MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough

Whenever Ducati are involved the rules and regulations are always slowly but surely tweaked and adjusted to suit them more than anyone else.... If you can't understand why Yamaha and Honda would be upset that after decades of development, investment and competition at the top of the pile, suddenly have to give up huge amounts of ground to a competitor who dug themselves into hole. And need to have huge amounts of benefits just to save face then you are a bigger fool than anyone could have expected... Dorna are manipulating the series to make it more entertaining, I just feel that any success Ducati get from it is hollow....

F1 » Rosberg wins Monaco GP after Hamilton pit blunder

I am the furthest thing from a Hamilton fan, but to be fair to the guy anyone would have been pissed off after that. Do people expect him to jump around and hug and kiss everyone after that...get a grip people. I do think that the mistake lies with both the team and him. He could have got all the information he needed over the radio and the team should have waited a bit longer to make the pit call. It was obvious it was going to be a long safety car period so why the big rush to bring him in, even on crappy tyres no one would have got past him?? Even if Nico was going to pit he still would have fallen behind vettel............A general f**k up all round really...............

MotoGP » Moto2 staying single engine post-2018

I don't have a problem with the fact that not every race will be a fairing bashing spectacle. I appreciate that on certain days some riders will have an edge and run away with a race. What I do have a problem with is that everyone is on the same bike, same engine, same suspension, same electronics and it is still boring, that's not supposed to happen in a one make series...What I think should be done is that the engine rule should allow other engine makes into the picture, ie. let teams use any 600/675cc 4/3 cylinder engine and tune it themselves or have a tuning company like yoshimura tune it, but forbid the factories from getting involved. This I think would allow different chassis manufacturers to tailor their chassis to the characteristics of specific engines. That would spice it up a lot more I think....

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough

Ducati road bikes are without any shadow of a doubt the most overrated, overpriced and overhyped motorcycles on the planet.... Using words like passion and soul is beyond cliche....I have ridden more than enough motorcycles in my lifetime to form an opinion.... A company that creates something like the Ducati scrambler?!?!?,Is seriously lacking a soul and is the very definition of a money making corporation.... Small company taking on the big boys my a$$... They have thrown just as much money at motogp as Honda and Yamaha have the last few years.... Stop kidding yourself...
