MotoGP: Kasey Stouner's cooperation and Ducati came to an end


The cooperation which began in 2007, and then interrupted for several years while the famous Australian acted under Honda Racing flags, was resumed 3 years ago: Kasey Stouner helped to develop and improve Ducati Desmosedici in the different ways, generally being directly involved in tests.

MOTORCYCLE RACES .RU, on November 13, 2018 - Kasey Stouner was and remains still only pilot of MotoGP who managed to win a title in the Royal class for the Italian plant. He also remains the most successful pilot of Ducati since that moment as the company entered the Grand Prix. For this reason, Stouner is honored to be the ambassador of a brand in the world of motorcycle sport in 2016. He participated in all activities of Ducati on both sides of the ocean, was especially brightly presented on World Ducati Week.

However, practically for all racing season of 2018 Stouner dropped out of a field of vision: in March he performed big ligament operation which he planned many years therefore he could not ride the motorcycle more than 6 months.

Came the parting moment. The president of Ducati Holding Claudio Domenicali and the pilot wished each other good luck and dispersed.

On some rumors, Kasey ceased to satisfy the company as the test pilot. In 2017 the official developer Desmosedici Micchele Pirro made statements in the Italian press in which he derided Stouner's "participation" in development of GP17, including its presence on tests and a contribution "insignificant". Also, between Ducati and Stouner there was a real conflict when the plant asked the to come the test pilot for start at least of one stage MotoGP, but was refused.

However, the fact that Ducati Desmosedici GP18 became the best prototype of MotoGP in the majority of technical parameters: it is the most powerful, de facto the fastest and stable prototype from all, it is even more comfortable, than Honda RC213V! It is obvious that Stouner's contribution to it is invaluable.
