    Maybe Ducati can seize a chance to get a little jump on Honda here. Both of them recovering from surgery means not being quite up to speed at season beginnings.


    This from Motomatters as well, that Duke doesn't seem to lack horsepower either....

    The Mission Winnow thing is taking the piss. Aside from being blatantly stupid and irritatingly vague, it's a pretty clear violation of EU rules on tobacco advertising. Pushing their "safer" vaping system that still uses tobacco thinly veiled as an innovation thinktank is offensive to anyone with a brain. I don't mean offensive that it's smoking related. Want to pay someone a fortune to kill you slowly? Go for it. I mean offensive as the are treating everyone as if they are retarded and don't see what Phillip Morris are doing.

    I dunno, I kinda think that when the branding was first rolled out no-one had any idea who the fuck MW were, so it's hard to say they are advertising cigarettes/tobacco.

    Is it any different to the way alcohol advertising is handled in Australia? I mean Coca Cola Amatil are free to advertise during and/or sponsor childrens shows/events......but they also sell a large range of alcohol (https://www.ccamatil.com/en/our-busi...nds/our-brands and it's illegal to advertise alcohol to children.

    It's a slippery slope to start banning advertisers and companies/subsidiaries rather than products as many companies have a huge number of brands/products under their umbrella.

    Yeah it's been going on for years, in F1 they used to change West tobacco branding to East on the back of the cars (McLaren I think) and Benson & Hedges would block out letters to become Be on edge Others would keep the same paint scheme but cover up the name
