Why Ducati must stick with Petrucci
By:
Jun 13, 2019, 1:41 PM

Ducati promoted Danilo Petrucci as both a stopgap and a gamble when it split with Jorge Lorenzo. As the team reaches its decision time for 2020, there is no other logical choice than to stick with its newest race winner.

Danilo Petrucci's first win at Mugello - and the fact Ducati made it a condition of a new deal - is just one of the reasons that mean the Italian factory is obliged to back him again in 2020.

It was around this time last year that Ducati announced that Petrucci would be taking the place of three-time MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo in its works line-up on a one-year contract for 2019.
