Lorenzo took the title in 2010, but Rossi was out many races because of a broken leg.

Back in 2010, Rossi and Lorenzo had some epic battles tough... Japan, Spain... Which Rossi won.

Lorenzo might beat Rossi in 2013, but i seriously doubt it. 9 titles... he's no joke.

Lorenzo and Predro are going to Destroy Rossi next year. By the end of the year MM will be beating him too.

Lorenzo is the only threat to Rossi. Pedro will be busy chasing that alien status ( failing ).... And MM, most likely will self destruct...

Cards were not stacked in his favor at all and I would say 80% of last season was not his fault at all. Hopefully Audi will turn some stuff around and they'll get back to being competitive.
Some luck, you make.

Spies wanted the bike set up really hard, apparently harder than the Yamaha wanted to be set - broken shock mount as a result. So you can interpret that as the bike not being adapted to him, or vice versa.

There were enough mistakes to go around, so lets just say it wasn't a good match and move on. Quitting via Twitter was unprofessional, no matter what the executive had to say. Hopefully, he will enjoy the Ducati family.

Riiiiiight. Rossi had better hand back the 09 title then, given Stoner missed so many races through illness. Oh, and while we're at it, Rainey can give up his 92 title because Doohan was out injured after leading the championship race by a mile...

Your kidding right? His settings are what broke the shock mount? Getthefunkoutahere with that

Lets be realistic, at minimum Rossi is going to have his hands full with Lorenzo, Pedro and others. They've were a challenge a couple years ago and they've only matured in their riding since then. Mean while, we can't say just how fast Rossi still is.


Could make for some great racing next year... but I doubt Rossi will just stomp everyone.

There might be some truth to that. I remember reading something about him running an unusually stiff swingarm in AMA and SBK because that's what he liked. Laguna is probably the most punishing track on suspension throughout the year but its hard to imagine there wasn't some sort of defect.
