It's Official! Dovi signs for 2 more years with Ducati!!

Dovi confirmed early this morning on IG that he will be staying for an additional 2 years! Bravo Dovi. I hope the contract is equal to your amazing efforts and results.
Thanks from gramps, Thamer, Mutt1979 and 4 others

I Ride: V4S and Ninja 400. Dichotomy.
I don't think there was much doubt that would happen, Ducati was not going to let Dovi go, and he's old enough that he's not a "hot commodity", it's a good fit for him to stay and keep kicking ass.

Ducati just had to realize he wasn't going to race for beer and cigarette money.

I think if Ducati wants to win, he needs a real teammate. Get someone who can't disrupt MM while Dovi saves tires, someone who can really play second fiddle. JL is not it.

Jorge is dead weight and his ego isn't helping the team.

While Dovi wants to win Jorge's only goal seems to be to compete with his team 'mate' and has forgotten all else.

Really that's all he's capable of on the Ducati.

Dovi wants pertuci. Miller would be to much of a challenge. Ducati will win after MM BREAKS THE RECORD and then signs with Ducati. Then and only then will Ducati have a faster rider then their test rider.

Petrucci 27 yrs old
Miller 22yrs old
Plus you have the Aussie connection with Stoner.
It has to be Jack, he has even tried to stop falling off.
