MotoGP » PIC: Max Biaggi rides Pramac Ducati


Anyone who want's to know a bit more about Ducati's problems should have a trawl through the archives for Fusuwara's interview with Crash after turning down Ducati's offer last year. Very good insights on both Yamahas and Ducatis designs. I still still their biggest problem was that they had a rider who was so good he could ride around just about anything and still be competitive.

Sorry VPower you still have it wrong. Fusuwara and his team took all the lessons they'd learned and put them into the 2004 bike before Rossi was on board. What Rossi and Burgess contributed was a systematic set up routine instead of the 'adjustable everything' the bike had when Biaggi was on it. Ironically their strength at Yamaha was the very thing they failed to do at Ducati, panicing and trying too much at once. Lyn Jarvis favouring Jorge? Oh dear, you've got it bad haven't you?

A little selective history there folks. When Biaggi first got the M1 it was a 940 with carbs, gradually climbing to 990 over it's first year. Everyone had problems with it, not just Max who managed a number of podiums and wins on it, more than anyone else. Fusuwara and his team knew there were big problems and the redesign was well under way before Rossi even signed.
