I was being sarcastic. To think that all a company has to do is....one little thing, is simply retarded.

What Mr. Head is proposing, it's equivalent to telling scientists attempting to cure cancer: "Just get a new scientist, yah know, some of them old school ones who got things done......and just change around a few things or something and bam cancer cured."


Reality......These guys are fighting over fractions of a second. Those fractions of a second cost $ and time. Even if you have the $ and have the time, the rider may or may not work.

I saw the sarcasm and had good laugh. Agree with your comments 100%. I should have used an emoticon.

The problem was last weekend they weren't fighting for a fraction of a second, they were fighting for a FULL SECOND. PER LAP.

But I am an eternal optimist. It'll happen. They've got Hayden and Spies, they won't let me down!

We can all dream that Ducati finds some mojo. I'm not holding my breath.

I think De Angelis wanted more out of the relationship.
