I agree we all have opinions but it seems your opinions about the Ducati are all related to trying to make out the bike is fine and Rossi was the problem.
Yeah whatever, he couldn't ride the thing could he - He couldn't ride it any better than anyone else other than the one bloke that could make it perform. That's a fact and has nothing to do with me. It's your standard response - that I'm always trying to make Rossi look bad.
Dogbert - That wasn't really a true representation of the Ducati though, was it?
They had a private test a couple of days prior to the race, then the rest of the teams were hit by the weather during the weekend, leaving Ducati sitting pretty.
Not 100% no, I did say they had two days over the other teams but they'd also have have had more time over the race weekend had they had full dry sessions. He may not have finished second (I'd say definitely not if Pedrosa hadn't been wiped out and Stoner had been there) but he had a massive gap to Hayden who hadn't been at the 2 day test. That wasn't normal, so the only point I was suggesting was that with time, they found a better set up for Rossi who then rode the bike quicker. It's unlikely the other teams would have improved a second or so a lap more had they had full sessions and pushed him back to 10th, but granted that doesn't mean it is capable of regularly winning races.
Wosi - I suggest it is Bulto and Bum Chum Nostro who are losing their grip?
HaHa - this from the man who is now performing back-flips quicker than his pet goldfish that the cat has pawed out of its bowl. Can I remind you of how you used to blame the CF frame (Stoner's fault of course) for the handling woes of the Ducati. Then, when Rossi got his way and pronounced himself very happy with the new perimiter framed bike at Sepang you danced around saying I told you so. Then, when there was no improvement in results on said bike and Rossi deemed it impossible to set up, you joined the Emmet bandwagon - often linking his article on "the problem with the Ducati" and gleefully pointing out how the 90 degree V twin was at the root of Ducati's problems.
Now you find Honda has one, so another change of tack and it's now the size of it that's the problem, not the configuration. Fck me man, what's next, it's the wrong colour or has the wrong shape cam covers?
Looks like your chances of providing those tangible reasons for Ducati's problem are dribbling away faster than Rossi's reject parts into the 5 ringed skip.
