Ducati released the first pictures of its 2009 MotoGP race livery at Madonna di Campiglio in Italy on Wednesday, during its ongoing 'Wrooom' press ski meeting.

Like all previous factory Desmosedicis, the GP9 - which features a carbon fibre chassis and will be campaigned by Casey Stoner and new team-mate Nicky Hayden - will race in Marlboro-inspired red and white, with few livery changes compared with previous years.
