MotoGP » Stoner: The bike just wanted to throw me off

“Everything we're doing, trying to reduce the chatter is just making the bike difficult to ride. We're going to have to rethink things again and come out fresh tomorrow” – Casey Stoner.

The difference between Honda and Ducati! When a problem occurs at Honda they set about finding a solution for the rider. When a problem occurs at Ducati they spend a month or two trying out different sauces with their pasta to see if it helps, if that does not work they take radical steps and change the type of pasta!

He is getting better and better. The bike is almost unridable but he is "not too worried about finding the pace, it was just a little bit disappointing this afternoon".
He should have been writing scripts for action movies.

re: "Stoner, who remained on the harder rear tyre this afternoon, also revealed that he had used a new chassis to try and improve the ongoing chatter issues.

We tested another chassis but haven't found many positives with it yet, in the morning it felt like we had slightly less chatter in the front, then this afternoon no real benefit, perhaps a little worse, he said."

the take away here is HRC boffins are finally punched in, and that spells trouble for everybody. in the fable of the tortoise and the hare, remember it's the turtle who eventually does the "owning".

Well, its not like it could be those wonderful tyres is it? :rolleyes:

How to ruin a series in one easy step.
Bridgestone, we salute you.

BTW How much did you say Jorge bunged you?

He will sort things out. He's good at working around issues. Unlike other riders who lack the 125cc and 250cc experience but overall motogp is top of the top so fractions can mean a lot.
