CMIIW, but I think, Ducati is the only manufacturer with a major chassis redesign. I wouldn't be so surprised if they are not familiar with how it behaves yet, especially with the tight test rules.
So, while other teams are fine tuning their bikes, Ducati is still testing the frame. They might have bigger changes in chassis design/geometry for the next test compared to other teams, who have years of experience on twinspar.
But IMHO, this is a huge step forward in the setup department, with the more predictable responses and feedback to the small setup changes, compared to the inconsistent feedback given by the stressed member chassis bike.
Regarding engine. We would not be able to compare engines when the chassis is not working optimally.
Hope the new test rules would give enough time for Ducati to find the magic formula they've been looking for, and they can become competitive again. (I wouldn't be so surprised if people say the new rules will benefit Rossi or Ducati the most. But
