Jack Miller Signed To Factory Ducati MotoGP RideBy signing the 25-year-old from Townsville, Australia, the Italian factory bets once again on an Australian talent, continuing a successful tradition with three-time SBK world champion Troy Bayliss, who brought the Desmosedici to its debut in 2003, and Casey Stoner, who won the MotoGP title in 2007.
The future of Andrea Dovizioso in the MotoGP World Championship remains unclear beyond the current season. "At the moment I don't know my future. I know exactly what I want," says Dovizioso, referring to the stalled contract negotiations with Ducati.
Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi, who once had two unsuccessful years at Ducati, can easily empathize with Dovizioso's situation. "The relationship between Ducati and the drivers is sometimes difficult. When I drove there in 2011 and 2012, it wasn't easy."

"The most important thing will be that I can fix my weakness", the Ducati driver alludes to the new Michelin tires for 2020 and specifies: "I have a hard time braking into the corners.

The result on Sunday and the then new World Cup stand will also be an important component in relation to Dovizioso's future. The Ducati driver is well aware of this: "The upcoming races will be important for us because they are tracks that we hope should suit us. The results of course always have an influence on how things continue."
Directly after Brno, there are two races in Spielberg (Austria), where Dovizioso was victorious with the Ducati in 2017 and 2019. In both cases, he won a photo finish against Honda driver Marc Marquez.
