Q&A Chaz Davies
This is your first season on the Ducati, how do you view it so far?
It's gone about as expected. It's been up and down with podiums here and there. The podium at Imola came a bit out of the blue, I didn't expect to be quite that competitive there, and then in six races I had three DNFs in Portugal, Misano and at Laguna Seca I barely started. We had some DNFs there but I felt that the pace was there with a front row at Portimao and Laguna and then getting on the podium last weekend at Jerez. It's been about what was expected and a little bit up and down but it's a development year and we've gone from strength to strength in a few areas of the bike but as we've improved in some areas we've had to change the way that the bike works in others. We've made it a lot lighter, its lost 5kg compared to last year, and the engine is a lot more powerful so we're playing around and getting closer to the limit of the bike.
