I'm surprised Nicky's not up there better, dirty sandy track should fit his sliding style, as well all reports say how the ducati does better on cold track cuz it keeps the tire cooler and therfore gets better traction, supposedly why they do so well in the rain... Dovi seemed to find somthing, lets hope the rest do, cuz 4 ducs battling round fith would be very exciting indeed!!!

Rossi and JB can't make this bike win a race, bad riding and workmanship from them.

Dovi just need a single on this bike in this season. A single win that give a hard slap on the back of Rossi head.

Top 3 FP1 2012:

Casey Stoner 1.56.474
Jorge Lorenzo 1.56.648
Nicky Hayden 1.56.924

I would hold off popping the champagne bottles already. The more grip and the faster the track gets, the further away the Ducati's end up being from the front. They are doing no better last year.

@facts that's what they want you to think. Rossi just got tired of dominating everyone on the Yamaha and knew he could destroy everyone on the Ducati but it was in such bad shape for everyone but him when he got it from stoner that he had to make it look like he too was struggling on it. That's when he and JB fixed it in 80 seconds and teamed up with Hayden barbera and de puniet to keep it on the down low so that when he goes back to Yamaha it will magically become competitive again. These are the real facts

Man, I hope Nicky gets his head straight & finds another avenue to show his skills. I, like many others, admire his team spirit & determination, but there's a time when you've flogged a dead horse for long enough. With the new rules coming in with the Honda Production Racer for sale and leased M1 engines in custom frames, I think it'd be the perfect time to try one of 'em out, or go to SBK. Shoot, imagine if he & Ben join forces for an all American Suzuki comeback effort? I know...I'm dreaming.
