Davide Tardozzi reveals reasons for Marc Marquez's hiring

During an intervention to the microphones of "CycleWorld", the Ds of Ducati Davide Tardozzi, among the various topics discussed, spoke bluntly about the decision by the stable of Borgo Panigale to hire Marc Marquez as Pecco Bagnaia’s teammate in the official team starting from the 2025 season. In addition, the blue executive also spoke plainly about the hierarchies between the two riders.

"We are really sorry to lose Martin and Enea, two riders in whom we believe a lot. We would have liked to keep them, but in the end we had to make a decision. Pecco has often repeated that he hopes to maintain harmony within the box and we are convinced that Marc’s presence will not go to harm the atmosphere within the team. We think we can handle two champions like Marquez and Bagnaia" began the Ducati Ds.

"The final decision è was made after the race at Mugello. Marc è was chosen for his abilityà to adapt very quickly to the bike and the performance offered in this beginning of the season. Clearly saying no to Jorge è was unfortunate, but we tried to keep both untilè è it became clear that it would not be possible and we were at a crossroads" added the Italian manager.

"Marc è the most winning rider there is on the grid, but that does not take our attention away from the world champion. Pecco has our total trust, he has given the guidelines for the development of the bike in recent years and è our priority, he comes first. So we thought we would give him the best possible companion" commented Davide Tardozzi.
