It's time you grew up and gave up your endless quest to deride Stoner on every topic, blame him for Rossi's failure at Ducati, absolve Rossi of blame for anything and persist with the fact that he is peerless.
And this is total bollocks - 2004 was a lifetime ago when, with the pre-electronics arms race bikes, a rider could still make a difference.
Those bikes had advanced electronics, not as advanced as now obviously but a bit more than 2 stage ignition mapping. I had a bought over the counter 2 stage, self-map ignition on my motox bike back in 1999 ffs.
And why do you constantly harp on about the 2007 tyres but disregard Rossi's overnight Michelins. And when I pointed out that the control tyres may have suited the CF9 anf CF10 less than the Yamaha and Honda you dismissed it. Now though, it suits your purpose.
Read this Wosi and forget about Stoner on this topic - it's not about him. This is Hayden speaking about Ducati and Rossi
Over the past two years they took some unfair criticism saying they didn't try enough to give him what he wanted and I certainly disagree with that. I think they went above and beyond trying to please him and unfortunately that was a little bit negative because maybe we tried too hard to improve and made too many big changes during the season.
But also there are negatives because there are benefits to having Valentino on the team. He brought a lot of motivation to the team and when he spoke people really listened.
Ducati did nothing eh...
