How did Ducati not listen? The completely redesigned last years bike, which was winning when Stoner was riding it, at the bequest of Rossi and Burgess. They abandoned the engine as a stressed member. They built an aluminium swingarm when they complained about the carbon fiber one and then and built a new carbon fiber one when they complained about the aluminium one! They had at least 4 different engine designs. This year they redesigned many components after the first couple of pre season tests. So much so that the satellite Ducatis, which were the original 2012 design, were radically different than those ridden by Rossi and Hayden. I will take that 100 euro bet that he goes a second faster on the Yamaha as long as you pay 200 euro if any of the new Ducati riders go more than a second faster than Rossi's best of the weekend.
