MotoGP » Date set for Rossi to Yamaha announcement?

Rumour started a few days ago that if Rossi moves to Yamaha then Ducati will want to save face. To do so would mean proving the combination of bike and rider was at fault, not just the bike. They would not publicly attack Rossi. If Dovi and Hayden can't get it on the podium by mid year they will offer Stoner some wildcard rides at tracks he likes, such as Philip Island. Theory being he would show the potential of the bike and might also get the racing bug again. Remember when the Ducati Superbike was being called a nail and the recently retired Bayliss jumped on it and blew the current riders away on test days? Suddenly they lifted their game.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner - Q&A

Commentes...have a look at the credits on the GP500 name is on there as a lead tester for the physics etc....and yes, it still has the best physics of any bike simulator. Some of the best fun I have ever had is racing Kenny Roberts Jnr, his father and half the GP500 field of 1999 when testing it. We sponsored Kenny Jnr during his World Championship year.

MotoGP » Stoner: Lorenzo, Pedrosa are on a different level...

Stoner rides differently than Dani and this had been mentioned by several commentators, Casey himself and his mechanics. Both riders share setup information but Stoner does not load the front tyre as much as Dani and tends to drift the rear a lot more. Dani had less front wheel chatter and is less impacted by rear wheel chatter due to his riding style. Any rear wheel chatter can upset Stoner and he has increased front wheel chatter compared to Dani. Daryl Beattie had explained this phenomena several times and had done a good job of it.

MotoGP » Pedrosa powers to Mugello pole, Lorenzo powerless

What is this fairy tale about ROssi having a faster race pace than Hayden? In the last qualifying he managed 5 sub 1:49's and never got to a sub 1:48. Hayden did 5 sub 1:49's and two of those were sub 1:48. The most laps strung together was six by Rossi and only three of those were below 1:49.5 and no 1:48's. The six laps strung together by Hayden included 4 below 1:49.5 and a single sub 1:49. So where is this mythical advantage that the Rossi fans are wishing into existence? Stoner was struggling and I woud say Rossi's pace was far superior to his.

MotoGP » UPDATED: Petrucci apologises to Stoner

Here we go about rider ethics. Name the only rider currently on the MotoGP grid who had been caught deliberately cheating. I will give you a clue, it involved the cleaning of his grid spot overnight. Who is the only rider on the current grid who has come to physical blows off the track with another rider? Who is the only rider on the current grid who had to pay tens of millions of Euros when caught avoiding tax? The way some people on here speak you would think Stoner had a 666 birthmark.

MotoGP » Stoner blames tyres for 'unimpressive pace'

The complete knobs who say Stoner is moaning must never ever read the answers to the same questions given by any of the other riders. Lorenzo last weekend said "I would have been happy to have finished in third position because today the bike and the rear tire was not so good." Why is this not moaning? The Anti Stoner brigade have issues. You can dislike a rider but the biased crap they type is beyond normal.
