+1Ducati tends to do well at Mugello. Let's see where he, the team, Dovi, etc are as we go forward. The more contenders fighting for wins the better!

Not that I think it really matters much though. he's already signed to another team. And I mean....what if he does do well? Will everyone change his mind about him then? the dude can win on a Ducati in Mugello and people still hate on him, lol.

u missed my point entirely. none of that matters one bit if the rest of the bike is a turd. a manufacturer must fix the big issues first. then they can worry about the small ones.

also, composites are infinitely more tunable than homogenous metals. and all materials are predictable by engineers with enough time and computing power.

I think it's fair to say that Lorenzo must pass points totals significantly above and beyond Rossi's to make a solid argument that he has faired better on the Duc.

What do you think is fair to say? xxx more points/podiums/wins? Or is it simply that there can be no conclusion so let's just blow smoke and have fun with this?

I think we all know Rossi is the GOAT and I don't really care about this comparison anymore.

I suspect Jorge will race at least one more and not score much, bringing his avg down.
