Can Crutchlow fix the Ducati?

Marco Melandri, Nicky Hayden, Valentino Rossi and Andrea Dovizioso are all top level riders who have failed to make the infamous Ducati Desmosedici MotoGP bike work. The latest rider to take on the Desmo challenge is Britain's Cal Crutchlow, and he's confident. pollcomment

Fearful for Cal

I really hope Ducati can make progress this year but my only fear Cal can be over aggressive ay times and will want to show that the bike can be ridden but this may come at a price !!!! still hope he can prove me wrong.

It's the factories job to fix it (agree with Alex, skip and redesign)

Cal's job to ride it.

Throw it in the skip and don't let Gigi leave the office 'til there's a new one

 Year on year from 2007 stoner got less consistent, put stoner on the duke now and he would struggle, I think he would be much better than anyone else but Yamaha Honda have moved too far ahead

I have to change my vote to "nope". That bike has been the requiem of too many good riders.

It's not the factory's job to fix it. Likewise Cal won't get it to work.

It's a team effort based on riders feedback, suspension experts and the Ducati race team to determine what is needed. Ducati can only provide parts based on engineering and scientific feedback from both riders and teams. It's down to the Ducati race teams to fix it.

 Because Kawasaki had not won the WSBK title since 1993 they were never going to win again. After Doohan and Rossi wiped the floor with Yamaha they were never going to win again. Aprilia will never win in MotoGp because of the Cube. The world is flat and nothing changes. Except Ducati have a new owner, have staed clearly what they will do when and so hfar have done it. They have new riders,a new Racing Director and new engineers. So why will it never happen?
