"if they did they would LISTEN to the guys that ride the bike"
But they DID listen to Rossi.
After he was slow as a granny on a Sunday afternoon stroll at the Valencia 2010 test they went right in and design a whole new package FOR HIM - and he never raced it. He pushed it off on Hayden. And after he tested the GP12 1000cc bike he raven how much better it was and didn't have the front end problems and told Ducati to put the 800cc motor in it - and they did so the GP11.1 was born. And he still was slow. They listen to him and went out and got FTR to build them a beam frame - and he still was slow at the Valencia 2011 test. The listen to him and built ANOTHER bike which was "95%" new for this year - and he STILL is slow.
So were has listening to Rossi gotten them?? A wasted year, wasted originial GP12/GP11.1 design, less podiums as team, ZERO wins, and much lighter in the pocket. Has anyone thought that maybe Ducati are tired of listening to him or have lost faith in him?
