MotoGP » Rossi: 2002 was biggest change

Yes I agree with last comment to a point, I do not agree that rossi was handed the best tyres all bike for that matter. The Honda RCV211V I believe it was, that was developed by Rossi, all tyres in those days was mainly bought in over night & each & every rider developed tyres, now your not telling Casey never had tyres dropped into to certain races by Bridgestone when they could, I know it was much harder for them being in Japan & Michelin in Europe was alot easier for them to bring in a newly developed tyre. And yes you can not knock any of the riders in the Motogp class, but there really is only 6 that are in with a shout, we all know who they are & Rossi will be there. Not long now I can't wait!

MotoGP » Rossi: 2002 was biggest change

With Rossi being still not at 100% then there will be some time he will get back from that. As many of you on here know Rossi will develop the Ducati into his bike & the haters can put what ever spin on it that you want but it will happen, if it don't then so be it but I would be very surprised that by half way through the season we don't see this bike much easier to ride with Rossi's input. We see this crap posted on here nearly every year about Rossi being finished & Lorenzo, Stoner, this & that. To all you Rossi haters get & look back at the past 10 years, now the facts don't lie, the facts tells the true story. Let's see what happens a few months into the season before that we just don't know for sure what is going to happen.

MotoGP » Rossi: 2002 was biggest change

I think this switch to Ducati is a more difficult switch. Rossi has said he needs to change his riding style to suit the Ducati, he has also stated that the bike has to be ridden with more aggresion, however this is not Rossi's way. He therefore needs to adapt the bike so he can ride it like he wants to, I don't understand that so many on here after 2 test's can be saying that Rossi can't ride the bike, correct me if I'm wrong but is the gap to Lorenzo & Rossi around 0.500 in the last test. I know it maybe 1.800 to casey but the Hondas have a decent edge at the moment & I don't see things quiet like many do on here. Cont..

MotoGP » Rossi returns to his hotel

Rossi will be just fine, who knows he may have to miss Thursday but it's not the end of the world. All of you that seem to think he is faking or what ever you are eluding to, are you for real? I read a post that most of his fans are like Manu fans & once he starts losing he will lose his fans, not a chance, we are not stupid & know full well that he will one day be knocked off his perch. But hey not yet, he's got plenty in the tank yet & you doubters will be amazed & the haters horrified, he will be back up the sharp end come the summer time. Get well soon Vale.

MotoGP » ‘Hard’ Rossi chooses ‘Ducati setting’

This is not a problem, Rossi himself has already stated that it will take him untill May-June to get 100% fit so i don't see any real reason why we have to be concerned with Rossi's pace. Many of you I know just want to mock Rossi & hope he's done with, I know you will just love coming back on here when he comes back strong to admit you was wrong not. Now Casey is proving to be the one to beat & the Honda does look like the bike to be on right now. Now I know us Rossi fans have to be patient & wait for Rossi & Burgess to get this bike right, what alot of you don't seem to understand is what suites Casey don't suit another riders this bike & Rossi will be kicking ass come second half of season.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi just a few tenths away?

Yes Rossi looks bloody awesome on the bike. I was a little surprised that the gap is only just a second off the top, if Rossi is correct about 0.600 reduction due to his shoulder then you get 0.400, now that's not far away is it. For those who say he can't ride it, you really mean you hope he can't ride it don't you. Unfortunatley for you that think like that keep on dreaming, keeping on sucking hard on your dummies cus if you don't they will be spat out when Vale kick's some ass later on in the season. I can guarantee none of you will have the guts to come back on here and post when Rossi starts to dial into this bike & stamps his authority on the field. If he don't then well I will still continue to post on here. next test I think there could be some surprises on the cards.

MotoGP » Rossi upbeat about shoulder, chatter heads 'to do' list

Rossi it seems to me is fairly happy with what Ducati have changed on the bike, from what I'm lead to beleive the bike is alot differant to last year. He is now saying that he now needs to dial himself into the bike, front end chatter is something he will fix & is something that most riders suffer with from time to time. If you listen to him I would have to beleive that he is capable of reducing his lap times by between 1-1.5 seconds once his shoulder is upto full strength. I expect to see a decent improvement at the end of the month if his shoulder has healed more & he can get some muscle built up. Give him time & he will deliver.

MotoGP » Rossi: 150 things to try tomorrow!

Ignore all the negative comments, most of them are from sour posters. We all know the times don't reflect what Rossi is capable of, but not in his current physical condition. As many of you have posted on here that are Rossi haters he's making excuses, well I can't wait to re post on here in the summer & lay into the lot of you, if I said what I really want to I would get banned from this site, also it would be lowering myself to the low level of the brainless idiots on here. My quick rant is over & this is not targeted at the majority who post on here sensibly. Rossi will get quicker & quicker.

MotoGP » ‘Interesting solutions’ found as Ducati test ends

Why don't we all just wait & see what happens when rossi & hayden test's the bike, I'm sure we will get thier views on the bike either way. As for a team not listening to a riders feedback is totaly beyond me, they have to to improve. I beleive that the direction that they are going in will be driven by Rossi, if you lot who profess to know as much as you do about this sport truly know your stuff then you would know full well that when Vale joined Yamaha it was his feedback & Burgess said that if Ducati listen to Vale then they will too have a bike that works how he want's it to. For those of you that doubt Rossi's abilities along with the rest of his team, if they turn this bike into the one to have then surely 3 of them can leave no doubt. But let's just wait & see waht happens.
