RawDawg....if it comes from the riders own mouth, I believe what I read. It's in black and white....sorry if Casey makes your "pluck from thin air theories" wrong. You did read that Casey tested the CF and wanted it immediately. Perhaps funding was not there at the time to get it to him. Who knows? .... but we might have seen 4 wins that year instead of 6 wins.
That Ducati choose to listen to Casey their lead rider with the most wins at that time to develop the bike towards the direction he pointed them in. The sent Melandri to a shrink for his input.
In hindsight Marco was on to something and Casey was not.
