No quick fix to help make Ducati competitive

The journey to return Ducati to winning ways in MotoGP will be a long one, with new race boss Bernhard Gobmeier admitting no miracle cure exists to help the Bologna factory end its winless streak in the premier class world championship.

Ape?

"If Rossi had joined Ducati at the time Casey did he may have got the support needed to win from the all Italian Ducati of the day and not the despondence of a takeover transition that he must have experienced."

ape....

Rossi had more frames and different electronic tweaks than the rest of the paddock put together.......when are u blinkered rossi lovers going to understand.....he didn't do it on the ducati because he isn't good enough......and I'm not talking about winning a championship or even a race or even getting on the podium as they were flukes.....he was struggling to be top 6 half the time on a bike that had been a constant podium challenger for the previous 4 years.......he's done on the ducati what spies has done on the yamaha and look at the flak spies has got for doing fuk all on a constant podium bike........rossi can do it on the best bike, but falls woefully short on anything else

Do you know ever read anything about Ducati and how things went when Rossi was there?
Yes we all know Rossi did not perform as expected or get the results your hero Casey got.
Circumstances change year by year and riders have different qualities.Some bikes improve while some do not.
Is Rossi the only one to have a problem with the Ducati? Regarding the best bike situation I thought he was on the best bike when he went from Honda to Yamaha?

correct

But u obviously don't know that burgess said the yam was a good bike it just needed tweaking.....just as he thought the ducati would be the same....oh dear, then he realised how good stoner must be to drag it on the podium week in week out for 4yrs.....the ducati didn't change, stoner was the only rider good enough to get the results.......yes bikes do change year to year....but they don't go from 28 podiums to 3 unless there's a rider issue
