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

I really think Ducati are just testing the ground with the Panigale, It has been tested by Bayliss for six months.  The only problem with the bike so far, is slow corner speeds, its just development at this stage.

Next year a full race team with better riders. I think.

Riders

Riders are not up to it if Bayliss or another stand out rider was on the bike it would be up there winning not saying that the guys are not talented but hand any one of them Hills R1 and they will still be also ran guys towards that back of the top 10 end of.

There is a monumental difference between aluminium and carbon fibre. Its just a monocoque would snap its head stock or be extremely heavy in moto gp if it was made from aluminium.

The only thing I have seen Scott Smart do is prattle on about "Uncle Barry" and as for Abdul Binladen I thought he had been shot and his body dumped in the Atlantic.

a bit harsh

I think you will find that Scott Smart has won bsb races before and has had other success ,I confess he may not be on top form or the best available at present ,but he is better than his results to date, the other bloke may be better suited to a camel for all I know?, but the bike is clearly not up to bsb winning standard at present,perhaps Rossi can give them some pointers ?mmmmh maybe not oh well

once they sort out any racing issues hopefully the likes of someone like Checa will get one and take it to a win

MotoGP spinoff

I think Ducati are going to have as much trouble getting this bike to turn nicely as they had with their MotoGP bikes. If I'm not mistaken, this bike has an engine as a stressed member, with the swingarm and steering head sections bolted onto a rigid block of steel. The MotoGP bikes suffered from lack of flex in the frame and the problem of engine vibrations feeding back into the suspension. This bike will have the same sorts of problems in all likelyhood. Go back to the garage Ducati, get some steel pipes and a MIG welder I say.
