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...

Buell - help please

READ CAREFULLY PLEASE.....1.40.04 ON A RACE TYRE.

1' 40.04"...

What point are you making here - that he set a time on a race tyre faster than his actual fastest lap (...!!!) of 1' 40.185" which was on a Quali tyre? A tyre you flatly refuted he used in your previous post.

Sorry, I'm lost.

In colder conditions, Hayden knocks half a second off his 2012 Jerez qualifying time, half a second away from Lorenzo's pole time and you don't see it as encouraging?  Sorry,  I'm lost again

What would you see as an improvement - breaking the lap record?

Wrong end of stick.

Supermario...when I spoke of quitters, I meant Rossi! Hayden has no choice but to work with what he's got. He loves it too. Love Rossi, but he is so typically Italian...goes with who's winning.

Unfortunatly he couldn't get a Honda so he had to go back to Yamaha. Yamaha have some work to do because once the new Honda came out the phrase most used to describe Lorenzo was 'finished a distant second'.

dear me bulto

I thought it was obvious but just for you....

Laverty....1.40.04  on a superbike.

Hayden....1.40.090 on a GP bike.

Not very encouraging really is it but if you want to think it is good progress feel free.
I am sure Hayden will do his best but there is a hell of a way to go at this stage to go believe you me.

LORENZO

already said that yamaha is an easy bike. he moved from aprilian to yamaha and the next 3 years he grabbed WC and done it again last year. AND it's without what so call rossi's development skill.

 

so don't think rossi is great. he just ordinary rider. BUT HIS DAMN LUCK gave him no competitor, the best bike, tyres, chief engineering, etc. and lorenzo already proved it in 2010. anybody can beat rossi on the same bike.

 

and lorenzo already said that with rossi coming back, it'll make him more furious to win just like 2010. i already told ya all. lorenzo still choking his FAIR AND SQUARE won over rossi. LOL.

Stitched up..

Most of the top riders were faster in the race @ Jerez than in Qualifying.

Why?..conditions.

How often do we see SBK & GP circulating on the same track at the same time with identical conditions? This is why Wednesday was so illuminating and, the bottom line is that a Kawasaki ZX10 and Aprilia RSV4 lapped faster on race tyres than Ducati's Multi-miliion dollar GP13 prototype.

That's a sad indictment for Ducati and the the MSMA. BSB bikes, without all the whizz bang electronics, are only a few tenths behind the full blown Superbikes.

BSB and WSBK were brilliant last season so..why do we need the MSMA and their massive budgets dominating a snoozefest that is supposed to be the pinnacle of racing?

Why are they running a fuel economy trial and using five engines a year?

Because THEY can and OTHERS can't..which ensures they win. ALL the time.

I'm still waiting for this magical post noBstroKE

that tells us all we need to know about motorcycle roadracing. I'm seeing a lot of crying and a fantasy football score, but nothing of any substance. I bet thats another line you've heard a lot of in your life eh nobstroke, nothing of any substance?

Are you sad because casey gave in and went home?

I read between the lines of your post and realised that you could only possibly mean stoner, as he is the only one to run away with his tail between his legs. Good call, well done.

Blood..

.."t's the best guys on the best bikes" .. I think what you possibly should have said is, it's the best 4 guys in the world, on arguably the best 4 bikes in the world. Remember Laverty has just been signed to this farce..!
