Andrea Dovizioso has indicated this week’s MotoGP test at Jerez will define the Ducati Desmosedici GP package for 2020, which comes after a positive first impression at Valencia last week.
The Ducati Team rider completed a number of back-to-back tests with a selection of new components in Spain, however he’ll reassess the updates at the two-day Jerez test to confirm a direction for the GP20 machine.
“It was important to deliberate on several components of the new bike on which we did back-to-back tests, and we were also able to try out a new experimental front tyre brought here by Michelin,” Dovizioso explained.
“The next test at Jerez will be very important for us to be able to give a definitive opinion about the 2020 package, but the first impression is positive.”
Dovizioso was joined by Ducati Team test rider Michele Pirro during the Valencia test, while Danilo Petrucci completed minimal laps on day one as he recovered from a shoulder injury. He’s expected to be back on-track this week.
