Ducati come in for a lot of stick, and maybe some of it is warranted. We need to face it though, that even if Audi gave them a budget bigger than Honda's, with the limited testing the opportunities to make the package better mean the odds are stacked against ANY team being able to take it to Yam & HRC, as they have already got sorted packages that just need tweaking, not full development.
Unless they get lucky and bring out a solution that just clicks, then its unreasonable to expect dry race podium potential from anyone except JL,DP,MM & VR.
The interest is how the 4 Ducati pilots will do overall, and in the inter-Ducati competition. I'd like to see them truly competitive, just find it unlikely.

Interesting thing between Nicky & Dovi. Nicky is a known yardstick against Rossi's performances on the Ducati (there wasn't a lot in it in track pace).

So, we ought to (after giving the lad a chance to bed in over a few races perhaps) be able to have some gauge of Dovi's ability v Rossi's by using Hayden as the yardstick?
Isn't Nicky also on a 1-yr contract? So Nicky has to give Dovi a hard time all season if he hopes to keep that ride into 2014 (as well as beat the Pramac pair)?
