Why Ducati shouldn’t replace Dovizioso with Lorenzo

By:

Immediately after the Andrea Dovizioso-Ducati divorce was confirmed, Jorge Lorenzo was linked with a return to the Italian manufacturer. But as Ducati bosses assess life without its stalwart Italian rider, a younger and hungrier alternative waits in the wings…

Andrea Dovizioso's departure from Ducati at the end of the 2020 MotoGP season was confirmed on Saturday in an unexpected announcement, made just a day after the Italian marque said a decision was to be taken after this week's Styrian Grand Prix. And 24 hours after quitting Ducati, Dovizioso won the marque's 50th premier class race at the Red Bull Ring.

As the champagne dries, thoughts have turned to the next task at hand for Ducati – deciding who it brings in to replace its talisman of eight years. Almost immediately after Dovizioso's manager Simone Battistella made the declaration on Italian television that his rider would not be renewing for 2021, Ducati was bombarded with questions on who could fill Dovizioso's shoes.
