Thats very very true m8.. they all gone now!!.. Aim honest i was expecting that with Rossi input to enginres and with a bit more time they would fix the bike and Dovi would had enjoy better moments but has we wach is EVO after EVO and is exacly the same..lolo Thank GOD Rossi open is mind and think well about stay or leave, i guess he understand that the corrente team in Ducati can be all very nice people but they dont know what they are doing.. Its Embarressing to wach one TEam that pride so much is bikes and tecnices like if they where Brilliante and its a big mess..ahaha at least in Motogp we have to be honest, the Road bikes are beautiffull and good machines only because of the Vtwin..=).. But Damm say Hayden they have brillieant Enginerss?? Where?? maybe in kitchen making spaghetti.. after all this year with hte fking probleme i allready had send this guys to school to learn again... SO Dovi was racing one latest evo bike and is bullsht..eheheh

I dont agree with you, 1 because Ducati problems with tyres where related to the Carbon Chassi, when they raced the trallis frame in 2007 with Bridgstone Ducati had a massive Power advantage and also Michelin fail to give there riders one good tyre for the 800cc bikes that are diferente then 1000cc go wach the standing results and confirm that who ride with brigstone tyres have had there Best year racing..

2 in 2008 Ducati was still competitive Casey finish 2 on that year.. Yamaha was also competitive but only with Rossi that WON the Title, Lorenzo was riding michelin and was is 1 year maybe thats why he crash a lot but then in 2009 when Everybody was on Bridgstone tyres even Lorenzo was more faster and competitive finishing 2 to Rossi on that year.. But what had happen to Ducati?? First they bring a competly new chassi also they had lost there Power advantages and the result was big crashes and Casey also had is problems was the start of the Big Go down , then 2010 Casey fix

then 2010 Casey fix is problems about Lactose intolorance but was very clear that Ducati had found a lot of more problems with the Carbon Chassi.. Many people complain about the tyres because 95% of the grid use an aluminum chassi the other 5 % use Carban chassi bikes so there idea is the tyres are made for aluminum Chassi.. But then Ducati change for aluminun Chassi and they face the same problems.. I remember to all Ducati is worcking with Bridgstone since 2006 wille most of the others only start worcking in 2009 that was when the mono tyre rule enter.. So even today Honda and Yamaha also pass for a lot of problems with tyres has we wach by riders speacking but only Ducati have there riders speacking about a big diference on corner entry and other stuff to Honda and Yamaha.. So for me is very clear Ducati is a sht bike that could only be closer to others if they had one speacial and supirior tyre to other Teams and since in Motogp i whant to wach who have the best bike and not who

I dont think much will change for Nicky with the new spec bike.
His heart doesnt seem in it any more as far as this bike is concerned.He has tried his hardest over the years and has lasted longer than i thought he would.
I think he will be glad when he walks out of that garage for the last time.
