Ducati intervened in the dispute between Dovizioso and Petrucci, when the sporting director Paolo Ciabatti addressed the microphones of SKY TV to give a lucid analysis of the situation

« Andrea was upset I spoke to him right after, he didn’t expect Danilo, who was slower and couldn’t stay in front of him and give him a tow, rode behind him Andrea n never wanted any strategy I just believe that since all runners are selfish in certain situations Danilo was selfish in this situation But Danilo and Andrea have a special relationship I sure haven’t found out now that runners are selfish But maybe, knowing that your teammate is fighting for the world championship, a little more attention might be needed On the bike, at this speed, with adrenaline, maybe you don’t think about some things « 

« Danilo and Andrea are traveling together, tomorrow they will come back to Italy together, there is a connection They certainly see each other, talk to each other, they hang out a lot, but in my opinion a characteristic of the riders has emerged: Danilo selfishness has decided to take advantage of this situation, he had the tour of his life given the conditions in which we had arrived here, and unfortunately Andrea who was second became third because Miller also came and as we know is quick in the flight tour Do you want me to tell you I’m sorry? A lot I think Andrea had the pace to have a good race, I hope he can have a good start tomorrow because otherwise it will not be easy Andrea is not mad at Ducati, Ducati gives him all the support possible because we also want to win the championship Moreover: the world championship is the first of our objectives and we can only win it with Dovizioso this year And that is the situation « 

In the studio, there was a bit of back-and-forth between Mauro Sanchini, the voice of Sky Sport, and Ciabatti À Sanchini, who asked why Ducati hadn’t backed Dovizioso with a strategy, Ciabatti answered

« I think you talk like a fan a lot every now and then It’s not true that Andrea doesn’t have our support He didn’t want to be towed by anyone He just didn’t expect in the second fastest lap he had, Danilo was behind him taking a small advantage Danilo wasn’t faster, what were we going to send him to do? Andrea didn’t want to be towed by anyone, he wanted to go around alone If you think we should have forced him to be towed by Petrucci, I’m sorry but that wasn’t what the pilot wanted ”

« There are no team orders Andrea was upset, I spoke to him right after, he didn’t expect Danilo, who was slower and couldn’t stay in front for tow him, get behind him Andrea never wanted any strategy I just believe that since all riders are selfish in certain situations, Danilo was selfish in this situation ”

« The races are different, the dynamics are particular, it’s a matter of prediction And it’s not easy We have always said that our riders should not be shy, what happened between Dovi and Iannone in Argentina in 2016 must not happen again When it comes to the very last races, we will have to reason on the basis of the classification What we are asking now is not to hamper each other ”

“If we had finished first and second in Q1 we would have been phenomenal Instead we were first and third, but with another second Ducati, the Ducati not fighting for the title”
