Borciani maintains confidence in Byrne

Sterilgarda Ducati team manager Marco Borciani says his team has identified the problem that kept Shane Byrne rooted in the mid-field at Monza and are now targeting a significant improvement for the latest World Superbike round at Kyalami.

Byrne struggled for pace at the team's home event in Italy, leading him to claim that his morale had been 'shattered' by the continued problems he is facing with the team.

Nonetheless, Borciani is maintaining his focus for the immediate next round in South Africa, stating that they are better than their current performances indicate.

"I'm sure our performance at Monza doesn't reflect our potential. We'll race on a circuit that I know very well from the times I used to race in the WSBK and I'm confident "Shakey" can replicate the results of this season's early rounds.

“Moreover, I think we know now what was the cause of Byrne's performance at Monza. We'll obviously find out more during the first two practice sessions on Friday".

Look Dale, (posting as iron ortin - my that's hard to work out) once again you've sparked this all up. You decided off your own back to share your opinions on Byrne with us yet again, and Sick Cylinder pointed out some very relevant facts about Brands 03 soon after. I then thanked him and said I couldn't have put it better. He wasn't rude towards you, and I didn't even direct my post towards anyone specifically let alone you. My second post again was a statement of well reported facts - no insults towards Dale or anyone else. So just take a look at things with a more grown up head on and see if you can work out who has started hurling the insults and throwing the toys out of the pram first..
