Rossi's qualifying time was a worrying 3.7sec off pole and he had finished inside the top ten just once during free practice.


3.7 sec off pole and some here saying he being worried is an excuse....lol

@Ducatimatti, sorry to be pedantic but Ducati bend over backwards for themselves, and it's the bike that's not delivering.
You are half right about Casey, it wasn't a walk in the park though. He went 12 races before a win and finished 4th in the championship behind an injured Rossi and an injured Pedrosa.

Preziosi stated that the laguna sece engine will be a big change, no specifications about the engine tough...

Hope they can turn things around...

Anybody who was at Catalunya, and I mean anybody, who knows anything about motorcycles could see and hear that the Ducati is a mutt. The speed is not in question its a case of rideability it is unstable and it does not drive cleanly out of corners. The Honda's and Yamaha's are just so much better, and I am not talking about the works bike all of them. In defense of Rossi I was down with some friend's one of whom had never been to a GP before who commented "how must Hayden feel getting a new one ripped by Rossi". To be honest he has a point he has been on the bike for what four years? And his team mate finishes half a lap ahead of him. Ducati will have to make a huge change to make that bike a winner again.

Hope it stays dry this weekend.We need to see the Ducati making progress in the dry conditions.They cant go through the season hoping for rain to "save the day".
Besides,i got bloody soaked at Silverstone last year and dont fancy it again!

'A one season disadvantage compared to other riders'
Other riders like who ? Bautista, Barbera, Cruthlow ???
Reference riders please. I guess he still figures only Pedrosa,Stoner and Lorenzo are close to his current and amazing form/talent and thereby considers himself disadvantaged in terms of kit.
Hope it rains :)
