It looks Carlos Checa will be the BEST Ducatisti of the 2011 year. And very first best Ducatisti from half-factory team (or even just private team) in their history. It's even greater than Bayliss results. Hats off!

when all hopes with factory backed Ducati team rather tends to collapse Checa shines with private team. Without generalisation at that factor he indeed does something special compared to eg. Bayliss. He actualy saving Ducati honor now in very gentelman way.

Not to take anything away from Carlos, he is absolutely on fire... but come on, are you guys that naive to think that his team is running private/satellite bikes? He is getting full factory support and goodies, although the stuff comes in from the back door.

Yep your right he's the only Ducati positive this year, but.. What a positive. The oldest bike on the grid (development wise), a 38 year old rider thats never been a World Champion, a team that's offically not a Factory Team (We know it is though).. So hats off to him and the Team. Can't wait for next year, new bike, with the 1 plate on. And Bayliss back?
