11 Jan 2012 Domenicali and Preziosi
Domenicali: “In 2011 Alonso did his best.
2012 will be the year of the truth for Massa”.
Preziosi: the new Ducati is a secret up to Sepang
In Madonna di Campiglio the Wrooom week goes on. Stefano Domenicali, Team Principal of Scuderia Ferrari, and Filippo Preziosi, General Director of Ducati Corse, spoke about the arrangements for the next motors season. Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, the Ferrari President, and Carmelo Ezpeleta, the Managing Director of Dorna (the Spanish company that manages the Moto Gp) reach Campiglio too.
Domenicali explained the changes in the business management with the arrival of the technical director Mr. Pat Fry and of Mr. Hirohide Hamashima. In 2012 there will be a revolution in Ducati con two new motorbikes for Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden. Preziosi skated over the technical questions of the journalists.
“In the new management – Domenicale said – the traditional values and the passion combines with the new enthusiasm.” 2012 – the Team Principal continued – will be a crucial year for the future of Felipe (Massa) in Ferrari.
Alonso raced at the highest levels, now it is up to our engineers to give him a car that allows him to be first.
Where is the motorbike? This is the first question addressed to Filippo Preziosi, who in the last year presented the Desmosedici in Madonna di Campiglio. The general director of Ducati Corse congratulated on the hospitality of Madonna di Campiglio, defining the resort “a wonderful place”, but he did’nt reveal the technical news of the new motorbikes for Rossi and Hayden.
“They are assembling the motorbikes in these days in Bologna and you could see them in Sepang” – he answered – “in a few months we are making a work that is usually made in two years”
In 2011 we collected data, information and knowledges thanks to the drivers’ judgements; as regards 2012, we have many expectations. The challenge we are going to face is strong and daring, but not impossible. Ducati already showed to be able to win impossible challenges.
