Andrea Dovizioso reserves judgement on Ducati potential

Andrea Dovizioso says it is too early to understand the potential of Ducati’s Desmosedici MotoGP machine after he made his debut for the Bologna factory in Valencia last week. Cold and wet conditions meant Dovizioso completed less than 40 laps on a dry track, as he became the latest high profile rider to stake his reputation on making the struggling Desmosedici...

Dovi, he's always had a bike 'ready to race' , he didn't develop the Honda, he didn't develop the Yamaha, he won't develop the Ducati, he'll just bitch about it when he gets near his limit.

----------------------------------------------------------

He realised the braking system at Tech3 could be improved so took it upon himself to rectify the problem. Dovi will go about his work quietly and confidently as he always has. No histrionics, no particular thrills but certainly nothing to prove to anyone other than himself. Maybe a lack of  'development skills' are close to your heart?

As for Dovi, I just don't see it. He's a class act alright, but I see him as more of a journeyman than a big hitter. I'm also concerned about the front end of that bike. Dovi's biggest weapon is braking and corner entry. If Ducati don't solve the front end woes, Dovi could be on skid row.

Bigger lungs?

That'll be all that singing in the valleys no doubt. I don't think I've ever been punched by a man of the cloth, but life is about new experiences.

Not with those teeth Rev

I'd get skinned alive.

I have to agree with "stealth bomber". Good call. He certainly slips under the radar and draws little attention!

You're such a cheeky monkey Rev

You ever thought about chopping in the CB200 for something a little more environmentally friendly?

Wow, wanted better brakes, and all his development skills gave him that idea, what an icon. He only  wanted those to get an edge on Cal, now he'll have a job to see him, Cal will be so far in front.

REV, you miss spelt your 'Dovi - The Stealth Bomber of MotoGP' that should read BUMMER of MotoGP
