Well, even though Vale is heading back to Yamaha, I still think he wants Ducati to be competitive. The championship is boring with only 2 competitive bikes, and Vale knows that MotoGP is losing out to world superbikes when it comes to close racing. Without a wider variation of race winners, people, and also sponsors, will begin to look to other forms of Motorsport, leaving this championship clinging for life.

I think Rossi and Ducati will work hard until Valencia to reduce the bikes problems and hand over the D16 as competitive and rideable as possible.

If Dovi can jump on it and get a decent result it could repair some of the damage done to VR's reputation in the eyes of his doubters.

Why bother Bringing all this stuff at this stage?

If Hayden isnt testing the new parts, and neither is Doviziozo, They could be wasting a load of money, since the two riders who will be riding the bike may not like the new parts, or prefer different adjustements to the bike.

I guess they are trying to clean up the mess they made during the season with their lack of updates. Its too late now...

Pitty The Italian collaboration didnt work out. Even so, I hope the red bikes can up their performance, cause Its necessary to have more bikes fighting for the win soon.

PS: Im a SBK Fan, But Id also like to see MGP back on track. CHEERS.

It is in everyone's best interest to get the bike on the podium just once this year in the dry, not to mention just one win. All it would take is just one good result and the damage would be much less for everyone.
You can bet they Ducati/Rossi will do everything in their power to get a good result, short of binning.
