Ducati head to Sepang

“Technically speaking, it's a track where, apart from a slow hairpin, there are no stop-and-go sections like those at Motegi, where we suffered on acceleration and on the exits from the tight corners,” he said.

“There are two long straightaways where we can take advantage of our engine's horsepower. It will be important to preserve the tyres by finding a setup that enables us to have a steady performance for the entire race.

“It's something that we've been able to do in recent races but that will be more difficult here at Sepang because of the high temperatures.”
