MotoGP » Rossi struggles to 11th in Assen qualifying

Some posters feel that Rossi has made his bed and now must lie in it. Since missing out on 2006 to Hayden, and 2007 to Stoner, Rossi has appeared less than the polished media star that he was. He complained that Stoner had Bridgestone tyres, and in 2008 actually used Bridgestones while being sponsored by Michelin. He told Yamaha that he didnt want Stoner as a teammate. He refused to share data with Lorenzo, and the wall put-up between them, wasn't removed when the both used the same brand tyres. (I know Doohan didn't like sharing data when he was winning, but when you get other riders data earlier in your career, then its only fair to share) He gave Yamaha the ultimatum, and they chose Lorenzo over him. He saw Stoner was winning on the Ducati, and thought he could do better, especially as Stoner didn't seem to be seemed at 100% or put in many laps in practice.
