MotoGP » Rossi: We tried everything for home podium

IMHO Rossi brakes deeper than anyone else not later. To do that you need a from tyre with a strong carcass. The one that was taken away by Bridgestone as a knee jerk reaction to of a string of cold races in Europe. Stoner objected the most at the time and was labelled a 'moaner' as always. Rossi cannot ride his to trademark strengths, and so another top rider is hamstrung by the one tyre fits all rule.

MotoGP » Hayden: Carbon frame had a lot of potential

Well DB8 Maybe you are self employed, but for the rest of the world who have to work for someone else there is politics. Nicky is no different. I am sure that he gave his feedback, and I am sure that it was ignored. Can you imagine what would have happened if Hayden came out and said that Rossi was sending Ducati down the wrong path? The yellow panty brigade would have crucified him.

MotoGP » Hayden: Carbon frame had a lot of potential

@ Guna4699 "Nicky is the reference point,, he always had results with Ducati like he has this season,, always around 7-9 . . . " Really? In 2010, excluding DNFs, Nicky had an average finish of 5.6, That included one podium and 5 4th places. So your statement is completely false. If Nicky Hayden, the most experience Ducati rider in MotoGP, says that the bike he rode at Jerez was fast, and he did the lap times to prove it then case closed.

MotoGP » Hayden: Carbon frame had a lot of potential

@ducati999s The Honda is also a 90 Degree V4. This old wives tale is like the 'Stoner only won because he used the most traction control''. It is not possible to do that lap time on a lemon. There is no 'one lap wonder' or any other excuse to discredit what was done on that bike. To say that the Ducati is good now because no one is losing the front end is nonsense. If Stoner rode around for 6th place then he would not have fallen off either.

MotoGP » Bridgestone delays new MotoGP tyre debut

Another issue that is seriously overlooked is that alternative front end designs need a completely different tyre. SuspensionSmith, who posts on the PB forum, found that his girder front end, like the Britten, cannot get enough heat into a standard tyre. This complaint has been echoed by others using hub centre steering. So the whole 'prototype' notion is just a farce, and the control tyre is outright stupidity.

MotoGP » Video: Casey Stoner testing Honda MotoGP bike

Hey where is the post about Rossi being a 9 time world champion and Stoner only has two? Oh here, let me do it. Once upon a time Rossi won 9 world championships. This is a good thing and one would wonder why then do the Rossi fans feel the need to attack Stoner? Well it comes from the fact that, head to head, Stoner beat Rossi more than Rossi beat Stoner, and to really rub salt into the wound a lot of that occurred while Stoner was on the Ducati aka "Destroyer of Careers". Then came the ultimate humiliation when the great one jumped ship to Ducati to show them all who is really boss, but what followed is best described as a farce.
