Having been forced to postpone its planned MotoGP team launch after a positive Covid test prevented Jack Miller departing from his home in Australia, Ducati has released the following sneak peek at its 2022 race livery.

Ducati had intended to hold a virtual unveiling on Friday (January 28) but Miller's travel problems meant the official photoshoot couldn't take place in Italy before travelling to the upcoming Sepang test.

As such, Ducati has moved its team launch to February 7, between the Sepang and Mandalika tests.

However, to coincide with today's start of the Sepang Shakedown - attended by factory test rider Michele Pirro - Ducati has released this 'teaser' video, unveiling the 2022 red-and-black livery (with Lenovo remaining as main sponsor) that will take to the track during the Official test on February 5-6:

Ducati finished title runner-up in MotoGP last season with Bagnaia, who won four MotoGP races. Miller took two victories on his way to fourth in the world championship, with rookie Jorge Martin making history with the first satellite Ducati win on the Pramac bike.

Casey Stoner remains Ducati's only MotoGP world champion to date, in 2007, although the factory has finished title runner-up four times since, three with Andrea Dovizioso and now once with Bagnaia.
