Never knows why he does....True. Always expects wins but does not have the capabilities. Had all the chances with Honda which proved the capabilities were not there, and never produced.
A bit of a dreamer and I dont think ever will be a winner.

I don't agree with you...It is the best season of Dovi,I belive he shows his class almost all of the races(naturally he also had bad races too) and he wins most of his fights vs another riders...I couldn't imagine that a squad like tech3 doesn't have the best brake kit,it has defined all of their weekend...

And when Dovi has raced for hrc in 2009,they had an incalculable and unimproved bike with showa suspension,which has been developed by Pedrosa,Dovi has developed the bike in 2010 with better results and they have gone up...hrc used the super,new gearbox and they won the wc...so he only has the best bike in 2011 when his contract expired and I guess hrc didn't support Dovi like Stoner in the last season...

Dovi is a great rider, but he does not fit in very well in to the 'scene' hes not Spanish, and hes not Rossi. A lot of riders get passed over, and very few get the same kind of attention like a Jorge Lorenzo, or Marc Marquez. Dovi has a great attitude, but he does not have a factory backing him, if Ducati get it right next year, you might see Dovi hitting back even harder, but Ducati are young in many aspects related to QUALITY engineering, and Bridgestone turned out a very unfriendly set of tires for that bike.

As long as Dovi stays cool, doesnt get his head full of junk like some of the top riders he will keep flying straight.
