MotoGP » Checa to test GP12 for Ducati?

The Spaniard would be the ideal solution for Ducati in its efforts to maintain a consistent development curve on the GP12.

@horse well not exactly. What I am saying is that if you follow the trend then Stoner would have managed one win for the season with a corresponding increase in Dnfs to say 6 or 7. This would have left in position 6 or 7 on the wc. Why because I feel that the Hondas made a step up in terms of performance but also simply numbers. Rossi unlike Stoner knows that another serious accident means curtains so yes he is riding conservatively but to me that is as much about the bike. Rossi needs a bike with a sure front end because his major weapon is under braking. The weak point on the Duc is corner entry which hurts Rossi more than Stoner who drives with rear wheel (i can admit his superiority in this area) but cannot agree his god like status because like any alien on a sheet bike he will never win a wc. Like I have always said great rider on great bike equals WC.

I'd like to see Capirossi become Ducati's test pilot along with Bayliss... Having Checa have a go is not a bad idea either... Got to be better than the job Battaini is doing I think...

The unfortunate situation for Ducati is that anyone who can ride the GP11.whatever fast enough to provide useful feedback should really be riding it in Motogp, since they have yet to find anyone who can ride it fast. They really need to pull their finger out and design something that suits Rossi's skill set if they want to get back to winning races and getting podiums regularly. The chances of finding a Stoner replacement don't look very good at the moment.

why dont ducati build a 1200 gp bike and if they cant race that pull out of moto gp and go to a all ducati championship then we can get some propper racing in wsb and gp and all the duc fans can watch one winning every race and be happy but someone would still cheat on ccs then
