Valentino Rossi: “Some big problems remain.”

Valentino Rossi admitted Ducati still has to make huge improvements to its new GP12 1000cc bike after he made his long-awaited public debut on a new twin spar aluminium chassis in Valencia today. The nine-times world champion completed 71 laps on the new frame, which Ducati hopes will give Rossi and team-mate Nicky Hayden more front-end feeling. He set a best time...

Stoner and Ducati.

He didn't always lose the front end of his bike he only left Ducati because of the fact they were not going forward instead they were going backwards and not listening to anything what he said. The fact of the matter is IMO Ducati will never be a winner even with Rossi on it thats the way I see things the Japanese well and truly have their number.

Rossi moves to Suzuki! there is a vacancy there and I think he would do better there .we are talking about when Stoner was with Ducati and how Rossi cant make the bike work for him but the fact is that Ducati went very radical and it didnt pay off .They will be playing catch up for quite a while to come which is sad for the fans as there are not many bikes left on the grid to challenge Honda.

rossi is done

Seriously, I believe the only thing we'll be hearing until his retirement will be excuses. Yesterday it was the carbon, today it is the cylinder angle, tomorrow it will be something else. In reality there are at least 3 or 4 guys who are faster than him now. And there are at least 7 or 8 guys who are willing to risk more than him now. I'd be genuinely surprised if Rossi managed to grab another win ever.

It's not looking good at the moment for Ducati. The new frame will help with absorbing some of the vibrations and helping settle down the suspension, but it will take some doing to get the bike onto the podium any time soon. The current frame is the one they should have gone with from 2009.

So

 

The Dainty Slender Milky boy gets 3 wins and people say, "Your quite right, the duke is a shit bike, mind you at the end of 2010 it was a winner". Yet Milky quit the Company that give him his break 2 months into the 2010 season, leaving a winning bike. WOW.

The Milky brigade will contradict themselves beyond comprehension to say dainty boy was good on the CF bike, but the fact was he could have never won a World Championship on it. When slender boy quit, his brigade wasted no time shooting Elvis Presley and Ducati down.

Now Rossi and company are there, they have shifted their sight from Presley and Ducati to blame and ridicule Rossi. LMAO.

Good luck next year Milky boy, too bad you could not beat your 800cc QP time on the 1000cc bike, but your team mate whooped your ass and that QP time too.

"The Milky brigade will contradict themselves beyond comprehension to say dainty boy was good on the CF bike, but the fact was he could have never won a World Championship on it."

I think the Milky Brigade (?) are just quoting Mr Burgess, but then what does he know eh? You're obviously far better informed.

Dream World.

         Some BIG problems remain-Valentino Rossi.  VR used to be agreat rider ,no question,Agostini was the Greatest { if number of titles is your measure of greatness}, Angel Nieto was great too.But in all honesty it kind of depends on who your competetion was and how good your machinery was in comparison to your rivals. Everyone has their own opinion on who was and who is the best. Thats the way of the world unless you live in China or Burma etc etc. But everyone {eventually},has to face facts, if Ducati had not tried to woo JL while CS was off sick and if they had spent a quarter of the time or money they have since VR joined, Stoner would probably still be winning on a Ducati. Can you imagine what a team with VR and CS on Dukes would have been like! I can, it would have been like Rossi and Edwards , with a wall down the garage. Here is a list,{ MY LIST}, of THE GREATEST riders of all time. 1st-Saarinen 2nd- Stoner 3rd-Lawson 4th-Rainey 5th-Schwantz 6th- Rossi 7th- Read 8th-Hailwood 9th-Doohan and 10th-M.Duhamel.     LET THE ARGUEMENTS BEGIN.

The money that Ducati have spent on development is absolutely nothing compared to what Honda have spent to get their 'winning' bike. They went through 20 different frames to get where they are today. So you can't say that Ducati have been exactly over doing it.

Money Spent.

         Honda are 140 times bigger than Ducati, { financially}, and I don`t  think  they saved that much by ignoring Stoners requests for up-dates.
