Rossi, Stoner, Rossi, Stoner....
Simple fact for anyone with a brain...any Ducati currently on grid = over 1 second per lap slower than Yam's and Honda's. So, put simply it doesnt matter who is on the bike, as it's NOT competitive.

The moment the bike becomes competitive, the moment the factory boys make their way up the grid.
I can't see how difficult it is to understand

Unfortunately also a flawed argument.

When Stoner was winning on the Duc, Hayden was often over a second off the pace. So to see the true nature of the situation, one needs only look at the constant between two eras, ie. Hayden...

I don't think its going to work out, unless the Mods due shortly can produce some sort of miracle, and I don't believe in miracles.

People mention a "swing arm" is what Rossi needs to ride a bike to his potential. I know nothing about the mechanics of a bike. Can someone explain what a swing arm is and how it might help a rider, in particualr Vale??
