The Ducati Test Team finished a three-day test today at Spain's Circuito
de Jerez. As usual, the activities were led by Filippo Preziosi, who
followed the work schedule carried out by official test rider Franco
Thanks to the mild and favorable weather conditions,
Ducati engineers were able to perform tests on setup and electronics,
and to gather important information.
Battaini was also joined by
the two riders from Ducati's satellite teams, Cardion AB MotoRacing's
Karel Abraham and Pramac Racing's Hector Barbera. Each spent a day
alternating with the Italian aboard the GP12 SAT, the former riding on
Tuesday, February 21, and the latter participating today.
were lucky because we had three days with very good weather conditions,"
Filippo Preziosi said, "and that enabled us to do quite a bit of work.
With Franco (Battaini), we continued with the test program that was
planned for the Test Team over the winter, trying some aspects of the
electronics that we'll keep working on with the factory riders at
Sepang. I think we found out some interesting things that we'll soon
confirm with Vale and Nicky in Malaysia, where we'll also continue
working with the bike's setup. Because we had the track available here
at Jerez, we also offered our satellite-team riders the opportunity to
lap and to work on their respective setups."
