It seems like Val & Nicky have been riding CRT bikes. Two World Champion racers, WTF. Audi's money should make a huge difference for 2013. But GP should get rid of the freakin CRT, it makes no sense to have that element in the premier class.

@Dave,Ducati first changed the swingarm,then the engine caracteristics, then the complete frame including rotating the motor ( new casings ), then moved the seat forward at the behest of JB and Rossi all to no avail.
Don't keep spinning the line that Ducati did nothing, they changed more for Rossi in 18 months than the entire time Stoner was on that bike..

Tuesday is D day for Rossi and I can't wait.

Ducati need more development money, and maybe a serious design philsophy review. Of course, 46 would no longer consider riding like a 24 year old. He's not 24. He remains an exceptional rider unlike all of us on here. He will do well with Yamaha but Lorenzo will do better overall. And CS refused a massive offer from Honda who do appreciate his talent unlike some experts on here.

"Lol. Put Casey on it and it would either be parked in the kitty litter or parked in the garage cost he's got tummy ache. It would be funny if we hadn't all seen it for ourselves..."

LOL indeed. Stoner usually parked the Ducati in Parc Ferme...that means most races. As in two out of every three starts. Not twice in three years, like the loser you idolise.

You're obviously confused.

we all know stoner will never return to the duc, cuz he knows he was lucky to have a good bike for 1 year... it all went downhill after that 2. I would love to see him go back to ducati and crash out every week cuz thats what will happen to him if he pushes it like the honda

Sadly, it will not be a true duke anymore with Suter chassis :(
But it might as well bring the team to their victories :)
It would be very ironic if sometimes in the future they switch to a newly developed Audi engine. Ducati will stay responsible of making the badges and stickers....but as a cost cutting

Ducati will stay responsible of making the badges and stickers....but as a cost cutting measure this could also be outsourced to China.
