MotoGP » Dovizioso: Marquez was much faster

Rossi did not give up. He crashed his brains out in his first year when he did try. When he and JB realised they couldn't tune out the problems, no promised upgrades came, and those that did didn't work, and Rossi over riding didn't work either it was decided to keep safe and ride within limits. Rossi still managed to finish above is very Ducati experienced team mate both years. When Ducati and various new rules ruined the bike after 2008 even Casey couldn't ride it without huge risks taken as his frequent no-scores proved. Stoner himself, his fans, his detractors, and his team have no idea how he managed so many podiums (including wins) on the later versions of the bike. (only Crash posters have an inkling of what was needed on that pos )

MotoGP » Crutchlow: If we can alter my bike we’ll get results

mrfill......Will they lose Engine development ? As you say that will finish them, it was the real reason that they went 'open'. They didn't have a fuel problem before, and the soft tyre doesn't give them much advantage other than in Qually. Those in the know (not us on Crash:) ) say that they need an engine change so they can mount it in the frame differently. As you know the present configuration doesn't allow them to 'tune out' the understeer, and the electronics have stopped Casey's rear wheel steering method.

MotoGP » ‘Scared’ Lorenzo haunted by Assen injury

therealDave "No one has suggested that VR at 35.........." I have trD....more than once. The team mate is always but always in a riders head. (Sheene's team mates used get it hard if they were a threat). Last season must have been hard to take for Jorge and over the winter must have played on his mind. Then in testing, suddenly Rossi puts his head over the parapet. Must have played a part in Lozzer's early form, and a bad start to anything can compound very quickly. Jorge will be back, no doubt, but at what level ?
