Ducati's problems are mechanical and exist in between the bike and the tires. Until they can manage the tires the riders will have no chance at matching the Honda and Yamaha. Its not handling its mechanical, and its caused by virtue of how Bridgestone spec their tires. Solution, clone the M1, Honda seem to only took 1/2 a season to claw back the advantage. Ducati is gonna need some riders that will push those tires, so they can really understand where the bike is deficient. Allegedly Stoner ran tire temp readouts on his dash, probably would be a good idea for Ducati to start paying attention to their tire temps, better telemetry and analysis so they can make the right modifications. Would be nice to see Dorna either hand over extra tires for testing or allow Ducati to contract out for tires, cause that would be cheaper in the end run im thinking.
