Filippo Preziosi optimistic for Ducati’s MotoGP future

Ousted Ducati MotoGP boss Filippo Preziosi says he is optimistic that the Bologna factory is destined for a successful future. The Italian will no longer serve as Ducati Corse’s General and Technical Manager from January, 2013 after Ducati owners Audi implemented a major management restructure today (Tuesday). Preziosi will be replaced by former BMW World Superbike boss Bernhard Gobmeier, who will take...

Not through a lack of commitment on Preziosi's part though Rev

Just a shame Rossi's underperformance has made Prezi a casualty - although I suspect he'll still be playing a significant hand with the evolution of the Desmocedici engine.

This Del Torchio bloke strikes me as very knee jerk in his decision making.

The knee jerk was hiring Rossi

Rev

Ducati moved forward the moment VR left them and Dovi signed. I'm looking forward to him doing a job on the thing. And no, that's not blowing smoke up his arse but as his record shows, he is one steady rider. He'll beat VR next year in the Championship imo.

No chance

Dovi's history imo, he's gone from Works Honda, with no championship, to a top satellite M1, and now slips further down the field on the Ducati.

'Works Honda with no Championship'.

................. competing against Stoner, Dani and JLo. Would you have backed him? How many have beaten this trio in their prime? No-one. Dovi finished 4th this season i.e. the best of the rest. He now has the full support of a fantastically huge corporation and no point to prove to anyone. He'll do well.

UNDERPERFORMING

Dont see how you guys can say Rossi underperformed. He beat his team mate two seasons running and Hayden is no mug being  an ex world champion. So rather than always blaming Rossi it possibly could have been the bike that under performed

OOooh..frames & swinging arms. What a treat.

Exactly how many years would this little lot take him to mackle up without a German bonfire up his arse?

If it wasn't for Rossi, this schmuck would still be talking about CF subframes, repair bills and skip hire!

Prezel is toast..don't forget your coat.

PC I'm not

saying he's a bad rider, he's going downhill, Honda dropped him after a long contract before Stoner was an obstacle, they could see no more future in him. He went to the M1, slow to adapt, he's been a top 5 or 6 rider but he's not championship material, now he's on a downhill slide on that Ducati, do you think they're going to turn that around for next year!!!!! so he will be a midfield runner at best.

Corn

Dovi is in his prime. The fact that others are quicker in their respective prime is called 'life'. I'm not sure why you've said in the past, along with many, that the Honda is the best bike blah blah but on the other hand completely disregard Dovi's 4th in the standings on an inferior satellite machine to the Yamaha factory bikes which are equally inferior to the Hondas in your world?!. Make your mind up.
