Poll: What should Rossi do?

It's not going well for the Italian legend this year. Seventh at the Portuguese MotoGP is his best result so far and rumours of retirement persist in the media. If you were Rossi, what would you do now? pollcomment

So he did

Slipped my mind. A win then. At least. Given that nicki has already said it's the best bike he's had from ducati, that responds in a logical manner to setting adjustments you'd have to assume he's on track to fulfill the brief in the respect of helping to create a bike that others can win on *edited for clarity*

Rossi didn't want to pay Jorge's wages IIRC

Rossi was still capable of beating Lorenzo up to and after his accident at Mugello. Wasn't a major factor in Rossi deciding to leave Yamaha that they wanted Rossi to take a pay cut so Jorge got a pay rise? Pretty sure that the money in question was money that Yamaha's ex-sponsor Fiat had brought to the team. Not sure too many people at the top of their game would swallow that TBH.

" If Rossi walks from Ducati I will consider him a coward and a quitter. He made the choice to leave Yamaha he said for a new challenge."

Personally, I don't think Ducati can produce a bike that's the equal of Honda or Yamaha. How ever Mr VR must takes a small percentage of the blame. I hope he goes on to form his own team managed by JB..even though I can't see it happening because its hell of a lot of work and ambition to achieve in between seasons.

Can't see JB managing or wanting to manage a team, he's a mechanic. Regardless of what Rossi does, I wouldn't be surprised to see JB retire and go back home to spend more time with his wife at the end of this season.

He did, but on the other side of the garage you have Rossi saying it is no different from the previous bikes. Mixed messages. Hayden's results pattern so far is similar to what we saw in previous years on the Ducati. Up front at the start, dropping back, some good races, some bad.

So far nothing has really changed, but I'm still interested to see if they begin to improve with the new compound front tyres.

A great rider does not necessarily make a great team owner/manager. Be careful what you ask for............

I note on another site that Rossi has said that MotoGP is boring and there is no racing.  This seems strange as there is plenty of racing back in the pack where the Ducatis are running.  It is only the dominant pair at the front who are clearing off.  If this is where his mind is at the moment, then it is time to do something else.
