Well said @bolerobob, good point and the stat that is conveniently often ignored but will likely be the most important one people remember in years to come. Also often ignored is the fact Lorenzo won 2 championships in those seven years too. Most Rossi fans don't dispute the fact Stoner is a great rider, they just don't buy this whole "Stoner smashed the competition in his time in MotoGP" BS because of the championship stats above. @Wylie, just wanted to pick up on your comment about how many parts Rossi received for the Ducati. The bashers really like to oversimplify things. There is no evidence at all (based on Rossi or the other Dcuati riders' results) that any of the parts actually led to significant enough improvements to the bike. There is no way Rossi can be totally to blame for that.
