Andrea Dovizioso confident he can make Ducati competitive

Andrea Dovizioso has backed himself to succeed where fellow Italian’s Valentino Rossi and Marco Melandri failed by making Ducati’s factory Desmosedici contender a consistent front-runner in MotoGP. Dovizioso made his first official appearance as a factory Ducati rider at the Bologna factory’s annual team launch at the Madonna di Campiglio ski resort in Italy this morning.

"Dovizioso didn’t go into specific details about what he felt were the areas Ducati needed to improve on its GP13 machine."

Handing Rossi his P45 perhaps?..

Can't really fault what he says or his attitude towards what needs to be done.

No silly claims of podiums by the 6th race or wins by mid season. Just a pragmatic view that there is a problem to be overcome and it will take a lot of effort and time to overcome it.

I hope they make it work. Especially if it was with the CF frame...

So you saying Wosi

that you expect Dovi to perform worse than Rossi on the D16? I presume you base this on the fact Rossi only out qualified RdeP by 0.006 of a second at Philip Island last year - two seconds behind Stoner on a short little 1 min 30 sec lap. You must remember old bean Ducati have riders with talent and desire this year.

If Dovi finishes with more points than Rossi did last year, I'll eat your Dani Pedrosa hat.

Not at all Wosi

I've a head stuffed full of the stuff. You confuse me for a merchandise loving consumer (besides which Dani's stuff is dull shite). But I'm sure you've got a drawer full of manky unpalatable yellow hats to feast upon.
