After winning every MotoGP title last year, Ducati shows no signs of losing momentum, having performed strongly in pre-season testing at Sepang last february. Mattia Pasini has no doubts that the Borgo Panigale manufacturer will be very strong again in 2023.
Speaking to the GPOne.com website, the rider said that Ducati is also performing at a good level among the respective private teams, which he considers to be important for riders to be able to concentrate on their main task:
– The Ducati has been the bike to beat for some years and comes with a squad of several strong riders and several factory bikes on the track. Unlike last year, when the GP22 was a bike that had some difficulties, especially with [Luca] Marini, [Jorge] Martin and [Johann] Zarco, this season from the factory team to the private, in my opinion they have bikes with 95% of the setup and for a rider this is important, because then you can just concentrate on riding.
