why rossis haters?could not accept that ducatis bike is not a competitive bike since 2007..even stoner made it only only on 2006..maybe in 2006 honda and yamaha had not made a good effort in upgrading thier electronics and fix thier bike to become competitive

2007..its different story honda and yamaha left behind ducati..thats why stoner coudnt get the crown with his ducati..until he left it because of frustation and go to honda..

The facts are there for Ducati to se, stoner, Rossi and every rider to ride it have complained about the same thing! They simply cannot get the geometry correct with the frame with the engine they have. I own and love my Ducati, but its getting beyond a joke, re design it or concentrate on wsb.

re: "It's the end for ducati. not just in motogp, even in WSBK (they) have a problem with panigale, (they) can't even reach BMW times."

FFS how do you know this...? they were rained out at testing, and nobody's turned a wheel under green flag racing...?

Everyone seems to forget ducati problems started when rossi kicked out michelin from gp and bridgestone was to make tyres suited to the yamaha. Ducati have to live with this by changing their phylosophy, wait and see what happens with the tyre development and continue fighting for mid pack slots or leave the series.

I feel for Nicky, but in March, on the Gulf coast of Texas, it is probably going to be a rain out anyway. Waste of money and time. Put the money into a new bike, or at least try to advance the old tractor they race now.

although i kinda agree with one tyre rules ...this premier class of motogp needs to rip up the rule book and let them get on with it .Stoner was right to leave its a two horse race yamaha v honda with the rest making up numbers

Ducati can still win in WSBK, all Pirelli need to do is probably switch to something close to what they produced in 2011.... & the fours will slow down right nicely.

Dont worry folks, its all a game, and you all are the ones being played. Time for Honda/Ducati and some others to form a union and break Bridgestone's monopoly on their tires and the direction they build them in, too long have Yamaha been getting the best end of that stick.
