Ducati will decide on the second rider in August; Decision to be made between Enea Bastianini and Jorge Martin
Ducati has yet to decide on Francesco Bagnaia’s teammate for the next MotoGP season and it will still take some time. The choice seems to be between Enea Bastianini and Jorge Martin, who are in satellites Gresini Racing and Pramac Racing respectively.
At the microphones of the official broadcast on the championship site, Ducati sporting director Paolo Ciabatti clarified on Saturday that a decision should not be made until August – with the intention that Martin still has time without injury. to prove its worth.
– We will probably wait for the second race in August to assess the situation a bit. The goal for us is to have Enea and Jorge with us next year. I think we have achieved this goal, now we have to decide who will go to the factory team and we want to give Jorge another chance to ride the bike without physical problems and so on.
The game card is Joan Mir, along with other riders outside of the current Ducati sphere, the official assured: “Joan Mir is a good driver, but we’ve never had contact with him. I think the decision will be between Jorge and Enea for the factory team and there are no other riders included. We will renew with Johann Zarco for Pramac. I think that puts an end to the rumors of potential new pilots entering this scene. I think we have a lot of competitive riders at Ducati and we have to make the best choice among them”.
