IMHO the only mistake Rossi and Burgess made is just their decision to play along with Ducati and keep the CF. It might be caused by two things. 1. They didn't have any previous experience with any CF (come to think of it, nobody has ever truly mastered CF so far), and mistakenly thought that it was just a setting problem rather than a more complex problem. And fine tuning the bike will be much easier and faster than building the bike from scratch. 2. Their over convidence or you may say arrogance that they can turn the Duke into a winning bike, regardless the frame it uses. But hey, with a track record like theirs, who can blame them? I just hope that Ducati will come to their senses and ditch the CF. Maybe build a frame with more or less similar geometry with Yamaha. I think Burgess can easily do that, after all, he's the one who set up Yamaha into the WC winning bike.
