THREE-DAY SESSION AT MUGELLO CONCLUDES FOR DUCATI MOTOGP TEST TEAM

The third and final day of testing for Vittoriano Guareschi and Sete Gibernau concluded today at Mugello, with the Spaniard taking advantage of good weather conditions to clock up 50 laps and record a best time of 1'51.7.

After two days of changeable weather today the sun finally stayed out and allowed the pair to get through the entire programme of work they had scheduled for the GP9.

"I want to say thanks to Sete, who over the past two days has helped us get through a huge amount of work on the GP9 alongside the irreplaceable Vitto", declared Filippo Preziosi. "Despite a long period of inactivity (Sete had not ridden a race bike since October 2006) he's adapted quickly to the unusual role of test rider and put himself through a lot of the toil that we usually reserve for Vitto! Now we'll sit down with Sete and evaluate whether there will be another opportunity to test together."

"This has been a really wonderful gift from Ducati!" added Gibernau "It has been a real pleasure to get back on a MotoGP bike and over the past couple of days I've had first hand experience of what a tough job Vitto has and realised just how good he is at it. Now I want to go home and reflect on how I feel about things. Then, together with Ducati, we'll see if want to arrange another test."
