MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday 5pm


CMIIW, but I think, Ducati is the only manufacturer with a major chassis redesign. I wouldn't be so surprised if they are not familiar with how it behaves yet, especially with the tight test rules. So, while other teams are fine tuning their bikes, Ducati is still testing the frame. They might have bigger changes in chassis design/geometry for the next test compared to other teams, who have years of experience on twinspar. But IMHO, this is a huge step forward in the setup department, with the more predictable responses and feedback to the small setup changes, compared to the inconsistent feedback given by the stressed member chassis bike. Regarding engine. We would not be able to compare engines when the chassis is not working optimally. Hope the new test rules would give enough time for Ducati to find the magic formula they've been looking for, and they can become competitive again. (I wouldn't be so surprised if people say the new rules will benefit Rossi or Ducati the most. But

MotoGP » Wayne Gardner plays down safety concerns


I don't understand why people slag Gardner off. I never like the guy either, but I have to agree with him. Island of Man TT is, by any modern safety standards, definitely not safe. There's simply not enough space to make for adequate run offs. You crash and you hit a wall fence. Modern motorsports and its safety precautions have become an art in themselves. It's one thing to get your adrenaline pumping, and it's completely another thing to get suicidal.

MotoGP » Lorenzo has surgery, will miss Malaysia


With all due respect, Jorge's injury is not as severe as some of the MotoGP riders had sustained. Rainey's, Schwantz's and Doohan's are career ending injuries. I guess he will recover in due time and won't lose any of his ability to ride the 1000 beast. At least, that's what I hope. Otherwise, I might just skip 2012 WC, even if Rossi and his Ducati is up to speed by then.

MotoGP » Rossi: Short-term 'inconclusive', long-term 'hope'


Hire Stoner, fire Rossi?! Ducati management should listen to that (so they can laugh their @$$ off). 1. Fact says, Stoner is the only rider who could ride the CF Ducati. 2. Fact says, his performance was declining every year. Combine those two facts and you get an ever declining team (Part of it because Ducati doesn't listen to Stoner). Maybe it's Rossi-Burgess they need, people with proven track record that they cannot say no to. That's the only way Ducati can get competitive again, even if it takes this season away.
