Is time for a new iteration of the Ducati race weighting fairness race formula?

Do we need to add more weight?

Perhaps duct tape 8 boxes of paperclips on the rear cowling and see what ranking the 1198 places Italy.

No wait, that's the home race so we'll add the paperclips in the US race.

If you think rules for Ducati are unfair, where were the other Dukes then? Smrz, Guintoli, Berger... all deep in the field. This is Checa's season. Just like Biaggi finally made it last year, Checa will lift the well deserved cup at the end of this season.

@superspeed , that's right. Max alone has that type and specification of bike. No one else in the race but he had such. Camier and Haga would leave him in their dust had they not been on Apillias from the 1870's. Yeah, if they had the same bike as Max, he would see. If only Aprillia would stop giving alone Biaggi the special bike, with nitrous oxide and rocket boosters and flux capacitors. Then we would see what a load of excrete he is for sure. No more lucky podiums, wins and championships for him. Yeah.

Elite, please dont spout drivel, Haga's bike is slowwwwwwwww compared to the factory Aprillia's he is like 14th fastest on the straightaway, he was getting overtaken by a Duke on the straight , unlike Biaggi who can just gas it away on corner exit thereby undoing any of the gains his rivals have made on him during the preceeding corners.

This technique doesnt work for Camier who weights 20 kg more !

besides Max did well, he just cant battle, fast as F*** but not a fighter we've seen it plenty of times before.
