It sounds to me like there isn't an all new Ducati. Although, Nicky tested an all new chassis at Valencia with positive results.

From the riders' comments, I would guess taming/improving the power delivery is the top priority. I wonder if they can do it?

The rumored announcement that Preziosi would be out at Ducati has not come yet, either.

I don't understand that. He's won twice as many championships as Stoner and doesn't say half the stupid crap he does.

I always liked Lornezo way better than Stoner.

Five days and one half-assed test into the 2013 (off)season and we're already on page 12 with 175 posts. Good work team.

We should have some great rumors, predictions, favorites, hates, nationality slurs, GOAT nominations & denials, (special Ducati arguments) and LOTS of other info/drivel posted by the time the Sepang tests happen.

WTF.....we could hit a couple of hunnerd pages B4 the season starts.

Feexed for you. Stoner won in '07 and '11, while Lorenzo won in '10 and '12.

Some people count winning the 250cc Grand Prix World Championship as...uh...winning a world championship.

Ask Steve Baker about World Championships. But take a few steps back if you talk about KR being the first 'merican world champ.
