MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner 'started to hate me' after Laguna 2008

I think Rossi has been paid by Crash to make this comment coming into the looonnnggg offseason. As for Laguna I will always be convinced that Rossi knew the Duc had better acceleration and general grunt but poorer handling and went to frustrate Stoner's ability to use that trump card. I for one felt the corkscrew was a bit dodgy but it is line ball and as others have pointed out it was lap two and Stoner was right up him coming out of it. As was shown this year by Pedrosa no less, if you can stay with Stoner (not a mean feat) and pass him continually he has a tendency to lose it. The parallels are also intersting as he spat the dummy on both ocassions. Great rider, petulant and doesn't like handle bar to handle bar. I look on with great interest at his V8 Supercar debut (the paddock will have little tolerance for this attitude).

MotoGP » Marquez 'consistent and strong' as Sepang test ends

Look even if he has flashes of brilliance this year it will be good. As per Monza I don't think Rossi has lost it if anything he feels he has something to prove after 2 years at Duc and seeing the results of their test he must be happy with his decision. Equally he has come out in support of MM riding style (i.e. non-puszy)which will be a welcome change from Casey. I think it will be a cracker season, however I have said that the last two years (optimist).

MotoGP » Preziosi replaced in Ducati shake-up

People talk about Stoner being the only one capable of riding the Duc and that is true to an extent but I think his final year with 5 DNFs and 3 wins shows that Rossi was on a bike going backwards and that even under Stoner with the Yam and Honda making further major advances that wins even under Stoner would be unlikely particularly in 2012. Rossi tried to turn that ship around but with races being essentially testing on the fly he had no chance. Would Stoner have done better in 2012 on the Duc compared to Rossi possibly due in particularly to Rossi's reliance on a planted front. But I think the gap in terms of wins/podiums would not have been as great as people make out.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez on the pace in first MotoGP test

I am just happy he is here because he rides aggressively which will piss off the likes of Jorge and Casey if he had stayed. He also likes to battle. Reminds me of someone else. No more namby pamby I like to ride alone. The greatest battles this year were supplied by Pedrosa so I look to him next year as well. And as for Rossi a WC hmmm difficult but wins yes and already stated that he likes Marquez aggressive style. Either way next year looks to me more interesting than this and what's more no Casey, which can only be a positive though he did give so much of himself back to the sport (cough cough)...

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'It will be a strange weekend'

People always go on about the two seconds slower on the same bike. The bike was completely foreign to him of course he was slower. And as for testing showing how things would be. The ducati barely changed all the others were bringing in completely new designs. I still maintain that following the trend Stoner's wins on the Ducati would have diminished further (to zero in 2012) as Honda and Yamaha made an even bigger leap over Duc than in the 800cc era since 2007, and his DNFs increased and resulting in similar WC EOY positions in 2011 and 12 like Rossi. I think Rossi probably dogged it a bit in 2012 especially but seeing things like Laguna this year, and Sic in 2011 probably left him thinking is this worth injuring myself over and I think most agree that Duc had the starts align in 2007 and will never see that again unless they get outside help.

MotoGP » Rossi puts boot into 'boring' MotoGP

Stoner: "the racing is boring" = I love his raw honesty... Stoner always tells it like it is... Rossi: "the racing is boring" = he only says it because he is losing, Rossi is a ****** etc etc. If you take Rossi out of the equation is the racing exciting. And by that I mean say in 2012 Rossi was not racing at all. And so it is just Jorge, Pedro and Stoner, would the statement not still ring true. Moto3 and 2 are more exciting to watch, equally see Marquez could have just rolled around and collected points or put up his hand no raced to win, crashed and got zero points. Stavros, if you cannot see that despite the changes to the bike in 2011-12 that the Ducati of 2007 had advantages and was closer to or above parity with the other machines compared to now so the statement is hollow, yes would Stoner have wins in 2011, yes but far less than even the previous hot laps do not mean wins. I predict he would have had one win 2011 and none in 2012.

MotoGP » Lucky escape for Lorenzo

@Fraud But as a few have pointed out who are we kidding he picked a soft tyre and yes Stoner was going to be passed him and suddenly the flags are out, and yes he was slowing down greatly so maybe fourth. Suddenly the WC is not a shoe in. Poor Dani, as a few have said the real 2012 WC including getting the better of Stoner. Also strange words from Stoner felt like not even taking part otherwise my season is over as he simply wants to be healthy for PI.
