@Realist, Usually I agree with you but this time I have to beg to differ. Ducati's problems are well known even to the layman. Their former engineering leadership was too proud to change the engine design radically. Audi knows good and well what needs to be done, and you can bet they will do it. But is will take a totally new engine with very short rods, wrist pins moved closer to the dome, valve train shortened, gearbox and clutch closer to the crank, yada, yada.
They probably didn't want to go in half baked and look foolish. My bet is next year is a totally new design with mass moved much further forward, longer swing arm, and more adjustability.
