Slow corner acceleration costing Valentino Rossi

Valentino Rossi admitted Ducati’s struggle to accelerate out of slow corners was the main reason for the Italian languishing down in a lowly 10th place at the end of the opening day of practice in Indianapolis. The Italian, who will quit Ducati at the end of 2012 to re-join Yamaha, set a best time of 1.41.529 to finish 0.132s behind team-mate...

All ifs and buts, Rossi could be checking out the soft tyre to see if it would last the whole race. Obviously he wants to be competitive, so it is not like he wants to be in the position that he is in. They had no trouble setting up the Honda/Yamaha, so it is not like he doesn't know how to setup. The common denominator is the shit Ducati, that doesn't seem to respond to the usual setup procedure. As has been said before, you don't lose it overnight and when Dovi goes to Ducati you will see another promising rider in the shit.

buttboy just says anything to make Rossi look worse than he is.
The problem was not that he could not use the soft tyre like buttboy made out.
The problem was the high temperature in the afternoon which caused a problem with both tyres.

As buttboy fails to recognise there is a serious problem with the Ducati regarding set up.
2 of their riders already been to hospital but buttboy blames all the problem on Rossi not being able to set the bike up.
It's funny how the likes of numpty nostro, buttboy and happy bob all slag him for his riding ability after what he has achieved.

Would luv 2 see them 3 on the grid being lapped half way round the first lap by the Doc.

Wonder what bullshit the stoner fanboys will come out with next season?

Wait for Rossi to race the Yamaha and then slag him off if it makes you feel better about your own life and he ends up being slow on that too. However you cannot really compared Rossi and Stoner's time at Ducati as they weren't there. Bikes change from year to year and the Ducati was only getting worse year after year, since 2007 Stoner never looked like winning a championship on it and regularly crashed. Rossi said to the press he isn't going to push on a bike he doesn't feel confident on and we know the Ducati is bad. Also The Hondas and Yamahas have become amazing since Stoner left Ducati, The Honda has amazing top speed and so does the Yamaha now. Not only that but tech 3 have become amazing bikes since Stoner left too, which demotes the Ducati to 7th and 8th which is where Rossi and Hayden are getting in the race. Put Stoner on the Ducati now and he wont win. The question remains though can Rossi still win? We'll see that next year.

I think he's had enough of Ducati and now he's just doing his best to get sacked. If he gets any slower then Elias might beat him..

Ducati's development

All they can do on the Ducati is fiddle about with the settings, because the arseholes at Ducati don't want to change anything major on the bike. Next year when Audi have full control, things will be different, because when (and I mean when) Dovi starts riding it as badly as everyone else, Audi are going to be asking questions and hopefully that twat Preziosi will get his arse in gear or be given the sack.

So yes, all Rossi can do is set the bike up as best they can for the rest of the season, because fundamentaly that bike is shit.

Low traction?

Something is not working. How is it possible to speak of low traction and then the best time with 20 laps on tires? Hayden had no traction problems, and Ducati, thanks to better traction on wet or slippery runway is ok. The problem was that, with too much traction, his bike can not skidding and the front wheel is lifted in acceleration ... I'm saying something wrong?
