@ True fan. I'll accept that. I was referring from 2007 onwards. Got my sums wrong :/
It works both ways though. Ducati were pretty stubborn too. The weakness in the bike was disguised by Stoners brilliance. The fact they needed Rossi to flop on the bike to acknowledge a problem is a failure on Ducati's part. They failed Rossi and Stoner, 2 of the greatest riders ever!
Yeah, Rossi was a flop on the Ducati. It was a massively humbling experience for him, which might actually do him good.
As for Assen being a flash in the pan, I hope not. It is a worry, as it was set up nicely for him to take the win, but he won it convincingly. Only time will tell. Nice to have another winner though too
