Valentino Rossi continues development work for Ducati

Valentino Rossi might be heading back to Yamaha in less than two months, but the Italian is still playing a pivotal role in trying to make Ducati a more competitive force in 2013. The Italian raced a new chassis and swingarm to second place in his home race in Misano on Sunday, which was his best dry race result on board...

Fame at last

I've got a compliment from SuperM - Thanks for that.    Nostro why do you dislike Rossi so intensely  -  never did get an answer

Casey just rides around problems

Yep, that'll be it Fog. It's a wonder he bothers with practice at all. He may as well just roll the thing out of the truck and straight onto the track.

Sunshine you've displayed your ignorance of this sport all too starkly with that comment.

Trippy

have you not sat and meditated on this point that appears to so perplex you? The answer is out there, relax and let it come to you.

'' It's a wonder he bothers with practice at all. He may as well just roll the thing out of the truck and straight onto the track.''

Aint that the truth!  That's about just what he does do. - he only goes out to stick in a fast one for his grid position then sits it with his feet up  till  his time is under threat then goes out and sticks in another fast one.    He does the fewest practice runs of any of the top riders.   Why ?  because he doesn't find the problems    just rides round them.     Not much development going on there then!

Saturn is there no air in your atmosphere?

You appear to have oxygen starvation issues. If you'd ever bothered to read anything written about Casey Stoner by his current or ex crew chiefs you'll be aware his arse is a finely honed piece of sensory kit (do your worst) and that he very clearly articulates problems with the machine.

We're not talking Carl Fogarty and 1990's Superbikes. There is absolutely no way you can simply ride around problems in MotoGP and get the type of results Stoner did. What Stoner does do very well is find the best compromise setting he and his team can, and adapt his riding to mitigate machine weaknesses as much as possible. A skill one Valentino Rossi fundamentally does not have.

Errrm....

"and adapt his riding to mitigate machine weaknesses" - In other words... Stoner rides around the problems rather than fixing them....

Lordy Lordy

I see we're back to riders (or a certain rider) "fixing" problems again

Riders work with their crew to achieve best set up for the track they're at. If the bike has a fundamental problem that they can't completely eradicate with setting changes they get the best compromise they can and then compensate for the rest as best they can with their riding. Until the factory cure the fundamental problem - if at all. They all have to deal with 'riding around a problem' on occassion, some manage it better than others.

That is not the same as riding around problems and not having a clue how to set a bike up - which is what you're accusing Stoner of yet again - yawn..

Do you yellow panty wearers again need reminding of your own great man's words on development and set -up so far this season? We'll recap anyway, just in case you have selective memory syndrome.

I don't know how to fix it - I don't know what's wrong with it - I can't adapt. - We can't fix it that is the engineer's job - I'm not an engineer - This bike can't be fixed with set-up alone - This bike doesn't respond to set-up changes, it's exactly the same as the last one (then he went quicker by being told to use Hayden's settings)

You see Minty Moaner

when you choose to pick and quote only half a sentence you achieve nothing more than to paint yourself a fool. But that was never really in doubt was it?

so similiar

nostro and bultoboy you are so similar it's untrue.
It's strange how you always back each other up and are two of the biggest Rossi haters on here.
Are you sure you both don't type from the same keyboard?
