Ducati is currently the manufacturer in the world that has more riders with its motorcycles, a total of six, of which the latest specifications are bicycle.
Paolo Ciabatti recalled the current season and said the results were positive, as quoted by Speedweek: “It was a fantastic season. We will try again next year ”.
Then the Italian remembered the number of riders who currently have the latest bike specs, the GP21, and that it is impossible to have the same material available to everyone, which in the future may mean some riders will be lost, if there is a better offer: “We recently had four riders on factory bikes. Then you have to think about what talent you can offer for the future. And if you only have four interesting seats, it always happens that sooner or later a driver gets a better offer from another team or plant. No manufacturer can hire ten riders for MotoGP and offer everyone a good place. “
Currently, Francesco Bagnaia and Jack Miller from the factory team, Johann Zarco and Jorge Martín, Pramac’s duo, are driving the latest version of the bike, while Bastianini does not have the latest version.
Next season, Luca Marini will also have the latest version and Bastianinis, who is on his way to Rookie of the Year, will have the GP21. There will also be two more riders on the track with the Ducati, in the colors of Aramco Racing, Valentino’s new Rossi team in the main class.
