MotoGP riders are praised or damned too often, I think. Their pace compared to their teammates is valid, but to say that Casey could today win on the Ducati or that Rossi ruined the Ducati is nonsense. Casey is an awesome rider who managed to get the most out of the bike a few years back, but he would not have won last year, just as Rossi, Hayden and others could not either. And Ducati won't win this year. And bringing in another rider won't help. If Casey could be cloned it still would not matter. The bike is a dog, pure and simple. The team will improve only with solid organization and investment from Audi, which is beginning only now. Perhaps in a year's time they might contend for a win, or sooner if it rains, but this year is going to be rough.
