I feel bad for Hayden and Dovi for having to manage this task with no end in sight, Ducati have said that the GP13 has reached its developmental limit long time ago and no more adjustments can be made with this bike also the same applies with the so called Lab bike which i think it is not a new frame but rather and old or parallel variation of the GP13 which explains why this bike is so similar in performance, that said it makes me think if Ducati's new owners are really serious about being competitive, i hope im wrong and they surprise all of us with a true new bike with a real performance potential and as for all this testing they are performing whats the point when no real improvements are achieved , look at the gap it is still 30 plus seconds.

And fortunately new owners failed to convince Rossi to continue his Ducati contract...

Hayden is so humble and talks fair without hurting anyone,, part of the reason is because he wants to survive

They try but was Dovi that get that Trap..

It doesnt matter if they will fix the bike because suddently later that can happen Dovi is young he will have time, what is importante is that the Rider who let Ducati at more then 33 sec yestarday was Rossi heat that Sucati

Dovi is getting more and more dangerous, some of the moves he pulled on Crutchlow last year were far too strong and this year appears to be no different, you shouldn't be doing that to your team mate.
In qualifying he deliberately got in Barbera's way and then ran him off track just because he dared to be on the bit track Dovi wanted to be on and then kicked out at Barbera on the cool down lap but they were both penalised.
Got to feel story for Hayden being his team mate.

Ii really feel for Hayden it must be hard pushing to the limit and getting nowhere.I hope he has the opportunity to jump ship next season,onto what,I'm not sure maybe Suzuki? What does everyone else think?

In WSB yesterday Ducati had exactly the same problems.
I hope they did not design the 1199 after the GP13.

Last year Rossi had some of the highest speeds in several races so the engine is OK. This is not a drag race. The bike needs to be able to turn.

Audi, Whats up?

@Bmarren. There's nothing wrong with the engine but they need to completely revise the chassis and continue work on the electronics. Once they have those sorted out the machine will be competitive.

lolz, Dovi is dangerous, I guess that makes Marc Marquez an axe murderer. Some of the people on this forum....

Ducati just suck at traction control and they have yet to build a clone of the Honda, no surprises the rear tire gets too hot and they have no traction.
