Ducati Optimist on Sachsenring Germany

Ducati believe that they will good perform at the Sachsenring despite the circuit layout not playing to the strengths of their bike

Team boss Livio Suppo said: "The Sachsenring is quite a strange circuit, quite tight in places with no big straights, but we have always gone quite well there.

"We go into this race feeling fairly confident of a good result, and during this period of the season there are several circuits that suit our package, so that is a positive for us."

Loris Capirossi believes that the track will be easier on this year's 800cc machines, in comparison to the 990cc bikes that were raced until this year.

"We have been making some improvements to the bike in recent races, and I think the track will be more fun on the 800 than it was on the 990," he said

"The new bikes are a bit more nimble, so they are a bit faster into the corners and through the corners."

World championship leader Casey Stoner believes that Ducati have been strong at every circuit so far this season, so he feels that the team can approach the race as they have all season.

"Every race we are still learning about the set-up of the bike, especially when we go to different types of circuit," he said.

"The Ducati and the Bridgestones have been working well at pretty much every circuit, so when we get to Germany we'll just concentrate and keep doing what we've been doing."
