Davide reminds me a bit of Iannone, these kind of 'card-missing' riders need one year on a factory (or semi factory) bike just to throw it away. Then we've seen in the past riders like this and the next year they come back dialed in. Vale was a bit like this in 2000 as was Casey in LCR. I still think he will come right and be a top rider for quite some time.

Giugliano was Checa's teammate on the Ducati in 2012. He had a decent bid/team last year as well.

Davide is obviously fast over a few laps but needs to learn to conserve his tires, and most of all, not crash.

googs, I'm quickly running out of hands and fingers on which to count the number of crashes. how many are we up to now...? wait, don't answer. that was rhetorical.

while your on holiday, you and the boys would do well to sit down and cogitate (if you haven't already) on my suggestion (back at the beginning of the season mind) to rehomologate the R chassis. right now this should be hitting you like a ton of bricks.

everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. (creepy Emperor voice)
