It's such a shame that Rossi has failed with Ducati. To 'only' do as well as Hayden is just not good enough for a guy who was once at the top. Id like to know the truth as to whether Rossi has been trying his best or not though. He has admitted himself to not pushing to the limit, which i find totally absurbed for a top level racer, let alone to publically admit it. He is employed to race and put in 100%, and if he is seriously saying he has not been doing that, then Ducati should have given him the boot a long time ago in my opinion. I respect Rossi for what he has acheived in the past, but no one can ignore his failure for the last 2 years. I try not to bring up Stoner in Rossi threads and vice versa, but these 2 seasons of failure for Rossi, different bike or not, being more or less on level terms with Hayden, proves that he is not even close to the level of Stoner. Great rider yes, but clearly not the greatest that people thought he was.
