Left Handers are people of dubious ethnicity who pleasure themselves with their left hand whilst typing comedic slurs against the Crutchlow with their right hand. Quite ambidextrous actually,far above the capabilities of us Black Country boys.By the way revbenny you are awfull but I like you.

If,when and but

Stoner is gone and won't be back in a 'here's hoping' SBK scenario. He cited the current and evolving set of dumbed down GP regulations as one of the prime movers behind his decision.

Frankly I don't take anything Rossi says as gospel.

I will finish my career with Yamaha,I will finish my career with the Ducati project.

Frankly,Wosi,you will miss Stoner like a hole in the head next year and beyond whilst citing Laguna,Laguna,Laguna, 2008.

I guess Stoner was so immature and shell shocked by that race that he could not come back.

Laguna 2011,Laguna 2012. Get over it !

When Rossi made his intensions clear that he was leaving Yamaha and moving to Ducati, Yamaha froze him out of any further testing and receiving of new parts, and rightly so... So why are Ducati still beholding to the opinions of a guy who has given the factories future a resounding no confidence vote by quitting at the end of the year. If he's not prepared to push when still solely a Ducati rider, how hard will he push with a Yamaha contract in his back pocket?

Yes Wosi, a real shame Laguna 1953 got into his head and he never... ever won a race let alone a championship again.

Did I get that right Wosi?

Meanwhile the rider who usurped him that day continues on piling up the victories on his way to another mind numbing result this year... of 7th! What a legend!

Fuck! I think I must have tapped into your bizarro ISP link Wosi! Maybe that might explain things?

Blimey..

..old wosi compliments Casey on his riding talent, agrees it wasn't all his fault at Ducati but points out that sheer riding ability is only part of the equation at this level mentioning Laguna and, half bricks wrapped in orange panties are hurled at him?

Maybe he's got it wrong..rather than Stoner, it's the #27ers who that classic 2008 battle has twitching involuntarily. Haha..kinda proves a point?

 

Mark..it's an admission by Ducati they have failed Rossi. He is still held in high regard and Preziosi knows Valentino's opinions on the bike make sense. Who can blame them for making the most of him while he's still there? 

If these parts had arrived 3 months ago, as promised, Rossi might have considered staying.

Wosi....

..to blame the entire debacle of the last 18 months purely on "Ducati failing Rossi" is pretty absurd. Whilst I don't hold Ducati entirely blameless, much of the mis-direction and poor feedback given to the engineers, on a machine that by his own admission, he cannot ride, must surely rest at Rossi's door. 

 
There is no guarantee that these new parts will make any difference. We have seen before how 'much improved' parts deemed a success in testing, have been nothing of the sort once back in the heat of battle where it really counts.
 
Nothing obvious has been achieved by the Ducati/Rossi partnership over the last 18 months, and I fail to see how it can possibly be any different for the rest of the season

Most understand that..

..the mis-direction and poor feedback given to the engineers, started way before Rossi got there.

Ducati have been snookered with the GP12 because it is a compromise..a frame built to house the desmo engine which is so important to company identity, everything else has to fit around it negating real progress. They are reluctant for a ground up re-design because, it is a Ducati..!

Btw..I think you'll find Rossi was as fast if not faster than Stoner in terms of race and lap times for the first ten rounds 2011..not bad for someone who can't ride the bike eh?
