These are still early days for Ducati, they dont have the data that the Yam or Honda have, but they might be able to push the rear tire harder in the races to come, which might mean 5-10 more seconds by the end of a race. I would say 1/2 the time they can make up just by finding the right geometry/power/suspension/setup, and the other 1/2 will come after further refinements and data collection in order to smooth out the overall package. Its exciting to see Ducati working with the chassis, I really hope their math is good and they start moving in a positive/consistent way. That said, this years tires are not really strong, so if Ducati end up with chatter in the front/rear it would not be surprising (like the aluminum swing arm.)
