@ Marc. Of course anyone with a little common sense won't expect Iannone to set the premier stage alight next year but Ducati need new brooms to sweep away useless data gleaned over the past 29 races of misery.
@Vilas. I take your point about Italian style riding,but Ducati cannot merely pander to rider whims.
The bike is at least 95% a match for HRC and Yam on any given Sunday and has been since 2003.Japanese giants Suzuki and Kawasaki never could stay the pace with them and bailed out of the game.
Capirossi in his heyday was a great example of how to race with the L-4. He always exploited the huge corner exit advantage and mid corner speed of the bike with less emphasis on corner entry.
Rossi and Burgess tried to turn it into an M1 hybrid and failed.Sure they wanted to win with it,but they demanded such radical changes,the diminutive outfit could never hope to deliver on.
Early days and lets see. Ain't Iannone's race number #29 ? Good on 'em all at Corse.
