Ducati appear in state of confusion, says Marco Simoncelli

Marco Simoncelli reckons Valentino Rossi and Ducati are in a state of confusion about how to transform the struggling Desmosedici into a consistent podium threat. Rossi has endured a miserable debut season with Ducati and for the first time in his career he faces the prospect of completing a season without a single victory. A vague front-end feeling and understeer issue has...

you did suggest he had some semblance of intelligence. I've read his posts for the last two years. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I know... 1 thread & he's already managed 3 statistical errors & not a single correction, apology or climb down... Gaddafi is a Rossi fan & still has full control of Libya.

the truth

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         2008 Yamaha 10 wins Ducati 6 wins Rossi Champion

2009 Yamaha 10 wins Ducati 4  wins Rossi Champion

2010 Yamaha 11 wins Ducati 3 wins Lorenzo Champion

Does that not show theDucati has been in a terminal decline for the last three seasons? if Stoner hadnt rode with a bin it or win it attitude at the end of 2010 they wouldnt have won any last year. Lorenzo was pacing himself to the title then kicked in the afterburns when it was won.

Try be clever all you like but that bikes design is flawed

So by extrapolation Ducati ought to have around 2 wins in 2011. There's still time, but Nicky is really going to have to pull off something special.

2006 Hayden 2 wins Rossi 5 wins Ros... oh... hang on a minute... Hayden Champion... ?

You haven't got this MotoGP game sorted in your head quite have you... points is what it's about... who finishes with the most points wins... if you finish with more points than you had the previous year it's difficult to say that your motorcycle was in terminal decline (i.e. getting worse) 'cos that would suggest that all of the bikes it was competing against & stolen points off were improving at an even slower pace... what you call declining.

More points against the opposition = improving... yeah?

What about Rossi's finger? That's the real MotoGP story...

Rossi’s broken his finger? I guess that will mean he’ll have even more trouble pulling it out, eh? If you would love a return to the days when real men raced a Grand Prix on the Isle of Man, read ‘Riding Man’! This is a great, true account of an everyman’s dream of racing in the TT. It also covers the history of the TT as the British Grand Prix in detail, and describes the circumstances under which Grand Prix regulars boycotted the TT in the early ‘70s. Suffice to say, back in those days a broken finger was not newsworthy.

Marco and Rossi close friends?

I thought Marco & Vale were good friends? This is the second news article I have read in 24 hours where Marco is passing (negative) comment on Rossi. Is this just how their friendship works or is Rossi starting to push him out now he is a potential MotoGP champion and Marco is responding with criticism to the press?
