Nicky Hayden seeks solution to understeer issue

Ducati must try and find a cure for the chronic understeer issue that has plagued its factory Desmosedici to have any hope of challenging Yamaha and Honda’s domination of the MotoGP world championship. Speaking during a press briefing at Ducati’s team launch at the spectacular Madonna di Campiglio ski resort in Italy this morning, American Hayden said a key development focus...

Hayden was out of Corse

Until Uncle Carmelo wangled Rossi the factory M1 ride.

Hayden is really little more than the definition of a nr.2 rider. There either because he brings money, or is useful in a marketing role. He misses that 'eenth degree and riding and set-up that enables the truly quick boys to strut their stuff.

Still good enough for Rossi to have to emulate Hayden's settings though despite being completely different body types and having completely different riding styles. Shows just how desperate Rossi was. And before you start Wosi Hayden said Stoner 'moved towards' his setting. Nothing like Rossi adopting Haydens completely.

No wonder Rossi left, after being at Yamaha & getting what done what was needed to be done to get the bike competitive , it must have been a. Shock for Rossi at Ducati , I think he knew from the 1st test at Valencia in 2010, it wasn't going to work, 2 years on a crap bike must've felt like an eternity, so on 24 th jan we,ll find out how quickly Rossi can adapt back to the yamaha

Honda and yamaha would have solved the problem when it reared it's ugly head back in 2007, but the hp and tyres and Caseys riding helped mask the problem that season. Since then they've never got to grips with it which, for a company that builds racing motorcycles for a living is nothing short of astonishing or totally incompetent depending on your view point. Feel for Nicky he's gonna have to repeat the same old shit he's been repeating for the last few years all over again but he should be able to get Ben up to speed quickly.... Is that worth the money when you already have a load?? probably, it might be a turd compared to a yam or honda but it;s still miles faster than anything we're ever likely to get to ride.. Dovi and Iannone will have it worse they speak the lingo..
