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.

I'm sorry, but, all the upgraded parts in the world are not going to fix a bike that's inherently unbalanced.
When a bike is right, the riders know it immediately, even if it still needs fine tuning and setup.
It's obvious that the Ducati is not right, and wasting time money and engineering effort to fix it, will only result in a repeat of last year.
As long as Ducati keeps the 90deg V, it will never be right. Build a 70deg V and get the basics weight balance correct first, or don't even bother.

Casey is not the only rider who can handle the L-4. & its too early to start calling a bike thats only been tested for less than an off season bad news.

working non stop ...no point if u not listen to what the rider want n feedback
i think the ducati didn't like to listen to people feedback just doing their own cos they think most rider can ride their bike except stoner 2007 champion can master ducati bike after that 2008-2010 fail to master it ( seem stoner push itself very hard to control it - fall many times ) cos they design the cf bike think is the best bike now at sepang II seem that they repeat same mistake...very sad to see rossi ride ducati that cannot match honda and yamaha
i wish rossi will back to honda or yamaha
ducati bike rossi cannot master it

if you want to now the results of improovment, put Casey on this bike, than you can say or it is good enough
Hector is faster as Rossi, Hayden very close wirh health problmes.

Ducati is good enough to win races (not WCH), but with CS, JLo or even Spies on board.

Can people stop harping on about putting Casey on the bike to see how good he is/the bike is!!! Ducati are in trouble, they can't sort their bike out for whatever reason. Like it or not, Valentino is probably one of the only riders that can at least try to help - the aim being to finally rid the thing of all the problems that continually crop up! Never mind going on about Casey being brilliant on it - we all know this, but Casey had a terrible time, so it wasn't a good experience for him either! Ducati need a bike that can be ridden by just about anybody so the plan is to sort it out, or at least to try beacuse it seems no matter what they do, it fails!! Try to give Valentino, Jeremy and the rest of the team a bit of support as it is only going to help MotoGP in the future if they can achieve what they set out to do. It will be a real shame if Ducati end up having to bail out!!!!
