Congrats to Dovi, well done. Stoner had the attitude to "win it or bin it" I hope Dovi can be thinking "podium or bin it". He could be 2 years of development behind the Yamaha & Honda & he has some very good riders in front of him, but hey, Bayliss won on it with a solitary guest ride. I'm just saying the bike may not be quite up to it but Dovi has shown he is a racer & will have to make up the difference. I would hate to see Ducati do poorly this year & pull out just so Suzuki can fill their place in 2014

Check the warm up time sheets he could only manage 1 lap out of 8 in 56's wheras Rossi only had four laps out of ten that were not 56's!!!! I don't think he has a chance unless he is doing a Rossi and sandbagging it I doubt it though his pace has been poor all weekend surely he would have strung some fast laps together?

There are going to be a lot of very disappointed people on here after the race if they are basing Dovi's race finish on his qualifying time. Look at the time sheets people! He does not have the race pace even in qualifying his best time, which was good ,was his only lap that bettered any of Rossi's full laps. He is not going to be able to stop and put a new boot on during the race! If his times in practice are what he hopes for in the race he is goosed if he can go faster but did not, he does not know his tyre life when the the race pace WILL BE low 1m 56's with some mid and high 1m57's he has not set these times consistantly in practice. He will finish behind Bradl!

Don't say I did not tell you Ducatisti !
Bradl chucked it upthe road or he would have done! Ducati have not moved on yet! Lucky to be in front of Nicky hmmm there a work to be done in Balogna. I know paint it a different colour and then change the sauce on the pasta, hell change the type of past

It's unfortunately to have stoner quit his way from motogp. I think he is the best rider for ducati. Back to year of 2007, stoner took his world championship title with ducati. Not mention he was dominating almost all races in that season.
