Ryder on the one rider wonder Ducati

Bautista, you ain't going to get it on one that includes the word 'Ducati.'

Casey thinks the other Ducati riders should use what he calls a 'simpler setting'. As Casey still uses what is now
an obsolete electronics package because he can retain more control--other teams reckon he uses as near as makes no
difference no spin control, whereas other rides have to load up on the electronics to ride the thing, I think that
means switching most of the electronics off. Le Mans has never been kind to Nicky, his best here is a fifth, so any
improvement in his fortunes will be significant.

I just looked at the times... and even Mika is down in the list. A bit faster than Hayden, but nothing worthy of Casey like praises...

If rear tire temps are the problem (as Mel & Hayden have said....) then Ducati's man is none other than McCoy

Gazza can hardly get in the top 10 in WSS last I checked.

Not that I don't want to see him back in the top class, guy's hit and miss, but when he hits it's a slam dunk.

WSS isn't enough HP to spin the rear all race long....
