The presentations continue in the paddock of MotoGP. The fans are waiting for the moment when all the motorcycles can be seen at the Losail circuit, in Qatar, to face the preseason tests and the first two dates of the 2021 season championship. This Tuesday it was the turn of Ducati, who together with his new pilots showed the world «The Rossa«.
After the team Sponsorama reveal the details of the design of his new motorcycle, one of them with the colors of the Valentino Rossi academy, it was Ducati’s turn. Beside Jack Millery Francesco Bagnaia, the Italian team will seek to keep one of the most desired objectives: the drivers’ championship. In 2020 they kept the brand name.
After several seasons, the Italian brand will not have Andrea Dovizioso and it will be the first time since 2006 that they will debut a pair of pilots. This year it will be Miller and Bagnaia’s turn. The Italian will be the great hope of fans of the red motorcycle, although Miller has just had a very regular season, at the controls of the team’s Ducati Pramac.
The head of the team, Gigi Dall’Igna, made it clear that it was time to change his pilots and ruled out a possible return of Andrea Dovizioso in 2022, since in his words they sought to ‘rejuvenate’ the pair. Despite his MotoGP experience, Miller is only 26 years old, while Bagnaia turned 24 less than a month ago.
“Miller is incredibly talented. In the last two races he did not fail at all. You must understand that you can fight for the World Cup, think that sometimes it is better to be content with what you have to risk. Bagnaia knows how to push the front rubber to the limit like few others. The goal is to win the drivers’ title, or even both titles, ”commented Dall’Igna.
