After the lost world duel in 2022, the feeling of having to deal with one more rival pops up.

Fabio Quartararo challenged Pecco Bagnaia for the MotoGP title last season, but expect another serious contender for the title in the next one. That would be Enea Bastianini, who the French rider says could also shuffle the cards at Ducati.

“I think seeing Bagnaia and Bastianini battle against each other in the official Ducati team will be good,” Quartararo explained, as reported by ‘Motorsport.com’. Last year they won 11 Grands Prix between the two of them, and their team will be the strongest again this year. But what happens if your partner goes better than you? It will be a very interesting struggle.”

“Bastianini will be among the favorites in 2023,” Quartararo insisted. Who now expects to have to at his own will battle with his new rival: “We haven’t had a real head-to-head battle on the track yet. Sometimes I win and he falls, sometimes the opposite happens. However, I think a duel between us will come very soon.”
