Danilo Petrucci signed with KTM. The recent visit to Mattighofen was therefore more than just a short blitz to get to know each other.
However, it is not certain that the rider from Terni will really run in Pol Espargarò's place. In fact, the Austrian company could also hijack him into the Tech 3 satellite team directed by Hervé Poncharal.
Asked for a comment his manager Alberto Vergani said: "It's true, we signed with KTM to have a 100% official bike, but it's true that Danilo could race with one of the two teams. Nothing will change, he will have the same material 100%".
