Hi
Can someone see any point with the CRT's when they are about 2 sec slower than SB bikes, no wonder Stoner left 2014 we see Rossi JL Dani MM on CRT's slower than Moto2
Cheers Claes

it's nothing new, in 2012 wsbk have been about 2nd row material if they were in motogp, if you compare times in some tracks

wsbk is as fast, cheaper, and 10 times more spectacular, and you can actually buy the bikes...

time to dump motogp

@lean two
I agree 100%, Hayden does work hard to ride that Ducati. Riding on that piece of rubbish does not show his true potential. I hope that after 2013 he at least gets a satellite Honda or Yamaha ride in MotoGP. If not he should move across to WSBK. He might even win another world title by moving across to WSBK. It's better to be on a satellite bike in MotoGP than the factory Ducati, and it's better to be on a WSBK than a CRT bike! :)

AUDI said... Ducati remains Ducati.

Now AUDI realises that that attitude will not produce podiums.

A long road ahead for Ducati. If it gets worse then I think they should consider leaving motoGP.

If I am not wrong, GP is a live lab for developing 2 wheels, which will translate it to WSBK, MOTO2, MOTO3, street bike etc, and the Japs are pouring money into it so they can benefit the result and develop their other class of bike, so it is not unusual they reserve huge fund for it and would want to develop their bikes as fast as they can. The Hondas and the Yams and the Ninjas are selling like hot cakes around the world

I'm not sure why so many people get caught up in testing times but let me break it down for those who do not understand. When you are evaluating new components on a multimillion dollar 250hp+ motorcycle, your objective isn't lap time, especially right now. These bikes are so sensitive to the smallest of changes that it takes a true professional to know they must slow down to understand the differences in settings before they go any faster.

Ducati should never have let the Lactose Legend leave to Honda. He would have crashed the bike enough times to have broken enough parts to have warranted enough redesigns which in turn would have sorted out the problems just by sheer luck.
