Im pretty sure he'll do better than Rossi. Rossi was only 'just' able to beat Hayden, and i dare say that if not for Haydens injury, it would have all gone down to the last race again like it did last year.

I do think that Dovi will beat Hyaden by a bigger margin than Rossi though, so make of that what you will.

Of course if he does do well, then we all know it will be all Rossi's doing lol!

Typical hater, in Rossi's move he'll be blamed by haters in either case. Nevertheless it should be interesting and will probably take Dovi a bit of time to get used to the V4 bike but with a conventional chassis it shouldn't be too weird for him. Hopefully after a few races with the new chassis and swingarm Ducati will have a new and improved direction for next season. With Hayden staying for consistency I think they'll be fighting closer and possibly in front of Satelite bikes next year. One can hope.

i like dovi so best of luck to him in his quest to over come the struggling ducati gp team as for people saying stuff about rossi and getting credit if it all turns out well it was nicky who said that the team is taken his direction for the bike more over than that of rossi so, but its to be expected as rossi fellout with ducati after the first race as we all witnessed when the bike was clearly not going in the direction that he had requested, for sport sake lets hope that audi sort out the problems im a rossi fan and a motogp fan and i want the sport to have me on the edge of the seat again with those last lap battles so thanks to all you pilots looking forward to 2013 season already ...............and best of luck to casey and your family for the future

Unless something major happens with Ducati's machinery by the start of the 2013 series (unlikely), I expect colosal criticism leveled at them when Dovi, Spies, Hayden etc. can't perform at the front. And it'll be well deserved I'm sad to say.

Dovi just messed up his career with he move to Ducati... AND, if it's true that Ducati went in the direction of Hayden's input rather than Rossi's, then they messed up too!

I look forward to watching all 4 ducati riders next year. Great riders, hopefully at least one of them gets to the front and fights for wins. The series needs it badly

There were only 4 riders that ever consistently ran at the front and now there will be only 3. Unless one of them is on your bike you will not be at the front and Ducati thought they had one of those riders, thought they still did for 2011-12 and do not have one now.

There is no chance of Ducati running up front (without rain) and be realistic, it has little to do with the bike regardless of how good or bad it may be.
