Andrea Dovizioso: Stoner retirement a big loss to MotoGP

New factory Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso believes Casey Stoner’s absence from the track in 2013 will be a big loss to the MotoGP world championship.

bitter oranges..


I know it hurts that casey has jacked but don't you think making your own press conference up to have a pop at Rossi is a bit SAD?


Gobmeier..this morning.

"this bike will be the basis. there is still a lot of potential within it to reach its optimum"

"we can still work with this frame in geometry, stiffness etc. working on engine to improve torque delivery and rideability"

Gobmeier also said development of current Ducati has not been completed and more needs to be done to explore its potential




More worryingly..

"we are still analysing the technical and organisational side of Ducati. development will draw from existing material"

"there is a long term commitment from Ducati and Audi. this year will be a strong development year with some results"

Also..the engine will remain 90 degree and Prezel is being consulted as Gobshiester gets himself up to speed..?

Oh dear.

need for speed wosi.

engineers get the best feed back from a bike that gets pushed to its limit rather than a bike just clocking mileage. both ducati and honda have spoken of the excitement they got everytime casey went out and did 3 laps , in those 3 laps they collected a mountain of data showing the bikes capabilities under duress. honda had no idea there bike could go so fast until casey hopped on it and did 3 laps in valencia 2010.
