Video: Ducati’s controversial new MotoGP part explained

Ducati kicked off the 2019 MotoGP season with a thrilling Qatar Grand Prix victory, but a protest over a new addition to its bike clouded its night.

Our technical expert Jake Boxall-Legge joins Glenn Freeman to explain what the new part is, how it works, why it has been declared legal, and what that could mean for the other manufacturers who don’t have a similar design yet.
