MotoGP » Casey Stoner tests 2013, 2014 Honda machinery


Why do the Rossi fans hate Stoner? After all he does not have nine championships, as they constantly remind us, so why should they care? It is because of Rossi's performance on the Ducati, or should I say lack of performance on the Ducati. Do you really believe that if Rossi and Stoner swapped bikes at Laguna Seca in 2008 that Rossi would have had any chance at all? Deep down, the Rossi fans know the truth and that is why they always say "9 championships" because they have nothing else to say.

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.
