Regarding the 'orange, not red?': The bikes are painted in an orange-red colour that when under sunlight and on camera looks like the Ducati red that we tend to see on screen. That's why when they go to Qatar the paint job changes to a metallic red.

Hopefully they are working on an narrower V engine, with a new frame that moves the engine forward and allows for a longer swing arm. They know and have known what is wrong, now they just need to implement. Remember they were hampered by the number of engines and a certain engineer, now they can start fresh. Problem is they lost sponsors when Rossi left (notice there isn't any Generali any more), hopefully Audi has deep pockets.

Regarding the orange/red, actually it has always been like a fluorescent orange/red because of Malboro. This goes the same all the way back when McLaren had Malboro sponsorship, and same goes for the current Ferrari in F1.

Just an observation but it seems that Dovi will be at the front of the ducati push with the ever experienced hayden in the rear, nicely illustrated in this picture, Dovi the main focus with Hayden in the background. Sorry Nicky but they will not be focussing on you.
