Le Mans MotoGP: Valentino Rossi revels in first Ducati podium

Valentino Rossi toasted his first Ducati podium in Le Mans yesterday after the Italian finished the French MotoGP race in third position. The 32-year-old just failed to defeat compatriot Andrea Dovizioso for the second successive race, but Rossi was still jubilant to show the increasing potential of the factory GP11 machine. Using a new carbon fibre frame he first tested in Estoril...

Back to 2010 are we ? its 2011 mate, and Casey has taken 2 wins out of 4. Deal with it. But hey its not Stoner riding the bike isit, no its being controlled remotely by the honda bosses right ? He won by 15 seconds, due to HIS skill. stop bitching about him having the best bike, Rossi has had the best bike for most of his career.

Fact is, he dominated in 2007 and whilst he made mistakes and hasn't won since his outright speed has never gone away. He's won a good few races since his title year. If you wish to talk stats, remind me of the win count in the 800 era? Not bad I think you'll find for someone who you seem to think has cracked.

Riding the more compliant Honda just as hard as the fickle Ducati, the result is what we saw yesterday. Get used to it, I think we might be seeing a lot more of this.

Okay, lets talk stats...

Stoner's wins

2007 = 10 wins - 1st - 0 DNF

2008 = 6 wins - 2nd - 2 DNF

2009 = 4 wins - 4th - Sick 3 races?? DNS (crashed on warm up lap)

2010 = 3 wins - 4th - 5 DNF

So from what i can see, he dominated on the 'sorted' Ducati in 2007 then went backwards every year after... Yes he has won the most 800cc races but the majority were in the first year of the class! So basically when the other teams caught up and closed the gap on Ducati's advantage we then saw where his real level was. Also, it is all well and good winning the most races in an era but it really comes down to who win's the most championships as that is what counts at the end of the day...

Don't bother mate, you wont come across 1 Rossi fan who doesn't bring up the past because they don't like whats happening in the current season. pathetic losers. All i've seen since Lemans is 'wow that honda has dominated' no fellas, Stoner has dominated, deal with it and move on.

Actually

why would anyone need to mention 2007 when he's on form like this ? He'd be leading the championship if it weren't for some muppet taking him out, oh sorry i mean the honda would be winning. As Casey just sits on the bike as it goes round right ? haha idiots, Rossi is on a race winning bike and at best can manage 3rd through nothing but luck.

Minty Fresh.....

Okay, so another good thing with stats is you can interpret them anyway you wish to support an opinion.

So you clearly wish to ignore the fact that Casey has won the most races and draw attention instead to titles. As it stands, Valentino has two, Casey and Jorge one each. On current form, I'd say there is a fair chance that one of those may be on two wins come season's end. Now it's my feeling that Casey is in with a very strong shout of adding to the title tally. With that, there will doubtless be more wins. So as the 800 era closes and you wish to look at the stats, if Valentino and Casey are level with two titles each, we must look to the race wins...... What would that tell us? That Casey was super talented, won on two completely diffferent bikes and was a double champion. Time will tell if this is the case.

Tell me, how was the 'Ducati' anymore sorted in the first year of 800's than any other? Granted they made a great motorcycle, but they had the same opportunity to do so as the competition. Casey just happened to ride it extremely well from the start and the rest is history. How does Casey and Ducati's championship differ from the first MotoGP year when Valentino won on the superior 'sorted' Honda? Rossi won as he pleased with little competition, by the time the bike was handed to a fast rival in Barros, the season was effectively over.

It's also funny to read your comment about it's all well and good winning races but it's championship's that count. Funny as Wayne Rainey's three titles never found him the popularity enjoyed by the multi race winning one time champion Kevin Schwantz.

The fact remains, Casey Stoner is a seriously talented motorcycle racer. In my opinion, arguably the fastest guy around. You don't have to like him, just accept it.......it'll save the bitter taste come season's end!
