re: "Further upgrades are expected for Aragon."

further "attempts" at what are "hoped" to be upgrades. ross and furasawa (the man who invented the bloody thing) already went hammer and tongs. if Da Vinci where alive his nick name for the M1 would be... (wait for it)... "the Moto-Lisa".

Ducati shouldn't spend so much time testing at Mugello. If they bothered to use a few more tracks they might realise that top end speed isn't necessarily the key to fast laps. They might even adopt a two stage injector system like their rivals to give better drive out of the corners, although they'd still be handicapped by weight distribution dictated by the length of the engine. Furusawa should have told Preziosi that wasn't what he meant when he designed Yamaha's championship winning 'long bang' motor.

I really like Rea, he is a good kid. But I hope he doesn't try to achieve too much. He can be a bit too aggressive at times, and not realise the placement of riders around him. Hopefully he gets in full race weekends without having any impact on this awesome fight for the title, or other riders health. I always get nervous with good riders getting top notch machines without much experience, because they might feel they have to perform at a certain level. Pride can get the best of riders, MotoGp bikes take time to understand.

Good luck Rea, keep it clean, and get as much experience as possible.

In fact I would probably go as far as saying iannone is around where he was last year in that top four area. I am not having a go, I rate him and am looking forward to seeing him in the premier class.
