Dovi's going to find it difficult to keep up with Hayden, who's a rear-wheel rider. Just like Vale, Dovi is a finesse rider who gels with a bike that can enter hard on the brakes, corner on rails and has a good-feel to the front end. Dovi has had a career that strongly parallels that of Melandri's, which was 2nd rate compared to the pedigree of riders like Vale, Jorge, Dani & Casey. I wish him well, but I fear a season similar to Spies last year on the factory M1. He's going to be looking for another ride 7 months from now.

What a load. Dovi is hardly second rate and he showed, changing from Honda to Yamaha, that he can change his style to suit a new bike. He's a bloody clever rider that will be a good edition to Ducati. Can't be any worse than that first class guy that just left.

The four I mentioned are 1st Class by virtue of them all being title winners, but Dani. He's tops because he's given the other multi-time champs a headache for years now. Dovi had his best year on the best bike in the paddock in 2010. Never said there was anything wrong with him.

Qatar 08.. Andrea debut on the sat Honda.. Gave Vale a run for his money that race.. I think it was for 4th or 5th.. I knew then he was a talent.. Didn't prove me wrong.. IMHO he will outperform Nicky.. Here's hoping he does good.. God knows we need that bike at the front..

I think Ducati's livery become worst eversince Rossi came to that team. Last year we see red, yellow and white livery with number 46 in the middle that when you look at it, it look like a moaning face.. or a moaning fish.. looks very silly. very very ugly indeed. I like desmosedici in the early years..bold and beautifully red.
