Ducati City in 2016, the hugely powerful red bikes were almost unstoppable at the Red Bull Ring. Essentially three straights linked by a series of slow corners, it suits them down to a tee by playing to their strengths and negating their mid-corner turning problem. And even if they might not be quite as dominant thanks to losing their aerodynamic wings, with the stunning start he’s made to 2017 so far it’s hard to bet against Andrea Dovizioso. However, after a slow start, Jorge Lorenzo could be wellplaced to bag his first Ducati win.
