Oh dear DF..
..we are sounding hurt and flustered.
I don't know where you were 2007 & 2011, but I bet it wasn't anywhere near a TV or racetrack. Once Stoner lost the tyre advantage, the results speak for themselves.
Pernat is a washed up old hanger on selling his blog to anyone who will pay and listen.
Capirossi was like wise in 2007..he didn't want to race but be at home with his wife and first new born. Add that to the pressures of the Italian inland revenue spotting him in their crosshairs and, admittedly, a precocious young talented team mate upstaging him and you have a recipe that knocked him for a six, from which he never recovered.
2007, 5 out of the top 7 ran Bridgestone, including 2 Suzuki's and a satellite Honda ridden by Melandri. Says it all. It's why the control tyre came in.
Hayden was only 20 pts further adrift from Stoner at year end 2010 than Rossi this last season gone and improved once he was allowed to run his own set up. Stoner mullered him by all account yet Rossi could barely beat him.
Face the music Pal, you're all at sea..You start it and wosi will finish it every time. You should know that by now?
Let it/him go or fk off to a V8 forum.
