MotoGP » 2011 MotoGP winter test schedule

I doubt that Valentino will even make the top ten in the first test, I could be wrong & hope I am but I'm simply being realistic about the task in hand that is in front of Valentino. I think the second test in Malyasia will be the test to see if there is a significant improvement in the bike. Most of Valentino's rivals have either stayed put or the likes of Spies have virtualy the same bike. You have Casey who has switched to Honda and was awesome on the much improved Honda. we don't know if Rossi's shoulder is completel repaired either, we will all just have to wait & see, but any proper motogp fan will be like a little kid waiting for a bag of sweets, that seems to take for ever.

MotoGP » Your verdict: MotoGP Rider of the Year (Part 2)

Hmm, I don't agree one little bit that Lorenzo preassure made rossi crash. most of us know the real reason why Rossi did'nt perform as well as he could have this year, it was the shoulder injury that caused it, most of you seem to fail to recognise it, that is your opinions though. Now regarding this poll, it's no surprise to me that Rossi polled the best, if he had been in perfect condition he would have surely been able to fight for the championship, we will never know now. As for Lorenzo, of corse he deserves credit titles don't come easy & you have to ride the bike & get it all set up correctly & sometimes he clearly had better set-ups than Valentino, his other rivals are so inconsistent that he had no competition some races. I would say reading Lorenzo's comments in MCN about forcing rossi to crash & him being even more dominat is abit of a big head, he says he's going to dominate next year too, well let's see if you can back yourself up Jorge. Given that Valentino is on the

MotoGP » Rossi’s 2011 bike up and running

Great, well I would assume there would have been some changes to the geometry of the chassis, the new ducati will have to be more like the Yamaha to allow Rossi to ride it how he likes, as for the rest such as the big bang engine & electronics well Rossi & Co already know exactly what to do with those. The ECU is widely used throughout the paddock, I believe ducati, honda, yamaha all used the ecu very well last year. I think a fully fit Rossi will soon get the Ducati handling exactly how he wants, once development creeps in later on in the season there will be big improvements.

F1 » Abu Dhabi F1 test times: 20 November

We all know how good schumacher really is, not was but still is. I got the impression that he was just getting to grips with everything this year, the car will now have micheals development gone into it too so I would say Mercedes are very lucky indeed. The tyres if Micheal gets on with them will make a massive differance & will mean you can expect to see him at the top again next year, I fully expect a resurgent Schumacher back next year & anyone who thinks he's past it you could well be in for a shock.

MotoGP » Rossi goes under the knife, 90 days to recover

Nice to see many comments on here about Vale. When you read what the surgeon had to say about Vale's condition it realy does make you wonder how he managed to finish the season but we are talking about Valentino Rossi here! The *****s who continue to post dribble about him do so out of jealousy. We will wait & see but don't be surprised guys if Rossi don't just win races next year he wins the friggin title back. It will be nice & I for 1 will be smilling & will be happy for him. I'm backing him all the way.

MotoGP » Rossi goes under the knife, 90 days to recover

Firstl Good luck in your recovery Valentino, us fans are rooting for you so get well soon Champ! Let's just wait untill about half wa through the season, it's going to take a little while for Rossi & co to adapt that bike, yes adapt it because it's not going to be the same bike at all. Anyone who knows Rossi knows what sort of a rider he is & he will not ride the bike like stoner does. I can't wait for him & the team to turn this bike around, this time next year there will be a dramatic change to Ducati bike, it will handle better turn better & will be the bike to be on not just because it's quick, its gonna be because it's developed by 2 genius's. All you haters of Rossi I look forwards to the Day!

MotoGP » Ducati 'must improve' for Rossi to be Rossi

Now comon, most of the real fans know it and so do the Rossi haters, this test proves only 1 thing, Rossi can't ride the bike how it currently is as fast as he wants to or would like to. Now let's just look at some fact's Rossi is still injured and is testing at a track he's not been that quick on, then he has to get to grips with a bike renowned for being a pig of a bike to ride for the first few times. Give him & JB a little time & it will all change, there is no excuses these are real facts. Come next test providing Rossi has fully recovered from the shoulder surgery we should see a big improvement. I aint panacking because I have full confidence in Rossi & Co delivering a WC winning bike.

MotoGP » Yamaha: Rossi can test Ducati at Valencia

Well firstly this is excellent news. To all those of you that seem to hate the idea of Rossi testing the bike, you scared of something? Now the ducati is a good bike & credit has to be given where it's due, Casey has done a good job this year & he's matured alot so hat's off to him, the race on Sunday was clearly a race that was dominated by him & noone could match him. Lorenzo's winning streak ended several races ago & I don't believe he will win many more, Yamaha are going to go backwards from now on. On the subject of road bike's, well all you guys that is supposed to know it all, go and check out the last 7 years of Yamaha Road bikes, especialy check out how much input Rossi has had in development of any of the road bikes, you will see why the sales rose so much. Will ducati benefit from bike sales, you can bet your life on it, especialy if ducati did what Yamaha did & ask for Rossi's input on design. Can't wait for the test. Wish you Luck Vale
