What about Doohanfan Land?
Away with the bleedin' fairies & Peter Pan on route to Never Never Blame Casey Stoner Land..
In varying degrees, your ilk are all the same..
Of course..he's not in the slightest bit responsible for the goings on at Ducati and their plight now, despite 4 years at the helm?
It's all DORNA's fault over 2012..fk all to do with HRC telling lies at MSMA meetings and riders voting democratically through the Safety Council?
Bags of talent. Great rider..no doubt, but don't kid yourself as a WC and undisputed #1 at Bologna that Stoner & Gabbarini were sat like maids in a row waiting to be told what to ride and how to go about their business.
If that's your line of defence to absolve them of any blame whatsoever, it's bordering on the deluded pitch CHR gave about Del Torchio and the suits making key engineering decisions and the Corse paddock being puppets..which kind of confirms what I'm saying if that's the case.
"They didn't go back to the carbon fibre bike, but they didn't go back to the trellis frame thing either.."
FFS you big girls blouse..is this the sum of your reasoning why they've kept the ALU beam frame?
You need to do a bit more homework..try frame flex under braking, airbox space & cooling for starters.
Then you can give a thesis on how Stoner said every bike felt different due to inconsistency in all the tube welding tolerances.
