We all know what Valentino and Jeremy Burgess said about the Ducati and Casey Stoner, but we also all know that nobody thought the bike was as bad as Casey made out!!! We all know this now, and it has been said over and over again - everybody sympathises with what Casey went through and how hard it was for him!! Valentino and Jeremy are desperately trying to sort it out - Casey couldn't, so they are doing everything in their power! If they continue to fail then they wont have done anything other than try - that's all anyone can ask!!

The pressure is on Ducati from all sides. Rossi has broken his silence to say how unhappy he is, DORNA have said that Ducati must not ne responsible for Rossi leaving MotoGP because of uncompetitive machinery and the CEO of VW /AUDI has said he thinks it is embarrassing that the bike is not good enough & in his opinion the bike needs scrapping and redesigning from the ground up by someone with experience of aluminium race bikes.

Considering the announcement is expected on Wednesday that VW has completed its buyout of Ducat I would expect things to change soon

I would love to ask Valentino what more could Ducati do? Honda and Yamaha had to slightly modify their 800cc bikes. Ducati had to make a dual spar frame for the first time ever. In total, including the Grand Prix, they have had 12 days testing on an almmost 100% new bike. So his whining is a slap in the face for the engineers and Ducati staff who have put in a huge amount of effort and time. They should have got the award, not him. They have suffered this week knowing their "star recruit" has publicly accused them of not giving him what he has asked for.

Doesn't seem to be the meltdown certain people were hoping for, but its definitely still far from ideal. I hope he does well in monza to get some of his confidence back.

courage and confidence is what he needs now,
he's already had a hard time

mocking at someone who's feeling down isnt an appropriate behaviour
a cheers from motogp fans would be a major boost for him
