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?

Rossi +Ducati= Yamaha ??

So Rossi is thinking of moving back to Yamaha as Lorenzo's deputy,my,how times change and how the mighty have fallen. Trouble is,people are saying the Ducati is crap....Wrong,they just don't have the right rider to get the best from the bike. Stoner,Bayliss and Caparossi (in his hay day) were winning racers/world championships,and Ducati are still competitive as Rossi has shown this year on the podium with a 3rd. However,some people just aren't suited to particular makes,so maybe its best left u p to Rossi himself to decide.

Competitive

We will find out if Ducati are competitive when Cal & Redding ride it next year. Many people think that the it still is, but they are only comparing it to 2009. The thing is,  Honda and Yamaha have moved the goal posts and Ducati have been left behind. No surprise really, as their development team is a lot bigger, can make all their own parts and have a budget 10x the size.

So El Diablo

You see a 16kmph advantage at the first race of 2007 and extrapolate that over an entire season. Your undies wouldn't be ever so slightly yellow would they?

Oompa Loompa's say the 2007 Ducati was head and shoulders the best machine on the grid 2007, all the whilst conveniently forgetting that 2006 rider of the year Capirossi was a million points behind Stoner. Yep all Stoner had to do was pull the trigger and win after win would follow. Thing is he consistently pulled that trigger harder and earlier than any other rider on the grid. That's how speed is generated Oompa Loompa's - with balls.

Rossi's got the most powerful bike on the grid 2012. What's he doing with it? I'll tell you - whinging. Whinging that it's too much for him - 'back it off Ducati, my wrist is old and limp'. Back to your Yamaha sofa Mr. Rossi. Watch out though you may well sink too deep into that as well.

What about 2008 same battle but with a different outcome despite Ducati having a speed advantage over the M1 Rossi charges from 8th on the grid gets up to Stoner and they have a battle like in 2007 where the Yamaha rider comes out on top unfortunately that was not for the win but for 2nd place.

2008 the Yamaha was the best bike.

They did close the gap bb the 2008 M1 was the best bike on the grid and to prove it I'll repeat it again the battles what Rossi had with Stoner ie that epic Laguna duel and not to say Vale dumping Michelin for Bridgestone rubber not just any type the ones what Casey was using.
