review Francesco Bagnaia to join Jack Miller in the Ducati Team next season

The 23-year-old Italian rider will join the official team next season after his first two years in MotoGP at Pramac Racing, a factory team supported by the house of Borgo Panigale, Born in Torino in 1997, Francesco 'Pecco' Bagnaia made his debut in the Moto3 World Championship in 2013 to make the leap to Moto2 in 2017, a category where he was proclaimed World Champion in 2018. 

He went up to MotoGP in 2019 with the Pramac Racing Team and this year Pecco has excelled on many occasions driving the Demosedici GP, achieving his first podium finish when he finished second in the Lenovo GP of San Marino and the Rimini Riviera Francesco Bagnaia: “I chose to be a Ducati rider before I was a Moto2 World Champion in 2018 and they chose me before I knew I would make it. 

This has been our bet because until then I had always been a fast rider, but had not achieved anything: Ducati decided to believe in me before everyone else We didn't know how it would go, but today, if I had to go back, I would have done the exact same thing. 

My MotoGP debut was not easy, but at Ducati they never doubted me: they have given me all the support and confidence that serve a rookie and allowed me to accumulate experience in 2019. I have listened to them, I have trusted them, and together We have learned to know each other, to understand each other and now we are a great team. 

They have taught me a working method that has allowed us to achieve great satisfactions and I think this is only the beginning. Today I am the happiest person in the world, for me it is a dream come true: being an official Ducati rider has always been my ambition and I have achieved it together with all those who have believed in me even when things were not going well. 

I want to give a special thanks to Claudio Domenicali, Gigi Dall'Igna, Paolo Ciabatti and Davide Tardozzi for their trust, to the Pramac Racing Team who have welcomed me like family and to the VR46 Riders Academy that has supported all these years".

Claudio Domenicali, Managing Director of Ducati Motor Holding: “Racing is a continually evolving technology incubator that represents a fundamental part of our company To be successful it is essential to continue investing in research and development and not be afraid to innovate and renew. For this reason I am very happy with the arrival of young and talented drivers who make us look to the future with optimism and with a constant desire to improve. 

Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia this year have shown that they can harness the potential of our Desmosedici GP and have earned this opportunity. His arrival to the official team from the Pramac Racing Team, where they have both grown up, is proof of the efficient collaboration that unites us with Paolo Campinoti's team, whom I want to thank. 

Having said that, Now we are focused on the current season because we want to achieve the best possible results with our two riders: Andrea, who in these eight years with us has been runner-up in the world three seasons in a row and has won 14 Grand Prix, becoming the most successful Ducati rider after Stoner, is still fighting for the world title.
