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...

Dovi said himself that he was slow to adapt to the Yam from the Honda in his first year. The Tech3 bike is not what you'd call an inferior machine, but if it was a works M1 He stil wouldn't be a champion, the time for that has gone, with the loss of the Honda ride. The Ducati will take him one way, further down the standings. I've got nothing against Dovi, he's a good rider, but he's not on the way up, he's on the way down.

Thats right Nostro - blame everything wrong in MotGp on Rossi - Give it a rest brother - Buddhism sees bigotry as emotional immaturity - tolerence is preferred over bigotry - you need to step up and open your mind.

I guess your'e worried that he'll trump VR's pitiful effort? That's the only reasonable conclusion.

Why all the fuss over Dovizioso - 1 win in 5 years and that was on a Honda.   He's a good top 5 racer nothing more nothing less.

There's no fuss re-Dovi. A solid racer doing a great job yet 'some' wish to ignore the fact. Oh well.

Dovi

Dovi is obviously a good rider , but give him a full factory Honda or Yamaha, and I doubt anyone would put much of a bet on him winning the title . His pan has flashed

If there was anything special about Dovi we would have seen it by now.  Best of the rest is the potential which he has already reached.   Quoting pay packets means nothing. Bautista finished 5th in the absence of talent beneath the aliens in this class.  Opposite views are not 'strange' just opposite views

Who could beat that trio in their prime? the man your slagging down Valentino Rossi 08 and 09 and stoner in 10 dispite injuries.

The Ducati wasnt up to the job, and thats Preziosi's fault, it held your favorite back for three years and has seriously dented Rossi's reputation . Fanboy bitching wont change that.

Dovi's a top rider just a notch below the aliens, if they cant get it moving in the right direction he'l do ok.

Clearly Audi and Ducati were not spoiled for choice    all the top guys were already booked so the only choice was the best of the rest    if you look at the alternatives  there weren't any.

You know that's not right. Audi wanted Rossi to stay, that's a fact, Dovi was all that was left, and probably the best out of the four that's going to be on the Duke next year, but that doesn't make him anything like a hope of ever winning a title for Ducati, he just ain't fast enough, it's a simple as that and one 125 championship to his name, that says it all, and that was 8 years ago, no I'm sorry but Dovi peaked a long time ago, so it's mid field now.
