Andrea Dovizioso confirmed with Ducati for 2017 and 2018

Ducati have announced they have reached an agreement with Andrea Dovizioso for 2017 and 2018.

The MotoGP™ rider from Romagna, who started with Ducati in 2013, will spend the next two season as the teammate to Jorge Lorenzo in the Ducati Team riding the Desmosedici.

Andrea Dovizioso: “I’m very pleased to have reached this agreement with Ducati and to be able to continue the adventure we began in 2013. Over the years we worked hard and have managed to bring the Desmosedici to a great level of competitiveness and therefore I am convinced that soon we will get all the rewards we deserve.”

Luigi Dall’Igna: “It is never easy to make a decision like this, especially when you have two great riders like the Andreas. We are very pleased that Dovizioso has agreed to stay with us for the next two years and together with him we can continue the successful work we started four years ago to achieve the ambitious goals we set. Sorry to Andrea Iannone, who at the end of the season will no longer be with us. Andrea has done important work over the years and has contributed significantly to the development of the Ducati Desmosedici GP. For this we wish to thank him and we will do our utmost with him in the next races to get the best results possible.”
