year Casey won. It seems if Valentino doesn't win the championship, he has had it and needs to pack in! Was any of this said to either Nicky or Casey the year after they both failed to keep their world titles?? No, because it is foolish. Valentino went on to prove his doubters wrong which he will do when he is on a decent bike! Valentino has a vast amount of experience so why would he risk life and limb and the rest of his career trying to do something with the Ducati that is obviously impossible! This has nothing to do with skill and talent, but a lot to do with common sense and self preservation!! The King will return!!!!
