Valentino Rossi continued to seek a solution that can "tame" Ducati mount. Seven times MotoGP world champion, said that the position of riding a motorcycle, would be one way out, so that Ducati can get a good speed.
Since making his debut this season, Rossi has not shown encouraging performance, because until the 14th series, "The Doctor" on the podium only once, when finishing in the top three French GP. In fact, he has made some changes, including "grafting" 800cc engine to the chassis 2012 (Desmosedici GP11.1), and switch to an aluminum chassis, which came into use in the last series in Aragon, last weekend.
However, all the changes it has not shown an encouraging change. Although the bike was feeling better, but the reality Rossi only finish in the top 10 in races in Motorland Aragon. However, the failure was compounded by the problem tires wear out, and start from the pitlane.
Well, after a number of changes that have not demonstrated significant progress, Rossi looking for another solution. The 32-year-old rider from Italy is curious, whether riding position did influence the performance of Ducati motorcycles. In fact, Stoner is very fast in a straight line while still a squad team based in Bologna that.
"We lost in some areas is quite strange," said Rossi.
"For example, compared with the Stoner us much more slowly in a straight line, with the same motor as we have in the first test.
"We need to understand this, because the driving position is probably more suitable for shorter riders and smaller, than at high rider like me, or like Nicky (Hayden). We must understand if they can fix it."
Rossi said the problem with racing a position clearly visible through the television.
"I feel very uncomfortable on the bike, so we had to think of something to move the weight, and if you see me on television, I do not drive a motor as in the past," he explained. "It's very obvious from the outside."
Former Honda and Yamaha rider was admitted, Ducati has so far not been able to resolve the problem at hand. Although they have worked in many different ways, but not much that can be overcome.
"We are still slow. In addition, in some races we also inconsistent. It seems we can not solve the problem."
