Shot themselves

Imo Ducati have been shooting themselves in the foot since 2007. They managed to build a bike that only one rider has ever been able to be competitive on, they ignored Stoner when he told them what was wrong with the bike, they sent Melandri to a shrink, they saw Stoners results drop off compared to his talent which did not (proven in 2011 and 2012). Preziosi may be a genius but he is also human and therefore has flaws. Failing to listen to his riders being one of them. I wish him all the best for his future and hope that Ducati can pull themselves out of the shit and get the bike sorted as we need them to be competitive.

Simple fix

The answer is simple really. All Ducati have to do is to have the rules skewed in their favour as they did in WSB....

Well I guess he didn't like being sacked.

At least somebody at Ducati figured out it was time for a change in the Corse department...

On thinking about it, was he any good?

Didn't the beast only do well, when it had more advanced electronics than the competition. Then as they caught up, it's not so greatness became apparant...

Can't really remember the details. Late. Tired. Going to bed.
