Facts show in the middle of a slow Ducati bend (Red: slow). The Italian has been demanding improvements to the chassis for several seasons and it seems that the manufacturer based in Bologna has produced something. According to Dovizioso, what his team did was the right step.

Chassis 2020 Positive
Dovi added the most important thing was that they understood now. They have focused on increasing weakness in the middle of the corner (mid-corner).

The increase is still not as big as we would like but it is quite normal because the chassis difference is quite large. “
