Whenever a rider gets injured in MotoGP they allways seem to put someone on the bike that hasnt ridden in ages why carnt you put some thats has got pace and will be up the front?

maybe these numpties at Ducati can finally see how far back they are compared to Honda and Yamaha when the test rider actually competes in a race.

Vito and the rest of Ducati need to swallow some massive humble pie and admit their idea of a bike is just total junk...

Franco occaisionally gave Rossi, Capirex & Harada a hard time on a 250, but he isn't going to be close to the pace at the Sachsenring. A shame they couldn't get someone decent on the bike. Even Checa would have been a better shout.

As for Ducati overall, I think Vito has to go. Nice guy, crazy guy (anyone else remember his antics as Haga's teammate on the R7?), but since he took over from Livio Ducati have just got worse and worse.

Battaini and Gaureschi just need to give up and move on. These 2 muppets are obsolete & are just boosting their retirements wth these cushy jobs. He'll be battling it out wth CRTs. Can't sugar coat it, they need to go

Franco will be OK. they don't call him Iron Franc for nothing, the guy does like 3 triathalons a day.
The last time Checa threw his leg over a Ducati GP bike he finished 20 last by 20 seconds.

Iron Franc needs to be GP Franc. triathlons are not a prerequisite for a successful GP rider. But hey....
you may request me to eat my cap post race *thumbsup*
