Ducati MotoGP racers Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden will be hoping that the braking characteristics of the Desmosedici can play into their hands during this weekend’s French Grand Prix.

Yamaha wont be out-braking any Honda anytime soon, they would have to completely redesign their bike with a new motor to get the same balance, its just not happening, and even if they did manage it, their bike would be butchering it in the corners (suspension to stiff/setup complications/different philosophy).

If Ducati are confident on the brakes that must mean they are getting enough heat in to the front tire, but if they are running the same chassis, they are probably lacking some where else.

I am still amazed at how much better pace Marc has than pretty much anyone else, save Dani last race, right now it's his year to lose. Helps when Repsol are in your back pocket, Dani could have easily won this year had Marc been on a satellite bike and not competed directly with the team. Dani's team are going to make the difference for him this year, gonna be tough keeping up with the setup I think, hopefully Dani gets the same parts, he certainly isnt faster down the straight than Marc.
