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.
