8well from watching all Dovi's interview's he constently says the ducati does realty good on fresh tires and he's not sure about who tge wul last for race pace, he also is using a different gas tank and nose faring, somting to do with weight distribution.

on one side they think they found something and it appears they have, now if they can make it last race distance and get all the duck's on the same page.

tomorrows race will be a true test of what Dovi has achieved, as we all hope he can be up there battleing with bautista Bradl n Cal

Sad for Hayden. He had two easy years after Stoner left with Rossi in the team, being very competitive with Rossi and being allowed to believe Rossi's junk about how bad the bike is, then along comes Dovi and does a half-Stoner on him first QP out of the box. Two years of his motoGp career blighted by Rossi's petulance and incapability, and then his new team mate puts the same bike ahead of Rossi who is now riding the best bike on the grid! With a decent run in the traffic, he might have been on the second row with Dovi, leaving Rossi down in the area of the grid he's made his own for the last couple of years.

"the champ" has been making excuses all weekend long. Granted - traffic could be it, but he has not been never been close to dovi. It seems to me another season running 8th on average... without a chance in hell at even being a contender..... and a good thing stoner ain't in the picture anymo, because it would be running closer to 10th out of... how many bikes??? Anyways, it will be an interesting season to hear excuses from Hayden and above all fans as to why the results are poor, and a podium is more often than not a mirage despite that "Numbers don't L1e"

Looks like Hayden prefers the old fairing(?).... Anyway, it certainly wasn't his day but these things happen you know, and he certainly is faster than he was yesterday. He's gonna get better as the season progresses.
