Ducati are playing games & sandbagging with their bikes. Its clear theyve chosen Bayliss to win the championship this year, so they give him the true power of the 1098R when he needs it (like superpole & then race 1), but then keep the other bikes back so that they dont get weight or restrictor penalties.

For a bike thats supposed to lack top speed vs the 4''s, the Duc seemed to be rather quick compared to the other bikes, considering this is one of the fastest tracks & there is no chance to slipstream in Superpole.

I like Bayliss & he''s a great rider, but not that much better than the rest!

So those who disagree ... how do u explain them suddenly finding 1.5secs on their home track that they shud know pretty well? More than just luck methinks!

& to have the fastest bike too?? Just yesterday people were posting how the Duc shudnt get weight penalties coz what the gained out the corners they lost to the 4's on top speed ... well thats not what the timing sheet says!

LOL. Same old comments as when Stoner's fast. Quick, Dice! There's an Aussie on pole in super sport, too - better go and post a reason why he doesn't really deserve to be there!

Wake up Foo & read the posts ... lets see Bayliss & Haga swap bikes for a few races!

I hav no issues with Aussies winning or even Ducati's winning, but when it happens like this it just doesnt smell right. Ducati are playing the rules here no doubt. Their superstock bike has the same top speed ... so are we meant that the best the Ducati Corse engineers & F08 factory race bikes can do is the same as a privateer superstock bike? If thats the case Ducati are wasting money on an expensive factory race team!

Sounds just a bit too elaborate IMHO. And think about what an enormous project it would be, how many people would have to be involved in it and need to shut up about such a highly controversial thing, even assuming many of them (if not most) would not sympathize with this approach. I say NO WAY. I'll even say freakin' IMPOSSIBLE. Y'all need to just wake up.

Bayliss is a super rider - he has more Moto GP wins in 2007 than Nicky Hayden!

But yea, the bike is awesome too. It is odd how Max Biaggi (who was doing so well) now isn't really anywhere and Bayliss has gone off into the distance now the rules have been agreed not to penalise the Ducati's power advantage.

May be nothing, but who knows. :?

Ducati know Bayliss can and always will deliver the goods, so it makes sense to give him the best and let the satellite teams suck eggs.
