Ducati: Essential to keep Andrea Dovizioso in 2015

Ducati boss Gigi Dall’Igna reckons it is essential to keep Andrea Dovizioso on a Desmosedici machine in 2015. The Bologna factory is facing stiff competition from Suzuki for the experienced Italian’s signature. Suzuki is eager to get the former 125GP world champion to lead its premier class return next year and his departure would be a hammer blow to Ducati’s bid to...

Screw that Gigi

That's not what the Ducatisti want. Ditch the aloominum, smother her in carbon fibre and stick someone young and firm on it.

Ooooh I'm getting all horny just thinking about it. How about you Eddy, Bootlicker? Maybe give her an extra brake lever too, that's different. Oh man, I need to go somewhere private....

Got to agree JW

 Cal could be going else where. Suzuki? Forward? WSBK?

I can see

Cal and Iannone doing a straight swap to be honest, the fans will be pleased with two quick Italians on the Ducati. I can't see Dovi leaving now, not when he has put up with all the problems the Duke has had and it is looking like they have a real shot at becoming competitve again. Perhaps Ducati will be the big winners in 2016 with the massive rules shake up? It has happened before, could it happen again?


I really hope Suzuki get some good solid riders on board, i want them to do well so badly!

I cant think of any rider better than Dovi for the job Ducati have for him , a Lorenzo or a Pedrosa would do little but moan at what they have , Dovi is a grafter , if it means accepting a 1:44 when the the Hondas and Yamahas are doing 1:43 He will push but not too much to end up upside down in a ditch unlike others we could mention cough Crutchlow cough .I Think a bonus for Iannone of being given full factory status is called for and a shot at  MotoGP for Folger next season :)

Good action shot

He always looks smooth, neat and tidy on a bike does Dovi. But this still perfectly captures just how physical a MotoGP must be on board. Exiting a right hander, fighting the wheelie, body on the move to the other side of the bike and wheel cocked with countersteer for the impending left.

Good call Richard. Do VW want a German under their Italian colours? Would you plumb for likely to be unemployed Bradl or a rising star like Folger?

Dovi isn't going anywhere

He won't kill the goose that laid the golden egg  and  besides which he wants to be the Italian rider/bike combination that brings Ducati back up to the top table ... think what an accolade that would be.

He is still smarting from the piss-poor treatment he got from HRC and then Yamaha and on a competitive bike he is better than most.

Nothing would please Mr. Ordinary more than getting the Ducati winning.  There is no chance in Suzuki getting up to speed  in the next 3 years.

Cal will probably be able to finish his 2 year contract (maybe with Pramac) after all Ducati were willing to stand by the crash-prone Spies when he wasn't even riding.

A match made in heaven

Dovi & Ducati have resigned themselves to never winning anything at all. Get some new blood in.
