Ducati Team Information:

Ducati's ambitious two-year project with Valentino Rossi came to a disappointing close at the end of 2012, with riders, crews and engineers struggling to turn the Desmosedici into a regular front-runner. After the company takeover by the Audi group, a number of management changes have taken place and Italian rider Andrea Dovizioso is re-joined for 2014 by former Tech 3 teammate Cal Crutchlow on board the famous red bike. Both riders will hope that the German company's influence and the arrival of talented engineer Gigi Dall’Igna can make a difference to results.
