wouldnt it be something if that part of VR's woes ends up being his stubbornness!

respect that the ducati is DIFFERENT to the yamaha. different settings, different technique, different ATTITUDE. physics do not lie!

i'm hopeful that adopting the "ducati settings" and "ducati style" will turn his campaign around.

*btw, his woes with the front end falling apart ended *most likely because he convinced Ducati to throw away their POS airbox. He has also exposed some of the dirty laundry, so I suspect Ducati will be a better team for it. He just needs to start focusing on his current configuration, less testing, and work on optimizing it for the best lines he can find given the potential of that bike.

Totally agree with Wallymann. I get the impression that Rossi's campaign has turned the corner, admittedly very slightly, and the remainder of the season will see very gradual improvements. I don't think he will get up there with Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa on a regular basis but may be able to mix it with them once or twice.

Looking at Hayden results, it suggests this may be the best Ducati for some time as a result of developing the bike rather than demanding wholesale changes the moment Vale finds something does work, as is possible with his ststus.
