MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories


Racing is over so we are reduced to arguing about who was the best rider out of Stoner & Rossi. It is immaterial whether Stoner could get results on the last iteration of the Ducati. Two reasons spring to mind, Casey was well used to the bike and it's foibles, so it is hardly surprising that he got results ( it burnt him out in the process though ). Secondly Rossi wasn't paid to win on it, he and JB were paid to turn the bike into something that anyone could ride, which they did. The anti Rossi brigade would have more credence if they stopped pretending that their animosity is directed at his fans.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: MotoGP 'like sex with pants on!'


Duds23.......Against him I know, but it's his personality that people are commenting on, either way. As I say Jorge doesn't draw comment, and Dani even less. Re the Rossi taking out Casey issue. Unless my memory is letting me down Rossi said that he didn't intend to overtake anyone at that point. When he caught up with Stoner he was travelling slower than he, Rossi, expected. He couldn't brake hard so chose to go up the inside. Whatever is said still a mistake on Rossi's part. Sad for Casey as Rossi nearly got away with it. (he would still have crashed but on his own) Casey's view was that he was going slow because he was biding his time because of the conditions, quite right too. A similar thing happened to Rossi recently when he caught up with Dani. Dani was going slower than expected so Rossi went off the track.
