A lot of work to do? What happened to Casey saying it was a good bike and only .3 from the Works bike? Please don't say that he was just toeing the party line, I had him down as being better than that.

Well at least he will be allowed to help develop the bikes which was more than he would have been allowed at Ducati. It is after all a production racer not a prototype so the electronics will be set by the factory and whether these can be upgraded or just tweeked remains to be seen but I suspect the latter.

Stoner doesn't rely on the level of electronic interference that ANY other rider does. Has no one been watching for the last 7 years? HRC have said the level of electronics used were inversely proportional to the track conditions.
Not hard to believe when you look at his ducati performance compared to ...
well anyone really!

Nicky doesn't need the ego stroke to say he is second fastest or w/e. He is diligent in his approach and doesn't need to bin his new toy, which he is sharing, at some meaningless post season test. Plain and simple.

I'd like to see them get the electronics sorted as unfortunately that is a big part of racing these days. Hopefully if they do then Hayden can be up with the satellite bikes giving them a run for thier money.

Ps: Come on Codge, your starting to get into LC Tanner territory with your anti-Casey sentiment...

1) Hayden and Aoyama are sharing a bike
2) It's a brand new bike to Hayden
3) It's a brand new bike to Aspar
4) It's a brand new electronics package
5) They don't want to bin the bike on a limited test (what other bike would Aspar test if Hayden binned it on Tues. morning or if Aoyama binned it Monday?)
6) Hayden doesn't want to get hurt before going into '14
7) There's no data on the bike.

I think when Stoner tested it, it was likely with Honda's ECU, the Spec ECU's weren't given out until this Valencia test. So it's safe to say that with HRC ECU, the bike could lap closer to the factory bikes.

Both riders confirming that Electronics is where the improvements lies
