Ducati lead constructors for first time

This past Sunday saw a new high in Ducati's short MotoGP history, as they saw themselves at the top of the constructor's championship for the first time courtesy of Loris Capirossi's victory in Jerez.

Since their 2003 debut in the premier class, Borgo Panigale's brand have slowly progressed to compete with the big Japanese factories.

In 2006 it seems that the combination of the Desmosedici GP06, Bridgestone tyres and the experience of riders Loris Capirossi and Sete Gibernau will be a consistent and successful one, having already dominated the final preseason tests and earning the front two places on the grid in Jerez.

Despite Gibernau's electronic problems with his bike, Capirossi's skilful ride brought Ducati their fourth victory in MotoGP, one of 23 podiums.
