Stoner comments on other Ducati riders.
Hard but fair.
“I can’t understand why they are struggling so much. I know we are having a couple of problems but it is not that bad. I can still run top five every time without problem.
“I can’t understand the situation that is happening. They can ask for a bike that is built around them but there is not one bike out there that is built for one rider.”
“Maybe these riders expected to get on the bike and it would be fast and easy. This bike is not easy to ride and you have to work very, very hard with it.”
Melandri’s biggest complaint has been a lack of rear grip.
When asked if he too suffered from a rear grip issue, Stoner replied: “A little problem but this is not a two second problem, this is not the problem.
“You need to go to the limit of the machine and then find the problem, not just ride around without pushing and expect to make improvements.”
