Since being told he will be leaving Ducati at the end of the season, Nicky Hayden has become more and more critical of the desmosedici. Come Valencia i fully expect him to say the bike is crap.

Poor Nicky , they are finally letting him try the newest version only because it didnt work , and because he's on his way out Ducati wants to hear his opinion of it (looking for engineering input), and quite simply hes going to tell them that this version is not different than the previous ones and finally he might tell them where to stick this new chassis.

Vilas46 - Good points all well made but I am still of the opinion that in a prototype race class there should not be a control tyre. I have this view because I believe it wrong to have to build a bike around a tyre when it should be build the tyre for the bike.

ducaudi, for the love of all that is holy just put that engine on lease already. with multiple minds and talent wrapping chassis around your kit, SOMEBODY'S going to produce a winner. parallel processing this. trust me, 1 step back will yield 2 steps forward. I have spoken.

1. Before 2011, Satellite Ducati riders had a chances to finish on podiums and they did just to show Ducati Engineers knows how to make MotoGP bikes.

2. 2011 and forward, not even a single Ducati rider able to win any race just to show how much Rossi has damaged the bike development direction with his useless expensive (30 Millions Euro) inputs. Period.

3. Hayden test might give them nothing but data from the weakest frame. If useful data they after, why not let Hayden test on the bike that he used to be faster (the old design that has CF frame)?

4. That is how expensive it is to step back and restore to their best and then move forward from there. Isn't that very logical and practical?

Please Some1 give me a breack, How many times hayden prove to you that he new how to set the world on fire? one time when? 2006 why? i talck about this a lot of times.. Even with the boost of been World Champion Hayden couldn t shat up the mouths of people that say was lucky you know why? go wach 2007..

2 who is responsible for the corrente situacion is Ducati himself because since 2003 until 2006 people still accept that Ducati was still learning so every good result they had people will go crasy saying that Ducati is growing becoming better , then it come 2007 and 2008 was all GOOD finally Ducati enter on the big fight then For 2009 they decided to go CRASY and try new stuff like the carbon, maybe the right thingh to do should had be test a lot more before they end up with the legacy of traillis Frame.. If we gona talck about experience in Motogp what we can say the lossers will allways be Ducati because Honda and Yamaha and Suzuki and kawasaki have all been writting the His

the History of Motogp for Long Long time if you whant to know who is Ducati go search on WSBK PS all bet that you never heard about one carbon chassi here at sbk..

Aim not the person that will say that carbon will not worck,, 4sure someday we will have tecology to worck the carbon like he was never worcked.. I can tell you this i fear that the people that worck at Ducati are so noob that if Honda and Yamaha had build one Chassi in carbon following the spcifications of the corrente bikes maybe there chassi on Honda and Yamaha would worck Great.. Only on Ducati is SHT because they can build Trallis, Aluminum Carbon Or whatever because if they follow there corrente knowhow they will buil a SHT bike..lolo

Nick , Ducati dont want you in GP they want to suffer some more with the equally understeering Panigale, so they can still have a a sales ambassador in the US, they dont deserve you at all , I agree with (herewego) give them the 2 finger salute and beat them next year on either Aprillia , NGM Yamaha or wait if Suzuki calls.
