Audi money and engineering might turn the ship. But if that's gonna happen in -13, so that we can really see all Ducatis going much better on track against the RCV & M1, then it really is very quick success for them. With 3 out of 4 of their riders being new to the bike and all. And for at least two years, they've been so far behind, that I dunno if you can call that project a 'ship'... more like a friggin' submarine! So the task is really huge.
Of course it's possible, too, that some of those new riders riding style will suit the bike. But there's already a long list of riders, who have tried, but had to admit, that that's not the case.
