The other pilot
This is the version of Petrucci: “Before qualifying, I didn’t speak to Dovizioso and Ducati hasn’t given me any indication – Petrucci explained to Sky Sport -. I did what I chand I could, there are some races that I suffer in top speed and I needed a trail in qualifying. If Ducati had given me an order, I would have respected it but nobody asked me for anything. I’m sorry Dovi got angry, I want to talk to him “.
Tardozzi: “It was a coincidence”
the team manager
Ciabatti: “There are no team orders”
So Davide Tardozzi, Ducati team manager: “Andrea started a lap earlier, if I could talk to the riders like in F1, maybe I would have said ‘ok, pull yourself’, but I repeat: it was a randomness, no one said ‘Go outside, Andrea pulls and Danilo stays behind. We cannot put all the Ducatis in front to pull Dovi“.
