Philip Island MotoGP: Valentino Rossi not surprised at Casey Stoner’s home speed

Valentino Rossi said he wasn’t surprised to see Casey Stoner dominating the opening day of practice for this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island earlier today.

NAH Wosi

Sell it somewhere else. You and your horde never did respect Stoner past nor present. Re-read your posts across Crash to who cares anyway.

No comments lately re Preziosi's Ducrappi. What if I never tried it...indeed. He would not have been exposed. Rossi's potential is currently Haydenish. The Ducati's potential is higher than the pair of them can deliver. Stoner winning PI is not a given by any manner of means but he is extracting the bikes' potential as always. Commitment to the event post retirement announcement.

That commands respect.  I hope he has great race and a win at home last time out.

Ducatis potential..

Great news Bootlegger! As a long time Ducati nut, (I`ve got an 851 and a 996 atm and have had 6 previous Dukes), thats geat news that the potential for next year is greater that the present.

I cant wait to see Spies and Iannone and Dovi and Hayden be right up there with the Hondas and Yams fighting for the win.
Do you reckon Haydens` Ducati experience will win through over the other three or will Dovi and Iannone or Spies be the front runners?
Whatever. 
I wish I had your confidence. I don`t see it myself, sadly.

So many Rossi haters on here. I'm no fan boy, but 9 world championships. Beat that.

"...caseys injuries are nowhere near as bad as he makes out.."

Yes, I'm sure riding a 250+hp bike around PI with an unattached Achilles' tendon is really nothing to be on about.

Wosi, you there....?

If you are, can you explain how the "GOAT" is matched by RdP on the CRT? Simply awful.

Just shows you what a heap of shit the Ducati is. Still that's not Rossi's problem now, it's the next bunch of has beens and I can't see any of them doing any better.

When every rider that has got on the Duke (even Stoner), says the bike has limitations, then yes you have got to blame the bike.
