Filippo Preziosi replaced in Ducati management shake-up

The fallout from Valentino Rossi’s disastrous two-year spell with Ducati is starting to be felt, with Filippo Preziosi and Alessandro Cicognani replaced in a major management shake-up. The highest profile casualty is Preziosi, who has been an instrumental figure at Ducati Corse since the Bologna factory entered MotoGP back in 2003. He was widely acclaimed in 2007 when Casey Stoner won the...

Been on the strongbows all night Wosi

Not a lot of comprehensible coherency there with a bunch of figures which are mean't to show what?

The Yamaha a slower bike, ha, ha. Georgie's bloody good, but he doesn't get on the gas so well.

I'll leave you with just the one quote from your 'clear, concise feedback genius' when asked what does the Ducati need Rossi replied "err, I don't know, I'm not an engineer."

"Ducati brought nothing to the table, so he approached Yamaha..who yanked his arm off to sign."

Really Wosi?.. Why then is Rossi the designated number 2 rider, with Lorenzo leading the development of the M1? And why is Rossi having to ride for virtually nothing in comparison to his younger team mate? That doesn't lead me to think Yamaha were that desperate for his signature. As you and I know Wosi, it has thatch all to do with Yamaha wanting him back due to his vast technical knowledge as you suggest, and all to do with the power of personality being able to sell motorcycles..

It's pretty simple..

To denigrate Rossi, some of you like to think Stoner spanked Hayden, Val didn't and that proves Rossi is shit.

The reality is..Stoner beat Hayden, so did Rossi. The gap which it's claimed illustrates Rossi barely beating his team mate, thereby backing up your theory, is only 21pts less than Stoner managed over respective seasons of 18 races.

That my friend, blows your bullshit clean out the water and puts another dent in your credibilty.

and I repeat

on any given day with the Ducati Stoner gridded up competitively, a real threat for the win to his fellow competitors. Conversely Lorenzo for example never even saw Rossi on track during the last two years. Stoner only saw him twice, both times wet - once Rossi covered himself in some sort of tepid glory, the other with a coat of ignominy.

Rossi's a grid filler. As CHR states Yamaha have only brought him back into the Yamaha family fold for marketing purposes to trade off the legacy of their good years together, and from their perspect hopefully retain him in some sort of PR / ambassadorial role through retirement as they do with Lawson & Roberts. So in essence he's little more than a glorified brolly dolly for YMC now. But you know this really Wosi.

Stoner a grid filler?

He wasn't though, was he Reverend? That's a pretty flimsy little balsa wooden spoon you've stuck in there.

I think you'll find Reverend

that the stat's show Stoner with a muscular 63% podium ratio of races started on the Duke. As opposed to a frankly feeble 8% for one Snr. V Rossi.

Interestingly Stoner's podium rate went up from '09 to '10. We could also extrapolate that curve upwards into 2011 and beyond. But we both know you've entered the Wosi realm of 'damned lies' with your extrapolation. Is he a mate of yours?

Correct me if I'm wrong Rev

But in this sport I thought we celebrated those standing on the box.

If we don't then what does this say about Dovi?

Valencia 2012

3rd place. Not a bad effort from a cripple merely riding around to finish and retire, not willing to stick his neck out in any which way or form.

Valencia was a truly damning indictment of the fully fit Dovi who finished another 30 seconds down the road from Stoner the cripple. Dovi was only a few seconds away from being lapped as Rossi was. The mark of a lead factory rider? Quite concerning.
