Ben Spies backs new Ducati strategy

Ben Spies believes Ducati’s new strategy to give full factory machinery to its entire MotoGP line-up in 2013 will be crucial in helping the Italian manufacturer close the gap to Honda and Yamaha. In a bid to develop the Desmosedici at a much faster rate and expand the amount of rider feedback, Spies, Andrea Iannone, Nicky Hayden and Andrea Dovizioso will...

A ship needs a captain, too many indians masquerading as chiefs has the potential to be divisive.

Ducati thought they had a captain...........................but he jumped in the lifeboat long before the women and children.

lol pacey

You dont quit. My point is that ducatis insistence that the bike is fine is the reason vale left. Yes stoner could ride it...so what...he doesnt race bikes anymore. Just as stoners stats improved by getting off the dule so will rossis. Stoner had better stats on the duke...Rossi has better stats on the yamaha, the aprillia, the honda...

Didn't one Casey Stoner jump ship too?

Things got tough for Casey and he bailed. Took a better offer. Who could blame him? Nobody really. But Rossi, a man who's older and doesn't have the luxury of time in GPs does the same thing, and he's likened to the Costa Concordia Captain? I sense a bitterness towards Casey by some of his acolytes for deserting them in their hour of need. The hurt will pass in time.

Unfeasably large bag on..

"Ducati thought they had a captain..but he jumped in the lifeboat long before the women and children."

Yeah..then he went to Honda with his woman in tow, had a child of his own and bailed again..all the rattles slung out the pram to make way for that big bottom lip so he didn't trip over it.

You really ought to sort yourself out a new moniker PC, the loss & hurt is starting to have profound negative effect.

Bert, you understand Stoner turned down ten mill right?..

His move is hardly taking the "better offer". He moved because he has integrity and a sense of doing the right thing - his credibility to him is secondary to his own happiness. This of course is the very opposite of what Rossi has shown us this year - if the man from Italy had an ounce of self respect, he would of either hung up his gloves or fought harder to make the Duke a viable option. He did neither, primarily because his gargantuan ego clouded his decision making, and the parasites that cling to him, like the parasite barnacles on a ship, obstruct the reasoned progress of his life..

Comprehension..

So he's happy being seen as a dis-credited flip flopper? Sounds about right.

Moving to Honda had fk all to do with integrity you fuitcake. It was about getting carpeted in by his paymasters in public for ducking out mid season without a sick note and driving 4000kms to go fishing when he was supposed to be sick.

He wasn't too happy at Jorge getting offered his job either.

Rossi's a shirker..

One of the highest paid sportsmen in the world submitting a tax return in 2002 for 500 Euros. Shirker! Throwing his toys out of the pram because of a faster tea mate and proving he's no team player. Shirker! Being paid a vast amount of money to ride a bike and then jumping ship when he can't make it work. Shirker! In what other walk of life would someone keep getting away with such a flagrant lack of responsibility?...
