Ducati title challenger gets contract extension through to 2020
Andrea Dovizioso will be staying at the Ducati MotoGP Team through 2019 and 2020.
The 32-year-old Italian, who joined the factory squad in 2013, challenged Marc Márquez for the title in 2017 after taking six wins.
He won the opening 2018 round in Qatar, and sits fifth in the riders’ standings.
Mat Oxley reported earlier in May that ‘Dovizioso’s manager Simone Battistella agrees that his rider is on the verge of inking another deal with the factory he joined in 2013.
‘“We have no other offer on the table,” he said at Jerez,’ wrote Oxley.
