Agreed. He is usually near the front at the start but just trails off at the end of every race. I don't know if it is a personal endurance issue or if the Duc is just that hard to ride that it takes that much out of the rider. I suspect the latter.

He did use the super soft tires this round while everyone else was on the soft. Maybe the tires went away on him during the race. That's just this past round.

I've read that to turn the Duc, you have to light the rear up. Not such a big deal with a fresh tire in the early stages so they hang on up front.

That becomes an issue later in the race on a soft tire and is behind the drop we see in Dovi and Crutchlow later on...pure speculation.

this.... when the tire drops off the under steer issue that all Ducati riders complain about REALLY kicks in. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=ducati+motogp+understeer
