Ducati Corse General Manager Filippo Preziosi Resigns
Preziosi has tied his name to Ducati for the last 19 years, of which the last 12 meant filling the General Manager of Ducati Corse, and was supposed to become head of the Ducati R&D department.
However, this will no longer happen as Preziosi has been replaced by Bernhard Gobmeier of BMW fame, and the R&D Director position at Ducati Corse was left vacant for the moment, with no new name rumored yet.
Despite Ducati saying that Filippo Preziosi's departure from the racing business was due to his poor health, it's impossible no to link his resignation and the bitter last 2 years of fruitless MotoGP efforts, and Valentino Rossi's lack of wins for that time.
These darker days will come to pass, and we just know that Filippo Preziosi's name will once more be remembered with pride. We wish him all the best, no matter which path he decides to tread.
