Marl­boro Du­cati

Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview - Des­mosedici

2007 was the first year that Du­cati gave the Ja­panese red faces – be­cause no-one ex­pected the Des­mosedici to be so much faster than any­thing that Honda or Yamaha could throw at it! No-one ex­pected the young Aussie they’d signed (who had yet to win a Grand Prix!) to romp to ti­tle vic­tory – but that’s ex­actly what Casey Stoner did on the bike. Re­turn­ing to his child­hood stomp­ing ground at Don­ing­ton, he made it his fifth win out of the sea­son’s first eight races.

Stoner and Du­cati changed the Mo­togp game
