inducing oversteer will make both ends go wide instead of 1. Oversteer only works if the front is stable enough for the rear to pivot around it. Sorry Prof but if oversteer was the problem they'd be quicker on worn rears yes?!

Ah the internet........the only way we could have found this kind of lame-ass drivel would have been to wander into a bar full of drunken fools watching a telecast of the IoM or the Daytona 200 in the 1980's or prior. Pretty obvious @ Delit Ronio was baiting everybody. Actually kind of funny.

Will Ducati catch up? Doubt it. Not this year and probably not next. Yamaha and Honda would have to stop developing their bikes. It's quite amazing how they keep squeezing more performance from these things.

Last person I can remember winning the championship on a turd of a bike that had no business winning was Eddie Lawson in '89.

When Rossi on Ducati in Sepang test 2012, he's 1,2sec behind Stoner at the top, the same as now. So what's the difference? Improvement? We don't know until the 1st race in Qatar.

When Stoner won his Motogp championship on The Duc it was by far the best bike out there, leaving the Japs to play catch up. When they got their act together the Duc was going backwards in development and Stoner had to ride even harder and never looked like winning a further championship on that bike hence the jump to Honda. If anyone thinks Stoner is the best ever have a look at some old races when he was trying to ride 2 strokes he fell off more times than he crossed the finish line. Only winning 2 championship in his 12 year career both on the best bikes out at the time
You cannot even start to compare Stoner to the likes of Surtees, Ago, Reed, Sheene, KR snr, Rossi, Doohan, Gardner, Lawson, and not forgetting Freddie Spencer who won 250 and 500 Championships in the same year. All hard riding men and proper racers

The Duc will never ever win another championship while there are jap bikes on the grid unless they get an extra 200cc like in WSBK

@ The Truth

Yes, FFS, WE SAW IT, WE ALL SAW IT! Now, PLEASE can you people PLEASE STOP FLOGGING THAT SAME DEAD HORSE!!!!

Did you see all the other times Casey got the better of Rossi? Or that time Rossi's ambition outweighed his talent?!

ON TOPIC: I like how Dovi is approaching this challenge, and it already appears to be bearing fruit! GOOD LUCK DOVI!!!!
