There is plenty of info out there that show that the GP7 was designed late 2005 and build in the 2006 season. The GP8 was desgined late in the 2006 season and build in the 2007 season. Same pattern for the GP9. At the same time Ducati harldy gave any update parts to its riders and hardly listened to their input.
After two years of input by someone who they listened to and gave updates to during the season they are still nowhere. Ducati's problem has been its design culture without really listening to riders ever and its incapability, due to resource restrictions, to rapidly update bikes. Something that might change now that they have Audi management, Audi technological information and Audi design and build facilities for the racing parts.
