Nice Q&A by Crash with Marinelli. Ducati especially on the WSB side appears to be moving in the right direction and I think that Dall'agna has done a great job in moving Ducati forward. I liked what he did at Aprilia so I'm not surprised he's impacting Ducati in a positive way.

I also agree with Marinelli about Troy as he's one of my all time favorite riders. The guy rode with passion and fire all the time it was sad to see him retire as I hoping he'd stick it out a couple more seasons.

Marinelli being pragmatic and talking total sense with no dramatics about what if really means to cut costs and provide good racing. And if EM is saying this with his red shirt on.. it means Ducati understand it too.. perhaps demonstrated by their support of Open Class and open software.

I hope Dorna have the same good sense and actually apply the same things to MotoGP as well to cut costs and remove the OTT electronics that is sterilising the racing and creating paper champions who dont have to race rivals with half a chance to get their trophy.

Quite a few Crash posters could do with reading EMs words carefully too... its not all about the lap time, its about the competition, and true competition where the rider achieves without a computer program doing most if the stuff the rider talent ought to be doing.

If cutting costs means more equality, more bikes on grids and a damn sight less electrickery then I'm all for it.
