Ducati, Alvaro Bautista exposes himself on Marc Marquez

During an interview given to the microphones of "DAZN Spain", Spanish centaur Alvaro Bautista, among the various topics discussed, bluntly expressed his expectations for Marc Marquez, who will make his debut on the Ducati of team Gresini after saying goodbye to Honda. In addition, the two-time Superbike champion also è dwelt on what the nine-time world champion can bring to the Borgo Panigale stable.

"When you put together a very good rider like Marc Marquez and the best bike, I think it is automatic to make 1+1. I’m sure he will be very fast, win races and fight for the championship, helping to further raise the level of Ducati" began the two-time Superbike champion.

"Last year they were invincible and now with Marc, everyone will be forced to go to the limit. It will be good for Ducati to have such internal competition, but at the same time it will be very complicated to manage it, especially becauseé Marquez will not be an official rider. Of course, the fans, including me, will enjoy the races and see what Ducati" be able to do, added the Castilian centaur.

"Ducati wants to win. There will beà a lot of competition and tension, becauseé almost all the riders will start 2024 without a contract. For 2025 I hope that Marc Marquez will be with me at the Ducati presentation dressed in red, becauseé it would mean that he&eagrave; will be in the official team and that I&eograve; will also be there in the Superbike" commented Alvaro Bautista.
