Felippo Preziosi the genius behind the Ducati Desmosedici has said that Valentino Rossi liked the way the Ducati went in the last GP at Estoril because the bike incorporated those changes which Valentino Rossi wanted.  Preziosi has been very realistic about the Ducati this season and has said that Ducati needs to work twice as hard as the other manufacturers because they have more to do in order to catch up  while the others are also making improvements constantly.  When asked about plans for next year, Preziosi answered that he will talk about it next year if the Mayan calender proves to be wrong.  Funny indeed.
