seeing as testing is limited with your race riders, he isn't really doing the developing though is he, its there test riders doing all the work n then he just test the results at a race and see's if its better or not, so its going slow

So he really thinks they have improved that bike since he took over Was I just dreaming or did he really finish 8th 40 seconds behind he winner at the last race in Misano a race which the previous year Rossi got it to second place 4 seconds behind the winner, strange measure of improvement he uses!

Blah...I dont want to talk about this. ..I don't want to talk about that. ..blah...well what do you want to talk about? Come on dovi give the fans something! True that rossi's results on the ducati were underestimated. That bike didn't belong top ten.

Dovi DID give us something. Something big. Don't you READ?

The riders don't like the level of electronic intervention as it actually prevents them from riding in a normal way. Which is bad for the battle.

THAT IS A HUGE STATEMENT. Some of us on here have been calling for the tech to be curbed for his very reason while others say the tech is what makes MotoGP the pinnacle. NO - it's the best riders in the world that make a series the best.

Note also that Pedrosa got pinged to the Clinica Mobile as he relied on tech broken by contact instead of his own feeling.

I really like Dovi, ever since his rookie season, which he performed some stunning things, things he almost didn't repeat in any of his proceeding seasons. I would love to see him on the Suzuki when it is time. I would hate for someone with his potential to leave MotoGP or stay at Ducati. More importantly, F@ck Ducati.

From 4-6 positions on the Tech3 to fighitng over 8-10 on the Duc. It's ashame as you can see how bad the Duc is . Hayden is lucky he's leaving. Thought you'd see a little improvement of the bike through the year and it appears to be getting worse. Well Dovi can at least see his bank account balance getting better.
