MotoGP » Ducati 'working non-stop in all areas'

“We have three different groups of designers - engine, chassis and electronics - all are working non-stop, so for sure we will continuously supply new parts in all these areas” - Filippo Preziosi.

If Filippo Preziosi is telling Valentino when certain things are going to happen and how,it appears Valentino is not getting everything he wants, when he wants like some people keep saying!! I suspect Filippo Preziosi wants to stay in a position where it is down to him, and only him, if and when anything is changed on his precious Desmosedici Ducati!! I also think Preziosi thinks he knows better than Valentino what the Ducati needs and when it needs it or he wouldn't be dictating the way he is! If you ask me, it is no wonder Ducati are still behind with their bike as I have a feeling it is mainly Preziosi that is putting the mockers on everything Valentino wants to be done as it will be a bit of a slap in the face for Ducati and their "unique" bike!!!!!!

Shouldn't the guy who is responsible for designing and making the parts be telling the guy who is riding the bike when things are going to happen? Rossi doesn't design or engineer or fabricate any parts - he's a rider. When is this going to sink in people's head?

Valentino GOT everything that he asked for a long time. But VR doesn't have the answers, HE IS NOT AN ENGINEER! They need to stop giving him what he wants because the DUC was a fast, winning bike before he got there. New frame? good job VR. ,what a joke! "I want rocket thrusters and power steering" Some people believe anything. There is no "parts" or "bits" that are going to be fitted that will magically give VR even a half a second per lap. That's a fact! It's all up to VR and JB to tune/tweak what they have and learn how to ride it. ,,It's nothing less than hilarious what people believe about a PR response to a journo's question, when you know everyone at Ducati want to answer every ridiculous question with "none of your business".
"Non Stop"? on what, and imitation Honda or Yamaha?

It takes time to mold a lump of clay in to a fine vase. Ducati's bike right now is the most lumpiest bit of clay, on par with the CRTs. You guys really should be more patient in your observations. Ducati might need to go through a couple more iterations with their frame and even swing arm before everything is ironed out, Vale gave himself half a year, last year, this seems like a realistic expectation, this year, especially given that the riders can test more this year.

I loved that term "the plucky Italian Factory" -- good one! Kudos to the journalist on that one. Very cute. Now we have the Kerpen born ace, The Fromme born ace, etc. and the plucky Italian factory.

Plucky though they might be, they are in trouble plenty, I think. I wonder how deep the talent is there compared to the Japanese companies. It's not just the euros spent anymore -- you've got to have the right ideas.

Some guys on this site are so convinced in their own minds that Rossi develops and engineers his bikes that they can no longer be bothered to listen to facts that prove otherwise.They wont even accept it from the mans own lips!
Rossi has said in interviews that he simply rides the bike.The engineers put the damn thing together and try to fix problems.Why do people find that so hard to believe?

I'm one of the few on this site that is not enjoying the Rossi/Ducati troubles. To me they are all doing their best and Rossi is putting in more laps than most(no wonder he is looking tired)
Don't forget that when Stoner wasn't putting the Duc on the podium he was throwing it at the scenery. I respect the guy's win or bin style, exciting to watch, but he was so lucky that he didn't badly hurt himself.
