Ducati boss not surprised Valentino Rossi rejected 2013 offer

Ducati boss Filippo Preziosi has admitted that he wasn’t surprised that Valentino Rossi rejected a multi-million pound offer to finish his MotoGP career with the Bologna factory. Not even the weight of support of new owners Audi could help Ducati persuade Rossi to sign a new two-year deal after a disastrous stint on board a factory Desmosedici. Having scored just three podium...

Consistancy

JL got a 'can of whoop ass' handed to him because the Honda was a superior package and Stoner was more consistant throughout the season, the same as JL has been more consistant this season. There is no 'win by default', as they accumulate points and beat whats put in front of them.

There is hardly any difference between the aliens, although from past results JL and CS have the slight edge.  But as they are so close, it is still a case of who is the most consistant over the season. I still think Rossi is up there with them, but two years on the uncompetitive Ducati and  on a new bike next year, it may take a few races to get in the 'groove'.

Stiggy old horse

Stiggers, now then young man, I watched your career blossom on these hallowed pages and now, at the pinnacle of your fame, you accuse me of being, 'The Humming Taffy'  -- enough of that.

Merely joined into this sad affair when Cornbowl, who incidentally does not deserve to be so ridiculed for his views on young Bradley, which I also share, asked me to predict Bradley's  final championship standings for the coming calendar years 2013 and '14, which I did (see earlier post). No hate involved at all. I watched the young Oxford man's career blossom, had high hopes for him, but alas he seems to have topped out at a level which is, unfortunately, not quite world level. Yes he can compete well, but here's the crux, he does not , in my opinion, have that last bit which the greats need to rule the world. Not merely in Moto 2 has he lacked this edge, it was also blindingly evident in his later days under Señor Puig, even after all the coaching.

Further, I do work, I don't live in Wales, thus not a Taffy, thank the Lord, have no contacts to the KGB though I do happen to know it was comrade Putin's birthday yesterday, but that is merely due to my living in a country rather closure to  Russia than Old Blighty is, and thus receiving more local news.

Cornbowl, my advice would be to rest your case on this forum, you will not turn the tide. Lemmings.

Should anyone choose to differ with the views I have given or be rude to me; then I will never post on this forum again. Be warned.

Put Rossi on this years Honda and Casey in this years Ducati, Casey would probably be where he is now, injured, though a couple of places further back in the title race, and Rossi won have won the title a couple of races ago. Simple deduction... Stoner would be better on the duke but not by much due to falling off regularly, and Rossi would be a lot better than Stoner on the Honda...Factoid..
