Hands full

Seems to me that poor Nicky has not just a mountain to climb but needs to find a new ride befor it's all over. Best of luck with that.

Gonna be ugly

Besides the obvious machine/set-up data disadvantages, the Texas round will be one in which two American riders (one FROM Texas no less!) will be riding Ducatis and looking very uncompetitive. Best to look away.

Back to the future for good 'ol boy Nicky?

If Corse are feeling generous they might well offer Hayden a WSBK ride 2014. Or are they thinking Superstock?

Come to WSB.

Call it a day after this season Nicky and come and race in WSB,i would love to see him smoking that back tyre again on a Superbike. Whats the point of carrying on with that thing in Moto GP. Its just yet another total waste of talent.

WSB

Padded100 is right, Hayden still has a lot to offer and It would be good to see him in the WSB paddock. Alot of people say he is over the hill (didnt I hear that about Rossi) but to me an ex world champ doesnt become poor over night It would also be good to see Dovi and Spies in the WSB paddock next season. At least with WSB most of the riders have a chance of a podiom Plus the racing is better and its not nearly so political. The only fly in the ointment is Dorna taking over WSB They relize for excitement and close racing WSB is the premier class and if DORNA have their way WSB will become a second rate series with 2nd rate riders riding 2nd rate bikes

The multi-billion dollar VW umbrella group that owns Audi and hence Ducati, couldn't afford the $150 000 it would have taken to get the Ducati MotoGP team to the COTA test. What a joke!

I was quoting Gobmeier about the $150 000 (or maybe Euros). In any event, it would have been a good opportunity to get the gear ratios and some base settings sorted out. It could be that Audi don't give a rat's other than owning the name "Ducati".
