Wosi old lad
No conspiracy, I really don't care one way or another if Burgess goes there or not. The quotes you've provided are old, before Rossi had signed. Burgess has spoken on it since and what he said was he hadn't been asked and if he was he have to think about it. He didn't say yes I'm going if they ask me. No conspiracy, just what he said. Means nothing until he decides.
Stoner preferred the CF9 and wanted it in 2008 after testing it - no argument. When he got it in 2009 they were on control tyres, not the tyres Ducati built the bike around and he tested it on. The control tyres hurt Ducati more than the others. Not hard to comprehend. Just like the new tyre earlier this year saw a reduction in Ducati front end wipeouts. Coincidence? - seeing as nothing changed on the bike.
Hayden may say it's the best Ducati he's ever ridden but there is no difference in his performance from the CF bike is there. He had the occassional result on that remember, just as he does now. They're lagging behind just as much now as they were in Stoner's time, yet you still blame on rider and not the other. Selective.
Explain to us why Dani is and was doing better than him, before he flicked himself into orbit, twisting his ankle, after such a dominant display last year that had you all creaming your orange panties?
Most of the stuff HRC brought this year has been left in the back of his race truck. Dani worked with it and got better.
A bit selective again here Wosi - The only thing Pedrosa took that Stoner didn't was the new chassis and Stoner beat him in the next race at Laguna with the 'old' frame, so not too concrete an argument you have there is it. Despite your wriggling with stats, they were pretty even in terms of speed up to Indy, something I've never disputed.
As for backwards results, it's reasonable to say (which means you'll disagree...) that the new tyres for 2012 messed up Honda more than Yamaha. Lorenzo is doing what he did last year and racking up consistent finishes. BOTH Honda riders have had chatter and Pedrosa had it again at Motegi with the new bike, so you can't blame Stoner for any input to that. Stoner got caught at Indy as they all do from time to time - Lorenzo last year in case you've forgotten - but for that it would still be a 3 way fight for wins and the title.
