MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


Painless: Makes you wonder doesn't it. What would Rossi or Marquez do on the GP15? Can Dovi take that extra step? In 2011 he had a new team mate in his Honda Repsol Team. That team mate score 10 wins and Dovi none. I hope Dovi can find that bit extra but past performance is a bit worrying.
Well I do wonder how MM would go on the Ducati but already know how Rossi would go ........

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


Stubb: Think they have a bit of wrong agenda because a win will not be a real win unless on equal terms. If they win at Mugello then the if´s will arise. Free development, free testing, free preparation for a specific track. If Yamaha and Honda would have the same ops there is no way Ducati would stand a chance of winning. And this would haunt Ducati forever and ever. Think the should pull the gentlemens agreement and skip the extras and compete on equal terms, then they would be true winners instead of whiners.
Rubbish! some of the other teams have better riders so it's not a level playing field anyway, also some teams use less fair tactics on the track. A win is a win!

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


Guna4699: Rossi was not far off from Stoner with Ducati,, What made the difference is that Ducati started to lose ground even while Stoner was there with them and held no ground by 2011, Now don't compare 2010 Valencia podium by Stoner and next day testing by Rossi on same bike, it's about difference between known devil for CS and unknown demon for VR... Ducati had attitude problem,, it needed a grand scale failure of best crew with best crew chief and rider for Ducati to start thinking about the flaws from their side,, Rossi would always be a better rider than Dovi no matter what bike they ride,
Not sure how many years you have been following MotoGP but On the whole Rossi has finished in front of Dovi this year but Dovi has finished in front of Rossi once so far this year. In 2011 and 2012 Dovi finished well ahead of Rossi, this year so far Rossi is only just ahead of Dovi so I don't think you can say that Rossi would always be a better rider than Dovi no ma

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


CC33: So if vale is a better racer then Dovi how would Dovi finish ahead of him,and wasn't Dovi lost when he first started riding the same P.O.S vale was.You must have a crystal ball to say that vale wouldn't be getting the same or better results on the gp15 as Dovi the guy that could only get one lucky win on the best bike in gps .The only team mate Dovi beat was Cal another neverbeen.
Well how do you think? The reason Dovi finished in front of Rossi in 2011 and 2012 is that Rossi couldn't get to grips with the Ducati - why else?

CC33: nut you must be joking are you saying that if vale was on the duc gp15 with dovi as his team mate dovi would be finishing ahead of vale,if so change the meds your on. you kook
Sadly that is exactly what I am saying, Rossi is a great racer, and yes I think he is a better racer than Dovi but he is not good at riding round problems in the way stoner and I guess to some extent Dovi. If the bike isn't exactly how he likes it he is a bit lost.

Has Rossi had a secret test on the gp15 that nobody else knows about ?
Think you know what I mean here - Dovi was upbeat and going for it as soon as he jumped on the pre gp15 Ducati but Rossi let it get the better of him. I fully acknowledge that Valentino is a fantastic rider with an incredible career and has made a remarkable comeback but doubt he could do anything with the still less than perfect (not Yamaha like ) handling of the Ducati gp15.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


donuts: Garbodp Wow you're right Dovi just needed a bike to suit to suit his strengths. Open Factory Rules strengths that is..... With those strengths (just for Dovi) he would have stomped casey and dani at Repsol.
The only certainty in MotoGP is what has actually occurred. Everyone thought 2011 was going to be between Rossi and Lorenzo - until Rossi had a ride on the Ducati that is.............

CC33: if a Ducati rider wins a race or they win a championship i personally think a huge Asterisk should be put next to rider and factory in the record book.Stoner achieved all his wins and w,c by playing by the rules laid out for all,no help from Dorna needed for C.S like Dovi does.Dovi and Stoner should never ever be compared ones a winner and the other is a neverbeen.
Stoner won the championship on a trellis frame, then got progressively worse, crashing a lot. enough where it soured him I believe. He's took his ball and went home, get over it. oh and shoulda coulda woulda if but. Funny you calling someone a never been. Ever competed in MotoGP? HAH!
This doesn't make a lot of sense - Stoner was awesome and won a championship after his Ducati stint but Dovi is doing really well too!

MotoGP » MotoGP Le Mans - Free Practice (2) Results


Don't like to hear people talking in terms of "x" rider has been a disappointment, there are only so many spots on the podium, the exceptional riders usually on the best bikes with the best teams make it onto the podium but there are no bad riders in MotoGP - think about it - before you criticise others which its so easy to do on this forum - where have you placed in life? Awesome 2nd practice by Smith!
