Did you follow Sachsenring to Indy??? Dani was clearly better, he was getting better and better. Last year Casey had no chance of defending his title. and for Jorge vs Vale in 2010. lol Vale suffered from a much severe injury compared to Casey in 2012, yet he came, won Sepang from 11th pot and finished races in front of Jorge more than one occasion.

and yes I understand premier class more than you do. at least since 1999.

At the same Sepang test last year Rossi finished 1.2 seconds from the front which means

1. He's a better rider than Dovi and Hayden
2. The ducati was as bad as he said it was
3. Rossi and Burgess were right all along

All the bickering back an forth is pointless, there were many factors that have no simple answer Read the following and get a better grasp on what the real deal was.
Do a google and paste in the following:

So no development since last year.

have Ducaudi wasted the entire off season, like they wasted the last two years and who knows how much money?
Ducati spent over thirty million euros to make VR46 and Ducati look Crap.

Go figure

Ducati has become the laughing stock of motogp, only competitive in WSBK. I think that its quite obvious that revolution is needed. Aprilia tried to stick with their cube engine concept with riders Haga and Edwards and look how well that turned out due to them trying to force something that wasnt competitive. Unfortunately it will take something extremely drastic for things to change with their company. possibly Ducati's exit and Suzuki's return would be just the shot that Moto GP needs!

re: "have Ducaudi wasted the entire off season"

look, it's their detail now. the germans said they're just baselining. whether german, japanese, italian, 'merican, or brit, an engineer has to first be able to trust his data before he goes pissing money down a rat hole on revisions. society's TRULY intelligent people don't just show up and start making modfications to things they know nothing about. they ask questions and gather information.

@ Paul Joiner

There is NO WAY that we want ducati to leave motogp. !!
There is not enogh proto type bikes as it is, and, Suzuki arnt going to come back and all of a sudden start winning races!!
Ducati can and will get around this problem. Im sure that they finaly realize they have to do something drastic to fix it, and im sure that they are working on it right now!!
They are not silly and they are not BAD bike enginers. they have been building competative bikes for over 50 years.
Come on Ducati, you have a new tech director, and Audi money.
Get your sh!t together!!!
