Remember his best results came at a time when Bridgestone made him a special softer front tyre that allowed him to push the front, could this new tyre suit him? Bridgestone always said he would suffer with the old front. His win came on Michelin's
Its a bit much to ask him to do anything without ever riding this bike, but as someone said, he got the best satelitte Ducati results with a 2nd and 3rd.
Who can forget his his pass on Rossi in Turkey that gave the Doctor some of his own medicine yet sent him crying to the officials.

Nothing significant from Elias last visit at US tracks on Ducati GP08 (7th and 12th). So, he wouldn't push the bike too hard. It's a safe called by Pramac to keep Barbera's seat warm.

So, do give too high expectation for Elias. Just enjoy it while it last Elias get back on a MotoGP ride that he missed so much. The bike he hate (Ducati) is actually the that suit him well.

I think it,s a good choise, Elias is a great rider.. he just needs to get the bike that suites his style... one of the most exciting rider to watch, super style.

We all know the ducati is crap, so don,t think he will do any good, but i bet my left nut on it..... way in front of the CRT boys.

Moto2 champ, and wasn,t he the last rider to win on a satelite bike... beating rossi on the line.. that,s world class

Based on the statistics, Toni can get good results. The problem is that he lacks consistency. I'm happy to see him back to the premier class, though. Good luck, Toni!
