IMHO because that's a problem which he has had no reason to worry about much...yet

I think it's because he drags his feet. Also could be bike setup rider weight or anything else effecting the cg height. Getting weight down low on the pegs and pushing you body fwd should help over letting your feet dangle and you bum rest against the seat rest.

Does anyone remember a race where MM seemingly couldn't decide which foot he should have down before the start, and he was still swapping them when the race started? It was in his first MotoGP year if I recall correctly.

Dovi raced 9 successive years in GPs with Honda, and this is his 3rd with Duc, so it'll be quite a while before one can think of him as a 'career Ducati rider'. But I share the sentiment re reward for sticking at it.

Ditto re Iannone, FWIW: 5 years on Aprilias, 3 years on Hondas, this his 3rd on a Duc.
