Valentino Rossi impresses in NASCAR test

Valentino Rossi indulged in his passion for four-wheeled motorsport in America yesterday when the Italian tested Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Toyota Camry at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fresh from a disappointing sixth place in the inaugural Circuit of the Americas MotoGP race in Texas, Rossi got behind the wheel of the 650bhp NASCAR to put in a series of fast laps around...

your stats are bunk hello46

because they don't take into account riders whose Dads aren't mates with a factory team and have to prove themselves on lesser machinery first. Of course Rossi has had more better days, but most of them were pre 2007 weren't they. Looking back indeed.

you have to take a riders career as a whole, not just over a given period just to suit!!.  But her eis one for you.  I know from 07 to 2012 Stoners is better, and i guess that is what you are getting at.  But after Luguna in 08 when Rossi got into the weak ones head!  Here are the stats from 08 to 10.  More equal kit to compare against

Rider       Starts   Wins   Podiums   Win Rate %   Podium Rate %

Rossi         46         17          40                  34.69%         81.63%

Stoner        49         13          28                  26.53%          57.14%

Or was it the bike that caused Stoner to fall off in so many races

Ask Rossi

"Or was it the bike that caused Stoner to fall off in so many races"

Rossi set the record for binning it on the factory Ducati in a single season.  But I like your theory that it was Stoner that got into his head.

I will forever doubt whatever you say, after that blunder.

No, you're wrong

Rossi crashed the GP11 a total of 12 times in 2011 - a factory Ducati record.  You'll be amazed to know that they ride the bike in sessions apart from races.

The point I was trying to make was that if you're going to imply that Stoner was crashing because Rossi got in  his head, then you can use the same (obviously retarded) logic to say that Stoner got in to Rossi's head.

I doubt you even more Tetsuo

Is it not better to find the limit in practice than in the race?

After Laguna 2008, which you mentioned, Mr Casey crashed while leading by a country mile, twice.

Three wins in a row, beaten at Laguna, then two crashes in a row. Coincidence?

Minor victory

that you can now see that your false assumption (that I was talking exclusively about races) made you shoot your mouth off like a dork.

Look, all I can do is point out the retardation of your logic.  I can't actually make you see it yourself.

Good

At least you admit I'm using logic. There may be hope for you yet, although I have grave... well, you know the rest.
