MotoGP » Ducati confirms 'Open' debut at Jerez


"so why think this will be any different" Because its a new direction going forward with Dall'Igna. Its a complete overhaul of the racing department and engineering structure. They are going to scrap the current bikes, and most likely dump the iconic desmo engine,the one thats been said to fark up balance because of its characterisitics, and build a proper bike from scratch. They are going to suck this year, with maybe a glimmer of hope towards the end, but they need data. For the open rules and the spec ECU, they also need a test bed as it is the clear future.

MotoGP » Hayden: Electronics key to progress


HRC corrected this and clarified that the prod bike would be .5-.8s slower that a prototype ridden by the same rider in a back to back ride situation, not .5-.8s slower than Marquez. I dont see all the hub-bub about an initial test with a shared bike thats completely new to riders, team, mechs, engineers, ect. Nobody in their right mind should expect Hayden to challenge for overall podiums against the prototype bikes. However, you have to peg him as the favorite for the Open Class Championship. He was the top Open bike during the test.
