Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali has said that he wants to see the team win at least two races during the upcoming MotoGP season.
In the 2015 MotoGP season, Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone, who are Ducati’s two riders, clinched eight podium finishes between them.
However, neither of them were able to come first in any races, with Dovizioso finishing second in the first three races of the season in Qatar, America and Argentina while Iannone came second in Italy.
However, while Ducati enjoyed a successful season overall as Iannone finished fifth and Dovizioso came seventh, Domenicali has urged both riders to aim for a number of first place finishes next season.
“We must win at least two [races],” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “We got very close [this year], with some very good races, but the competition is very strong.
“The championship is the highest level, but the objectives will not change: we must improve.”
The 2016 MotoGP season will start at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar on March 20.
