Finally they sacked preziosi... Great engineer, but you can't devellop a bike on a computer. You have to analyse data out off the races... That he could not do... Same problem ferrari has in F1, on the computer they have the fastest car but not on the track where it matters!

To answer a question if there will be a GP13 tested, NO! Audi frose the whole devellopement as they didn't progress in 2 yrs! So no GP13!

Suter to build the chassis???? Everybody want to dump th suter chassis and ducati will let them devellop the gP13 chassis! Dovi and company are in big trouble!

Rossi tried to push Ducati in the right direction!

But now it is DucAUDI and they will finish the bike how it has to be to go in real competion!

2014 will be the year that cool Bradl will ride it:
a German pilot on a German Bike!

And then ...

“Towards the end of my time with Ducati I had the engineers working together a lot better. Casey Stoner.

If you believe that one then you will believe anything. Ladies and gentleman we have a world class ego here...

Delusions of grandeur from Stoner.

@boner "Audi know whom they have lost..."
Yes, they've lost a grossly over-priced mid pack performer, who by his own admission is trying his hardest, but ISN'T PREPARED TO PUSH IT! Racer? not pushing it?
Most of your opinions of what Audi or Ducati should, would, or could do are based on the premise that Rossi is infallible. He has proven that to be flawed. He doesn't even believe it himself anymore. That's why he begged for a ride back at Yamaha, at 1/10 of his salary at Ducati. Even then, I think he got the better end of the deal. Rossi is history at Ducati. And not history that will be celebrated. It was a disaster for Ducati. Total.
As we now know, it takes more than charisma to win races.

Haha ! Your username gives you away as a VW/Audi fan !! But yeah, interesting times ahead. I can't wait to see what they can do with the Ducati. Hopefully it will become very competitive. In an ideal world, I'd love to see 7 or 8 riders all battling it out at the front !

BMW are a car company with motorcycling experience. Took them 3 years to get wsbk win and that's an easier competition. Motogp will require an alien to win and develop the bike provided the factory know how to use the feedback. Who are ducati left with now?
They would do better if they employed Yoda from Kawasaki .
Their v4 is a carbon(sic) copy of the rc45 - didn't that have big handling issues.
Unless Audi get some pragmatic motorcycle engineers aboard I can see them leaving motogp in 2014.

It was wasting time this Ducati adventure, Vale! Jump on a real bike and bring back the old times yet again :) But unfortunately, the season 2034 looks very much like a swan song for this this beautiful sport.
