He wasn't

He ran the 250 and 500cc in the same season and did not do the 350 due to time constraints in a recovery sense

It's a pity they don't fit well in a bike chassis.
Yeah basically. FPE is the most popular engine in Div 1 at the moment. At least in Europe.

I Ride: Whatever I can steal
While the Ducati has a way to go before having the full measure of the Yamaha, Lorenzo's only a victim of his own hubris, in that he believed he could so radically change his riding style to suit the bike's idiosyncratic handing. Dovi and Petrucci don't appear to be terribly victimized.

The thing I find interesting is the fact that Dovi runs a similarly long set up to Lorenzo. Their styles differ, but Dovi doesn't appear to encounter the level of understeer and lack of feel that has intermittently plagued Lorenzo.

Interesting. I'm not possessed of your keener insights into their set up. I'd love to know more details.

No real insight, I just know that both favour a long motorcycle - Lorenzo for obvious reasons. It's far more complicated than we can possibly understand and by no means is their set up identical of course, but for some reason, Dovi evidently avoids the recurrent vague feeling and understeer that is currently hampering Lorenzo.

Not doubting you. Never knew that about Dovi. I expect that would account for his capacity to gel with the Ducati.
