Article says, "Under Preziosi's design leadership, the Desmosedici took 31 MotoGP wins and one world title." It also says 23 of the 31 wins were achieved by Stoner. The Article tries to heap compliment on Preziosi and makes no mention of the riders that were nearly ruined by Preziosi or that the designs he approved and would not jettison are fatally flawed.

End of the day Preziosi built a bike that 3 riders won motogp races on and got a world title. Thats something none of the four stroke designers at suzuki, kawasaki or aprilia can say.

And he probably had less than half the resources of honda and yamaha.

Only one thing. Half the resources? It was, and still is, more like 1/10 of the resources of big corps from Japan.

Stoner made his designs look half decent....he won't go down as a great that's for sure.......
As for the comment about the resources......they had more than enough resources to change that bike, they just don't have the expertise or the talent of honda and yamaha end of. Any team spending 15million a year on their riders wages is not a team struggling for money. If you listen to what burgess says he will tell you of the arrogance and lack of knowledge of the italian 'engineers'.........

It is unfortunate he was not able to ride that motogp creation which killed the gp careers of so many riders. He caught a lucky break with stoner, and refused to change anything. Most disturbing was the number of crashes he was willing to have his riders endure rather than fully sort the bike out. Stoner was lucky to have won a championship, and not end up a cripple.

A sad loss from MotoGP of a true visionary. The carbon desmo should have been given time to evolve, Casey's results in the last half of 2010 showed that the bike had been improving hugely. I hope the Panigale goes on to dominate WSB as it's a true legacy of Fillipo's design and you never know, the japanese may even end up copying. Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery
