GP Week : Issue 206
MOTOGP >>> nEWs REd, REd, REady Ducati Corse will roll into 2015 with an all-new bike but the same riders, after Andrea Dovizioso announced over the weekend that he was staying with the team for the next two seasons. Dovizioso announced a contract extension during the ‘World Ducati Week’ event at Misano on saturday, while teammate Cal Crutchlow vigorously denied suggestions that he was seeking an early release from his current two-year deal. “We’ve reached an agreement and this is because it’s an interesting project which is beginning to bear fruit with the arrival of [Ducati’s new racing chief Gigi] Dall’Igna,” said Dovizioso. “We’ve had two podiums already this season and we are fourth in the world championship. “The current situation is really exciting, especially with the plans for 2015 in mind.” The announcements refute suggestions that the team was looking to replace one of its riders with Andrea Iannone, who has regularly upstaged his factory counterparts this season on his Pramac entry. According to reports, Ducati’s GP15 will not share any components with this year’s machine, and will have a new from the ground up V4 engine, seamless transmission and revised frame and suspension. The team has not won a Grand Prix since Casey stoner’s win at Phillip Island in 2010. 17 GPWEEK.com // 17 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
