Valentino Rossi has blamed Casey Stoner for taking the Ducati MotoGP bike along a wrong path of development and that was the reason why he was languishing where he is. In contrast to this year’s bike Rossi claims next year’s steed to be “his”. Rossi was implying that Stoner did not have good development skills. Casey Stoner did fightback saying that he did whatever he could within the constraints of the money cap that Ducati had imposed upon itself. This weekend Rossi will ride the GP11.1 (as the cross between this year’s engine and next year’s chassis is being called) at the Assen TT GP. The Ducati chassis does not consist of a frame. The front and the rear are attached to the engine which acts as a stressed member. Rossi also gets to try out Ducati’s version of seamless transmission that Honda has been using. Assen will be interesting to say the least.
