So Yama3358 by the same calculation we can determine that Spies is not good enough, nor Simoncelli, as for Bradley or Redding in the lower classes - well we may as well sacrifice them now!
Utter crap - progressive performance is what we are seeing not piss-poor performance.
The 80/20 rule was the old equation that was applied to bike and rider and thats certainly changed as the bikes become more powerful leading to a 90/10 rule. Its no longer the machine that maketh the man, its the rider and team that make the machine... the Duke has problems (5 front end crashes) the team are working to sort it rather than look backwards and say 'well it has won therefore it still should'.
Stoner fought a declining Ducati over the last 4 years to rack up race wins, transferred to 'onda and is at ease on a bike that lets him work to go forwards, not struggle to stay upright. Spies moved from the B team to the A team and is adapting to the new steed, slowly and progressively. Rossi from the multi-championship winning Yam to the beastie and has had to work hard to understand the bike and how it works before adapting. Very few teams transfer to a new marque and win off the bat, the last was Stoner to a sorted Honda, before that it was Bayliss and the final 1000 Duke, and before that Rossi to Yam.
Rossi's mystique is shattered after a few tough races?
Remember how upset Rossi made Stoner/Lorenzo/Pedrosa/Gibernau with a few words and close moves.
It takes years to build a reputation and seconds to destroy it - yet Rossi, the mythical prancing pixie he is, still manages to stuff it up the inside at Catalunya, Laguna seca and destroy the calm of those around him. Stoner is already mentally broken, Lorenzo has shown his vunerability to a few harsh moves and I am sure a little later this year he will bemoan Rossi for being to close/harsh/tough blah blah.
Not good enough..? In this season the best is yet to come...
