I keep thinking the same if any body can get decent race results. But then that would be because of Audi $$'s, not the rider.

barbedwire...In my opinion Ducati need another engineering angle and Audi is a good company to provide it, I'm not sure money was the issue these past two years?

I agree, I actually now firmly believe that Rossis departure from Ducati was because they do not have the talent to make the necessary changes. They need to poach people from Honda or Yam, as they already have tried with Masao it seems as though they now know this too. Honda and Yam have both done it, and the consistent updates of chassis, engines etc even a whole new bike for Honda midseason, means that they have the people who usually know how to turn rider feedback into a better race bike.



Resources can only get you so far if your all out of ideas, and Ducatis major problem is its lack of fit with the control rubber. If they had their own tyre supplier, then the story would be much different.
