I don't care if Duacti used Rossi or not for promoting the Panigale. Rossi was never the right man for the Duacti brand. I will always remember the likes of Bayliss, Stoner, Foggy etc for being Duacti heroes.
But regarding the Panigale, it seems like its handling (based on SSTK ) is just fine. But the Panigale just like the 1098R struggles with lack of power. I can't see Duacti fixing that issue in WSBK as the Panigale will run with restrictors. Ducati will struggle next year unless they pull out something spacial... maybe Stoner on the Panigale.
