Loris: We must find limits

Italian veteran Loris Capirossi has refused to point the finger of blame at Ducati’s test team for failing to get a new engine management and electronic engine braking system up to speed faster.

Capirossi and GP7 800 team-mate Casey Stoner have spent much of the last two tests in Jerez and Malaysia working to develop the system, even though Ducati has two test riders in Shinichi Itoh and Vittoriano Guareschi.

Capirossi said: “We have to make a lot of tests to check everything but our test team made quite a good job. But the problem is they go two seconds slower than us so it’s difficult to compare everything. When you push to the limit you start to really understand what’s working. The base is quite good and we have to improve that.”
