Valentino Rossi likely to race new chassis in Misano

Valentino Rossi is likely to race a new chassis when the MotoGP world championship resumes at his home race in Misano next month.The Italian spent a two-day test at the Misano track this week evaluating a new chassis and swingarm, which is the biggest single update on the Desmosedici since winter testing back in February and March.Rossi and crew chief...

In the last 20 years there have only really been 2 factories who have dominated 500GP/Motogp that's Honda and Yamaha,  the others have always been half a step behind in terms of development. Suzuki won 2 WC's Ducati 1 and Kawaski none since 1990. All the rest haved been shared by Honda and Yamaha.    Suzuki and Kawasaki quit because they coudln't get their bikes on the pace.  In the first year of the 800's Ducati produced a rocket ship on which Stoner won his and their first WC, who can not remember the first race in Qatar in 2007 when the Ducati went past the Yamaha on the main straight like it was standing still.  Subsequently Honda and Yamaha improved and Ducati apparently stood still.  As Wosi says the Desmosedici lump is Ducati's trade mark and to abandon this in favour of a conventional bike is not an option, they have to make the Desmo work in order to maintain their credibility. The cold fact is that the Rossi/Ducati partnership for whatever reason has not worked but Ducati have to keep trying,  MotoGp needs them the fans need them as well as the return of Suzuki and Kawasaki.I Hope it all happens

This turned out to be, in part, a result of Ducati's creative interpretation of the fuel limit rule. The bike left the grid with 1 litre of extra fuel compared to the others.

Tissot don't lie..

Compare Rossi's 2011 race and lap times with this table..

I'll concede that conditions are unlikely to be identical, Assen was damp 2011 for example, but the favourite old chestnut of tyres improving is bollox. Stoner himself has said as much..so it must be gospel. haha..

Look at Rossi's 2011 times on the left and compare them to the winner in 2010 and Stoner, when he wasn't crashing his brains out over riding the GP10.

http://www.gpone.com/index.php/201109104808/Sulla-Ducati-meglio-Stoner-di-Rossi.html

 

More often than not..Rossi was faster than Stoner on an 800 Ducati..Hard to bear I know, but facts is facts.

Nostro contends that Stoner was as fast on the GP10 as he was on the 2011 RCV ffs..?

Talk about orange blinkers.

BB money was a major contributor to Suzuki and Kawasaki's departure.

Simon MotoGp doesn't need Ducati in particular but in part along with the other factories to make the racing more of a spectacle and less boring than now,

Benny at least its got things back on track (no pun intended) come on smile you old dog - you know you want to.

because Nostro is right. Yes Tissot doesn't lie (I proudly have one adorning my wrist) especially when all the information is taken on board. Unlike Wosi who just cherry picks the odd bits that make Rossi appear faster than Stoner due to a variety of favourably external circumstances (ie, temps, track conditions / resealing, assymetric tyres 2011, not 2010). In like on like conditions GP11 Rossi was slower than Stoner was on the GP10 by a wide margin, which really kind of explains the run of sevenths doesn't it? And again in total elapsed race times like on like, Stoner was generally but a handful of seconds or less quicker on the RCV than the GP10.

Who's the pork pie teller here again Wosi? Ain't me my yellow bile dribbler. This must be about the seventh time I've had to shoot you down with this nonsense of yours.

Horseshit Saturn

Always to same bullshit from you Oompa Loompa's about 2007. Quote Qatar and the admittedly large speed disparity and somehow by implication extrapolate that over the entirety of the season. Fools. The speed gap was slashed within three races. The Ducati's handling deficit remained.

Nowt so blind, deaf and dumb as a 46'er.
