Ducati contradicts Lorenzo

"Lorenzo told things according to his vision," says a Davide Tardozzi who remarks that the Borgo Panigale factory decided its strategy long ago.


"We started the negotiations, but as the time to sign approached, more weight gained those things that I had to give up again. After many days of doubts, I decided that, feeling very sorry, I had to say no to Gigi Dall ' Igna ". This was the version that Jorge Lorenzo gave this Wednesday in an interview in 'Motosport' to detail the reasons that led him to reject the proposal that Ducati transferred to him to return to the MotoGP World Championship in 2021.

A statements that have not sat at all well within the Borgo Panigale factory. Davide Tardozzi not only affirms in 'Sky Sports' that the Italian brand some time ago decided the strategy that it wanted to adopt in the short and medium term in the queen class, but also remarks that Lorenzo's return to the Emilia-Romagna region was never on the table.

"Lorenzo told things according to his vision. Gigi called him to wish him a good birthday, they exchanged a few words and then expressed his wish that he is well where he is. Except for a few jokes with Gigi and Pirro, Ducati had already decided their strategy ago For some time. We are doing an operation that I think you will understand later. Ducati makes decisions but not without first drawing up a strategy. Ducati knows that winning with an Italian motorcycle and an Italian rider is different, "says Tardozzi.

It should be remembered that last week we already reported in AS that the only question that remains to be resolved in northern Italy is deciding who will accompany Jack Miller in the official team, with Francesco Bagnaia and Johann Zarco fighting for that position, since in the GP of San Marino 2020 Enea Bastianini made his signing for Esponsarama Racing official.
