Misano MotoGP: Valentino Rossi targets positive result with new chassis

Valentino Rossi is hoping a new Ducati GP12 chassis and swingarm will help him claim only a fourth top six finish of the season in front of his home crowd at Misano tomorrow. The Italian, who will return to Yamaha in 2013, qualified in sixth place this afternoon after posting a best time of 1.34.619 in the first full dry session...

About time

Yes at last Ducati come up with some upgrades, about bloody time. They should of been wheeling out upgrades every week until the problem was solved, but that twat Preziosi thought he knew better. As Rossi has said, Ducati had no development direction and they knew that if the fundamentals of the basic bike wasn't there, no amount of setting up would put it right. Now with Audi at the helm, they might get their arse in gear. It's a pity Rossi didn't have them there two years ago.

Stoner only achieved, because the bike (and tyres)ware head and shoulders above the others. Things have moved on, the Japs are better now, not helped by Ducati's lack of development.

Stoner didn't have Audi/VW 2 years ago either but delivered results. Do you still believe the world is flat and the moon is made of cheese?

Would he have been doing better on the current Duke than his Honda before the crash? I say no.

The point is would he be doing better than the current 'No 1' on the Duke................Most would say yes (despite it sicking in their collective throats).

Numptie central..

The thing is..if Stoner had stayed at Ducati, he'd still be riding the CF bike and picking it up out the sand. Nothing would have changed because he hasn't got a fkin clue. The biggest failure in HRC history Pedrosa, showed us all what a fake toothy lip is this year. 

That Preziosi was happy to resign and kiss Furasawas's brown hole says all you need to know about Ducati.

You call Dani a failure but i'd say he's unlucky. In his time in the premier class he's faced Vale, JLo and Stoner. A formidable trio in ANY era. Take your blinkers off bud. (Or are you bitter tonight 'cos you could'nt beat the Hoops today ;)).

D'ya think if HRC were sponsored by anyone else but Repsol, Dani would still have a job?

Six-and-a-half years a Factory rider in the same team without a title?

Really Wosi?

Bridgestone bring out a new breed of softy feely fronts 2012 (still out of this world though, given Rea's thoughts), and you don't think front end Duke folder - but still race winner and regular podium finisher - Stoner would've reveled in them?

As ever you're trying to pluck clouds from your delusional sky. Remember RCV Stoner was no quicker 2011 than his 2010 GP10 self  in comparable conditions. I have the figures if you'd like me to reproduce them.
