You're making some sweeping statements as though they are fact which isn't necessarily the case
With abit of luck Audi will make Preziosi start to listen to the feedback Rossi and Burgess give him , instead of making them look like clowns
You can't say as fact Preziosi hasn't listened. How many different chassis? Rossi wanted the aluminium perimeter frame and got it. He was overjoyed with it in Sepang 1. What changed? What has he asked for that he hasn't got? We have no idea. You can't say a different engine as Burgess is on record as saying the majority of designers would go with a 90 degree V4.
Regardless of the hype from previous years Rossi and Burgess don't have the engineering solutions to problems. Burgess isn't a qualified engineer either, he is a race mechanic and there is a world of difference. He doesn't design frames or engines. Rossi says what the bike is or isn't doing and if him and JB can't alter it with set up, engineers go away and discuss.
why keep building 90% v4s if it effects the chasis so badly its making the front end jackknife? Preziosi stubborness thats why.
You, I, nor anyone else knows the V4 does this for a fact. See first point about Burgess' comments on the V4. What they are complaining about now is the aggressive power delivery, not the engine configuration. Rossi or any other rider wouldn't have a clue what engine was under them if no-one told them. Remember also, Honda did fine with a V5.
Stoner fans just cant bring themselves to admit the three wins at the end of 010 didnt have a hint of desperation about them. Nothing to lose so throw everything into it,. Very brave and fair play to Casey.
Again, supposition, you can't say that with any conviction. The only person who would know is the man himself. You only have to watch him ride to see he throws eveything into it every time.
Honda threw the kitchen sink at the last 800 to turn it into a winner
You don't know what Honda did, or whether their effort was bigger or smaller than in previous years. Honda race to win and they would have done everything they could every year to win. Dovi and Simoncelli were never going to win the championship, Pedrosa possibly if remaining injury free but he didn't. Once again, Yamaha would probably have taken the 2010 title with Lorenzo if Stoner hadn't been on the Honda as Stoner on the Ducati would have taken points from the Honda riders. Lorenzo missed as many races as Pedrosa and was way ahead. Dovi way behind and Simo, who crashed out of 50% of his races, nowhere.
It's difficult to judge just how good or bad the Ducati actually is. Hayden's best laps at Qatar, were on average about 7 to 8/10 off the fastest in every session including qualifying and the race. Rossi's were about 1.5 seconds off. Between them was Barbera on the reject bike and Abraham would have been too most likely if his brake hadn't gone. Based on history, you would have expected Rossi to be a few tenths faster than Hayden, so why wasn't he? Instead of being slower than the customer teams on the old bike. The fact he was using Hayden's set up is telling.
Hayden's times suggest that there is potential in the bike whereas Rossi is saying that nothing has changed from last year. Which suggests the CF frame wasn't to blame. Burgess says the V4 is fine in terms of configuration, so what's the problem?
