Hayden is the first Ducati rider running high 1.39s for the whole week! Why the bike is capable running that pace? Why? Why?

Ducati CF not suppose to do that. The L4 engine engine not supposed to do that too if the rider were not Stoner. Is it the bike or is it the rider?

Whos fault is that?

Is Ducati sure the problem is really the bike? It's the first Nicky's race with GP11.1 and he's lapping very near the top, something Rossi has never came close to get this year. It seems to me the problem is not exactly the bike.

I usually don't place much weight on what I see in warmup, particularly slower times. Hayden's time however is a quarter of a second quicker than his qualifying time. No doubt they've made a change that has worked. Nice to see.

You can always tell how well Casey goes based on the anti Rossi comments.. That's all there is to start with so I guess it doesn't look like a run away at the mo.. Truth is this is the first race Casey has looked like winning in the last seven, the last two the fastest guys made mistakes... Whether Nicky has a good race or not, 5th in a seas of 9ths and 10ths is not a good enough bike... Neither is 4th.. Ducati need to start each weekend with a shot at the top spot and that will never happen with the current config.. Ducati are just too proud to admit it...
Now the grip is improving the yams and other riders are gaining their confidence and yam their corner speed back and it's all they've got against the power of the honda..Go Yamaha..

It sure will be interesting race if it's true that tires are shot after about 5 laps. Many riders have stated it. I'm not too thrilled about it because it sounds quite dangerous.
