Following all the session I noticed that Marco had almost 6 or 7 laps doing 1.42 so I tend to think he will be one of the fastest riders around this track, nevertheless yet I have to say that Fabrizio surprised me definately.

Funny thing that in 2009 fabrizio won a race in Monza on Ducati and Smrz had one of the best top speeds (over 320 km/h). Looks like those Ducatis are slowing down while the others are speeding up.

Maybe the sanest way to level it up would be to vary the extra weight the Ducatis have to carry at each track?

Yeah I know the argument 'they've got 360,000 more ccs than any other motorcycle ever conceived of and enough torque to pull a minor planet out of orbit'.
But look at the evidence.
Unless it rains will they be 'Racing' against the BMs & RSV4s?

(I can neither confirm nor deny whether there may be a Ducati in my MCN FRR team).

Strangely, the top speed of the Aprilias at Monza seems going backwards this year compared to last year. Theoretically, if there is a continued engine development by Works Team, the top speed of the Aprilias could even topple that of BMWs, something like 336-337 km/h.
