Ducati keen to see Nicky Hayden in WSB

Ducati doesn’t want to cut axed MotoGP rider Nicky Hayden completely off its payroll in 2014 and will try and tempt the American to ride a Panigale in World Superbikes. The 2006 world champion has not had his factory MotoGP contract renewed for a sixth season, but there is still serious interest in his services with a range of WSB and...

nodding donkey..

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..

So, the question must be...

. .why in 2 years of trying couldn't Rossi and Burgess turn around the problems that Stoner created?

 

You're full of shit Wosi...

the blinkered old fart...

 ...at it again. Conveniently hides the fact that Flo and his cohorts failed to uplift the bike anywhere near the top step. If Stoner supposedly ran the bike to the ground, then how come Burgass and the crew couldnt change it around? the number 4 positioned bike in 2010 tumbled down to number 7 in 2011, my my

 

poor yellow fangirls, the number 23 must be etched into their souls everytime they think of the red beast :D

You should go back to the straight

Stoner bashing Wosi. Some of your other obsessions are even less salubrious

Doh?..CHR.

What you've gotta understand, is that without Rossi's clout and understanding of what constitutes a good bike..Preziosi would still be employed, Corse would still be making CF monocoque's and Ducati would be behind most of the CRT bikes.

The aluminuium beam frame is a massive improvement, everybody says so. If it wasn't..why are they still using it?

Unfortunately, Ducati wouldn't redesign that old dinosaur of a desmo lump as well, because brand image and stupidity rule. They have done a half arsed job..getting someone else to make a frame to fit around their engine and it simply hasn't worked. It's a fkin barge.

How many times have you heard their riders say the bike needs big changes? Not all this clueless tinkering.. 

It needs rubbing out and drawing again kiddies..a bit like some of you.

Stoner walked out on Ducati after they looked after him and made him what he is today..a grumpy, ex-rider that still keeps tripping over his bottom lip..haha

No seriously..he fked off just as his calamitous feedback and direction were coming home to roost. Hayden was leading him 2010 for over half a season and was unlucky not to beat him.

If Gabbarini hadn't stolen Nicky's settings for Casey at Aragon, Stoner would have been beaten by his team mate..just like Dani spanked him last year.

Let's not talk about team mates getting spanked Wosi...

 ..not when you consider Rossi's getting hammered on his beloved M1 no less, by a guy with a double collar bone fracture of all things ( ahem! )

 

Listen numbnuts, Alex Briggs has said recently that the Desmo lump is not the problem with the bike, and in fact, according to him there's not much wrong with the bike and it has the potential to be competitive as it stands now. So let's dispel that myth right there...

 

You know as well as I do, the real problem with the Ducati is fundamentally a corporate issue that's ingrained in their psyche and is the continuing factor in their downfall and nothing to do with Stoner at all.

 

You're just not gracious enough to admit it..

Myth..?

Sorry Pal..I don't believe it. Perhaps you could supply a link to Briggs' comments. It's pretty clear the bike is NOT competitive as it stands now..even if Stoner were riding it.

As for the rest of your waffle..exactly WHAT corporate issues are preventing Ducati doing better than they are, assuming the bike is competitive like you say?

Ducati obsession Wosi?

Your bloke is doing just fine back in his old M1 junkyard. Let Ducati go mate. Its not like Stoner's ghost is going appear majestically on the D16 at Aragon and prove Rossi's quip about it being the rider not the bike.

Back to Nick and 2006. I loved that race and that Championship on the day. Bayliss and Capirossi and Ducati were awesome. Hayden held his head and Rossi cracked under pressure whilst leading the title chase on the all conquering M1. Memorable that one. Would that 2013 can go into 2nd half season like that and deliver a similar Grand Finale at Ricardo Tormo.

PS. I actually do hope Rossi is in the game should that mix come to pass.

No surprises there Wosi...

..you don't buy into anything that doesn't lay the blame soley at Stoner's door. Say's a lot about you...

 

Here ya go pal..http://www.bikemagazine.co.uk

 

He says.." There's nothing wrong with the engine, nothing wrong with the frame, in my opinion. It's not about V-angle or that stuff "....he goes on to say.." I think the best way to describe it is you can measure and measure some things, but if you don't listen to what people are telling you, you won't fix anything"..


The root of the problem lies in the boardroom, not in the paddock and certainly not with Stoner. Until the powers that be start listening to what the riders and engineers on the ground are saying, nothing will change..  

 

But that kind of throws your theory out the window eh? shows how much of a chancer you really are..hahaha..

 

Stoner has said the same thing time and time again, but in your vanity you want to turn a blind eye to it and apportion blame in the manner of fanboy numero uno. More fool you...

But that kind of exonerates Rossi and Burgess as well !
