'The work we did in the test was definitely positive, but we also tried a set-up today that I really liked, and which allowed me to be faster' - Valentino Rossi

Something tells me Ducati and this guy are going to sort the bike out just in time for his departure. Dovi and Spies might just be making a great move

0.76 seconds off Dani's pole and in front of Spies & Dovi is a good step forward. Perhaps the upgrades are starting to sort out the Ducati - it'd be ironic if they get the bike more competitive by the end of the season just as Vale waves good bye to the Ducati.
Pity he didn't feel able to stick with it and fight for podiums next year instead of going back to safety at Yamaha. After all, he's just gone faster than Spies who's on Vale's bike next year!
Let's hope for a good competitive race tomorrow.

@ John and jjjj

That would be a serious case of irony, but a welcomed case nonetheless. If he finishes these last few races strong - and the Ducati progresses - it'll be good for everybody.

Yeah sure, when Dovi and Spies get decent results it will be down to Rossi's development skills! LMAO

Cannot wait for Lorenzo to destroy the myth once and for all next season. Rossi will probably get beat by Marquez in his rookie year, despite the bike advantage.

@ aeolus

I know! Wishful thinking, but I suppose that it's not beyond the realm of possibility. We shall see how Misano plays out.

@ TedG

If it were further forward with a longer swingarm, one would ask (again!)...."Ducati, what the f--k took you so long??"
