Not to go unnoticed, but Dani helped his teammate out, which gives something to the team.  Somewhat of a fluke and bad luck on Dovi's behalf though having Dani get past him to the finish line.

I cannot imagine what happened to the Ducati that made such a huge problem for him.  Was his primary bike bent beyond repair and his second bike didn't fit him?  He was doing so well from the get-go on Friday.   I'm sure I'm not alone on this.  I bet a lot of racing fans are scratching their heads.  It was just a week ago that the championship was tightening up and Dovi's form and confidence were soaring.

Dont worry. RINS will stay at Suzuki and Zarco will get to be Vinales teammate in 2019

And Marquez will request Pedrosa for another few seasons to come! 

The thing is that Marc is the only rider who is competitive at every single track. The man's an alien. He can make that bike work on a track which doesn't suit Honda. That's the difference. Phillip Island didn't suit the Ducati this time and unfortunately Dovi couldn't make it work either. The championshiop looks bleak for him now but it's not over yet.

I notice in this race all ducati are behind.  I think this is not about dovi, lorenzo, petruci, etc...but is about circuit.  Ducati is weak  on this circuit,  any suggest for this ?

No rain to help the Ducs, a wet year has been the reason Dovi has been there,lets face it, He is no MM.

May be due to choosing Medium Rear...and very less availabe slipstream to recovoer...and long corners...Ducati strugle with corner speeds... especially with balancing...my point of view...

Past indicates those problems...

Phillip Island is no Ducati track even though Stoner won here approximatley every time he competed but he could also ride the beast anytime anywhere. I did not find Dovi especially strong at all this weekend, the best pace from a Ducati was in 11:th after Q2 and it was Dovi.

Then is the track anticlockwise and that´s always in Marquez favor and sort of the favor of the Yamahas. Long sweeping turns with hard breaking and it turned out to be a little surprice in race pace though Yamaha FAC having big problems with the chassis all the way from Jerez. So I am happy

Anyway.. I think Dovi is going to set the win in SIC like last year but I do think that Marquez lead is impregnable, he is to consistant.

In 2016 dovi  is  top fourth here,  and if we look at the time is more than 9 second  behind  podium winner..

And now he is 13rd  with more than 30 second behind, is it mean the ducati have performance decline in this circuit ?  If  this is happen, they must work hard  to improve the bike, or they will always beat by another factory bike.  We see, all the  new factory have good improvement in this season...

Is it right ?
