Ducati, Enea Bastianini remembers his drama

It certainly wasn&#39t the 2023 of dreams for Enea Bastianini, who in his first year in the official Ducati team spent a first part of the season to forget because of the injury suffered in Portimao. The rider from Rimini had shoulder and ankle trouble that forced him to a forced and most untimely stop at the start of the World Championship.

"There were two critical moments, the recovery from the shoulder injury worried me a lot. I couldn&#39t get my strength back, sometimes my arm would fall asleep on the bike and that had never happened to me. Since Barcelona things have improved, but I had a relapse. I sat in the wheelchair for 20 days, I was very angry, I didn’t want to talk to anybody, I didn’t want to do anything. I hit rock bottom, but from there; everything è was easier and è it was good to be myself again", are the words to Sky.

Just the last few races have allowed Bastianini to defend his place in the official team: "Even in the difficulties" we have always overcome them. We have never quarreled, we always go in the same direction". 

"Sometimes we got nervous, but we are fine even when things are not going well. I have never doubted myself. Jorge Martin had n wonderful championship, but I think without injuries I too could have fought for the title. I will try again next year’next year".
