Gotta love a guy like Dovi. Him, Vale and Rins are the three guys of the current MotoGP lineup I’d like to meet in person.

Dovi when Iannone were teammates at Austin Ducati. They'd both made the podium for the race before COTA. They both smiled big when someone in the crowd shouted "congrats" on the podium finish.

Interesting that Dovi is so outspoken about this...

Interesting article...

Last year Andrea Dovizioso seemed a lot hungrier. I still think he’s a class act but this year he doesn’t seem to have much fight in him.

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

Hard to tell if he's not as hungry or if what he's saying is really true... that other OEMs have progressed faster than Ducati, and he's so frustrated public expression is the only way he can apply more pressure.

Either way, I don't think it's the right approach, and won't work.

Agreed and I think there’s probably some truth to his evaluation of the pace of progress.

However, last year we saw Rossi complain about his bike while it was Maverick Viñales who broke Yamaha’s streak of 25 losses and finish the year in 4th place so there’s something to be said for getting out there and getting after it.

Although there’s probably some truth to Dovi’s evaluation, I hope he doesn’t handle his disappointment using the same approach that Rossi did. I’d like to see him get more aggressive without losing his characteristic smoothness.

As much as these youngsters are paid, they can afford to be all about “public praise and private counsel”.

Sad to see Luca in that second picture.


Dovi sounds awesome, like maybe the relationship with the last teammate was not his fault.

Just because it doesn't make sense, doesn't mean somebody didn't decide to do it that way.
