Assen MotoGP: Valentino Rossi urges Ducati action

Valentino Rossi urged Ducati to devise a clear plan for future development of the struggling Desmosedici machine after he qualified in 10th position for tomorrow’s Dutch TT at Assen. The Italian posted a best time of 1.35.057 in a rain-hit session but was still 1.344s off Casey Stoner’s pole position time. Weight distribution changes to Rossi’s GP12 to try and gain more...

"For this reason I expect some good ideas and a good effort to try and fix this problem because it is very optimistic to try and think that just moving the weight on the bike will fix the problem."

Moving '11stone of weight' to another team would make a huge diference to the Dukes performance. 'Benny' has it right.

nostro you idiot

JB has been quiet this last while because the bike sucks and there have been no improvements...ie nothing to talk about . JB knows the fix is to follow his dear friend rossi to honda for a final swansong. Yes maybe only casey could ride ducati, but ONLY rossi and burgess can make the honda sing again...jorge has already won this years championship...casey has once again taken a good bike and ruined it through lack of lap info

Fairplay bud :)

I personally think Vales done now. I could obviously be proved wrong but i'll stick with my opinion and equally hold my hands up if proved wrong.

I think the likes of '1986vfr750' don't help Vales cause. Rossi's been great but time marches on. It'll be an interesting season next year, that's for sure.

From Stoner, this diatribe would be onsidred winging...

The best development rider of all time is nowhere after 18 months! Like schumacher in F1, who thinks hes been found out In the words of Rikki Lake, "he ain't all that"

Sounds very much to me...

as though this might be a PR preface to an eventual parting of the ways. 


"Unfortunately, Ducati could not commit to a clear program of development that would give improvement.. etc. etc." 

Rossi has to find a way to walk out without losing face, and he's already laying the ground here.

pacey casey

fair play to you...everyonr has and is entitled to their own opinion.  Yes rossi is on a descending arc but like checa and biaggi, given the perfect scenario he has one more title left in him. That perfect scenario is a japanese bike in a full factory team.  I think he needs to be on a different bike than jorge so he can use his wiliness to exploit the differences. AND jorge needs to make a couple of mistakes...a couple of dnf's to get the old veterans blood lust up. All of these things are doable...i see pedrosa and jorge at yamaha next year and rossi and marquez at honda. THAT would be an exciting year.  Of course all of this is my own humble opinion but i have a very good record for seeing patterns so lets wait and see...Oh yeah crutchlow and hayden at ducati where crutchlow will realize that the bike these days truly does make the rider and tank but become rich
