@ Steve Fox 'To finish first, first you have to finish'
With all due respect Steve, thats why Rossi has won 9 world titles to Stoners 2, he stayed on the bike! Stoner always said he raced to win. Admirable in one respect but that doesn't win you championships. Look at Lorenzo last year. On outright speed, Stoner has definately got the edge but Im sorry at putting together a championship, he just isn't as good as Rossi.
Another sign of greatness is the ammount of different bikes you win races and championships on. How many bikes has Stoner won on compared to Rossi. As a Rossi fan, I am the first to admit he simply wan't as good as Stoner on the Ducati, no question. But look at the bigger picture. What about the smaller classes? Are you telling me the factory KTMs and Chechinnello Aprilias that Stoner had were rubbish bikes? And the RC211V that he had in 2006? I doubt it!
I think people forget all this.
I'll never forget the hammering Rossi took after the Mugello practice crash in 201
