If you were a Ducati engineer, would you not ask the question,
Why does no other competitive motorcycle manufacturer use carbon
Fiber swing arms or chassis? Now I'm no engineer but I do know
That carbon is too stiff and that when a bike is mid turn the chassis
Needs to flex

Well let me put this straight.

Over the years we have people who bash Rossi and his performance, but yesterday was pass the the point.

Rossi delivered a good result yesterday, ditto for Hayden, and some awkard people over here sais that Vale was Lucky :/ Something that made me laugh real hard was that people were making the ''Team-Order'' excusse. That just shows you that kind of Hate that these people have for The Greatest of All Time over here.

Hayden told the total opposite on Gpone and on his twitter page, even the word-play he had with Rossi in the garage.

Both Valentino and Nicky did awesome yesterday.

Oh...let me say this real quick to that individual ''Dukati-Fan'' that made the most stupid post, saying that Vale was on the best bikes for a decade thats why he's was good, now he is on the worst and he is doing bad.

For the record.

Valentino won on 500cc Honda/ Self-Developed.
In 2003 he even won on the Satelite-Gibernau Honda, hence the Malaysia-Swap.

And the Yamaha was

...Wasn't the fastest bike, matter-fact it was the worst bike. Valentino made it was it is today. The Best Bike.

Rossi is THE Greatest of all time, no wonder y'all mocking, cough...cough Hating him :)

*D~mn, a 2 paged comment for the haters, but it was worth writing this*

I rest my case.

They are both doing the best with what they got and havent shown signs of giving up yet. They both are known for working hard, they will improve, not to challenge for a win but catching the likes of Dovi Spies and Simo will equate to a 'successful' season for Du-Cat.

Basic problem is the bike .Vale is doing his best with what he has.It is the CF .Neither Burges nor vale have experience with this.Hope Dicati will change over to metal chassis soon.I am Happy vale has not lost his sprit and given up.Hope by end of the season some more podium finishes are managed.

Good call Immortal Technique

Just by winning 7 championships in the GP class and mastered the murderous, dangerous most notrious of bike of them all. The Honda NSR 500 2 stroke machine.

Now that's real skill right there.

He will get that Ducati sort out, till then the haters keep on yelling like ladys, just like they did in 2007 lol.

No matter how positive people want to be,there is no question that Ducati are in serious trouble this season.You only have to look at how far behind the winners they are to see it.I know 6th and 7th place may not sound too bad but it is the gap between those positions and the guys at the front that tells the story for me.I sincerely hope that they can turn things around but it looks like a forlorn hope to me.I hope they prove me wrong.

Hoppy you're right, Ducati is in big trouble, but can you atleast tell the Rossi bashers to blame it on the Motorcycle and not on Rossi his talent.

If he didn't lost the front in Jerez, he would have blasted the field.

Hence the fastest lap times and his pace. Best of them all.

Go Rossi!
