He also went faster with a broken leg than the WSBK guys did the weekend previous.
As much money that they have spent, where is the breakdown coming from? Obviously they can build a bike that can win(WSBK) but why is the MotoGP bike so hard to ride? Yes yes yes, Casey could ride it, blah blah he's still a huge whiner. No one else seems to be able too. Shocking really but that's where we're at.
Ducati needs to produce something. Currently I don't think anyone knows what that is. Eesh. But I don't think Rossi is done. We shall see. If it is his swan song, then so be it. But with just one race and an angry interview, you can't call the entire season.
I don't have any answers beyond the lessons that are always learnt, the hard way, when an athlete passes the torch against his will.
Honest, I have no ill-will toward Rossi, he's one of histories great sporting heroes.
But, ya know, sometimes it's hard being the messenger
