The presentation of the Pramac Ducati team was held in Genoa, on board the flagship of the fleet MSC Fantasia Cruises,. Paolo Campinoti and his new riders, Loris Capirossi and Randy De Puniet, presented the new Ducati GP11 SAT, which will take part in the MotoGP World Championship 2011. The conference was attended by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Corse, and Federico Maccotta, Lombardy Area Manager of MSC Cruises. The riders of the Pramac Racing Team arrived at the port of Genoa riding two Ducati (Hypermotard and Monster) marked Pramac, with which they performed at the side of the vessel MSC Fantasia before boarding. Loris was wearing his new helmet, Excel model as last year but with some graphic variations: the flowers are at the base of the helmet and the stars with Italian flags, Monaco and the European Union. The number "65" is yellow and blends well with the greens, the glitter and colored streamers that run in a circle. Loris Capirossi at the conference said: " I spent five seasons with Ducati, to return three years later, it’s like coming back to my family. For me to run with the Pramac Racing Team means the certainty of being able to get good results. I have not reflected a moment when I was asked to return to Ducati. In a few days we will be back on track in better shape for the second session of testing at Sepang. We surely need to improve in some aspects but we were happy after the first winter test. For example, I found some difficulty in braking and the riding during corners, but the simple fact that we have improved our lap times constantly it means that we are on the right direction. Then with Randy on the team will be much easier. Between us there is great harmony. It 's the perfect mate to this adventure in Ducati. My story in MotoGP is not over yet. I think I can give so much more to this category, regardless of the new rules. "
