MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


Flyfishing1: Seems the Audi team are making some progress but what would have happened in Rossi hadn't gone to Ducati???Seem his 2 year stay there did nothing but change the team and get the designer sacked.The guy who was the designer and engineer that last got them wins???? Just my thoughts and opinion
If Rossi hadn't have gone to Ducati, the current riders would have been further down the pecking order. Dovi is a front end rider........much like most other riders. Stoner was not! Rossi's tenure there put the bike on the path to be ridden well by the majority, not the minority (or the singular phenom that is Stoner). To say that he did "nothing" for Ducati is a strong misrepresentation of his time there. Dovi went from a podium-less first season (which was a first for Ducati), to a pretty strong showing his second season (albeit with concessions). It's improving little by little.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez improved, but 2013 more impressive


TrueFan: True that Rossi and Stoner didn't get on - head to head competitors often don't. It's safe to say that Rossi respects Stoner's ability though - especially since his Ducati experience. Similarly with Lorenzo. Rossi was not great with Lorenzo when they were first teammates, but no doubt when Lorenzo chose not to block Rossi's return to Yamaha, and treated him respectfully, Rossi learned something. He never says a bad word about Lorenzo these days. Even champions can learn lessons. Rossi has learned new riding techniques over the last couple of years, and a few life lessons. He's richer for it all, and it has all contributed to his resurgence.
I can't help but agree here.

MotoGP » Marc VDS Honda MotoGP deal official


reinmacre: I know this going to ruffle some tail feathers but here goes. Now why exactly are we to expect that SR45 is going to be trading paint for rostrum positions any more that PE44 or SB6? Is Scott better than these guy's? If Redding was a truly a generational talent, Repsol would have make room for him(see CS27 today). True, it is great that he will be on a factory, or as close to, a factory spec Honda as one could short of the vaunted Repsol Honda.
SR45 will soon learn that a rostrum finish a factory bike does not make. To me, he's no better than Bradl or an Espargaro. He'll slot in somewhere in the lower half of the top 10, and that'll be that.
