Ducati was only a reasonble bike on loris times because of the rule that allow more tyres suplay.. Like Nakamoto say it made a lot of diference to wach Satelite bikes winning races and other oficial brands where more competitive at some tracks

You got to be joking mate, since their first year in GP racing they have won at least one race every year and were there or there about, sorry that a certain someone was the first to break that run of win/wins so even if the bike was (I know every one knows)not rider friendly it still was possible to win on it even Troy Bayliss had a win on it, not saying he's a bad racer he himself said he'd had his chance but being an Aussie after his time on the bike and he was not impressed by his time on it he moved on unlike some who never won a race and never will but will hang in there to the death he got out to let new blood in, fair play to him.

The Germans who run Audi are not chumps, these are intelligent men who demand results.

And they will get results. They will put out 4 full factory bikes, Pramacs will be the same as the others.

The previous Ducati leaders were not just poor or dumb, they were arrogant. They simply refused to face reality.

The Germans will not tolerate this nonsense. Don't underestimate them.

Go wach the standings since 2003 and tell me if Ducati was a competitive bike.. Ducati was allways there but it was most of the times at the start of the races and like Nakamoto had say was multi tyre supplay effect.. Him 2007 Ducati was clearly supirior im terms of engine and Ducati had the bridgstone tyres that where the best.. him 2007 even Suzuki had is best year has a Team and on other years Suzuki was no where on the Standings.. After 2008 Ducati had 2 with Casey and i had admit Casey was allways faster then the other Ducati riders but loock at the gap compared to Rossi him 2008 only because Rossi the Bridgstone tyres and yamaha had solve the Power problem that surprissed Every japonese manufacter him 2007.. After this good performances but no more titles of Casey Ducati was gone and japonese always upgrade since that year him 2007.. Ducati have to find a new way at get on the level and they need to build a new worck and follow that worck, during this 2 years Rossi Duca

during this 2 years Rossi Ducati had try to fix with there ideas, they start to build somethingh new wish means they need time to understand but now they are following one direction and this can bring a better product to 2013.. But I tell you the same for me Ducati will not build better then Honda or yamaha..

I really hope ducati can move forwards now to make gp more interesting.Did anyone else notice after the last race how Rossi went into the pits and just ignored Preziosi?Without him hopefully the design/weight distribution can be changed so everyone can ride it.

what about the post-bridgestone control tire era? Hope they get the tires working, otherwise it will probably be a repeat of 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Ducati have had no clear direction the last 2 years and have achieved nothing in terms of progress.
Now with Rossi replaced by Dovi they don't even have hope!
Not to say Dovi isn't a good rider but he had his chance on the Honda and never shone
