If you want proof of the equipment performance gulf between Ducati & HRC/Yam factory team, then its in front of us every weekend...
Ducati (with a rider pairing both former WC's) run consistently with the Satellite ikes & often beaten by them. Which means...
HRC / Yam are able to provide Satellite bikes which are so well developed that they are able to compete strongly (& with allegedly inferior riders to boot) with Factory Ducati (who's own Satellite bikes were squabbling further back, just in front of CRT's).
Yet.. even though HRC/Yam satellite bikes are so good, HRC & Yam are able to keep a few percent in-hand for their own factory teams' bikes, and streak away from the field.
Without being permitted to test more to improve, then how on Earth are Ducati supposed to get onto a dry race podium, let alone a win? Answer - they can't.
