Ducati has debuted its new-look aero fairing during the second day of MotoGP testing at Losail.
Both Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso have tested the design, finishing eighth and 13th quickest.
Similar in appearance to a whale shark, the new fairing is Ducati’s attempt to replicate its wing aero package in a design which complies with the new regulations.
Speaking after the second day of testing, Dovizioso said. “In the evening I did a couple of exits with the new fairing, and in my opinion our engineers have done a great job because it wasn’t easy to create a certain aerodynamic downforce without using the winglets.
“Now we are weighing up the pros and cons of the design before we take a decision and also work out the tracks where this solution can give the biggest advantages.”
