“One title is not enough for me, only Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez have managed to confirm themselves as champions in MotoGp.”

Change of number and statements from the reigning champion: Pecco Bagnaia on the sidelines of the Ducati team presentation shows great determination ahead of the upcoming MotoGp World Championship.

“We have learned from our mistakes, so we will start from a better position,” said the new MotoGp number one. “I know that defending the title is a very difficult thing: only Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez have succeeded. We will have to be determined, but I am extremely ambitious to try.”

“I certainly must not make the mistake of thinking I have already won and relax,” Bagnaia continued at the press conference. I’ll try to have the same approach as always: it won’t be easy to defend the title, but that’s what I’m here for. It’s true that I won a title, but it’s not enough for me and I want more, so I have to keep pushing to improve year after year.”
