lolz, Ducati had one good season on Bridgestone, umm, okay, Despite Melandri's issues the 2008 bike still holds circuit/lap records w. Stoner's name attached.
In 2006 and 2005 the Ducati was at the very least competitive and in 2006 Capirossi might have been able to take the championship had he not been injured.
2009 marked Ducati's downfall, the year Yamaha dominated due to Bridgestone's new relationship with GPs. Ducati have never been as strong as they were pre 2009, and neither were Suzuki or Kawasaki, except for Melandri on the Hayate, which was a mighty effort.
The control tire makes it very difficult for everyone but the manufacturer that figures out the tires, (thank Bridgestone for their development/engineering to particular specifications). The control tire limits competition, it is not fair and its more about managing expectations than helping EVERYONE out, its a lie, just like the ones governments sell to people to get them to sell out.
Go Nicky !
