Stefano Domenicali: Formula 1 and MotoGP work together

Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali says it would be “wrong” if his series and the premier class MotoGP did not work together.

As for the racing side of each series, there isn’t much in common. After all, Formula 1 is driven on four wheels instead of two in MotoGP.

However, Domenicali, who took control of Formula 1 in early 2021, said two “incredible motorsport platforms” like F1 and MotoGP have to and are working together in every possible way.

“Yes, we are in contact and working together to improve our platform,” confirmed Domenicali in an interview with the MotoGP website.

“We can learn a lot from each other, so this is the right way to move forward.

“We have the privilege of being two incredible motorsport platforms and it would be wrong not to work together and most of all it would be great to be friends.”

It helps, of course, if Domenicali is a big MotoGP fan.

“I feel very blessed and happy to be part of this family,” he said.

“I love Moto GP, I love motorcycles, it’s nice to see how many riders fight for victory.”

The worlds of Formula 1 and MotoGP already crossed in 2019 when Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi swapped trips in Valencia.

It was kept in silence, but Hamilton later admitted an accident while riding the Yamaha MotoGP bike.

And for 2021, Davide Brivio has been lured away from MotoGP to take over as Race Director of the renamed Alpine F1 team.

Brivio is considered one of the greatest team bosses in motorcycle racing history, having led his teams and riders to six rider titles, four constructor titles and six team titles during his time in MotoGP and the Superbike World Championship.
