MotoGP – Ducati and Andrea Dovizioso, a divorce waiting with Jorge Lorenzo to step in?

Andrea Dovizioso has made some very interesting comments regarding his future with Ducati, not saying much, but saying just enough for us to guess where his head is at.

When responding to a question posed to him regarding his future and Tardozzi’s comments to DAZN stating that Dovizioso’s future will be decided after the two Austrian Grand Prix’s, Dovizioso was a man of very few words saying “No comment, it is not news, we know that already, it’s ok, it’s not my decision, we have to follow what they decide, so, no problem” with his body language shrugging off the question like it is nothing.

There are multiple riders in the line for the for Dovizioso’s seat including Johann Zarco, Francesco Bagnaia and most surprisingly, Jorge Lorenzo. Tardozzi confirmed that the decision for who rides for the team in 2021 will not be conditioned by sporting results and it is not just the last race that will be taken into account.

When speaking regarding Jorge Lorenzo, Tardozzi had one thing to say, “Jorge is an important rider for us. He won with us and we keep him in our hearts. We will see.”

Francesco Bagnaia also has a chance following a strong season start and his youth also being taken into account, Pramac boss Francesco Guidotti spoke to DAZN also about Bagnaia’s future and the potential for Bagnaia to step up, Guidotti said “we are waiting for Ducati, Ducati’s decision. On the one hand, we hope that Pecco will stay with us and on the other, it would be a double satisfaction to have our rider in the official team next year because it is part of our job, to train riders who can reach the official team. We will be 50% happy.”

You cannot forget Johann Zarco, the rider had a disaster of a season in 2019 but has come back in fine style taking pole position at Brno and third place.

It is all kicking off at Austria, who would you like to see on the factory Ducati the most next to Jack Miller?
