Ducati is the first MotoGP team to unveil their livery for the next season in a year that it is going to be really important for the Italian crew who surely wants to improve the results of the past championship in terms of podiums and victories. Indeed, Andrea Dovizioso ended once again as runner up in the world standings but managed to win only 2 races, while Danilo Petrucci found a remarkable win in Italy but his results were not so great from that moment.
The main goal is to fight for the title and try to snatch the championship from Marquez's hands but it is not going to be easy considering how strong the Spaniard was in 2019. Ducati, Dovizioso and Petrucci, alongside test rider Michele Pirro will give everything as always, but there is another important thread on the line: contracts renew. Danilo's one is about to end at the end of the season and has to make good result to be confirmed. Also Andrea's one will expire this season but his situation is different by the way in which the relationship with Ducati is not good as everyone might think.
Anyway, the new bike has of course the dominant red as main color and the livery did not change too much compared to the previous one, even if we can see some little changes on the Ducati, but the main hopes are that will be the ending results to change.
Andrea Dovizioso expressed his thoughts: “I cannot wait to start, we have some things to try, we are focused on our goals”. Then was Danilo Petrucci's turn: “I did not have too many expectations for 2019, maybe I hoped to be a little faster, but I was motivated and I did some mistakes. I learned from it, I want to improve the results I got in 2019”. Also Michele Pirro has something to say: “2020 bike is an evolution in some areas, the engineers worked a lot. I am proud to be part of this family!”
Paolo Ciabatti, Davide Tardozzi talked as well: “Expectations are high, the fans are amazing and we want to get good results also for them. It will be a tough challenge, but we have a good bike and everyone is working in the right way. The atmosphere is amazing, crucial to get great results”. Claudio Domenicali opened the evening: “The new season is going to be tough, there are a lot of teams fast and competitive. We worked on the chassis, the engine, the aerodynamics: we want to improve to keep our level high”.
