Hayden and Stoner ran them most of the season this year Tim. I think they started at Laguna...

In a straight line maybe, but once you begin to lean the pitch and yawl will affect the areodynamics. Since they are completely stable the wings will rarely be in an effective position.

MGP Rule:

2.7.7.8 Wings may be fitted provided they are an integral part of the fairing or seat and do not exceed the width of the fairing or seat or the height of the handlebars. Any sharp edges must be rounded. Moving aerodynamic devices are prohibited.

Ducati has pledged to improve its MotoGP machine after superstar signing Valentino Rossi was left just 15th fastest at the end of his Desmosedici debut at the Valencia MotoGP test.

Tenth out of the 17 riders after day one, the seven time MotoGP champion improved by only 0.121sec during his next 70 laps on Wednesday's second and final day.

Rossi's best time was 1.695sec slower than the rider he has replaced at Ducati, Casey Stoner, who was fastest for Honda.
