"I like the Ducati in braking. It is very stable. The bike is very strong from the beginning with the cold tyre and the engine is very strong. These are the good areas" - Ducati

Do you know what bothers me? I also have a damaged shoulder and I sure as heck don't want to risk crashing and falling on it. I really do think this is also in Rossi's mind and will be for some time, so I for one do not expect him to be fighting for the front, he now knows that he is mortal and crashing hurts. I wish him sucess though.

Cutting through the fanboy bullsh1t, it would appear that they are working methodically and not being distracted by the world media and fans slating their slow start... you cant bet against JB or VR, theres a reason theyve got soooo many world titles between em

"We call it 'Ducati setting' because it is a more standard setting."
Snippets like that raise more questions than they answer. Whose standard setting? Have they tried to go one direction to make the bike turn more easily and found out that it didn't work?
It must be hard to muscle a bike that isn't turning as easily as you like if your shoulder is weak.

Personally i'm believing that the JB-VR combo will sort many things in this bike in the next months.
If so looks like a really great season ahead.
