Stefano Cecconi, CEO of Aruba S.p.A and Team Principal:
"Eleven wins and a total of 22 podiums in 2016 represent a record and are a perfect example of the constant progress made over these last two seasons, but our objective remains the title and we are here to aim for it under the sign of continuity and evolution. Above all, by renewing and reinforcing our links with Ducati and represent it, together with Feel Racing, as the factory team in the Superbike World Championship in the future. Then, by extending our commitment with Chaz Davies, a rider of universally recognized merit and quality, and by flanking him with a champion of the calibre of Marco Melandri, who has already demonstrated true speed and professionalism right from the first tests with the bike and the team. Finally, we have also made several technical and organizational changes, and we are convinced we have all the right cards to succeed."
