MotoGP : Ducati likely to reduce Lorenzo's salary

Ducati factory rider, Three time MotoGP world champion - Jorge Lorenzo likely to receive less fee next season once he extends contract with ducati.
Lorenzo was signed by ducati last year, was offered whooping 12million Euros a year, while teammate Andrea Dovizioso was signed for 2 Million Euros.
Lorenzo has failed to impress the ducati, and have taken longer than expected to acclimatize.
Although Ducati has made it clear its intention is to keep both riders after their contracts expire this year, their situations have changed considerably since those deals were done.

"I don’t think we can give Jorge the same amount of money as when he arrived at the team."
“The intention is to keep working with both riders, but our economical limit is clear," Ciabatti told Motorsport.com./autosport

"We will talk with our sponsors because Telecom Italia decided to leave us and when we get an idea of how much money we can provide, then will be easier to talk to the managers [of the riders].
“What is evident is that the situation is very different compared to 2016. When we hired Jorge, he had a very important offer from Yamaha for two more years and was the current world champion.

"When we renewed with Andrea, in the middle of 2016, he had never won with Ducati. We will reward what he did in 2017.
"A rider like him, with a contract expiring at the end of this year, is in a stronger negotiating position than before.
“[Ducati CEO] Claudio Domenicali said it at the team’s launch. Ducati made an effort to attract Lorenzo’s attention, but this was in a specific moment.

"I don't think we can give Jorge the same amount of money as when he arrived at the team."
Ducati's desire to "reward" Dovizioso with a salary increase could also impact when it can offer Lorenzo.
"When we renewed with Andrea, in the middle of 2016, he had never won with Ducati. We will reward what he did in 2017," Ciabatti added.
"A rider like him, with a contract expiring at the end of this year, is in a stronger negotiating position than before."
