You can really hear the bashers worried now. Running out of things to say now? So now you all refer to would have could have should have's??? keep them coming as if anyone cares lol... and I CAN'T HEAR YA!!!

You can clearly see the Duc is more consistent, but it needs to slow down too much on corner entry... it is only saved by the straight line speed on par witht he Hondas, but agree, getting there. As for JLo not being pushed, according to him he was being kept honest or do people just read the headlines lol

Ducati did test here but they also tested at several other tracks and they were miles off the pace of Yamaha and HRC.

The bike has plenty of grunt but it was shredding tyres before half race distance - this doesn't appear to have happened yesterday.

Something must have gone right this time.

Say what you like about VR but Jerry Burgess knows how to set up a bike provided he is given what he asks for from the factory...

there there... guessing about next years now are we?
with the possible exception of Marquez, Bradl and Cal will be in the same spot as this year, i.e. there or there abouts... unless we are having satellite bikes faster than the factory ones next year. I don't think so.

Rossi, for sure knows the ducati isn't going to be competitive next year! They need extra time to find a set-up (mugello, misano couple off weeks ago).

The bikes tyredegradation is better with new chassis and swingarm...

At aragon it will be a realitycheck for ducati! But one thing it show is, ducati had to follow rossi/burgess input... They follow their lead(last 2-3 months) and bike is a bit smoother handling.

Next year he'll be in and amongst the big guys fightinh for the championship!

And about casey, they should have followed his input in ducati too... He chose to jump on the honda in about the right time... When the bike started to turn crap... But as a rossi fan, i can admit that casey was better on the ducati... Numbers don't lie!

You guys make me sick. The hate is so strong that they can t accept that Rossi can still make a good job at Ducati and leave this bike with great packaege for 2013.. Dont worrie girls for now Rossi is midpack because he is waiting for to long for Ducati bring updates, but for 2013 will be diferent story and you girls know that.. Dont tell me that only Pedrosa and Lorenzo deserve the best bikes to Win... They are all very fast but they dont have any balls at least Rossi play on 3 diferent bikes he leave Honda winning and go Yamaha winning and only loss at Ducati, Pedrosa has married with Repsol for long time and dont have one wc Lorenzo is noe marrieing with Yamaha, he thinks to himself WHat?? leave Yamaha?? aim not crasy..ajhahah They are all to fast onn the fast bikes.. Rossi is pure legende and still some people argue with that..

Exactly where his highness will be, so your point is?

Remember there would have been 2 Hondas also in front of him ... so he would have been 4th at best actaully.

But sure the gap to the lead is getting less, but Lorenzo was managing the gap, not pushing 100%.
