It's been 10 years since we last won anything. And the bloke who won that...well, he comes and goes and we still pay him, but he tells us how far away he lives and how that's a problem, and then turns up and rides faster than everyone in testing.

Fixed it.

Dude has no filter. I love it. A piece of the post test interview:

“I'll be honest” he confided “the enthusiasm and affection that the fans showed me at World Ducati Weekend was way over the top. I did not expect so much warmth. I must admit, I was flattered. I did not expect it at all.”

After all, you are the only MotoGP world champion that Ducati can claim...

“Sure, but the fans were only praising and cheering for me, sometimes neglecting this year's official riders. At a certain point I felt a bit embarrassed for them.”

I hope geo reads that post somehow, the best thing we have going for us is his 46 hatred.
More than anything else he has to win the championship to rub rossi's nose in it.

POST RACE UPDATE:

Dear George,

I really should send you the Email I just got from Matthias in Germany.

But you don't know any German swear-words, so it would be pointless. And I cannot risk being hit by all the broken shisha pipes and busted chairs I see being hurled out of the smashed window of your motorhome.

Eleventh, George? Seriously? Eleventh? It wasn't raining.

I know you said it was. Franco and Loris even drove out and looked in case it was actually raining on the corners where you said it was, but they couldn't see any rain.

And no, I do not think finishing in 11th after starting in 12th is a "great improvement" and that you need a trophy for "Bravest, Best and Fairest". And no, we're not making up a sash for you to wear that says "Here is the Butter, putas!"

Jonas Fucking Folger beat you. Alex Rins beat you. Sure, it was their first ever race on a MotoGP bike, so it's maybe like you say "Beginner's Luck".

But Scott Redding and Jack Miller also beat you. And you don't even know who they are, even though you've been racing them for a while.

Jesus fucken Christ, George. Even Asparagus A managed to haul his shitty Aprilia into sixth, which you would not have seen because you were in 11th.

I'm thinking you'll be racing with those boys a lot this year. Which is why Matthias is so upset. He could have bought all of them, and Zarco, and given them all Ducatis and harems full of prostitutes for what he's paying you to come 11th.

Now keep the noise down. We have to go and have a few wines with Dovi. He came second. He is so happy and really quite pretty in his bridesmaid's dress. He even led the race for a while.

But that "Spanish traitor-puta" as you call him, won.

No, you don't want to know who came third. Trust me.

We're going to Argentina next, George. Yes, it does suck to be you at the moment.

Always hopeful,

Gigi.
Thanks from flobrandx, MMC, youngR and 3 others

The reality is its a good move. If Ducati own one of the fastest men on the track, then it's one less for Dovi to try and best.......

I don't particularly like him but I would love to see Marquez on a Ducati

They could have picked up Jack Miller for 1/4 of the coin and at least we would have had someone to like.

Now that post race one is very funny. I got up early to watch the race live and boy was it worth it. Some great rides. Crashlow gave us a good show and came off twice. Whoregay made Rossi look good. Great for Vinales to win his first ride on the Yamaha. Great for Dovi. I wish he had won. Best of all was that VR came in 3rd in front of Marquez and Whoregay.

unfortunately after yesterdays performance i dont think geo will come anywhere close to the championship.

i wonder if 46 will hang on another 2 years after this contract just so George cant go back to yamaha. just think it could have been George and maverick if it wasnt for some has been holding on
