MotoGP » Stoner: We can still improve the bike quite a bit

@wosideg Remember this classic from Rossi in 2010? "Stoner does not make the same effort as Lorenzo and Pedrosa, he does one lap out and comes back in. You can never tell what the bike is able to do over the distance. It's hard to judge the potential of Ducati because Stoner is not riding it hard enough" That Rossi rubbish, the same rubbish you speak about was put to bed in 2011. Maybe you know Stoner better than his Honda boss who said.. "... he's always sensitive, very aware and able to take extreme care over the smallest details. In fact, this causes a huge amount of work for us, responding to every little thing he points out. But every time we do, the result is clear, he gets better times from the bike. It's all worth it, this is the kind of rider we like."

MotoGP » Ben Spies: 'Scary' Stoner can be beaten

In another tweet, he (Rossi) posted a tweet to Ducati, saying "Thanks for the wishes, this year we'll uphold the honor and name of Bologna of Ducati around the world!" - From MotoGP website Posted by RJ46 - Unregistered (30 minutes ago) -------------------------------- Impossible, Rossi flushed Ducati's reputation and the honor Stoner built down the toilet in 2011. It was embarassing and humiliating to Ducati on a massive scale. However, the fact is, through sheer arrogance, Rossi burnt his bridges with Honda and Yamaha - there is nowhere else for him to go in MotoGP other than suck up to Ducati and hope for another 2 years contract after 2012.

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner, Lorenzo ahead but podium possible

You have to think Rossi fancies his chances at a win or two this season. I think he's trying to keep expectations low and deliver high rather than the opposite to avoid another disappointment like 2011. It'll be a long season, all it takes is for a mistake or a little bad luck to happen to someone leading and Rossi could be in for a win. These guys are so competitive, even Stoner on the dog of the Ducati truly believed he could win every race on that bike. I think Rossi has the same self-belief, but he's not expressing it so outwardly now, just in case it comes back to haunt him. He's probably learnt a thing or two about humility since his move to Ducati.

MotoGP » Cyber war? Repsol Honda compare Stoner, Rossi stats

Classic:) Rossi replied "compare the first 5 seasons". Well Rossi, you forgot Stoner's first year was on the firebreathing satellite LCR machine (i.e worst bike on the grid), then 4x years on the Ducati. Rossi spent those five years fighting Stoner using the best bike on the planet - the Yamaha M1. Please Rossi, don't embarass yourself... HRC could reply with "Compare Stoner's first year at Ducati to Rossi's first Ducati year". Then it'd be Stoner 1st....daylight second Rossi.

MotoGP » Ducati turns the corner with new GP12

Rossi won LS2008. Nothing will change that. It's the manner in which he won which is dubious - taking short cuts and pushing your opponent almost into the gravel in doing so is blatantly shady. It is nothing to be proud of. But I guess Rossi really needed to resort to such tactics, there was no way he could have won that day. Hats off to Stoner, he was upset but accepted the result like a professional If they swapped bikes that day, Rossi would have been luck to be within 60 seconds of Stoner.
