I think if rossi had a quality package like stoner then we would see who was the best. people support riders really not so much manufacturers, and definatly not tyres. Its good to have competition in moto gp, it would be boring if we didn't. It makes it interesting that noone completely dominates, i'm excited for next year cause I think that yamaha can build a more competitive bike and if rossi is on the same tyres as stoner I personaly think rossi will smoke him something stupid. If stoner was on michelin this year I think he would have been upto old tricks(falling off at every corner) Come on rossi!!!!!!!!!!

Rossi is the best rider by far. When his bike is setup perfectly and has no engine failure then there is no rider in the world today who can stop him. Stoner is just an average rider with a good bike without the bike he would be just another rider. In the races that Rossi has won coming from behind showed that he is a class rider.

Rossi had the best bike and the might of Michelin tyres when they could make new tyres for him overnight (other riders missed out on them) when he was with the Repsol Honda team. I didn't hear him complaining then and it is disappointing now that he has not got the edge.
I still think he is the equal of any rider including Stoner and it would be good to see him on equal bikes to show his class.
Roll on 2008 and a new season. Go Valentino and Casey, I look forward to every race from my home in Australia

i think most of the people have lost faith in valentino rossi's ability and quality, iam very much disappointed about that even luck not favouring him but there is light after every dark i am with rossi whatever the case may be, he is my champion and just wait for 2008 if everything remains fine then we will see rossi again winning his championship title no. 8. basically most of the people are not his true fan that's why they have lost faith in rossi, but those who know's that rossi has got special talent and amazing skills will wait for the right time and they are always with rossi . for those who are not favouring rossi forgot that time keeps on changing if you are seeing bad time then sooner or later you will see good time also.

As an aussie, we are proud to see Stoner win, however, it is only a development year on the 800's. When all the factory teams get their things together, it will be a different story. He wont only be battling Rossi, but he will be lucky to podium nxt year. Rossi is the greatest rider of all time and he proved this yet again at portugal - when he has the package working (like stoner has now), he kicks all the other rider's butts. Like Kenny said, it was different when stoner didnt have the package he switched after one year, if he is such a legend, go to suzuki or kawasaki and win back to back titles - it will never happen. Go Rossi!!!!!! We have faith in you and your abilities - its been bad luck this season and its out of your control. We luv 46!!!

I have followed valentino from the start an have been a moto gp fan for meny years,casey stoner is a good rider one of the best in the world today as all the riders in moto gp are class acts but look at what valentino has acheived even though he has had a bad 2 years look at what he did this year at assen ,came from 11 on the grid an just blitzed his way through to win ive never seen that from eny other rider on the grid only valentino.rossi is a legend with more to come from him yet just sit back an enjoy the show.like him or dislike him you should enjoy watching sutch a talent ,when hes gone hes gone.

I definitely agree with you. Shifting from 990ccs to 800ccs enginge isnt that simple, you have to really make sure the package works for the full course of the race, not just by jumping to conclusions after having a winter test and then be confident at the start of the season that you can defend or win again the title. Hayden was affected in this stage. I think if the 2007 season ran with 990ccs then Hayden would had agot a chance in winning/defending his title. Ahm, anyway Im a Rossi fan, WE ALL KNOW HIS CAPABILITIES. See you soon 2008!

The only thing stoner has going for him is the desmosedici RR. Stoner had the upper hand at laguna seca in 08 with the long straights and Rossi still beat him. Stoner was such a sore loser he wouldn't even shake his hand. I want to see Casey and Valentino on identical bikes and tires. I know it would be a stomping i just want to see how bad Rossi would slay stoner

Valentino is the master of precision and strategy, his charisma is suited for status of a world champion. Sorry Casey your kinda boring and just don't have it. Ducati is the only reason Stoner wins now and then Casey acts like a baby when he loses. He didn't even congratulations when he was 09'champ. no Class!

Hey everyone, do we still believe it was just the Ducati that was responsible for Casey's results over the past 4 years? How's the G.O.A.T. going on the Duke so far in 2011? Maybe Rossi should ring Casey for some advice. He could use some.
