The tests at the beginning of the year did not give great indications and the bikes seem to be equivalent: it will be a very interesting year. Andrea Dovizioso, after having tasted the idea of winning the World Championship last year, returns even more convinced. And with a bike that has been improved compared to last year. The pilot from Emilia is ready to give the assault on the 2018 MotoGP, hoping for some misstep of the opponents. Among the pretenders "to the throne" we can not fail to mention Valentino Rossi, who has just renewed for another two years with Yamaha to go in search of the last World Championship of his career.
