They've changed allsorts on this bike over the last 2 years, when are people going going to wake up and realise the riders are not riding the bike the way it is supposed to be ridden?

Ducati problems was never a Ducati problem all along. Infact Suzuki too had the same problem since the single tire rule started which is the Bridgestone tires.

Ducati and Suzuki used to be better since 2007 when BS finally get the rubber right for them while Honda and Yamaha been taking care by the Michelin. When Pedrosa and Rossi loudly cry for using BS tyre too and single tire rules applied, things goes high wired for Ducati and Suzuki with different rubber grips upset their bikes balance.

Ducati and Suzuki fall into the same category where demanding high durability on the tire grip. The logical solution is to provide Ducati and Suzuki(if they return) with another tire manufacture that focus solely on their bike tire specification. Michelin would be the good bet. It will save millions of development cost by getting the right tire for their motor.

Dani and Jorge would struggle on the Ducati. I think Marquez could ride around the problems like Stoner . And like Casey, Marc would win a lot.... and crash a lot. I'd love to see Marquez try. IMO it would be spectacular to watch
