Returning the Ducati GP bike to a championship competitive level will be an extremely strenuous process as it seems there are plenty of issues to resolve beyond the actual performance of the bike, but it is great to see that the company appears determined to commit as much energy and resources as it will take to accomplish this objective. This unwavering resolve and dedication to advancement is the Ducati spirit we have come to appreciate in the company's production bikes; I'm pleased to see it now returning to the Ducati WSBK and MotoGP teams.

It's interesting what Stoner said about the mental aspect being the most important part of riding the Duc. Cal just being happy to have a factory ride no doubt helps in having an open-minded attitude towards the bike. Perhaps the problem with Rossi and Hayden wanting the bike to adapt to them vs the other way around won't be an issue with Cal. Can't wait for next season already.

Thanks for posting up, Phil.

Andrea Dovizioso : The enthusiasm has faded .

The enthusiasm of twelve months ago has faded with Andrea Dovizioso . While Honda and Yamaha motorcycles rolled to the new developments out of the box at the Valencia test , there was no significant progress in Ducati .

" We tested a new chassis on Tuesday , but there is actually no difference," said Dovizioso sober. "Therefore, we have not improved us."

Striking was only on Tuesday that new body parts were mounted on the GP13 . "We also tested a different cover and different polls. Some things we have already tested, but we have once again made ​​it to Gigi , to give ( Dall'Igna ed ) feedback , "said Dovizioso on. "The lap time was pretty fast. In the end, the sun was very low , so it was difficult to drive fast. "

Dovizioso was measured on Tuesday in 1:32,568 minutes. On the fastest times of the day was two seconds. "With the lap time I am satisfied , but the bike is just like the race weekend . We have not been improving . But we did expect , "said the Italian. The great hope is Gigi Dall'Igna . He should restructure Ducati and lead back to the top.

Dovizioso has already discussed with his fellow hard-working. "Of course . He is also in contact with the technicians . Here we do not have much to try , but the feeling is very positive with Gigi . " Moreover, also in Valencia Michele Pirro in the test application . He also does not test revolutionary new developments. " It tests the same things as us," confirms Dovizioso . "In the past he has always tested something before we have received the material. "

That's a good point. Nicky has his best years there when Casey was on the bike able to fight at the front. Nicky could see that the bike was capable which gave him the confidence to push. Once Rossi arrived all he did was complain and go slow, which affected Nicky's confidence. At one point during those two years I think Stoner said Nicky simply needs to ride the bike and ignore all the other stuff. Or something like that. Either way I think Stoner is quite right about the mental aspect of it.

this is exactly what made stoner so great. he could ride ANY bike fast. he adapted to the bike and went from there. rossi (not singling him out becuase there are many riders) that need everything perfect for Them to be fast. for 2 years he need the bike to suit his style instead of changing his style to ride the bike.

if you watched testing yesterday they had a big part on this. the announcers were saying how just after half the season was over dovi was already beaten. he had no enthusiasm at all. hayden had none as it was his last rides and ducati was finished not only cause the bike is crap but cause the riders had given up.

GIGI: Moto GP is top priority

some more infro from GIGI:

poor google translate from motorsport-total.com

Ducati MotoGP has priority
by Gerald Dirnbeck & Sebastian Fränzschky
20th November 2013 - 11:48 clock
Luigi Dall'Igna clarifies that good MotoGP Results have priority , the development of the Panigale but at the same time can not be neglected
Andrea Dovizioso
The development of the Desmosedici currently enjoys the highest priority

(Motor -Total.com ) - In the racing division of Ducati piles up the work . The 2013 season went down in history as the biggest disappointment in recent years. Both in MotoGP and the World Superbike Championship , the disgraced cult brand from Bologna. For the first time since the MotoGP debut , it was not possible to achieve a podium finish . The final victory of the Desmosedici is already back three years.

And also in the World Superbike currently nothing works according to plan. The series in the highly successful Superbike 1199 Panigale can not keep up with the ZX -10R Kawasaki and Aprilia RSV4 under normal conditions in Superbike configuration. Only when it rains Alstare pilots could compete in the 2013 season ahead. In the coming season, Ducati is back with its own team at the start.

Although Ducati is significantly smaller than Honda or Yamaha will continue to fight on both fronts. Honda is represented in the Superbike World Championship only thanks to the efforts of Honda Europe and Ronald ten Kate . Yamaha withdrew from the series back in 2011 , although the R1 was capable of winning . However, in Bologna the Superbike World Championship is part of the tradition. All Ducati Superbikes were victorious , only the 1199 Panigale has yet to be put on the right track.

But what is currently at Ducati Corse priority? " MotoGP is the motorcycle racing , the most important class in the world. We want to improve our MotoGP results as quickly as possible. On the other hand, the World Superbike belongs to the history of Ducati . Therefore we have to work in this area ," analyzes Luigi Dall ' Igna , who leads the Department of Ducati racing since mid-November. " MotoGP is a priority , but we must also develop the Superbike ," said the former Aprilia employees.
