Ducati threatens to claim the "dangerous" wings of the Honda

"The fact that Honda has questioned the technical director's choices raises the problem," says Gigi Dall'Igna.


The Court of Appeal of the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation) will issue a ruling before the 2019 Grand Prix of Argentina, but the controversy is over. Because Ducati has no intention of recalling the claim that Honda, Suzuki, KTM and Aprilia presented at the Qatar Grand Prix 2019 for the use of a rear spoiler under the keel hooked to the swingarm of the GP19. It's more. The Italians do not rule out counterattacking.

"I would say that I am still very surprised, above all, by the behavior of Honda which, apart from being one of the MotoGP players from the start, is one of the founding partners of MotoGP along with Ducati and Yamaha. Today, all disputes of a technical nature had been resolved either within the MSMA (Association of Builders) or by discussing with the technical director and always finding an answer to all the questions that each competitor put on the table. Honda has questioned the election of the technical director poses the problem of whether a potential claim against Honda for its wings that, honestly, we judge as dangerous, " says Gigi Dall'Igna.

The head of the brand of Borgo Panigale defends in 'Sky Italia' his thesis qualifying as mobile appendages the wings of the Honda RC213V of Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Márquez: "In addition to how they are made, because of the thinness of its base, could also be subject to important deformations, because of the load they sustain, and, therefore, may be considered mobile appendages. We have never taken it into consideration, but if any, in particular Honda , has discussed the operations of Danny Aldridge, this allows us to think of a possible claim against Honda in the next races ".
