Dovizioso: Relations with Ducati are very bad

Author of the article: , published January 9, 2023.

Andrea Dovizioso has admitted that he parted ways with Ducati on very bad terms.

The Italian racer, who retired after last year's race in San Marino, experienced his greatest success with the team from Bologna, when he finished as world runner-up between 2017 and 2019.

He left the team after eight years together at the end of the 2020 corona season, when the relationship with team manager Gigi Dall'Igno deteriorated significantly.

If things had turned out a little differently, he might have been in the place of Francesco Bagnaje, who last year brought Ducati its first title since 2007.

"It's sad that my story with Ducati ended in this way," said Dovizioso in a recent interview.

"I am a person who tries to have a good relationship with everyone. In this case, unfortunately, that was not the case and the story ended sadly."

"I must emphasize that this is not a grudge against Ducati as a company, but against certain individuals within this company."

"Of course I regret certain things. Every racing driver has some regrets at the end of his career. Anyone who says no is lying."

"Some things I could have done differently, better. Nevertheless, I am satisfied with my career and life.”
