Pramac Ducati squad unveils 15th anniversary MotoGP livery

Video messages from former riders Max Biaggi and Loris Capirossi played during the launch event in Italy to mark the milestone.

An updated livery includes pointers to Pramac's new deal with the Russian superbike squad Yakhnich Motorsport and the Russian Motorcycle Federation.

The team claimed its first podium since 2008 with Danilo Petrucci last year in the British Grand Prix, while new recruit Scott Redding also visited the podium on a Marc VDS Honda, at San Marino.

Redding says life with Pramac has started well, and that he is looking to finish in the "top six in the championship and fight for some podiums".

"I got a fantastic feeling riding the moto during the first round of tests at Valencia," the 23-year-old added.

"I immediately felt comfortable on the Ducati and it was a great sensation.

"I have to say that when I entered the box and met my new team in Valencia, the atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming.

"During the tests, my conversations with [crew chief] Giacomo Guidotti and the crew went perfectly, we immediately clicked. And then, as I said, the bike is insane.

"The weather wasn't excellent in Valencia, but the main goal was to work. And, in fact, at Jerez we did an amazing job."
