2017 Ducati MotoGP Team: Lorenzo, Dovizioso… And Stoner
Just a few days ago, Gigi Dall’Igna had declared his intention to increase the involvement of Stoner in the team work. Even Jorge Lorenzo shares this position. Last weekend, Jorge has indeed confirmed that he has already reached a good understanding with the Australian about the work to be carried out in Ducati. Also, he hopes to see grow their collaboration during the coming season.
Jorge Lorenzo: “I believe he’s already convinced about what to do“
“The relationship with Casey is very good. He’s a very smart guy. Very caring. Even, he gives good advices. Despite he hasn’t run for many years, Casey is still able to stand on a circuit and go faster than all the other riders. It would be very interesting to have him always in our box. We haven’t discussed it, but we will do it soon. One of the biggest problems in this sense is that he is very happy in Australia. But to help me, he should move to Italy. I believe he’s already convinced about what to do. So, we’ll see if in the end he will find an agreement with Ducati.” said Jorge Lorenzo, the new star of 2017 Ducati MotoGP Team.
