Vale this and Vale that...
Instead of spending 40 millon dollars on Rossi, Ducati should have built a narrow angle V4 (like Honda and the rest of them did) to give them more options for weight transfer. The aluminum spare frame alone isn't going to do it. Hopefully the boys at Audi see the light and spend some money on real development.

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?

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.

@factoid, as seen above, the ducati was already crap because a "talent less fraud" placed the yam ahead of the "winning bike" ridden by a master of physics????

Another clue would be that the master never raised a sweat in 07 on the way to 10 wins and the WC, while looking all at sea the first 13 rounds of 10, crashing, changing forks & swingarms more than his jocks to eventually snare 3 wins and a fall on warm-up lap.

Another clue would be rossi took that bike and was immediately 2 secs off pace which 2 years later is still the case. Rossi and his team steamed the degradation at worst.

Dont say nothing mate. The bike never is wrong.
They didnt listen to Vale for two years.
Just do better than your team mate.
And keep looking for other options.
