Andrea Dovizioso wrecks new Ducati chassis

This is Andrea Dovizioso’s high-speed crash in Germany (yesterday) that wrecked Ducati’s hopes of getting priceless date and information on a brand new GP13 chassis. The Italian tested the new frame in Misano last week and with a slight improvement in the final part of braking he opted to run the only one available during this weekend’s German round at...

maybe

Not the most subtle way to let Ducati know what he thinks of their new bike, still, I'd imagine they got the message. Seriously somewhere in the bowels of bologna they better be working on a ground up redesign. All this 'lab' bike stuff seems to be getting them nowhere. Glad to see he escaped injury

Really ? yzm1

And Ducati should replace the strongest engine on the grid with a pneumatic valve system like your R6 has!!!!! Their biggest issue is actually Bridgestone tyre direction, a thing which compromised both the L-4 Honda and the Ducati over the past several years. Maybe the FIM should get rid of rev limits and bore restriction along with pneumatic valve train which will never find its way to the street anyway.

Foul !!!! What the hell. Just bring back the tyre war and everything will fall into its legitimate place.

Poor Dovi

He really underestimated how hard that Ducati is to ride. You would have thought after seeing the 'GOAT' and his Australian pit crew being unable to make it work that everyone else would deny any sort of offer from Ducati, but obviously the lure of having a bike built for you was too much for Dovi. Audi must have really dug deep into their pockets to lure such decent riders like Dovi, Iannone and Spies to ride their bikes, but I doubt any of them (including Hayden) will be convinced that they should stay if the results don't improve.
