MotoGP » Rossi: Ducati front-end feeling 'not far' from Honda


“The turning of Yamaha is still better, because I think it is the best bike for that. Compared to the Hondas - it was a long time ago - but now I think we are not so far” – Valentino Rossi.

I wonder why they don't have chatter? I know Rossi is some sort of ambassador or official tester for Bridgestone, but I wouldn't want to suggest some sort of conspiracy now...

All looks good and close so far. However two things Casey is still in a class on his own and second what are they doing letting bikes out that are 10 seconds off the pace. The fast lads will find them just dangerous.

FTR must be pleased they can produce a better chassis than Ducati ever could.

Pity they'll never get full credit for it though.

Still only as good as an old Honda it seems.

"Still only as good as an old Honda it seems."

Actually it's not as quick as an old Honda that had a 200cc defecit. Stoner the only man to beat last years 800 time.
Hopefully Ducati can close the gap, however in recent seasons the Ducati could circulate comfortably 1 sec off the pace, it was only when pushed at ten tenths that the problems manifested themselves

Eduard from 10 sec off pace to 4 sec, who say CRT bike aint fast, and this in only 3 day testing with a injury rider, i bet when hes is fully recover the gap reduce to 1,5sec or 2 sec for the first year of CRT not bad
