Ben Spies backs new Ducati strategy

Ben Spies believes Ducati’s new strategy to give full factory machinery to its entire MotoGP line-up in 2013 will be crucial in helping the Italian manufacturer close the gap to Honda and Yamaha.

In a bid to develop the Desmosedici at a much faster rate and expand the amount of rider feedback, Spies, Andrea Iannone, Nicky Hayden and Andrea Dovizioso will have identical machinery at their disposal when the new 2013 campaign kicks off in Qatar on April 7.

Spies, who will ride for the Ignite Pramac Ducati squad, will make his Ducati debut in Sepang next week having not ridden since he suffered a serious shoulder injury when crashing out of last October’s Malaysian Grand Prix.

And he believes the different styles and experience Ducati has in its four-pronged attack in 2013 will help the Bologna factory bounce back from a bitterly disappointing two-year stint with Valentino Rossi.
