My opinian and its build by facts 2007 Ducati won the manufactrs and Rider Champion and in 2011 Honda was the same, has him 2012 but was only the manufactrs title, Jorge Lorenzo 2012 WORLD CHAMPION has i say at the beggning of the year that he would win but you guys where Stoner will destroy him is faster.. Guess who Win=)

there there now

Casey fail on that years because in order to be playing at the same level on the top 3 places he have to try to puch even harder because the natural advantages of 2007 stay im 2007, japonses close the gap and then he crash more times because was harder to keep the same pace.. Just like this year with Honda, yamaha close the gap to honda, Lorenzo fight more and win on the initial part of this year to have the extra points he need to keep an advantage until the end of this year.. has we know since Honda fix there bike that Honda had again that aceleration advantage and thats why Pedrosa was so dominant on the final part of the year of 2012.. Was master worck by Lorenzo to keep himself cool and playing at the 2 spot for a lot of times and still was close at the end

vilas, if the 2007 ducati was the best bike on the grid, why then was stoner the only one who had real success with it? He had 10 wins with it, 14 podiums total. the next best ducati rider that year, capirossi, had 1 win 4 podiums. pramac team had 1 podium. Surely if ducati was the best bike on the grid, the other ducati riders would have had MUCH more success. would you not agree?

Yes thats true but i will not speack for other riders because i dont even know the problems that riders had to adpat to the 800cc.. Capirossi had more sucess when he was number 1 at Ducati and Was with 990cc.. After that Loris and Ducati was to forget even worst with the Pramac.. Every year have there Story!! Its true that Casey could adpat better then any other to Ducati but to tell that the 2007 title was only because of is talente nothingh more made me say where was is talente im 2008 2009 and 2010 3 years... Maybe somethingh had change since 2007 that made Casey have more problems

He had a great season in 2008, more poles than rossi and some of his records set in that season still stand to this day. it was only after they switched to the carbon fiber chassis in 2009 when he began to have real problems. even then, he still won 7 times and had 17 podiums from 2009-2010. how do you explain why rossi wasn't even able to be competitive with the ducat after 2 years? i think he was too accustomed to the yamaha and too stubborn to ride the ducati how it needed to be ridden, no?

Honestly m8 i dunno!! For me the real problem is the bike, Ducati was very lost, they try to improve but they dont find the good way to build there parts, they can t put the bike worcking on harmony!! People blain Rossi but if Ducati was becoming worst, really bad since 2009 they never stop until now its my opinian.. Also Motogp never stop and better riders come, other that fail a lot become better and then to keep on the good places is even more harder, all this mix of situacoins made the live harder for one Ducati rider at the momente.. Casey did great he was very hard with the bike and he could find better laps but that is not the point, if the bike is becoming so bad to argue with Japan they have to improve.. The rider have limits that they have to respect we never know hower lucky, on one time puching more harder that we know we can t puch and then if we have one crash that we land bad we can have serious problems.. I remind wayne rainey, i wach is crash several times and

I remind wayne rainey, i wach is crash several times and i can say that i never expect that on that crash the rider would loss is legs just an exemple.. Bikes have to be has good has riders to win on Motogp, you can t be asking to one rider to risk is live for one cause if you notice that they dont worck really hard to improve the bike, Rossi had several comments that talck about Ducati enginers and the way they trust more on there idieas to fix the problem then on riders feedback.. I think with Audi this will change and then Ducati can have one bike that is good for is rider and is rider can feel confidente to puch for the Win..

@ The 2007 Ducati was clearly the best bike of the year
Posted by Vilas

It's only clear to a blind faithful. Anyone who actually looks at the facts, which someone like you who is a blind fanboy refuse to do, will see it differently.

You have to hold onto the "best bike" because it would make any and all arguments that Stoner is actually as talented, if not more talneted than your hero. We can't have that now can we?

What was the ranked Ducati in the standings? The Ducati finished the year 1,2,3 & 4 right? It must have since it was such a FAR superior machine right? There was afterall Capirossi, who barring his unfortunate injury in 2006 very possibly would have taken the title, had to have finished second to Stoner in 2007......right? We are talking about Capirossi, the former 250 champion, who must be better than Stoner because he had a 250 championship right?
