'... faith that our partners, sponsors and fans have never failed to demonstrate.'

Actually I don't think many have had much faith in Ducati's GP efforts lately (the last 3+ years). Particularly the fans.

I'm not sure if Dovi is brave or just very desperate for a factory ride? But like "Bill Board" above says, good luck Dovi, and we both mean it. It would be great to see another rider able to be competitive on the Ducati again so that the MotoGP is not just about Yamaha and Honda :)

Dovi I sincerely hope that you score as many podiums this year as possible, because you won't get a sniff of one in 2013/14, that bike isn't up to it and unless Audi really really pour some money into it, its unlikely to be anytime soon

Dovi is NOT the right rider for the Ducati. He will fail like all the others. Iannone from Moto2 would be a better choice.
The Ducati needs an agressive rider to beat it into submission. Like Stoner ( I can't believe I'm writing this, as I'm not a Stoner fan).
All the previous racers with a finesse style have failed to tame the beast.
I wish him luck.

Hell yeah dovi now get that ducati on the podium and be the first ever to finish on the podium with 3 different manufacturers in as many years. If there's anyone who can do it, its you.
