Sounds awful (obvious?) to say (especially as a Ducati fan)... but it's becoming quite evident that what Ducati needs is a 'totally-new-from-the-ground-up' bike... built from a completely different design philosophy (which ultimately - sorry to say - will simply have to copy the Japanese).

Casey abandoned it... Nicky's been struggling with it... Valentino spent two years trying to pull a rabbit out of it... and now Andrea's telling it as it is.

Here's hoping that Audi ownership (read:- pots of money) and new leadership (Bernhard Gobmeier) will help turn things around.

Please give me a breack with that Stoner stuff!! I think that everybody understand that Ducati is very bad bike and thats enaught said.. Rossi had try on this 2 years to get reasonable updates and parts that make sence to upgrade but Ducati never perform has expected, or they bring stuff to late or this stuff that they bring is not good enaught.. Ducati is Pro on design bikes but they defenatly dont have a clue of how to put all bike worcking im harmony and they even have the balls to say the bike have Soul..ahahah They build bikes like noobs, they just design parts that are beautiffull to wach but they never know if this part its really good enaught for the bike Performance..ahaha its just Stupid!! Is Not money problem it is more about inteligente people inside the Team... The only thingh that Ducat do well is Vtwin Bikes and know why?? Because the bike is more less the same all over the years since the 916 that the ingridents are allways the same and also because of Rules at Wsbk tha

Hemmy thats an impossible question to ask unless both riders rode same bike on same day at same track for about a week then this could be answered not goin t happen people !!! Oh n yeah Dov stuffed but nice pay cheque

LOL. Stoner won 3 of the last 4 races before he handed the bike over to Vale. It was still capable of looking competitive with an extraordinary talent like Stoner.

NB: don't confuse "invent some facts & rewrite some history Sam" with me.

Stoner asked to leave Honda ... ha, ha, ha.

Perhaps Crash needs an age limiter like Facebook - no one under 13.

LMAO! I love reading from all these keyboard warriors here thinking they know how to fix the Ducati and then having the audacity to blame Rossi or Stoner for its trouble. Stating that only Stoner can win on the duc is also a joke. Stoner complained about the issues with the duc for years. That is why he left duh..! They didn't fix it for him, and they didn't fix it for Rossi. Dovi and Hayden say they need a totally new bike. I believe them.

Guys say put Stoner back on the bike and they will start winning. I don't think it's that simple: example Nicky is born dirt traker, so this would imply that he has a similar riding style to Stoner, and he(Nicky) has not have a great deal of success on it. Second Stoner's style is not unique, there are a handful of riders with the same style as him, but not in motogp. And wether you like it or not this series is like any other sport series where most likely they'll promote from within, meaning the lower ranks ( moto2, moto3). But yes there's no denying his success on the bike, but also there's no denying his declying success over the years with this bike, up to the point that he decided to leave. So if you look at it another way it's not Casey's or Hayden's or even Rossi's fault of their current situation, but of the Ducati and no one else. You have to know that something is not working when 98% of the riders aren't able to ride your bike.
