Dutch TT Dashboard

With the Hondas suffering in Holland and Lorenzo set back by injury, it was the return of the King at Assen as Valentino Rossi took his first win in two years. See how it's affected the championship.

Oh those beastly HP Honda's

On average in the seven races to date this year the difference between the fastest Honda and the fastest Yamaha has been a measly 1.9kmph. Or in your archaic British speak a smidgeon over one mile per hour.

Hedge

You're waffling now mate. You can spin it anyway you want but to say that the Ducati didn't have a power advantage because the Honda possibly had the advantage at 3 tracks out of 18 is laughable. Who's to say that the tracks where the Honda did well weren't due to some other completely unrelated factors (weather, mechanicals, crashes, injury etc) You've assumed way too much and proved nothing. The Ducati was a missile that year and no amount of spin and bullshit can change that. Although I'm sure you'll try. But as I said before, no reasonable person would, or has doubted this.

"to say that the Ducati didn't have a power advantage because the Honda possibly had the advantage at 3 tracks out of 18 is laughable"

Prove it... Honda did well at all the tracks... at 3 I counted they did better than Ducati... Rossi's Yamaha was always well down the speed sheets... at the San Marino GP he was 5kph slower than Guintoli on the Tech 3! That's significant in your books. Guintoli was only 2.5kph slower than the fastest Ducati. These are the statistics you'd use to prove that the Ducati did have a significant speed advantage over it's competition if it did... it didn't which is why you're not.

More waffle

You're repeating yourself now hedge. I'm perfectly happy with what I've said and have no need to prove anything. Infact if you're so sure of yourself then the onus is really on you to disprove what I've said. And by disprove I mean with actual facts, not you're personal opinion or more statistics which you freely admit you haven't really looked into, or the continuing stream of waffle and excuses. The Ducati was a missile in '07 both in terms of speed and acceleration thanks to its superior power output. Ducati took advantage of the new formula in a way the Japanese were not prepared to.

Or put another way

Stoner took advantage of a factory ride in a way the yellow bed wetters like SM were not prepared for and mentally have never re-adjusted to.

Pure tripe from SM as usual.

You sound a little upset noshbag. Nevermind, wipe away those tears and celebrate in the succes of all your fellow motorcycle racing countrymen at the moment. Where did you say you're from?

Also note the lack of

any denial in terms of the performance of the Ducati.

What's there to deny

our little sniffer of his own panties?

Dovi is performing more or less equivalently to what last years 'lead' rider did - on in essence the same machine. Given their talent level remain on about a par this is hardly surprising. Were you expecting more?

Let's also remember Rossi's best Ducati results came on the CF 'Pramac' machine, before his chaotic input fucked the thing up good and proper.

Perhaps once Corse finally move on from the bike that Rossi built we might actually see some progress from the red corner.

So you agree with me then nostro...

 

...that the Ducati had a performance advantage in 2007. Albeit in a rather angry and upset manner. Hedgey's not gonna like that!
