Nicky Hayden confident Ducati can cure understeer issue

Nicky Hayden remains confident Ducati can solve a persistent understeer issue that has dogged the Desmosedici MotoGP project in recent years. The understeer issue was a constant complaint of Valentino Rossi during his disastrous two-year stint with Ducati, which ended in him walking out to sign a new deal with Yamaha for 2013 and 2014. Hayden believes Ducati made some progress in...

Oh I quite agree Devil boy

Rossi's talent is undoubted by the majority of G.P fans. That talent lies somewhere below true Alien status. Some would say now that others have become better than Rossi that he's little more than a mid pack rider now. And all in the prime of his life. Oh dear.

Your GOAT will be doing what goats do best 2013. Feeding off scraps.

As you say Eddl

a simply unthinkable scenario. Nothing points to this being a possible reality.

Ducati

First of all I admire Hayden's optimism but then looking back at other years it is his usual outlook but one that more often or not has not turned to reality.
I certainly hope I am wrong and that Ducati can now move a further step forward nearer to their rivals because if they can't now I doubt they ever will.

As far as Rossi being back at Yamaha is concerned I do not see how anyone on here can know exactly what the result will be although it is highly unlikely he will be a mid pack rider.
Whether he will regularly beat Lorenzo Pedrosa or even Marquez is still questionable but you can almost guarantee he will be trying his best and enjoying his riding again.

A recent quote from Edwards................

I don't think Valentino cares.He just wants to get on a bike he can ride and have fun on.He's still fast as shit.

But Buelligan

Time and again you've told us how you know what is going to happen regarding Mr Rossi, and I must say your track record is rather poor.

cheers H5

Got to be optimistic after the the last two disastrous years.
Nostro is right that I like many others thought VR/JB could turn the Ducati round but it was not to be but not for the lack of trying.
I am sure you know but JB actually would have preferred Rossi to stay at Ducati because he wanted to finish the job they came to do and now with the help of Audi he believed they could have done that.
It is just a shame Rossi is running out of years otherwise I am sure that is what he would have preferred as well.

He wants to win again and I am sure he will!!!
