EXCLUSIVE! to access a huge global audience ADVeRTISe in gPWeeK New chassis, new engine after Round Three VALENTINO Rossi and team-mate Nicky Hayden will have to wait for only two more races before “radical changes” to the Desmosedici GP11 will be ready for testing. This was the promise issued by Ducati’s famed design chief Filippo Preziosi, speaking on T V in Italy, where the superstar’s presence at Ducati and his disappointing sixth place at Qatar have sparked a media frenzy. Interviewed by TV channel Sportmediaset, Preziosi spoke of “radical changes” to the whole package, as the relatively small company strives to justify signing the world’s greatest rider. Some changes will be visible, others not noticeable from the outside, “though just as important”. In the latter category, a reworked carbon-fibre chassis with revised stiffness ratios and weight distribution, as well as engine modifications – possibly including revised firing intervals – aimed at making the power less aggressive. Ducati Corse engineering head Preziosi said that the factory race department would use the almost month-long break after next weekend’s Jerez race, caused by the postponement of the Japanese GP, to prepare a raft of changes, based on requests already formulated by Rossi and noted crew chief Jerry Burgess. Parts would be ready for trials at the one-day test after the Portuguese GP on May 1. By that time, Rossi hopes that his slow-to-heal shoulder injury will be less of a factor, allowing him to ride the Ducati without compromise. Ducati promises "radical changes" for Rossi
