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...

I wouldn't have believed you were capable of such hypocrisy if I hadn't just seen that with my own eyes noBstroKE. You are a funny funny guy.

 

Still waiting for this all encompassing post about "motorcycle roadracing". Just looks like more shite to me.......

Not arguing Buell ?

Well ok, but when you told me I was full of crap, then mis-quoted Laverty's fastest time and disputed he did it on a qualifier,  I took that as an argumentitive response.....

I did say no real conclusion could be drawn from the test (just my opinion) - who knows what they were running, may have been new spec tyres. No idea. I just said better to be faster than slower. Given that conditions were colder than they were at the race, should that give them optimism? No idea. Probably. They seem happy.

You assume I have a hidden agenda and want a Ducati resurgence as proof that they can do it without Rossi. I couldn't care less.

Nicky is not as optimistic as you.

Nicky Hayden, Ducati Team

“Things didn’t go as smoothly as we had hoped, but the test has been useful despite everything. On the first day, we struggled a little bit getting up to speed, but we improved somewhat yesterday. We were able to evaluate the new frame and swingarm, as well as a few new settings. Today, though, the weather hasn’t been kind to us. I did three exits in the wet, but it hasn’t been dry enough for slicks. It would have been nice to ride in the dry today, as we wanted to confirm a few things and improve our pace, but nonetheless, we got through some things and have a lot of information to work with. Thanks to the guys for all the hard work this year. Now we’ll look forward to February at Sepang.”

I put his first sentence down to the bad weather that wiped out the last day which stopped them building on what they'd done on day 2, rather than disappointment at the results from what they' tried.

The boss didn't seem too unhappy

but Nicky turned some good lap times despite the tyres being at their limit in the cool conditions.

Like I keep saying, no tangible conclusions from the first test, time will tell.

So your point bluto, is that you have no point. Why am I not surprised by that.

not helping

Nicky's the eternal optimist and it's not helping the Ducati effort. I've known people with similar attitudes, and all it does perpetuate problems because there's too much back-patting, too much leeway given. The bottom line is the chassis ineptitude has put their entire GP program at risk, to keep down playing it ain't helping Nicky.
