Valentino Rossi has said that the post Portugal race test had shown that the Ducati is now delivering power in a more smooth and linear manner.  He also said that the problems with the front end have also come down with the bike being more sensitive in steering.  This has also been corroborated by Pramac Ducati rider Loris Capirossi.  This weekend should be interesting for Rossi and Ducati fans.
