Objectively speaking, it is a bit short-sighted to say that Rossi was a bad investment. None of us know the intricacies of the political red-tape Rossi was dealing with when it came to development, but what WE DO KNOW (..if we are to believe what has been reported by various media outlets AND substantiated by Prezi, Furusawa, etc.) is that Ducati recognized that the problem lies from within. Sure, the rider can and should take some of the blame, but "how much would be considered fair?" That is a quantity that is almost impossible to pinpoint. Rossi was brought in to do a job (aid in development)...and it was a failed marriage....but without the tools, how are you supposed to do your job as effectively as expected? It was pointless to hire him and waste the entire 2011 season because of stubbornness.
