Petrucci is also honest when it comes to talking about his first year in official Ducati red. 2019 was a tale of two halves for the Mugello race winner, and Petrucci shares his thoughts on what happened after the summer break. “For sure I was not happy about last year. Because the difference between the first and second part was very, very high,” says Petrucci. “I was fighting for the top three in the first part and in the second part, I was top 10 but not really competitive. I tried to give an explanation to myself especially but there is nothing really important that I found. I mean, I haven’t a solution or a reason why in the second part of the championship I wasn’t really competitive.
