Carl Fogarty has his say on Alvaro Bautista and the 'dominant season for Ducati'

Gold and Goose

Carl Fogarty has had his say on the new superstar rider at Ducati in the WorldSBK Championship.

Carl Fogarty is a household name in the UK whether he is known as a four time WorldSBK Champion or as the King of the Jungle from I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here. The name Fogarty, or 'Foggy, has become legendary in WorldSBK history after his successful period with Ducati and then his time at Honda also.

But since Foggy has not been on the WorldSBK grid since 2000 he gave his opinion to WorldSBK.com about the new star man for Ducati in WorldSBK.


"It’s a pretty dominant season for Ducati and Alvaro!" said Foggy "They’re both as one, both incredible! He’s becoming unbeatable and even for the other Ducati riders, he’s becoming unbeatable."

Foggy went on to compare Bautista's performances this season to his own, "It kind of reminds me of my 1994 and 1995 season, my first years on the Ducati 916. He’s ironed out all of the little teething problems that maybe they had last year with his first year back on Ducati and he’s come out the blocks fighting like me in 1995.

"I can’t believe I’m saying it because last year, I actually thought it was a mistake that Ducati took him back and I was obviously proven very much wrong!

"He’s only a small guy but I don’t think that’s a lot to do with it to be fair, he’s just so at ease with the bike. It’s him who is making a difference because the other Ducatis aren’t getting near him."
