MotoGP » Ducati: Full upgrade package for Laguna Seca


"We will not have the total package at Mugello. This is unfortunate, because Valentino likes the race a lot and it is our home track" - Filippo Preziosi.

..... and so the sorry saga continues.

The dream team is now finished, only the blind would disagree.

The final act will be played out at the end of the year when Rossi and Burgess retire.

A sorry end to a once great champion. RIP Vale.

Funny, but Rossi is begging for that kind of engine since the start of the 2011 season... LAST YEAR! And Ducati this year brough an abrupt & wild engine, like always.
If Rossi is angry, he got a very good reason for that... And Laguna seca!!??? Laguna seca? Man, they should have that engine Rossi is asking from the beggining of this year, from the start.
Hey preciosi, you are a fool, you should be out from ducati! I want the head of Preciosi, Right now, you and the factory do what you like and don't listen to the riders. You were that fool that changed to carbon fiber that nobody liked!
I feel sorry for rossi, for been in a team with those idiots.

My God take on the so called great and you end up making a brand new motorcycle at who knows what cost and will he win on it, I don't think so judging from his time with Ducati. Boy would it not have been a lot cheaper to keep Casey pay him a few million a year more and just improve the bike slightly. I remember the days of the greatest Mike Hailwood who could jump from one bike to another and win and as for some people claiming Rossi is better than Ago thats another joke.

London Al.....but maybe with VWAudi group onboard VR will sense a change MUST be coming. German firms, especially car companies, do not associate themselves with failure, and I think they will throw a lot of money/resources at the problem.
No longer are Ducati going to be a relatively small, underfunded, slightly chaotic Italian constructor.
It's inevitable that they will bring people in from their succesful race division, and it may be uncomfortable for existing staff. but, in the end they will prevail.

"Who's lying ?? "

Italians don't lie, people just mis-interpret what they say.

Given that Rossi and Ducati are both Italian they are probably being mis-interpreted equally!!!

Stoner back to Ducati? I can't see it somehow.

He's currently on the best bike which he can win WCs on. If it takes half a season for Ducati to give riders the upgrades they want, how are Ducati ever going to catch up with mega corporations like Yamaha and Honda.

Stoner has learnt his lesson from over-riding a flawed package and managed to get out without hurting himself. Would he put himself in that position again?

Ducati hit lucky in 2007, I don't see it happening again...
