Does Ducati have Another Ace Up Its Sleeve For The San Marino Grand Prix?
After the widely known Stegosaurus update spread throughout all Ducati riders, the Italian manufacturer might have another ace up its sleeve – thanks to Michele Pirro.
Like many times before, Ducati mastermind Gigi Dall’Igna’s latest development hit the ground running. The so-called Stegosaurus update was quickly seen on almost all Ducatis in the MotoGP field.
Giving more stability for the rear under braking the rear wings could be the first step to further aerodynamical development in MotoGP.
Serial winner Francesco Bagnaia also adopted the new wings and was able to secure his fifth win of the season at the Austrian Grand Prix.

However, although being successful in Austria, Bagnaia is still trailing Fabio Quartararo in the championship. But, there is a new spark of hope and it’s coming form Ducati test rider Michele Pirro.
The Italian was once again out on his Desmosedici GP22 to test several modifications to the electronics and chassis around the Misano World Circuit.
Sources close to testing team report the private testing session was successful. Now, it is just a question of whether the found improvement can already be implemented for the upcoming San Marino Grand Prix in early September.
