Never will happen Ducati is garbage. I put my money on Iannone out of the 4 to do okay on the bike.
I don't expect them to be top 5 either, just maybe in the rain, but in dry 7th and 8th or worse

The problem is they haven't got the hardest riders or the best bike, even with Pedrosa or Lorenzo they would probably only pick up the occasional win.

Nicky only won two races the year he won the championship!

Ducati does not have the best engineers or riders so there results are predictable - you can only go so far on luck and hope!

Introducing the GP13 bikes for 2013? Sadly not. Hayden admits they will start the season on last year's bikes with only minor modifications. The bikes unveilled are just 2012 bikes with fresh paint. It's just more smoke and mirrors and broken promises from Ducati.
The only positive aspect is that we will have the best possible comparison on similar bikes in consecutive races between what VR46 did and what Dovi claims he can do.
But will it be Dovi or Vale with egg on their shirt?

@Tetley the outlook is not great and yes a comparison between Vales performance and Dovi suspect they will be similar - that is not good

We had a comparison at the end of Stoners time with Ducati and Vales beginning, momentum was certainly lost with that change and Stoner seemed to give Pedrosa a lift in performance when he showed what was possible on the Honda.

And this year's bike, is in fact, last year's bike!!!

Well I think it's looking like another year of mediocrity for Ducati. The Audi suits will have written this year off already but it's a pity for the riders who'll have another long year of making up the numbers. I just hope they're getting paid well!

#46 will be looking at these pics thinking "Thank f*ck, i'm not riding that thing!"
