MotoGP » Runner-up Rossi: That was for Super Sic

Finally we see some improvement, you could see that Rossi was able to ride the bike in this race. If you check you will be able to see that this is the first proper Rossi requested updates, whilst they have come late in the year it is obvious that they have had the desired effect. If only ducati had delivered what rossi & burgess had asked for before they just might have been able to retain the services of Rossi & burgess and the crew. Let's hope that the results are kept up until the end of the season. It looks as if Dovi may well inherit a much better Ducati than we all thought he would for next year. Well done Rossi and his crew & Ducati, well deserved result.

F1 » Ferrari 'must have winning car in Texas'

it is Ferrari that is going to cost themselves the title for under performing in development. Had Alonso had a car that was capable of qualifying up the sharp end every race then alonso would easily still be in the lead in the WC as I think there would have been 1 less accident at least he would have been dragged into. Anyway ferrari don't seem capable of keeping up with the relentless development that Red Bull seem to be able to bring. I wish I was wrong, if Alonso had a car like the red bull he would have wrapped up the WC ages ago as he is easily the best in F1 at the moment.

MotoGP » Rossi: Seventh was best I could expect

it is very silly the comments on here about rossi, he will be competetive next year & I think he will win races next year too. There are many jealous posters on here who just love bashing Rossi. Before you who do it just wait and see shall we what happens next year. Congratulations to Lorenzo, he's done everything right this year and has learned from the doctor himself.

F1 » Alonso: We need something more significant

Alonso is right, I mean a driver needs the car underneath him in order to deliver the results, this year more than ever qualifying up front is paramount. Ferrari have clearly not developed the car as good as red bull have and it's showing, I think Ferrari have thrown the title away as they simply do not keep apace with red bull & Mclaren, I'm a Ferrrari fan so it's not good. Unless Ferrari can deliver a big upgrade which gives Alonso a 2-3 tenths per lap advantage then vettel will be champion.

F1 » Ferrari on back foot after 'cruel blow' for Alonso

as a Ferrari fan I must say that I'm disappointed that Ferrari have failed to keep up with redbull, if he was further up the grid then the mistakes and crashes would have possibly been avoided. Ferrari you seem to have lost your way and don't seem to be able to develop the car like you used to. I feel certain that unless they are capable of some very big upgrades now in the next race Alonso will not keep pace with vettel.

MotoGP » Hayden likes latest parts, Rossi another swingarm

For those of you that say Ducati spent millions on new stuff, you are right! What a pity up until this latest upgrade which is totally what rossi & co asked for they ignored him & burgess and provided what they thought was right. If you read Prezzi's statement about 2 months ago he stated the next big upgrade would be based soley on what valentino asks for and nothing else, this was after a barrage of complaints. So for those of you that were sure that rossi has not developed the bike I would think again, and one thing seems certain he has not finished yet.

MotoGP » Rossi happier with 'faster than normal' Ducati

@ Morgue where ya been? Yes good qualifying today, there seems to be some change here as the set-ups getting a little better session by session, when the soft goes in there is a little improvement too so that is better. Morgue what's your feeling on Rossi going back to his M1? I think it will be great, alot may disagree with me but within a few test's I expect Mr Rossi to be back where we expect him to be. He will win next year and also take some poles, 2014 I think he could win back the WC.

MotoGP » Stoner: Rossi has 'done nothing but complain'

I like many was not surprised of this as it was a well known fact Honda had thrown everything at the 2011 bike to win the last season in the 800cc era, it worked and Casey was virtually un stoppable, again he had to ride it and credit due where it's due. Casey was fast & I enjoyed watching him. Now let's look at rossi, in his last race for Yamaha he was in touch and as fast as most of the aliens, he then get's his hands on the Ducati & is 1.6 seconds I think it was off the pace, then continues in this way all year, there is no way Rossi has suddenly lost 1.6 seconds, maybe Casey you can go and put Valentino right seeing as you are so quick to put him down. Just about every bad race this year you have had you have blamed the bike so just like Valentino you blame your equipment, and rightly so unless there is something else preventing you and him from being at the front. Why on earth Casey likes to put Rossi down like this is beyond me but there you are. I'm sure it's only a matter

MotoGP » Stoner: Rossi has 'done nothing but complain'

Casey has done well, he has won 2 WC, on 2 different bikes, but do we put that down to his ability to develop a bike or his ability to ride anything. Well look at the facts, in 2007 when he won the WC he won on a bike much faster than anything on the grid, also the bridgestones was a much better tyre, so he won on a much better machine that he was able to take advantage of, he still had to ride it though so credit where it's due. Then in 2011 he moves to Honda having failed to win a WC for past 2 years, in fact the wins was getting harder to achieve and was going down, also he was himself commenting about Ducati's lack of development, he then swings his legs over the Honda and is immediatley fastest. cont..

MotoGP » Stoner: Rossi has 'done nothing but complain'

It may be partly true, however casey has not been there for 2 years has he so I think it's a little unfair to put it like he has. Anyway it don't really matter what Casey says, when Rossi was on a competitive bike he whipped stoner's a$$ most of the time. I'm sure that Rossi himself does not like the fact he has not been able to do things with the ducati like he did with Honda, Yamaha. Also Casey, yea Rossi may like a bike to be right before he risks riding the thing to the max, but no one can deny that he developed the Yamaha, unlike you that went to Ducati and won on a very fast bike, then went to Honda and won on it already developed, nothing to do with him was it.
