He didn't specifically mention anything about front end feeling which I thought is the main problem with the bike so I wouldn't expect anything big to happen because of this next race.

Great job to Ducati though it seems that they are really shelling out some dough for development these last couple of years.

I have to say that for Ducati to be bringing yet another frame and swingarm simply shows they are completely lost.

As everyone else has already stated, it's not the bike - it's the rider.

Grow up you baby. The Ducati in 2009 and 2010 was not as good as the Yamaha or the Honda, but Stoner pushed it like hell, and won on it MULTIPLE TIMES. Unilke Rossi who you can visibly see is gently riding it around trying to change everything so it feels like the Yamaha, because he knows he cant win on it the way it is. If Rossi was the GOAT he would have stayed at Ducati next year trying to make it work. 9 times World Champion. You do realise your including his 125cc and 250cc titles saying that...

Those who says it the rider not the bike obviously knows nothing about racing or bike prep.
Also stoner come from a dirt biking background so he was used with a "bucking bronco" under him and could ride the ducati loose, Rossi never raced dirt bikes so needs a stable bike under him.

I don't think Rossi isn't a great rider I just think that he has no interest in 'pushing' a bike that has no front end feel.

(and no interest in changing his riding style to compensate)
