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...

I feel what you're saying. I was gutted when vale chucked in the towel today too. But in some ways it gives me some hope too. 

Because if valentino was intrested in battling over 9th place, and if he thought his fans were interested in seeing him place 9th then that would mean he really has lost it. The fact that it pisses him off means he knows given a bike that works for him he could be fighting for the top again.

As to whether he'll get a jap bike next year it looks likely. Based on today's performances and statements that have been made, a factory spec satellite honda is a very real proposition.

Honda are stuck with Dani. He's too quick to let go, but not good enough to take the title from lorenzo. Anyone with half a braincell could see that rossi's still got the skill. And put him back on a bike he can ride and he'll be determined to show the world. And let's face it, he can hardly do any worse than bautista.

I havnt read through the comments so dont know who said vr is past it. Far from it, if he does go to Honda which i think he will he will win the next 2 championships, Stoner involved or not. In fact I think vr cant wait to get on the Honda. Once he goes and its confirmed il be looking for the first bookies with odds on vr for 2013 and 14
