Filippo Preziosi resigns from Ducati

Filippo Preziosi has resigned from Ducati before he was due to start his new position at the team, citing poor health.

The 45-year-old Italian had been at the helm of Ducati's MotoGP project since its race-winning 2003 debut, and was in charge of the engineering of the Desmosedici machine through the successful Casey Stoner era and the subsequent Valentino Rossi disaster.

The only rider who could make the Ducati work was Stoner.
That means the success while Stoner was riding Ducati was
in spite of the Ducati, NOT because of the Ducati. But Stoner is
the sort of amazing rider who comes along once in a generation
( if that often ) and the Ducati must be able to win without Stoner.



The Germans who own Ducati now aren't going to tolerate
incompetence from staff at Ducati, and such staff will be
replaced. That's most likely to be the truth behind these
stories of "ill health". The Germans gave him the chance to
leave gracefully and he took it. Ferdinand Piech, who gave the world
the Porsche 917, and the Group B Audi Quattro rally car, as well as
numerous other racing and street cars, doesn't like excuses or failure,
he wants success and he will do what is necessary to get it.

Makes you wonder - Rosi said he was pleased with Audi's takeover and support earlier last year - how much will they pour into the thing to get it competitive or will Ducati Motogp fade away?

I think that this year will decide things.

Looks like the sbk effort can be competitive, wouldn't surprise me if they focus there and give up motogp.

Which will be hard to do, with Ezpeleta controlling both series. Motogp is his baby, and he will throw every road block up to prevent Audi from pulling the pin on it.
