MotoGP » Ducati ‘didn’t run out of fuel’


When something becomes so developed as the motorcycle is, it's hard to improve it. Ducati would have needed at least 10 years to get the carbon frame competitive( that's assuming it was a good idea to start with) but they realized they couldn't so copied the Japanese guys, they then started to cry when it took them ages to even get that right...did they honestly think they could reinvent the motorcycle and be competitive straight away against H & Y.. So yes they are arrogant... Their attitude is even worse when they tell their riders to see a psychologist or try and hire another rider when their star is off sick. What are they going to say when they don't win this year????

rbr46.......you may be happy with it now as a ducati fan, but it is contrived no matter which way you look at it, if their advantages didn't count they wouldn't be there end of........They couldn't develop their bike due to arrogance, that's why Rossi walked on them, he could see that they were a mess. Now they need VIP treatment to compete........ It's fine though, Honda will still kick their butts and it will be even sweeter...

bonbozzbabaz.......Pedrosa has been with Repsol honda for 9 seasons and has had 3 teamates win the championship on the same bike...two of them in their first year with the bike..........that shows how fast the Honda is and how Pedrosa hasn't exploited its potential....... I think Rossi is a match for Marquez on the same bike, look how he struggled on the weekend, do you honestly think Marquez would have walked the race like he did on the Honda with the yamaha......I would love to see a stronger rider on the second Repsol, its totally wasted right now........ rb46......Ducati were struggling because they tried to re-invent the wheel, they had something that worked and worked well and decided to do away with it, their choice and their mistake....why should H & Y be penailised for that.....? Ducatis arrogance and attitude got them into that mess..... Suter were helping with the chassis design because when they decided to copy H & Y with the twin spar aluminium frame they had no knowledge

I never said you were a ducati fan, I was using 'you' in the third person....basic English, anyway.... Honda and Yamaha had the same restrictions Ducati had over the years but they still managed to beat them, Ducati were hopeless....FACT I do understand the rules, and I know ducati aren't breaking the rules, for the last time...my point is they should never have been allowed to have these concessions as a factory that never left the sport and have as much money and resources as they do... bonabananazz...I'm not taking away from Marquez's achievements, it's a team sport, but he wouldn't have run away with the race like he did last weekend on any other bike than the Honda.........
