There's a kind of widespread view the *only* reason Stoner won the championship is how superb the Ducati is & the reason Valle didn't win the title back was the Yam was utterly naff. Some question marks did Ducati shaft Barros (tho I doubt it ..) But on the same bike Marco & Loris who are by any standard are quite tidy riders haven't exactly dominated. Stoner won cos Stoner's good. If the M1 is sorted too it'll be a good season.

Looks at these times people. Yeah, yeah Stoner was ahead today but, Rossi wasn't far behind. I'm telling you guys, if that Yamaha has increased as far as top speed is concerned, the season won't be the same as it was last year. Rossi is a slugger and slugs it out till the VERY last lap if his bike and tires will permit it. If Yamaha really worked out most of the problems they had last year, Stoner's gonna have to work ALOT harder for his victories. As far as the mental aspect of it all, people can say whatever they want about Stoner's dirtbike past making him "harder" mentally. I'm sure having VALENTINO ROSSI coming for you on a revitalized bike is enough to crack the best of them.
