On paper this will go down as a 4 cylinder walk over, but we all know Carlos was romping away with it.

So in 3 races time are we going to see Ducati get another weight reduction so that their 'Factory' team can start winning again?

I'm convinced the Ducati is better than it appears to be, I think Haga and Fabrizio just aren't bringing home the bacon...

..or more accurately, aren't matching peoples expectations.

Neither rider is especially 'slow' but we're so used to seeing Ducati at the sharp end people are looking for excuses that aren't necessary.

I can see some butt's getting kicked in the Althea garage tonight! One race failure due to a broken throttle sensor is acceptable, but 2??? Hard lines Carlos, those were your races for the taking today. Bummer...

ducati made a big mistake not backing carlos more after his win at p.i when u look how competitive he has been on that piece of junk. U only have to compare to good ol shakey to see how well he's been riding

I'm not a Checa fan by any means, but that was gutting for him. Very sporting by him and Biaggi, plus Max's team boss going in to the Althea garage after the first race to have a quick word with Carlos. Real sportsmanship and compassion isn't dead, it seems.

Two brilliant races by Checa, pity the bike let him down both times, I hope the race results are not taken in consideration when Ducati once again ask for further weight reductions because their bikes are still not winning :)
