Fabrizio: This shows we are united!

Fabrizio plays down rumours of problems at Ducati as he goes third on the grid at Monza.
Michel Fabrizio says his grid result is the best answer to the 'rumours' that there is a crisis within the Ducati Xerox team, the Italian securing a spot on the front row at Monza.

The factory Ducati team, the most successful operation in WSBK history, has struggled for form in recent rounds, with Fabrizio himself failing to finish a race inside the top ten since the Phillip Island season opener.

With many attributing the dip in form to the loss of team manager Davide Tardozzi, who has been replaced by Ernesto Marinelli, Fabrizio was determined to come out fighting for his and team's home event.

Although not quite the pole position he had set his sights on, Fabrizio was delighted to be back on the front row and is confident he can challenge for a repeat of the memorable win he achieved twelve months ago.

“Today's result is the best response to the gossip that was circulating in the paddock yesterday. Within the team we are working well together, are united, and together will be protagonists once more. I'm of course very happy with today's results.

“We needed to get back on track with a result like this, after three rounds in which I've not really been present, at least not at the front where I think the factory riders should be!

“I'm also pleased that, after successful tests at Misano last week, we are doing well – so far – in front of the Italian crowd. It's the first of the “home” races and so of course Ducati and myself would love to take two great race results here.”
