well if they don't see vast improvements I think its time to ditch Gobmeier's concept of evolution and go with revolution because same ole same ole just ain't cutting it!!!

they need to shake things up inside corporate and fire some people and bring in a whole new (Audi) team no offense but Italians are notorious for arguing going back n forth and getting nothing done fast ie wasting time they need results no not two years from now...

hope they do better testing at Mugello.

Audi? Audi knows nothing about bikes, nor "ze germans" are some sort of god given solution to anything. Look at BMW, still to have a championship in WSBK, despite being the richest team there.

They should just bring back the CF frame, together with the new improvements in the engine and gearbox, and run back to back tests with the current bikes.

I love when pepole mouh off about shiet they know nothing about...

Wolfgang Duerheimer was to replace out going ceo Gabriele Del Torchio but they went with the current GM Claudio Domenicali, staying with the same ole same ole never change people... not the biggest need is to change the way things are done inside! Wolfgang Duerheimer who heads Audi's research and development and lead the VW Group's motorsports activities at Audi, he said to deal closely with motorcycle maker Ducati, a fitting job, as he earned his stripes at BMW's motorcycle division before he became head of Porsche's research and development. maybe you should look him up... unfortunately he decided not to take the ducati job where he could have brought in effectiveness to the company and fire all the people who are more involved in polities then getting things done! so again Ducati is stuck right where they are, going nowhere soon!

Evo bike! still 7th and 8th! revolution is right but not the C.F frame! you only have to look at carlos Checa in SBK, what did the report say on here, couldn't find the apex, seems to be a pattern forming!. I still say good luck Ducati though.

Why still bring CF frame into discussion??it's a bad idea..Masao Furusawa said it..or do you think you smarter than him??
Yes..they always can knock on Stoner's door..but he's not home..he' fishing..
But Audi have the power of money..they can hire anyone out there..
