CLAUDIO DOMENICALI - (Ducati Motor Holding General Director)
"A fourth place at Mugello is obviously not totally satisfactory for us but it was a good race nevertheless, especially at the end. Casey showed his character, he knew he didn't have the pace to fight for the podium so he waited for the right moment to secure the best possible result. For some reason, which we are going to analyse, he didn't have the grip we expected him to have after the changes we made this morning but he definitely got the best out of what he had. Nicky didn't make a great start and in an attempt to make up ground he went wide in one corner and crashed, but overall he showed once again that he is competitive and he confirmed that with another excellent qualifying session and by fighting in the top five in the race."
