MotoGP » POLL: Valentino Rossi - Ducati or Yamaha?

He'll go back to Yamaha unless Ducati do an absolutely stunning PR job for next year's bike. The main difference between Stoner and Rossi on the Duke is that Stoner was young enough, and bloody-minded enough, to ride the hell out of it, crashing if he went over the edge. Rossi (who was no stranger to kissing the tarmac too, in the very early years, remember) joined Ducati at the other end of his career and wasn't prepared to ride like that. Instead, he thought he could tweak a few things here and there and presto, a winning bike. We can all see how that turned out. Don't forget, also, that in a sport struggling for sponsors, Rossi is still the main draw. Yamaha could use a hand on that front. Of course, as an Englishman, I'd rather see Cal on the Yamaha, but that ain't happening - he doesn't bring enough cash with him, I imagine.

MotoGP » Stoner still uncertain of fitness

I remember in Qatar Moody and Ryder going nuts and basically claiming that it's the limited number of quick laps on the Friday and Saturday that causes Stoner's arm pump. I think his "came on lap 4" comment was probably for the benefit of those 2, and those with a similar view. Me, I figure that a 2x world champ, racing 16+ races a year knows what he's doing, but what do I know :)
