Even after all of the admonishing about Ducati's plans, it remains a true statement that they are still considering 'the open road' in 2014. Racing boss Gigi Dall'Igna says it's still under consideration.

Marlboro Ducati has yet to decide whether they will declare their factory MotoGP entries as "factory" or "open" for 2014.

The deadline for teams to declare themselves as "open" is February 28.

In recent interviews, Ducati race boss Gigi Dall'Igna has gone to great lengths to explain that the open concept, which comes with a larger engine allotment, increased freedom to test and more fuel, but fairly crude electronics, is a valid choice for Ducati and not just for Yonny Hernandez. That said, Ducati MotoGP factory riders Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso are considered as entrants in the "factory" classification of MotoGP.
