Madonna di Campiglio, January 15 - Italian Andrea
Dovizioso said Tuesday that he is aiming to win the MotoGP title
within two years after taking his compatriot Valentino Rossi's
place at Ducati.
Nine-time world champion Rossi, 33, ended a winless
two-year stint with Ducati last season to return to his former
team Yamaha.
"I have a long-term plan," Dovizioso told reporters at the
pre-season Wrooom media event Ducati holds every year with
Ferrari at the Alpine resort of Madonna di Campiglio.
"At the start of the next two years I won't look at the
results too much but I hope to do well enough to become world
champion with Ducati," added the 27-year-old, who moved from the
Honda factory team.
"Replacing Valentino Rossi is undoubtedly a big job, but he
and Ducati didn't do very well together.
"So taking his place today is not as much of a problem as
it might have been in the past.
"In the past he won a lot, so whichever rider would have
taken his place (before) would have been in a difficult
position. But now this is not an issue".
