So NSU didn't win two double WCs and then pull out cause they had proved that they could beat the Italians not long after the war and Germany had better things to do with their money.
BMW won the sidecar events for years.
MZ was in some ways years ahead in two stroke development until Ernst Degnar done a runner to Suzuki.

The best move from Ducati since they try to change the Team.. This guy can enjoy bikes and allready put is mind worcking to build good bike but then when genius run out of ideas is better to replaced or they will do **** with desperate moves to try to fix somethingh.. He have to be praud because the genuine bike is allways the first and he design that bike, that i have to say it could be hard bike on first years but Ducati made great races and to be honest i enjoy a lot the idea of the engine of the Twin Pulse sistem!! The model Desmocedisi that people can by have the same ideas of the 2003 to 2006 Gp bikes and its a cool bike.. So its better for him to accepet that he allready try is best and now Ducati need somethingh fresh he try for so long to fix the problems, and never change nothingh, now Ducati have to ask for Help to Suter..eheh Its bit humiliating but its like this when people dont listen to riders and they dont have an open mind to think, they will have problems, what save D

Most situations in Italian political life - and Ducati WILL be all about politics - is created to some extent by machismo - Italian males overflow with it. Gobmeier will still have to deal with this both up and down the chain. It will be interesting to see who has the actual engineering strategy directorate. Both Casey and Vale would have tried to change things with Vale having the best insight - due to his nationality. Casey, knowing Casey would use Aussie logic and clearly he gave up on it - remember he'd struggled with Italian teams for most of his GP career. This WILL be interesting! Good luck Mr G!

what save Ducati from this questions right now was Dorna that change the rules to 800cc and suddently Ducati have a good bike because if the rules had continued on 1000cc people would star to wonder if Ducati was one Team that can only cach some wins and was more like a Top 6 Team insted of one Team like Honda and Yamaha that are allways title contenders..
