What is it going to take for Ducati to realise their bike is a waste of time? They can try every rider under the sun, but it is the bike they need to sort out! All Ducati are succeeding in is ruining the racing career of anybody that is daft enough to ride for them!!

Maybe...just maybe. Ducati have signed 3 unknown quantities on their bike to do exactly what has not been done before. Give masses of unbiased feedback and progress the bike around new blood not the old soldiers? Just a thought really as surely there has to be some kind of plan !!

It must be soul destroying for Nicky to arrive at a test and put in 150+ laps with nothing to test. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is the 3rd test in a row where the only thing he can test is that the foot pegs are in the right place for him.
Dovi has come in knowing that the Ducati is very difficult to acclimatise to. Either Audi have made him some promises, or he thinks he can adapt his style to suit the bike.
Or just maybe he has learnt what he needs from the experts on here.
Whatever, I fancy him to beat Nicky in the very near future.

Nicky is such a hypocrite, I remember when Vale said the bike is bad, he said it is the best Ducati I ever sat on. Sorry Nicky, you better find yourself a place and keep that soft spot in your heart for Toni for giving you a free title in 2006.

When did Nicky beat Rossi??? in Qualy? points? or podium or in race? Nicky finished in front of Rossi only when he had problem with his bike and there was something strange happened. Always remember your hero nicky only won 3 races in entire his premier class career. Rossi won more races while on that mighty Honda vs Rossi on Yamaha. and the time when he struggled to beat his team mate Dani. lol you are angry to see how Rossi can be competitive on M1?? is Hayden any better than Spies?? the same level at best, and he ended where in the championship with that mighty M1?? nowhere. Nicky should be riding a CRT at best. You comparing him to Rossi?? you must first win 9 titles in all categories and do what Rossi has done to be compared to him. Put Nicky on that mighty Honda and he'll at best get 6th in the standing. the most overrated rider. He doesn't deserve factory ride.

Rossi got beat by his teammate. Yamaha backed Lorenzo. Rossi then went to Ducati and took all their development money and put it in his pocket.
But MOTOGP needs Ducati. Adds a European spice to the championship.
Let's hope they turn it around.....

@ Missingthe500s

Lol you probably heard that from your pub mate. you think a team can beat Honda with a billion dollar budget??? lol how much was Vale's salary? 15m dollar??? lol Do you know how much is Honda's budget? A billion dollar. Try harder.

@ Sam

What are you talking about? I never said that Nicky beat Rossi. I was responding to a post in which SOMEBODY ELSE said that Nicky was beating him last season. Read again! I quoted a post by “nyvandal”.
