Irony on the choice of rider for the official Ducati team: “Between an Italian and a Spaniard, they might choose a Frenchman…”

Ducati centaur Johann Zarco at a press conference in Assen sent an ironic message to the Borgo Panigale stable regarding the race for a place in the official team alongside Pecco Bagnaia next season: “If Dall’Igna does not know who to choose between an Italian (Bastianini ed.) and a Spaniard (Martin ed.) to flank Bagnaia in the official team, they can still choose a Frenchman if they want…”

“If I were to win races and fight for the title, then it would be even better to go to the factory team, but for now it’s okay in Pramac,” are the words reported by Sky. However, the future with the Reds is not in question: “Signing the renewal with Ducati for me is practically sure, almost 100 percent, if this does not happen, it would be a surprise for me.”

“I don’t feel less pressure from not being considered for the factory team. I’m fine in the Pramac team, everyone knows that the factory team is a step that could be the dream for me, everyone knows my position, at the beginning of the year I was hoping to get good results to be considered, but for me it’s okay now in the Pramac team, I feel good here.”
