There could be an extra test in the schedule, to be held directly after Silverstone. If the new Kymiring circuit in Finland is finished on time, the riders will head to Finland at the end of August to try the new circuit, and generate important data for Michelin.
The Spaniard fractured his left scaphoid in a training accident while riding dirt track. Lorenzo underwent examinations in Italy and Spain, and is due to undergo surgery in Barcelona on Monday, with Dr.
Mir set to operate. The Mission Winnow Ducati team, as it is now called, consisting of Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci were presented to the world on stage in Switzerland, in a new livery with a lot more red and a lot less white in it compared to previous years, in a throwback to the color scheme.
Like that color scheme, there is a link to Philip Morris once again, though this time, indirectly. But much more on that later. In a tightly-scripted presentation, Ducati managed to let slip just enough information to make the presentation interesting, without giving too much away.
But what they did let slip was enough to allow observers to read between the lines for an insight into the factory. This was in stark contrast to the combative atmosphere which prevailed when Ducati had both Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo aiming to win the championship.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks, all of the MotoGP teams and factories will present their color schemes and riders at a series of events.
Ducati is the first to present its plans, as is the tradition. Whether that will also translate to iQOS branding on the fairings remain to be seen: It will be streamed live on the MotoGP.
It will be the first time that Lorenzo will be able to speak freely and publicly about his switch to Honda, though he is more likely to speak openly to journalists afterwards, rather than during the public presentation.
The MotoGP riders are just two weeks into their shiny new contracts, but already, there is talk of what happens next. In Italy, there is a discussion of who gets the factory Ducati seat alongside Andrea Dovizioso in The Repsol Honda rider is still in the midst of rehabilitation after his shoulder surgery in December.
With the attention of the world turned to the Dakar rally, Spanish sports daily Marca, which also runs a radio program, called Marc Coma, former five-time Dakar winner and now head of KTM Spain , to talk about the rally currently going on in Peru.
Ducati has always been known for taking the path less traveled when it comes to their MotoGP bikes. An idea which was once common practice in racing motorcycles in the s and early s, but disappeared shortly afterward.
Why had Ducati reinstated the idea again? What were they trying to achieve? The Spaniard has suffered another broken collarbone, and will require surgery and a long recovery process before he can start testing again.
That, and a lack of blood flow to the bone, has left him with osteoporosis, and a weakened collarbone. Just how weakened is clear from the fact that Pedrosa managed to break the bone without any particular physical impact.
That endemic weakness means Pedrosa faces a long recovery process. He is to undergo treatment with stem cells to help promote bone growth and strengthen the bone, to prevent a recurrence.
The move is a response to the difficulties Aprilia has faced since making a full-time return to MotoGP. Rivola will oversee the entire organization, covering all aspects of racing.
Romano Albesiano has been appointed Technical Director, and will oversee the engineering and technical side of the MotoGP project.
That is in itself mildly surprising: So it is a shame that the discussion the interview has generated has centered around two of the briefest subjects Puig mentioned: Which of those generated the most controversy depended on where in the world you were.
Rossi has been a great rider who he fully respected, Puig said. But, Puig said, "he is having a hard time accepting his moment has passed.
It may be December, and the world of motorcycle racing may be retreating into hibernation for a few weeks, but news does keep cropping up from time to time.
