The Ducatis are like siamese twins, always together.

Is the factory actually working to develop this bike or what the F are they doing? I haven't seen any signs of improvement yet, the bike seems to getting worse if anything.

Credit to both Dovi and Hayden as they haven't crashed out of race so far.

AHAHA... Ducati is just a sad view, its incredible how they are so good on making bad Motogp bikes and Bad improvements..

Can t wait to wach what they are doing to defend there Top 10 places for 2014.. Now they still CRT that most of the times can t fight with Ducati, only Espargaro, next year the chanllage will be BIGGER.. WIll we wach Ducati finishing races in 13, 14 ,15 place? or even worst?

Yes, Joe, he would be. CrutchSLOW is going to get a rude awakening when he takes Hayden's seat. Then again, Nicky's been doing the DONKEY work for other riders his entire career, so maybe Cal starts winning on the bike after the factory realizes their bike is a big POS!

Remember, in 2005/2006 Hayden was every bit as fast or faster than Pedrobot. It was only after they changed it to an 800CC and screwed around with so many things that Hayden had to adapt.

Look, even Stoner had some rough years at Ducrappy but look what happened when he got on a Honda :)

You must not understand racing. You can get pole every single race, what matters is HOW you race. WINS are what matters. Poles don't mean crap!

And I feel I can call him CrutchSLOW when he throws a leg over the Ducati and says "WTF did I do?!" Just ask Valentino.

Stoner was the only guy who could ride that POS and even then he did not win consistently and had only 1 title on Ducrappy.

I love Ducatis, I mean the sound of the engine just makes you fall in love with them, but their GP efforts are lacking to say the least.

Crutchy is gonna have a hard time, I honestly wish the red beast would ring rolling stoner back.

For next season they will be in trouble with the Yamaha and Honda production racers for this bikes will defeat the Ducati factory and satelite efforts and thats not counting the Aprillia Factory bike along with the Suzuki wildcards

If you put Hayden on a factory based Honda, he'd be sitting somewhere in the top 5. I don't think he has enough to push Marquez, but I've seen him push and pass the two other Spaniards. Let's face it, once Ducati became NOT the sole user of electronic valves, that was their death sentence. I remember they used to walk away from conventional valve-based bikes (all the rest). Not anymore. Ducati is done in GP as far as I am concerned. Would rather see Suzuki and Kawasaki back in MotoGP.
