Save the tyre and fuel bill guys. And show Haga the door before even his misguided die hard fans start to get a little fed up with the under performing/lack of motivation.

I know Nori has come in for some criticism this year (and quite rightly so), but as a big fan of his over the years and looking at the issues the GP team are having I am wondering if Ducati have lost the ability to build a big with front end feel. As both Hayden and Nori need a nailed front end but don't mind a loose rear and the Dukes look to have the opposite!

Of course Haga isn't doing well this year, but he is still ahead of Fabrizio in the standings. Apart from last year and 1 victory this year, Fabrizio had almost never good results on the Xerox Ducati.

Yeah, but Fabrizio's last year was stunning, I expected him to do the same this year, I thought he became really mature rider and stable title contender... But no way! :rolleyes:

Every rider needs a good front end- that's what gave Haslam his flying start this year. The front was planted and it gave him confidence.

Ducati aren't having a great year, made even worse by Carlos Checa riding the wheels off the privateer bike.
If the 2010 bike is worse than the 2009 bike then fear not- Ducati will nail it for next year.

If the 09/10 bikes are comparable, or indeed Carlos is riding a near factory 2010 bike as some suggest, then it points to the riders not delivering- although not delivering is very subjective, hardly as though Haga & Fabrizio are running at the back.
In fact if either were doing BSB they'd be leading by a mile. WSB is just that tough this year.

guess it dont help when and old retired aussie tests them and beats their times,not what i would call a confidence booster,more like an internal kick in the bo11ocks,oh well,no big budget next year ,? rossis wages and demands will suck that up,cant see ducati doin great in wsbk nxt year either,no matter who rides for them
