No show "Stoner gets what he wants from Honda and the only people who doubt his talent is Rossi lovers and no one gives a shit about there bigoted opinions".
It is nothing to do with favouritism or bigotry, it is about stats.
Since 2001 when Stoner started, Rossi has one 7 world titles, Stoner.....1.
Rossi: 9 world titles in 5 classes on 5 different bikes, 174 podium finishes, 4359 points.
Stoner 1 world title in one class one 1 bike, 75 podiums, 2066 points thus far. However with about another four years at his prime how well can he do in the future. When Stoners gets to number 3 or 2 in the stats behind Rossi we correctly believe he is a trully great competitor. Unitl then he is a good motogp rider who leads from the front, not good dicing it with others and not much good at development either and he whinges.
Seems to me Rossi and Burgess are turning the Ducati philosophy round to take a bike the rider has to change his riding style to, to a bike that can be set up for different riders, as per the Hhhhhonda and the Yamhahaha, which can be set up to suit four different H riders and 2 different Yam riders. Brave move.
