Jerry Burgess: Aragon better test of Ducati progress

Ducati will be able to get a clearer understanding of whether recent chassis and swingarm improvements to its factory Desmosedici machine are a big step forward after this weekend’s Motorland Aragon MotoGP clash. Rossi scored his best ever dry race result with second at Misano earlier this month on a new chassis and swingarm package that delivered improved rear stability on...

80 seconds could be way shorter if ducati would listen to the riders. but they never ever did, ducati way or the highway! thats for to many years now. Stoner said they dont listen, rossi said they dont listen, and now dovi said i hope they will listen. updates always seems so far away at ducati, they brought a faulty ecu. an swing arm and a chassis in 2 year. only at the very very end, and by listening close to FURUSAWA they were able to proceed, and brings stuff that might help. if i were rossi wouldn't do anything anymore for Ducati, let them swallow all the bad thing in those 2 years without listening etc.

And without knowledge of building a superbike with a frame now they build a frameless panigale.! who nobuddy wants to ride in wsbk. but they have to!

The regular numpties..

..have been rolling around giggling and doing some decent dying fly impersonations, here at the cathederal of free speaking forums, for nearly 2 years..Rossi is washed up and can't ride or develop a bike. He was lucky to win all those titles.

Well, Misano saw most of them head for the hills. It was the best ride of Val's tenure..inch perfect lines scribing black arcs onto the asphalt. No mistakes, the tyres lasted full distance and his lap times were metronomically consistent to the flag. A blast from the past. Confirmation that the old skills are still intact.

Sure..it was easier without Stoner and Pedrosa. Yes..the weather and prior testing gave Ducati an edge. But there does seem room for optimism with the new parts.

The gap to the front will be an acid test and guide to all those hoping to see an improvement..not least the newly signed riders for 2013.

Deja vous flashbacks to 2010 for these last six races anyone?

Well...

... it does seem like JB is limiting his comments to stating the obvious (Lorenzo? Title favourite?... never!)... while lots of folk were jumping up & down saying that Ducati had fixed the bike after the last race both he & Rossi seem to have a more realistic outlook... cool.

Rossi - "Anyway, we’ll see. It will be a chance to understand if we’ve really improved"

Almost 2 secs off the pace in QP at a 1m20s LS & 1m38s Indy followed by a 0.9 at a 1m55s Brno shows what you could call a marked improvement already... I'd take around 0.8 off the pace at a 1m48s Aragon as an indicator that they're continuing in the right direction though he's been that close in qualifying a couple of times this season already. A slip back to 1.5 or 2 is just that... under 0.5?... it's fixed!... put a decent rider on it & win some races!

:biggrin:

Of course anything can happen in a race as we saw last round.

For the sake of the class let’s just hope the Ducati is now closer to being an easier bike that more racers can set up and ride competitively.
There has been a lot of work done trying to get this machine to be a lot more adjustable in a lot more ways for the purpose of adapting the bike to suit the different tracks. This weekend will give a good indication if there has been real decent progress at closing the gap to Honda and Yamaha. Fingers crossed for a good race.

It's about 63.1 million seconds

To be fair though, JB didn't have two years looking into it, he had to finish off his 2010 year at Yamaha first. That comment did come back and bite them on the arse that's for sure. They obviously had no idea how screwed things were at Ducati.

Hi Wosi.   I can't see Rossi repeating that 2nd place (no-one else had dry set-up time etc)

but I would love to be proved wrong.  Here's hoping.
