Just like everybody who's ridden for them, Nicky Hayden has had his fill of Bologna..
Apparently, they wanted him to sign a 2 year deal but he preferred just 12 months.
His reasoning was simple.." If things don't improve, you're not gonna want to be around me and I'm not gonna want to be around you."
Ducati are getting beaten by CRT bikes. Their results are getting worse. Nicky is best off out.
MotoGP champ's with no less than 10 titles between them have given up on Ducati lately, walked away frustrated by their arrogant intransigence and empty promises.
It's a complete and utter shambles at Corse..how long will Marlboro bankroll the failure? Audi may have the backing of VW but they don't know a thing about bikes.
BMW tried to conquer WSB and failed. They've made bikes for 100 years.
You only have to look at the once stronghold of WSB to see how ill conceived Preziosi's Monocoque idea is. Everybody says it shit..apart from Casey Stoner, who fell off the fkin thing trying to ride around problems no less than five times in races during the last season he rode it..all by himself. Nobody else to blame.
It's patently clear to all, apart from bitter die hard Ducatisti and 27er fanboi, the bike is the problem.
Between them, Stoner & Preziosi have brought a once proud racing marque to their knees.
The shame..The horror..
