Ducati head into this weekend's Austrian MotoGP at the Red Bull Ring with their eyes on a fourth win in four years.

The team has won every race since MotoGP returned to Austria in 2016 after a break of 18 years, with the country hosting a motorcycle Grand Prix event at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg - the last time being in 1997 (Mick Doohan won in a Honda), according to

The Bologna-based outfit has factory riders Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci keen to make it four in a row for Ducati in Austria but there's also Pramac Racing's Jack Miller who rides a Ducati. 

Dovizioso had went wheel-to-wheel with championship leader Marc Marquez in 2017 and with the latter in stupendous form we can only hope for a fantastic race on Sunday. 

Marquez currently leads Dovizoso by 63 points in the riders' standings.
