@Vilas haha. I was messing with your spelling mistake. star - start... the other was for Tetley, but he probably won't respond. Anyway, your explanation doesn't help with the myth of "Rossi the bike developer"...not that I care about that one. Rider's don't develop. Nor do crew chiefs. They give feedback. End of story.
Great riders tend to be able to ride around problems. Rossi's key talent was exploiting advantages. He couldn't work the Ducati out, and changed too much. As Stoner said - you have to ride it the way IT wants to be ridden. It's Italian. It has issues. I just wish Ducati ditched the management lot that treated Stoner with contempt instead of Preziosi. He moved heaven and earth trying to fix the bike so Rossi could compete with it.
