Well there you have it yellow eyed Rossi fans.A full statement from AUDI and not one word of mention of your beloved midpack rider.No reason to mention him or maybe too embarrassed? But I am sure Ducati will not stay winless for too long now that AUDI own them.I guess now it will be just a matter of who takes their first win under new ownership???Just my opionion

I'm curious to see how their projects all turn out in the racing world. Audi is very competitive and knows how to win. It's interesting, as DKW, which eventually became Auto Union, was once the biggest motorcycle manufacturer back in the day so this is an interesting buy and makes you wonder if they may branch off their own line of motorcycles in the future??

Crash also forgot to mention that VW Group also owns Porsche now.

The End Is Nigh.
Small and independent no more, toast a great company that is now but a brand in a portfolio.
The suits have bought out the engineers and everything that emanates from Bologna will have to go through a committee from now on.

The rumour was something- the 'offical' is no surprise. Audi, VW, Porsche, (and god knows whatever else) they are all part of the one and same family so this purchase of Ducati is a bargain if not something they got for pocket money or loose change.

Eager to see what will be the new owner's priorities... would be nice to see the official team back in the WSBK. Yeah, MotoGP is more prestigious but if they didn't mention it in their press release... :)
