@Tetley Your rationale for Lorenzo and Pedrosa is plausible. Your rationale for Stoner is cynical and derogatory, and misrepresents the facts - your opinion though. Your defence of Rossi is inconsistent with Rossi's own explanation...He chose the wrong tyres, and was uncompetitive. Of course he didn't want to crash, but he claims he was trying, and he wanted to do better. However, I also believe his being lapped is a symbolic end to a disasterous folly. Ducati made more changes for Rossi than they have made in aggregate for all other riders that raced for them since 2003. He still couldn't ride it. Myth busted. We'll soon see whether his return to Yamaha is a fanboy dream, another nightmare, or simply a yawn.
