You sound like Ezzie's right hand man. This whole cost malarkey is a bloody great furphy. There is no shortage of money in racing.

Max hits the turps.



Out with the old, in with the new. Poor old Preziosi, they're rolling him out.

Prez needs to go. With the exception on Stoner, who for whatever reason gelled with the Duck, no one else has had any consistent success with bike.

There is only one sure thing regarding Marky Marmite's 2013 - there will be controversy.

[Thanks for the nick-name Dee, how'd you come up with that one? I like Marky Marqu, but I am willing to try Marmite and see how it fits.]

@Boldor: I guess you either love him or you hate him.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.

Let's look at the evidence. No multi-time world champions had any consistent success on the Ducati.
Stoner was thought of as a crasher when he was with Honda, but it was like night and day when he switched to the 800cc Ducati.
He had a good final year on the 800cc Honda in a lame duck season, and wasn't able to repeat that success again on 1000cc Honda because of a big crash that took him out.

I would go as far to say that he gelled better with the Ducati than he did the Honda.
