Ducati, Tardozzi confident: "Bagnaia should not fear Marquez"

Ducati team manager Davide Tardozzi in an interview with Motosan sent a message to two-time world champion Pecco Bagnaia, who this year will have an insidious brand mate like Marc Marquez with whom he will have to deal: "If Pecco wins his third title by beating Marc Marquez with Ducati he enters the ’Olympus, so è a challenge to face. Bagnaia has won two World Championships in a row, è nice to aim for the third having the chanceà to beat Marc Marquez"

"Marc Marquez è an'opportunityà"

Tardozzi explained that Marc Marquez è not a problem, "but an opportunity;. And for Ducati I see the possibility of having a champion who can è give us many suggestions to improve the bike. It must be seen as something positive".

"Bagnaia must not be afraid"

"A champion like Bagnaia – continued Tardozzi – must not be afraid, he must be willing to face a rider like Marc Marquez with the same bike. And the same goes for Jorge Martin and Enea Bastianini".

"On the aerodynamics we were right"

On the issue of aerodynamics: "It&#39s something we believed in a lot. We had all the factories against it from the beginning, but now they all look like Formula 1. So many teams are hiring people coming from F1…. According to Tardozzi, balance is needed: "We need people within motorcycling who understand how far you have to go, because it&#39s not the same as F1. The riders have understood that aerodynamics è useful for performance but also for safety".
