No seventh heaven for Valentino Rossi

Valentino Rossi got a stark reminder of how difficult it is to challenge for the podium on Ducati’s factory GP12 machine yesterday when he finished the Catalunya Grand Prix in seventh place. Rossi arrived in Barcelona on a high after claiming his career best Ducati result with second place in Le Mans last month in wet conditions. But it was back to...

He's just so much better than this bike - a true racer - awesome.

Stoner was.......Rossi 'aint. The facts speak for themselves.

Vale yrs ago would have busted his balls at every turn, no doubt. Todays Vale don't.

You left wanker-mode on, Benny

"unlike Stoner who is currently being humbled by his team-mate Pedrosa."

Being humbled by beating him in the championship?  Man, I know you're not that retarded.

Rossi has shown an uncanny ability to develop the Ducati backwards.  The good news is that they're now listening to Hayden's feedback and will continue to improve if they keep doing so.

Rossi awesome eh Benny?

It seems your expectations of his abilities have sunk as low of those of the man himself. From Rossi on down to all the Oompa Loompa's, they're all happy with his 7th. Because they all know that's his true station in the modern world. It's not shrunken onions as Bob suggested, but more a case of the others knowing they had to raise their game to a higher level whilst Rossi desperately tried to stem the tide through machinations more foul than fair.

Game over for the old boy. Put him on a RCV or a M1 and positions won't change. I really hope he is on a Jap bike next year just to make his free fall complete.

go to superbikes

i thinks he should go to superbikes, thats when racers who are in there older years win championships. i just cant wait for it to stop being the valentino rossi show and focus on the up and coming riders like bradl, he is doing an amazing job or our own crutchlow. ive supported him for years and years. i hope someone fills that honda seat before marquez gets it, i really dont like that kid, it always seems like he can get away with murder, is it me? nah i just dont like him lol

Define 'huge equipment advantage' Benny

You seem to be mistaking the incredible D16 - the most powerful (285++ hp according to DE remember) GP machine on the grid for a CRT. Hardly Preziosi's fault old butter balls is too scared to pull the trigger properly.

There's a strong argument to be made that the RCV213 is the worst factory bike on the grid and that once more Stoner has over achieved on a recalcitrant motorcycle.

Rossi develope the Ducati backwards??????...... He has got a long way to go to beat Stoner, who from 2007-10 got the Ducati to perform worse each year. Now after the Honda was a top package in 2011, Stoner is again bringing the bike down. He ought to start using Pedrosa's settings, then he might  do alot better.

Maybe not backwards

"Rossi develope the Ducati backwards??????"

Not so much backwards ... more like throw it off the cliff, straight to rock-bottom and barely budged since.  That might change with Ducati listening to Hayden more (fingers crossed).

TweedleDum or TweedleDee?

Both as bad as each other. A thorough sweep out of washed up WC's is what Corse need.

Ignore the facts

I thought you might want to ignore the fact that Stoner is the king of spoiling any developement. I think he knows it himself, that's why he is retiring, to save himself any more embarrassment
