Regarding the Ducatiís and differences, itís interesting that Jorge chose to run the small wing setup whereas Dovi chose the full wing. Itís usually the other way around. I didnít notice what Petrucci ran with.
Could it be that Dovi overstressed his hard tyre by putting too much downforce through it?

His words were something like: ďpeople say that i make excuses. But I only tell the truth. I said before that if they give me what i wanted I will win. Finally Ducati gave me what I asked for and I was right. One side of my heart is very happy, but the other side is sad because if they did it earlier, I would have won much earlier and could tell you that I would be stayingĒ.

Then he and Rossi made some jokes and high fived each other.

Definitely looks like he is on his way out, back to Yamaha and this win was something of a very diplomatic fuck you to Ducati.

Probably one hit wonder.

Dovi used the full wing and the curved front fairing.
It’s a frankensetup that we have never seen before and is not the one they homologated in the beginning of the year. Looks like this is Dovi’s “One upgrade” of the year.

Edit: Petrux ran no aero. Didn’t see Miller’s bike, he crashed before he made it to the cameras.

I see. I really hope he stays if he finally tamed the Beast, but TBH I don't want to miss the fight with M1 boys either!

Edit:Are you sure about the quote? Because in motorsport.com quoted him as

"On one side, I am very happy. It’s like probably one of the best races of my life. The best victory of my life. But on another side, I’m sad.

"If I had before these pieces I needed, I could have had more podiums much earlier, I could have won before that race."

It was more like F you Ducati, I don't think he meant it.


he ain't staying...and believe me I'd love him to.

Whatever makes him competitive tho. A rider like him MUST be competitive every sunday. Not only for the show, but also because it's fair. Jorge displayed all his talent today and it was just a pleasure for any viewer.

also fun fact that was mentioned in an Italian post race show: with the exception of Stoner, he was the rider that needed the smaller amount of time to win on the Ducati. Makes sense as both Dovi and Iannone needed pretty much 4 years

We also got to see a very human side of him after the victory.

George has been very entitled at his peak (Not just him, every other multi time champ including Rossi were), so if nothing, the Ducati Years can be counted as a humbling experience, yet he can now go out with his head held high, on his own terms and start winning a lot again (Hopefully) on an M1.
