Thus, there was speculation that the Ducati began to put pressure on Dorna to schedule this test (winter) could be extended again so that Rossi could cut the gap with its rivals from Repsol Honda, Casey Stoner, as well as former teammate at Yamaha, Jorge Lorenzo.
However, about it Prezioso said, "Other companies have requested to reduce the test only for Valentino. We do not think that the important point is the number of days. The important point is to interpret the right information from our riders, the proper design, and test it properly its parts, and the last thing is to have the right drivers, and we have it.
"They know how dangerous he is because the lion was still there in the cage. When we opened the cage, then of course be very dangerous."
