Sure, Rossi rode a great race other than the Corkscrew incident, which was a dangerous riding error imo as I have said. Stoner was reviled for his post-race reaction, which was mild by recent Rossi standards.

At the time Stoner was assumed to be riding a bike that was intrinsically a second a lap or more faster. I somehow don't think this would have been the case had the riders swapped bikes.

I just did the math and it turns out that because rossi was so inept on the Ducati and scored a grand total of zero ( 0 ) wins ..... Stoner is actually infinitely better than rossi.


But meh ... who cares about math ..... it was obvious anyway.

Exceeding track limits. Isn't that a penalty?

Lorenzo scored fewer points in his first Ducati season vs Rossi in his first Ducati season.

Rossi's first Ducati season had fewer races on the calendar, and could argue that he was the top Ducati rider but Lorenzo could argue that the grid is deeper today.

He's alright this year, I'd be surprised if he got anywhere near his teammate in the final standings though, I quite like Marco but I do remember when he got the Ducati GP ride in 2008 and loads of people were predicting him to wipe the floor with Stoner and win the title but in the end he couldn't even wipe Stoners arse he was that far back.
