MotoGP » Sepang II MotoGP test times - Thursday (Final)


These are some very interesting results indeed. An Open Class machine sitting sweetly on the second slot, really close to the leader and Dovizioso on a Ducati being several places above... Lorezno. Unimaginable things, one would say. As a side note, I don't buy the conspiracy theory that Dorna decide the champion for a minute. They alter things, yes, and steer the sport wherever they want but not to the extent that they decide which rider in particular is going to win. Alas...

MotoGP » Dall’Igna talks Ducati Factory/Open dilemma


I think that on technical terms, the Open Class for Ducati is a no-brainer. What makes it a real dilemma is something that I suspect Ducati are very sensitive about: To revert to the "secondary" category of the series, pertains to a considerable "loss of image". It can very well be seen as weakness, as admitting an inability to fight with the "strong guys" on the same terms. And for Ducati, a brand that sells image together with performance and has a certain mentality, it is difficult to swallow this and do the obvious thing. And not only that, but concerning the possible results it is also a difficult situation: If -by going Open- they fail to make progress everyone will say: "The poor bas***s, they didn't make it even by reverting to the Open Class". If they achieve any success however, it will be all "Yeah right, 4 litres more fuel, more engines and better tyres, what did you expect"? No credit to them nomatter what. I really wouldn't like to be in Dall'Igna's position right now
