Its something to do with him and that bike not getting along. It isn't the broken leg, bc he was still using a walking cane while going over a second faster than all the wsbk riders on a spec R1 after surgery. I wish he would've stayed on the Yamaha to retire, bc watching a 7 time motogp world champion go out as a back marker really sucks. Maybe watching Simoncelli die has spooked him, but I think the majority of the blame falls on the desmo. He has made the bike faster for other riders, but it still won't hold up where Rossi is strongest, corner entry on the brakes.

....you were saying??

He has been racing for Ferrari for years, this year he signed to race an endurance series starting this weekend at Monza in a prepped 458 Italia.

I was saying... show me a link to where it says that he signed for a full season of GT car racing THIS year. Not just a picture from a race he did in 2009.
You might be correct, but I couldn't find anything on the interwebz to confirm your story.

I believe there is a schism between Vale and the engineers. He knows how to R&D and get the bike tested. At this point my faith is shaken in Rossi as a rider and Burgess' ability to set the bike up.

I don't believe he was driving for Ferrari on this occassion and nothing indicates that in this article.....
and apart from the F1 tests clarify driving for ferrari for years
if i missed it i'd like to read about it and i've googled

Has doesn't race and hasn't race for FERRARI, he is racing as a wildcard his OWN 458 Italia. He WILL race for ferrari now with his own car but this time backed by Ferrari.

The only good Moto2 races are when Iannone is dicing it up, when he's not they really are'nt as exiting.

Marques was out of line, he needs more than a slap after that move. But who else has the kind of backing he does. The guy did so much testing last year they had to rewite the rules.

His post race interview was a bunch of BS about beign passed hard. He ran this guy off the track dilebrtly. Plain as day even if it happend at night. His championship unraveld last year of his own doing when he rammed into the back of a stoped rider after the end of the session.

Rossi and his crew chief were way out of line back when they were mouthing off about Casey not riding the Duc hard enough and thay they'd have the front end fixed in no time... Jokes on them. Rossi wanted the 1000cc, saying 800 were biggest mistake. I suppose he made an even bigger one.

The world is convinced that Ducati no longer have the best bike even though it is the fastest. Had Stoner been on it that would not be the case.

Ducatic will get tired of taking the blame here and allow Rossi to contiue digging himself a hole he cannot get out of.

As for Ferrari, they don't tollerate drivers that talk bad about their cars, I'm affraid Rossi current display with the press would'nt gel well at all.

what goes round comes around, marques will get his, probably at the hands of iannone, who will then get penalised

I'm interested to here Burgess talk about the problems that are dragging everybodies reputation into the crapper, including his!!
