MCN: Valentino Rossi cautious on aluminium chassis switch

Valentino Rossi played down the prospect of Ducati switching from its carbon fibre monocoque frame to an aluminium frame as a solution to the bike’s front end problems.

When approached by MCN last weekend at Laguna Seca, the 32-year-old said: “Sincerely I don’t know because I’m a rider and I don’t have the answer. I hope in Ducati somebody has one answer.” Though fellow Italian Capirossi reports that Rossi has pressured Ducati to make the switch.
