In 2007 Ducati had an advantage in many area's:
1. The Bridgestone tires were made especially to suit the bike/rider i.e. Ducati & Stoner.
2. Ducati's superior speed down the straight.
3. Casey Stoner's all balls out riding style.
4. The long development of Loris Capirossi who's experience was pivitol in that bike.
What happened, in my opinion:
1. 2008, Rossi got Bridgestones and Yamaha and Honda caught up.
2. 1 make tyre rule, everyone got the same tires so there were no special tires made to suit any bike or rider.
3. Casey just rode around problems and didn't have the exerience to develop a bike.
4. The Carbon Fibre chassis, maybe a bit too ambitious at this time in MotoGP so they dropped behind the Yamaha & Honda.
5. Ducati's struggle to bring updates/ new parts early & quick enough.
