"It has been a real shame that we have not been able to be competitive with the Ducati, it would have given me great satisfaction, as well as to all the guys who have worked with me and who will be working right to the end. And it would have been great fun for all of our fans. I am sorry. But there are still 8 races to the end of the season, we are working to the maximum to make some great races. Ciao to everyone and see you at Indy. #ValeDucati"
