I think that was all Ducati started the season with.

At this track, last year Dani Pedrosa rode the best, most aggressive race I've seen from him.
He left Stoner crying in the sand box. It was the highlight of the season.

This track typically provides close exciting races with lots of passing. I enjoy watching the drop down the back hill into Sachsen Kurve. Always plenty of action there.

I hope it's a dry race for Jorge's sake. I want him to have full confidence when Rossi beats him.

What they need to do is sign Valentino Rossi to a huge contract!
That would solve everything!

Ducati results 2011, 2012, 2013 so far

This REALLY is intolerable and embarrassing.


How a company can pour millions of corporate and sponsor $$$ into a fleet of turnip trucks......

I didn't think it was all that bad for Ducati, until the CRT's crept up on them, and now have started beating them...

Nicky used to be a threat for a top five, and an occasional podium. Now he's just nowhere. It's a bummer.

That´s true.. and Brno last year (beating JLo in the last corner) was also a damn good showing from Dani. Changed my view of him for sure. Not only is he a damn fast rider, but he CAN and WILL fight, if it comes down to that.

Didn't I read that they only have the one 'new' frame anyway

THAT is the biggest tragedy. Since going to Ducati- NH has generally been on a downward slide (no pun intended)

Anyone see a practice session from a few years back, when Casey was on the Ducati... he was leaned over so hard for the right heading down that hill he levered the wheels off the ground with the footpeg... back when the Ducati still sucked but only one guy could ride it.

1. Pedrosa
2. Rossi
3. Marquez

4. Lorenzo who fades late due to the shoulder, and is nudged aside by Marq

Dovi bins the turnip truck in the gravel turn 1, lap 6, while dicing with Espargaro.

5. Nicky gets by both Dovi and Aleix.

Colin wheelies.

I think we all feared what he was getting into when it was announced at Indy so long ago. He went from the Repsol Honda to Melandri's Ducati.

But it's not like he had any better options at the time. He still doesn't.
