Borgo Panigale stable’s sporting director Tardozzi spoke ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix

Pecco Bagnaia in Malaysia has the first match ball for the MotoGp World Championship. Ducati sport director Davide Tardozzi to MotoGP Podcast assured that there will be no team orders in Sepang, but at the same time he warned the eight riders, “There is no point in taking risks between Ducatis, that’s the only thing we told the guys. Then of course, if we had a chance to win in Valencia, clearly we would give some orders if it was necessary.”

More on the aid to Bagnaia: “So far there hasn’t been any. Let’s look for example at what Enea did in Misano or Aragon. let’s then look at Johann Zarco in Thailand: those who understand racing know that the rain tires wear out very quickly when the track dries. He then said he would take too many risks in trying to overtake Pecco. But it was totally Johann’s choice.”

On Ducati’s dominance and the eight bikes on the grid: “Why hasn’t any other manufacturer come forward to bring more bikes? Why do we have to be blamed for a good sports policy?”
