Why you say the 2010 Chassi Full Carbon, if the Chassi that Hayden was speacking about when he did a good lap time at one Test was the Chassi Hibrid, with Carbon and Aluminium..

What Hayden had speack incitialy was wrong was not the Full Carbon chassi like they had put here at Crash.Net.. Read here on Motogp news at crash
British MotoGP: Hayden clarifies carbon frame comments... For long time we know that the full carbon Chassi was difuclt to worck and setup properly, thats why Ducati one more time to not loos one battle on there ideas they end up wasting more time trying Hibrid versions like in 2011 with Caron and Aluminun parts..

The single tire manufacturer rule needs to go bye-bye ASAP. With the money being invested in electronics, seamless transmissions, pneumatic valve trains & etc., there's no excuse to continue on in this manner, siting expenditures as the primary motivation. Competition between tire manufacturers was once, and should be again, highly beneficial to both the racing teams, as well as us, the consumer. It's plain to see that the control B-Stones spelled the end for the Desmo. C'mon Dorna!!!

Ducati may be crap (at this time) but hey they are still a full factory outfit. They are still in the series when Suzuki and Kawasaki has pulled the plug. They still make up the grid without which there will be even lesser teams. Cut them some slack, it isnt easy going through what they are going through. I do hope someone comes along and bring them back to the front.

Agree Grendle,I have always hated the single tyre rule as it nearly always plays into the hands of one manufacturer whilst crippling others.
Teams should be allowed to use whatever tyre they think benefits them the best,rather than being forced to use tyres which could possibly scupper their potential for race success.
Bring back the other tyre manufacturers i say and lets have some more freedom to choose.

Hayden could do a lot worse than sign a 3 year deal with Suzuki and spend a year developing a strong bike and ride with them for 14 and 15 then continue till he goes out to pasture.
Ducati could do a lot worse than get a trellis back on the bike and privately develop the carbon idea till it works well. The Ally frame is a dead duck (no pun intended).
As for tyres, you could keep a single manufacturer rule but force them to make three compounds available on three carcasses at each event, surely not beyond the budget and remit of the mighty bridgestone?
However an open tyre war would do the series a lot of good if you ask me.

Aim saying this without even knowing how Hayden did!! But i guess that on the times Hayden did one podium can only be due to the crash of other guys that are supposed to have that spots.. Insted of pointing how Hayden cach one podium i guess you could be more honest and just compared the results Ducati could do with one Treliss frame vs the results they had with Carbon.. You can se that from Casey and from the numbers of crash he had!! Just get Real Ducati mistake was because they started inventing again.. Why they dont carry on with the Treliss Frame if they start with one in 2003 they devolped until 2006, they start winning in 2007 they where still big rivals in 2008 but then someone inside Ducati have the idea lets make somethingh like Ferrari lets use carbon and after this well Ducati going down and the Legacy still go.. Go read what Hayden speack about some1 even Hayden dont like the carbon he was speacking about the Hybrid chassi and even this chassi he just speack that he
