His partner was telling him it was Bautista, and he still persisted it was Abraham

I'd have thought it obvious, I agree, but I only have reservations about his overall ability, ie nil, a bit like all one bike type riders, brilliant on one, a real failure at any other.

He was a rather handy 250 rider.

Although I am a fan I tend to agree he has become too specialised in his latter career, in terms of all three of bikes, conditions and particularly tires. As I keep saying, while not being suited by bikes and conditions is his problem, I can't see why he can't have tires which suit him.

He most definitely needs a certain type of bike. Ducati is definitely doing all they can to satisfy his needs and he looks genuinely happy be their efforts. I would never in a million years thought thats how he would take it. With that said he has a good shot at a few podiums late in the season starting here then silvertone, aragon, japan, malaysia, and phillip island. All tracks ducati does alright at. I think he will podium at least one or more of these races.

Anybody want to hazard a guess as to what this is mounted on the front of Dovi's bike? Mainly - it's a battery, but what else and for what purpose?

Looks like two wide axial fans. Bottom one looks like it blows into air intake. Top one ... hard to tell but just looks like it blows onto fairing .... unless theres a hole under the white fan outlet. Not just cooling for a running but not moving bike?

Kinda what I figured. I'm not a big tech guy - so no clue as to what's being cooled at that part of the bike. You'd think, if they're only using it when the bike is in the garage, they'd just run a flexible tube from a bigger fan or compressor.
