Casey Stoner quickest, Valentino Rossi 15th in Valencia test

Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi could not have enjoyed more differing fortunes on the second day of MotoGP testing in Valencia today. Aussie Stoner enjoyed a sensational second day for Honda while Italian Rossi performed well below expectations as he tried to evaluate two new engines for the Bologna factory. Stoner logged a best time of 1.32.066 on the final day of testing...

You are confusing the calendar with available testing time.  As has been said many times already - there is VERY LIMITED TESTING now.  Same reason (one of several anyway) that Rossi could NOT ride the Ducati when you suggested. 

As to Rossie being the best at front end washouts, that is some dry sense of humour you have there ...

Personally, I think Rossi (and possibly JB now) may just be the only person who has any idea how good a rider Stoner really is.

Did anyone else see Pedrosa's post testing comment that they need to improve the smoothness of the engine delivery still?  Hmmm, given Stoner's 'glass smooth' comment.  Can the 2011 spec really be that mush 'worse'?

First Race

Think Minty Fresh pointed out that we won't know for sure whats happning and what will happen till the first race at Qatar in 2011.

We know that Duke does well over there. This year we had Stoner claiming Pole, and had a runaway race, till he crashed, and Hayden was so so close to the 3rd position on the podium.

So from looking at that and also Stoners record, we can clearly say that the Duke works well over there. Even without Stoner. So I am not counting out Rossi at all. With his talent, his team, and Duke, its not going to be a disaster. We just have to wait see for that first race.

The ads are a distraction!

But its interesting to note Biaggi went faster on the Honda than VR on the Yam. Shows the Honda is the everyman package yet it still takes a greater talent than simply fast test times to win the championship

Max Biaggi (Hon) - 2m 02.585s
Val. Rossi (Yam) - 2m 02.75

regards stoner and rossi fans who seem to disagree with each other,


not too many people doubt stoners talents, it's his bad attitude to the motogp fans.

And the fact he always moans, this year as much as any.

oh and when i asked why he did not attend the day of champions auction or the saturday night interview at silverstone, i was told cause we the british boo him....ah that enough a reason not to help a charity like day of champions riders who auction stuff off do..??

what a load of crock

my god do some people follow motorsport.always 06 stoner fell off do you remember he was on michelins not bridgestones! isnt the guy allowed to have a rookie season? even the great rossi MOANED about them in 07.o yes 07 the super fast missile in red..noboby seems to have a problem with the yamahas in 08 to 2010 winning by a mile.back to this year yes casey was falling sure everyone has read the other thread about ducati doing what vale wants and guess what the front end is the problem! livio suppo knows what was going on behind the scenes at ducati thats why he left and basically has taken stoner with him he has done the ground work for a year for casey to join.why has stoner got a bad attitude at least he made the effort after the testing to speak to the press.not have a pit crew do it for him.and the brits act like assholes why should he stand there and get slagged off wheres the charity in brits for doing that.he plays his part like the rest of the riders dont try and put a downer on him with the charity part.

I say these things not to dis him about charity work which im sure he does, but as a geniune motogp fan i want to hear his side of things and see him up there doing his bit, christ i might even get to respect the guy.

Lorenzo has took some stick on here for one thing or another even by me for his arrogance at times.

but hats of he was great at silverstone he was good with at the day of champions and right over the weekend.

Too much to ask?

Much is being made of the last time Rossi switched manufacturers and won th Championship, but the circumstances bear no similarity. In 2003, Rossi was a world apart, at his peak at 24 years old, over a fragile Gibernau and fading Biaggi, winning the title by 80 points. And the 4 strokes still in a fairly early stage of development. 

Fast forward 7 years, forced to move (or face the prospect of not being the no.1 rider in the garage) 32 years old, had the worst injury of his top flight career, and facing a grid with a depth of talent and ambition not seen for many years.

Can't help feeling that this is gonna be a bridge toooooo far.

All credit to Stoner for riding the wheels off the Ducati and getting bugger all credit,, perhaps he wasn't moaning enough to get the changes he needed!
