Listen Pal..I like you. I like your banter and reckon you may well have a bit of style.
BUT..I have yet to read any comment from you that goes deeper than that. You don't make any telling comments about the politcs, and you certainly don't have anything to add when it comes to how these bikes work.
If you apply the 25% equation I mentioned earlier, after taking your head from a dark place, you may start to get a little closer to understanding.
Take a look at Haydens rookie season on the Ducati, he had a nightmare to start with because he had to work with what Stoner wanted, which didn't suit him.
After Donington 2009, and Casey's unfathonable decision to run wets when everyone else chose slicks, he had the show to himself because Stoner went MIA. Ducati had to listen to him because he was on his own. He had a lttle bit more freedom to experiment with settings he wanted to try, which allowed him to emerge from Casey's shadow a little.
From that point onwards his results improved and he finished the season better than his struggling start. He continued this improvement through to 2010 and has his best season ever on the Ducati that year.
So when Hayden says that the current bike is better now than it was then, yet his results and points haul are significantly worse, I'm inclined to believe him. Ducati would appear to think the same as they will be going forward with the beam frame and not bringing back the CF monocoque.
I don't want to get into your petty arguments about whether it's better, much better or massively improved, that type of debate is for girls.
The fact of the matter is that you said that Ducati improved under Stoner but went backwards under Rossi, and used a set of facile disingenuous stats to back up the claim.
The reality is that the bike HAS improved but the results perhaps don't show it so much because the opposition improved. That the satellite bikes of Honda and Yamaha are regularly beating the works Ducati's and Hayden in particular now, as opposed to 2010, kinda gives us a clue.
I hope this addresses the point you figured wosi didn't have the heart or bottle to respond to Sunshine.
Try and be happy now that Casey has gone because your starting to make yourself look a bit of a lightweight.
