Yesterday he Ducati team concluded the two days of tests that they celebrated at home, that is, in the misano circuit. Instead of doing like all the other teams and staying on Monday to test at the Brno circuit, they preferred to pack their bags and go to test the new evolutions in familiar territory.
During the two days have tested the evolution of the chassis used for the first time in the Mugello test in order to concentrate the weight of the Ducati Desmosedici and improve your cornering. They also tested a new swingarm and both will be ready for the next appointment to be held right there, in Misano.
With Nicky Hayden on the mend of the injuries to his right hand, the work fell on Valentino rossi and in the Ducati Team fitting room, Franco Battaini. In the end, they did not test the new engine since, having not renewed Valentino Rossi for next year, they did not see it necessary to accelerate the tests of this new engine.
Valentino Rossi completed 60 laps the first day and another 80 the second, with a better temperature. An attempt has been made to minimize tire wear and consequently the drop in performance after the first few laps. The true litmus test It will be on September 16 in San Marino.
