MotoGP » Stoner completes ‘very positive’ Sepang test


You are indeed correct that 07 worried a lot of people, especially the Japanese factories who had been caught with their pants down, going conservative when Ducati turned up with a far more powerful engine and far more advanced traction control system (the number of gyroscopes being an obvious indicator, 2 for ducati, one for Yamaha) that allowed the bike to be ridden, as his team leader said he did, by opening the throttle and trusting the bike (something his team mate who Leary to ride in the top class on 500cc two strokes with no to was unable to get his head around) Fortunately the Japanese factories cottoned on to the to thing and we all know what happened in 2008, 2009, 2010 until the fisherman jumped ship to the

MotoGP » Rossi ‘thinking’ tenth world title


So according to your idea about stoner being better than Rossi, because only years they raced against each other count, then you agree that Rosenberg is a better F1 pilot than Senna, after all, when they raced together Nico finished ahead of Schumacher in the championship more than Schumacher finished ahead of Nico. And during the times that Schumacher and Senna were on the grid Schumacher finished the season ahead of Senna more than Senna finished ahead of Schumacher, ergo Nico Rossberg better than Senna. having said that, I didn't even have to take it back as far as Senna, as it also means that Nico was better than Schumacher. Or maybe consistently being able to secure championships over a long period of time is harder than sporadically over a shorter period, 1/2 for 14 years is somewhat more difficult than 2/7 over 7 years, surely only a fanboy would disagree?

MotoGP » Rossi ‘thinking’ tenth world title


But brain, you said that only the years they raced against each other count. Rosbeg and schuey raced against each other for 3 years, all 3 of those years rosberg beat schuey, therefore according to your own argument that puts Casey ahead of Rossi, nico is better than schuey. (rossenberg was an autocorrect by my iPad) You have said that years other than those where they raced against each other do not count, as you refuse to take rossis earlier years and the time they spent in the lower classes in to account. I'm amazed that you find that difficult to follow brain!

MotoGP » Rossi ‘thinking’ tenth world title


Contd, is it easier to win 2 championships in 7 years or 7 in 13? (or 9 in 17) that would of course make a strike rate of 1 in 2 forRossi over a longer period than the 1 in 3ish for stoner over a shorter period. Again I could go on, but seeing as my initial point was to demonstrate the falacy of your arguments it doesn't really seem worth it, but just for the sake of you "if" game regarding stoner on a Honda for his whole career answer me this, if Rossi had stayed at repsol Honda what do you think would have happened with stoner? We could assume that Honda wouldn't have wanted to bring about the 800s as Rossi would still have been dominating on the v5 990 rcv, I doubt stoner would even have had a look in at the Honda works team, especially after his first year on the privateer Honda. Would Bridgestone have managed to get the solus tyre supplier deal? Again I could go on, but I'm worried that I may irrevocably damage your sensibilities
