Is this Marco Melandri's WSB boss taking over at Ducati Corse and booting Preziosi off into road bikes? ("We do not think it was a problem with the riders, Filippo, and if you are disappointed we can recommend a psychologist."
Motomatters has a story here
As an owner of a Ducati road bike and possible future purchaser, I am not delighted they have parked Preziosi at the top of R & D. (Nothing against the guy, and know little about him. Just not an obvious good fit from this distance.)
