The words of Davide Tardozzi

Davide Tardozzi, Ducati team manager, spoke to As about his riders, present and future: "Pecco Bagnaia è was very brave to put pressure on Martin until the end, becauseé he was incredibly fast, but he made a mistake".

"He made a mistake becauseé Pecco kept putting pressure on him, tenth after tenth, until he è found himself half a second behind. At that point Jorge pushed too hard and made a mistake. È a pity, because é he would have deserved to finish on the podium, first or second, but these are the races”.

Chapter Marc Marquez, who will be part of the official Ducati team for 2025 and 2026: "If we chose him in the factory team è becauseé we believe in him. Right now he is suffering a little bit’ both because of inexperience on the bike and becauseé some things have not gone well. But if you don’t respect Marc Marquez you don’t know anything about motorcycles".

"I è liked his comeback, becauseé to do a race like thatì after the problems we had on Fridayì and Saturday and with that crash, only champions can do it and that is not up for discussion. Those who criticize Marquez, do not know motorcycling”, concluded Tardozzo.
