Hold on, so after Capirossi and Bayliss routinely ended the year with the same bike they started with, same for Gibenau, Stoner, Melandri, and Hayden (not to mention the satelite bikes), you think Rossi was going to go in there and get instant upgrades whenever his highness demanded? In which parallel universe? Ducati is a small manufacturer. At the time, Rossi went there because he gave Yamaha an ultimatum, and they chose Lorenzo. God knows why Ducati upper management paid the ludicrous amount of money to Rossi, but they could have fixed all the problems with the bike and then some. On top of that, Ducati provided more upgrades to Rossi in 18 mopnths than all the above riders received IN TOTAL since 2003. Get real. 80 seconds. That's the joke.
