MotoGP » Dovizioso optimistic as test concludes


'We needed to understand better whether that bike is good or not, and it was positive, as it helps me with the final part of braking and the first part of corner entry' - Andrea Dovizioso

Codger,i wasnt refering to you and i putting the boot in,but people on this site in general.
You know what people on this site are like for putting someone down before thay have had a chance.
Look at the anti Crutchlow and Smith comments that we have seen here.
What i was trying to say is for people to give Dovi a chance to see what he can do this season with the Ducati,before passing judgement.

@ Red
Rossi, Dovi, J.Lo, Pedrosa, and MOST of the other riders are front end, 250cc, corner speed riders. Riding “like Stoner” goes against their strengths. Riding “like Stoner” doesn't improve the bike for the majority of riders. Riding “like Stoner” will only cause them to crash. Riding “like Stoner” doesn't improve the problems with the bike. Do you not understand this very simple premise?

@ Equal
They were evaluating different things much of the time. Your statement is misleading and largely non-factual.

@ sv650
Umm, Hayden stated that they didn't have anything new to test, and that they are, more or less, riding the bike they will use throughout the season. They aren't doing much developing at all.

@ Codger
Wanna take bets on Dovi's placement versus Rossi's? :) I'm always in for some good fun.

@ Realist.....sorry for my tardiness in responding.
I'll restate my position. I'll bet you a bowl of rice against a bowl of pasta that Dovi will score more points this year than Rossi did last year. He'll finish the season higher than Nicky too.

@ 99....sorry for being late in responding.
Fair enough. :)

@ Codger

So essentially we're betting that Dovi will end the season in at least 6th-7th with 139-163 points? I'll take that bet! He won't be 5th-7th. :) He'll be lucky to get 8th. I want teriyaki chicken with my rice too Codg!!!
