They're already tested a conventional deltabox aluminium chassis on the GP12 at Jerez on Friday (the same sort used by Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki).

According to MCN, Rossi's lost all faith in the carbon fibre project, and Nicky Hayden says the GP11.1 has already reached the ceiling of its potential, even though he’s only raced the updated Desmo 3 times.

But he also said he didn’t think it was the material that was the cause of Ducati's persistent front-end issues.

“They’ve tested aluminium and I don’t think it is a matter of material. I think it is more stiffness and flex. You can make carbon softer or stiffer so I don’t think that's the situation. I tested a lot of aluminium swingarms and carbon fibre swingarms and you can get either one to do what you want it to do.”

From what i have heard, the GP12 was 2 seconds a lap slower round Jerez (I think) than the RC213V in a recent test. Not sure how true that is, but if it is, looks like next year isn't going to be any better.
