It looks like the works Ducati squad has gone from a coveted ride to almost an also-ran. Whether that's down to the bikes, the team or the riders, or a combination of all three, who knows. Even perhaps Tardozzi leaving?

How mighty Xerox has fallen. This team really needs a total reorganization of their squad. Haga is struggling to get comfortable on almost every circuit this year. If only Bayliss never retired! :rolleyes:

The guy may not be past it age wise, look at Max and Checa, but motivation is zero it seems. Look at the team mate for a bike performance indicator, he's doing not too bad, be it post Tardozzi problems or whatever. Great following, but has won nothing has he. Those that actually knew GP's when you added oil to the petrol will remeber a certain Eddie Lawson quietly went about winning 4 titles on 2 makes and the great talent that was Kevin Schwantz won .... exactly one. I know who I'd rather be ! Ship him home and wax lyrical about what he never won.

"This team really needs a total reorganization of their squad."

Seems that's the plan right now. Haga out, Marinelli out (as Team Manager) and possibly Fabrizio too.

Looks like Edwards is in, Dario Marchetti in as new team boss, and there's already competition for the second ride. Lots of names mentioned but Checa seems a strong candidate if Fab goes.

I bet Checa and Byrne are rubbing their hands together (and any other privateer Ducati, for that matter).

If Haga had been at the sharp end we wouldn't have seen the weight reductions this year.

Fabrizio retiring and Checa's DNF's are keeping the Ducati verage points per round low...

..expect to see a rule change for next year!

I hope he goes somewhere where he can feel comfontable again. Maybe Yamaha i'm pretty sure toseland is out next year or Bmw Xaus is not performing even honda Jonny Rea is the only one performing in that team. Worst comes to worst he would end up in a kawasaki :?
