People who say Ducati have sold out and are just copying the japanese teams are wrong. GP racing isn't about being unique it's about winning. Do none of you read any other reports on crash or on other sites? Ducati introduces the stressed member frame before in-season testing was restricted and before engine limits were imposed. Now, with current engine limits it is ipractical to have the engine as part of the frame, it does not allow you many chances to develope your bike. Read Ducatis press releases from the past couple of days, there are very sound engineering reasons to go with this frame, it's not a case of selling out of just pandering to Rossi's demands. This, combined with the new testing regulations will give Ducati a much better chance of being competative.
