One can pretty much guarantee it is already a much better bike than it was last year. Watch out, this is going to be a hell of a year. These guys know what they are doing.

Preziosi on Rossi's Ducati Test: "I asked Val a favor: Not to work on searching for lap times because that requires time to work on all aspects of set up. The main goal for that test was to decide which firing order we use. We don't need to be really fast until Qatar."

"Valentino is very accurate in his feedback. But even so, the most surprising thing about him is the way he describes what is happening with the bike and how calm he is. He found the good things in all the configurations we tried and he explained why the bad things were not working."

JB sounds like a very good chef. I know its not really that simple to sort these things but is the new Ducati just the same recipe (Chassis wise) as Mick Doohans old 500?
To all the Vale fans above is irony.
It looks set for a fabulous season hope they can all stay fit and battle to the end Can't wait.

Sounds upbeat, but don't read too much into this. Saddam Hussein sounded even more upbeat in the weeks leading up to the war. What happened after that?

Im looking forward to seeing what Rossi does in 2011, personally i think he will finish in 3rd place behind Stoner and Lorenzo.

Happy Birthday Shoya Tomizawa, 20 today, never forgottten. RIP #48
