No, no silly you are the one brainwashed. The Ducati was designed around Stoner who has a significantly different style then Rossi. With Stoner's input the Ducati was run into the ground with help of Ducati management stubborness for not changing and underestimating the other factories ever increasing improvements. Rossi had to ride the mess developed over the past several years in his 1st year with them to convince management of a dire change. That started in year 2. However as they were essentially doing development in year 2 during races this didn't allow them to be to competitive. I'll give Stoner credit for winning a few races but his overall standings weren't better than Rossi's.
