Valentino Rossi to leave Ducati

Ducati has officially announced that seven-time MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi will leave the factory team at the end of the 2012 season. Rossi joined the factory Ducati team in 2011 after winning four world championships with the factory Yamaha squad, but failed to gel with the Ducati, claiming a best result of second in the rain at Le Mans in...

italian bottler shows true colours!

BOTTLED IT just lost his goat title in my estimation but then he,s an italian jump sides whenever it suits them he will behave like nothing at ducati was his fault.they built a alloy frame and swinging arm and a new engine and still no improvement from him.he and jerry have left an entirely different bike and still sattelite ducati,s were out qualifing him.but more money into his and carmelo,,s pockets at the determent of other more deserving riders.

"He is a great rider no doubting but also the biggest flop to have ever ridden the Ducati".

a somewhat contradictory statement ... can you prove that with statistics?

wosi

A rare achievement to win championships for 2 different marques, only previously achieved by 3 others when rossi managed it in 2004, and by 1 other since although that rider's achievement was apparently negligible.

You don't think wayne rainey breaking his back in 1993, and 2 blokes called doohan and rossi riding for the honda factory for 8 of the 10 championships yamaha didn't win after that had something to do with yamaha's lack of success though?

More shit

GYTR.... Rossi was the highest ranking Ducati rider last year, so who was ever behind him were bigger flops.

Torryboy.....  At least he wasn't the first to bottle it, that position goes to Stoner. Also Yamaha don't think there is a more deserving rider and being a 9x WC only a moron would think otherwise.

Tetsuo....Even if he is a sociopath, who gives a shit. He is exciting to watch racing, end of.

NSR.

While Doohan is undoubtedly a legend in his own lunchtime, the mighty NSR500 had a big say in matters..even more so than the 990RCV. Mick knew it too and stayed with Honda all his top class career.

He didn't have a lot of competition either during his pomp. Criville gave him a run when fit on the same bike, something that got under his famously thick skin.The better riders always were on other slower bikes..I guess Mick preferred it that way.

1995, six of the top eight bikes were NSRs. 96-98, they filled the top four spots each season. HRCs most dominant and proudest period was personified by average Japanese riders such as Ito, Okada and Aoki riding it with success..

Now if Abe had stayed on one, things may have been a little different for the thunder from down under.

If people will insist on saying Rossi 'bottled it' for leaving Ducati, then you have to say Stoner 'bottled it' as well. He left Ducati because he couldn't tame it anymore.

Statistics show he is not the worst rider, doesn't matter how many points it is. End of.
