“Sepang has never been a particularly good track for Ducati: we raced here in October, and the bike hasn't changed much since then."
Really? Au contraire, Nicky.
2010 Sepang Test
1. Valentino Rossi, Fiat Yamaha 2'00.271
2. Casey Stoner, Ducati Marlboro 2'00.512
3. Nicky Hayden, Ducati Marlboro 2'00.703
It has changed a lot since 2010 though hasn't it? Just in the wrong direction.

Tyres, Weight and Engines have changed since 2010.

NO change at Ducati then they had the best chance to change over the last 2 years now lost the best rider/team as a couple of clicks is not enough . and the reality of the situation has now dawned on Nicky and bet your life its also dawned on dovi he neads the pay cheque ok. Ducati moto gp life ends here the japanese production CRT's will blow off the factory red bikes. the ducati is a dinosaur! its desmo system worked when we all went to 800 stoner bike was the missile now all gone to springless valve engines the world caught up. Ducati have great wsbk but their engineers wont talk to gp engineers a total Italian mind set RIP with your embaressment long live the king 46

re: "Hayden said that Ducati should now consider working in two different directions with the Desmosedici"

words uttered by s1 over a year ago. being ahead of the curve on most things, yes is a burden, but one i will not set down. :)

makes me sick, to see how competitive vale is while Nicky is suffering on this piece of garbage. All these people saying Nicky can't ride. He WAS BEATING VALE last year. How do they keep getting it so wrong, nothing new as far as major changes? WTF?

Did Valentino ruin the Ducati in 2011-2012? He changed the bike so much that it lost two seconds. Or can anyone tell me exactly what season did the Ducatis start slowing down? Ducatis easily made 2'00s in 2010.

The Ducs didn't slow down, everyone else got faster with better equipment. Its sad when a sub par satellite M1 is far better then a factory Desmo.

Its time for NH to leave and get on a decent machine. Hes obviously fast with tons of talent and hes a marketing wet dream!

Don't be surprised if we see him on a Suzuki or another bike next year. You have suffered enough young man!
