Once again it looks like we can have a great race, hopefully weather and aggressive riders don't prevent it from finally happening.

With the many chassis iterations for Ducati this year, softening the frame to add flex you have to wonder if the road they are going down is the right one. I remember the great Bayless/Edwards WSBK battle and Colin dominated the 2nd half of the season. He attributed the improvement to removing one of the engine bolts from the frame to give the bike more flex. The setup overcame a stiff chassis and an engineering flaw.

Development is by engineers
Setup is riders and teams

When is Rossi and JB going to work on setting up the Ducati to get the most from the package? Having previous data, fresh motors, home crowd this should be there best chance and Hayden is still faster on the cast off chassis.
