MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


Are all the negative anti-Rossi statements on here coming from Aussies I wonder ? Explains a lot if that is the case. Skywilk....You say that Rossi said that he would win on the Ducati, Can we have your source please ? The 2007 version of the Ducati was NOT a dog, have you forgotten that it won the Championship ? It was the later incarnations that were a dog. Rossi and JB were employed to make the bike more 'rideable' which they certainly achieved (except in Cal's case of course) RFS131...."Truth is Honda has always been the better bike but they haven't had a rider since Rossi to exploit it's potential...until now." Er....Stoner did Ok on a Honda.

It was JBurgess who said the 80% 20% thing, not Rossi. At the time jerry was right, not so much now with how the bikes have evolved. Rossi left Honda because they never give their riders any credit, it was always the bike. Admittedly the 5cyl bike was something special as Rossi said it was like cheating. Others could win on it but no credit was given for the Italian winning the Championship on it. Stoner had exactly the same with Ducati not recognising his talents. They soon found out when Casey smashed them riding a Honda. Where are you guy's getting the information that Rossi is always boasting ?

I feel for guys like Randy Mamola and especially Dani Pedrosa. Capable of beating anyone on their day but the Title somehow eludes them. The 'legend' name will probably, in the future, be applied to Randy more than Dani because of Randy's outgoing persona. Somehow Dani gets overlooked. Check out the all time stats and you'll find that the little man has scored many more podiums than some multiple Title winners ( some with as many as 4! )

MotoGP » 'Special feeling' to beat Marquez, says Pedrosa


Jason Lewis......I agree, that idea makes a bit of sense. If you cut all the rubbish 'cartoon speak', references to his mate S1, and self-aggrandizement, then that is a good post. Shorter races would set the rule makers in a tizzy, tyre problems would be no more, fuel problems would be no more too. The downside would be that the soppy Qually format would throw up winners that might be considered to be not worthy.
