Poll: Is Rossi making the right move?

It's looking very likely that Rossi is on the way back to Yamaha. Is he making the right move?

Useless comment by Milky.

Another useless comment that 2010 Ducati scare Casey did it really Milky or did I see the rider who left getting 3 wins on it right near the end and podium finishes you do talk utter bollocks more like it scared Rossi who can't ride the thing its the bike, its the tyres despite numerous updates still fail.

to be honest......

.....I can't wait for Rossi to return to a competitive bike despite obvious posteres on here that don't want it to happen, Rossi will win another championship if he returns to Yamaha.

All those who slag him off ask yourselves one question:

When was the last tight race your saw since he left Yamaha? Rossi / Lorenzo Spain 2010 last corner overtake! not happened since with Stoner, Lorenzo or Dani, they finish miles apart in a different county usually, what we want is racing and Rossi can deliver that if you give him a competitive bike.

You don't win 9 times and then become a shit rider overnight........dream on boys!

6 and half a dozen

I hope he goes back to Yamaha yet at the same time won't bet on it. Have to wait and see.

Ducati have certainly been drawn and quartered since he joined. Before Rossi's tenure at Ducati,the bike was considered as something between very good and above average. Since 2011 it has been regarded as such a *** that no one should deserve the misfortune of slinging a leg over it. Yet no mention of the narrow angle V4 Suzuki being lambasted as a useless piece of whatever. Neither the transverse 4 Kawasaki of GP yesteryear.

Both of those companies had and still do have heavy hitting financial resources,facilities and clout to modify and upgrade at a pace way ahead of Ducati. The VW interest in Suzuki is interesting. That relationship did not see them improve Suzuki in GP and turn it into a Ducati slayer. So what exactly suggests VAG will push Ducati into a two wheeled GP stratosphere? Nothing really,even with Rossi on board and he knows it. Just GOOOO!!!!! Gauloises Furasawa MI 2004 and try it again.

 

I tend to go with Eddy998. Rossi is a hinderance to the minnow prototype outfit that has always been Ducati.

Valencia 2011 when Stoner pipped Spies to the line (Sorry Elbowz....).

The thing about casey's last two season on the duke is that they were only ever good in comparison to the other dukes.. and that's not really the true measure of a factory no1 rider.. For a factory number one rider 'even' his results were shyte.. Everyone was screaming for Danis head yet he consistently performed better than Casey over those two seasons comfortably finishing infront of him even though Dani had several injuries and even missed 4 races in 2010 (so did Rossi and rode all year injured) yet both beat him easily.. Could anyone see Jorge or Dani finishing ahead of casey if they missed 4 races?? no they couldn't becuase as Casey proved when he score the equivalent of 6 race wins of extra points the first time he got off the duke on to a honda.... ..

soz, to continue --- the jap bikes are so far ahead of the duke that it's taken for granted that an average performance on the duke by a rider capable of much more is considered the equivalent of a title by some...

I REALLY,REALLY HOPE...

        He move`s and make`s way for Cal to get on a Work`s bike,with a real shot of winning race`s,which will never happen on a satty bike. Trouble is their offering silly money to stay,and we all know he does love money,{ ask the taxman }.            And, in his heart,he must know he ain`t got a hope in hell,of ever winning again.Also, the fact is with Ducati,he can keep blaming the bike,while Nicky is his team-mate. But with the Yam,he can`t use that old excuse,so he`s fckd ! I guess we`ll find out soon enough.

Honda and Yamaha

I guess you are selectively pre disposed to Jap bikes Hugelean. Nevermind. Since you raised the topic,exactly what are Triumph,Norton,BSA  doing to adress the issue in Great Britain? Again,nothing really. Much like USA and Harley Davidson. Could care less. And you bunch moan about Ducati Corse and a short engine L4. Really. How much centre of gravity would Ducati gain by cutting 4mm tilt with 75 degree V angle.. Again nothing really. The twin spar alloy beam has bought them some options in terms of positioning the compact lump. Their riders can't exploit it. Actually,I've protested against Hayden,but I'm pleased he has the deal locked,for Ducati's sake. At worst he supplies continuance. At best the CF data from yesteryear may reset the clock and Ducati's fame and fortune. Nick has a free hand (input wise),for the first time ever in his GP career, for now. It will come to fruition providing Vale signs super quick for Yamaha factory.
