Andrea Dovizioso faces the last two races in MotoGP, at least for now. The Italian pilot announced that he will not continue in 2021 in Ducati and that he will take a sabbatical year to be able to return with more strength. ‘Dovi’ still has a mathematical chance of obtaining the title, but that seems impossible, in his own words.
The Italian rider confirmed this Tuesday that during the year 2021 he will get off the motorcycle, as he wants to integrate other categories as a way to relax. One of the great passions of ‘Dovi’ is Motocross, which is usually a training that the pilots of the world championship do regularly. On the other hand, he confirmed that he will not be a test pilot for any structure.
Dovizioso assured this Wednesday in an interview with the media GPOne, that the MotoGP title is a very difficult task. The leader of the championship, Joan Mir he is very strong and has the chance to be champion this weekend. In addition, during the Grand Prix of Europe, he had a very bad performance, so he will face this Sunday’s test with few chances.
Andrea Dovizioso said that the results obtained in the European Grand Prix were not what they were looking for before arriving. “The result of the first Valencia GP was certainly not in line with our expectations, but last week we understood some important aspects and collected some interesting information about it,” he commented.
To close, the Italian believes that his chances of being champion are no longer at stake. “If we have a stable weather over the weekend, we can face the GP with optimism. Although the title is almost impossible, we will fight to the end. It would be good to be able to close the world championship at least in second or third position “, concluded ‘Dovi’
