Poll: Will the Panigale win a BSB race this year?

After a lacklustre start to the 2012 BSB season the worlds only factory built Panigales are struggling to be competitive. The best placing of the opening two rounds was a disappointing eleventh at Brands. Can they improve enough to win a race this season? Remember to post a comment below. The best comments will be featured in MCN!   pollcomment

Are you joking?

They might do if they had decent riders on them, but with the current pilots I don't think they would even make top 5.

Perhaps...

If Rutter was still on A Ducati they might have a chance, they need to attract the talent if they want to get anywhere...

Not unless they get some decent riders. Plus are the current guys able to develop the bike properly or are they wasting time?

World Super Stock 1000

would probably give a better indication of their potential at this point in time. Eddi La Marra currently lies second in the championship

Ducati's monocoque chassis was a failure in motogp and is proving to be a failure in WSBK.  It needs more development work, until then a conventional chassis is the way forward.

Ducati are half hoping it won't. I think they are keeping the Panigale out of World Superbike this year as once developed it would dominate and force a rule change. The fact that the Panigale is not being run by any leading BSB team, as you might expect , adds weight to the theory that staying under the radar in 2012 is a deliberate decision. Whilst the expectation, at Ducati and elsewhere, is that they won't win a BSB race in 2012, Scott Smart is an intelligent development rider and might just surpass expectation.

Muddy686 is 23 wins, 21 pole positions and 20 fastest laps really a failure in motogp?
