Qatar motogp - SPOILER

So - one year on and things are worse than ever....

http://www.crash.net/motogp/news/178407/1/valentino_rossi_lashes_out_after_qatar_nightmare.h tml

Funny how Nicky Hayden toured round to his regular place - similar sort of qualifying/race pace to when Casey Stoner was winning races on the same bike....

So - have Ducati given Rossi everything he asked for and it's Rossi/JB who can't make it work, or as suggested in the link, have Ducati not listened?

In going for an alloy chassis, are Ducati now in unknown territory and totally lost??

At leat today Rossi has commented on the rumours of a split with Ducati

His response finally came today, at Monza, where Rossi is competing in the Blancpain Endurance Series with his best friend Alessio “Uccio” Salucci. Italian TV presenter Valerio Stafelli presented Rossi with a “Tapiro d’Oro”, a satirical prize for well-known Italians who have good reason to be sad (the tapir’s long face is said to make it look sad), and Rossi seized the opportunity to announce on TV that he was intending to stay with Ducati, and no divorce was imminent. “I am very ‘attapirato’ [I have a very long face - DE] because with this Ducati, I cannot be competitive,” Rossi told TV host Stafelli. “I can’t ride at 100%, and the others are all very fast.”

But he would not be giving up any time soon, Rossi said. “We will keep trying at every race,” he told Stafelli, “We will not give up.” As for all the talk of a split with Ducati, Rossi denied any idea of leaving. “I will stay with Ducati. We will do everything we can to make the pairing of Rossi and Ducati function successfully.”
