How about these then Wosi
Some more of Burgess' opinions from an interview at that first Valencia test. Seems he has a different take on things than you do:
But the problem at the front was real?
"Yes, but I'm still not convinced that the Ducati has a real problem at the front. I do not think the bike is a mess so serious that we can not solve if not changing the project. I repeat: I believe that the problems have been determined mostly by the physical limits of Valentino. "
But he has a particular guide.
"Yes, but Casey could have won many more races this year. And if Valencia had not chosen a tire too hard, would probably have dominated as it did in Japan and Australia. This means that the bike has closed the season on a high. "
Stoner crashed a lot and he often declared no feeling with the front.
"In most cases, has made mistakes early in the race, never at the end: this means that he drove too hard, not that the bike has betrayed him. He put too much pressure on him in the first six or seven rounds. He fell for it. "
Ducati have had a hand in the project, after two days in Valencia.
"Yes, but they are not upsetting the bike. And rightly so, because the situation of the Ducati at the end of 2010 you can not even compare to that of the Yamaha at the end of 2003. The Desmosedici is a bike that wins races, which always fight for the podium. Yamaha of those times had been only one podium finish in the year, the rest was always far behind. "
So you think just working on fine-tuning?
"I think that will solve the problems that are present on the Ducati, as well as those we have solved the Yamaha. My only regret is that we can not pick up the pace until Valentino will not give the true information. But at the same time I am calm because we can afford to wait: the Ducati bike is already competitive. And I know that from the moment when Valentino will come back strong physically, we will be able to make large advances quickly. "
And just for you, how about this remark on the CF frame from early 2011:
But Rossi’s Aussie crew chief Jerry Burgess reckons Rossi’s problem doesn’t automatically necessitate major changes to the Ducati carbon fibre chassis.
Speaking to MCN, Burgess said: “You could think the changes might be with the frame, but it could easily be an engine response problem. The basic hardware in the engine, there are lots of things that fly around and they all contribute a lot.
And I'm manipulating nothing and there is no intention of bias. If you and others keep on with this line that Burgess and Rossi are infallible, shit gold bars and pass water the quality of Moet's finest, I'll keep throwing these quotes back at you.
