MotoGP: Bezzecchi: "I still don't know where I'll be in 2024, I dream of a factory bike"


MotoGP stops off at Mugello and there is a lot of anticipation surrounding the home riders. One of these is undoubtedly Marco Bezzecchi, fresh from the success obtained three weeks ago at Le Mans. The VR46 Mooney team rider is stoked, because in France he sent an important signal to the opposition, especially to his friend Pecco Bagnaia, who is now only one point away in the Championship.

“After the victory at Le Mans I trimmed my moustache – he recalled – Mugello is a fantastic track and it would be special to see such a crowd again and be on the podium. There is a lot of anticipation, but I don't know if there will be some technical updates. In fact, I will have to talk about it later and tomorrow you will know more. For sure Ducati is doing a great job and I feel strong support, in fact I can't complain about anything".

At Mugello we then talked about the rider market and Marco's name is at the centre of the negotiations.

“The goal is above all to continue working as I am doing and to improve. My dream would obviously be a factory team and if it were Ducati it would be better, since I already know the bike. At the moment however I still don't know what I will do” he explained.

Marco was then asked if this is the highest pressure he has ever experienced as a rider. “We're still in an early stage of the Championship - he underlined - The pressure is high, but it's certainly not the highest he's ever experienced in his career, precisely because we're only in the first races. Mugello is certainly a beautiful track and I am enthusiastic about this first part of the season. Three beautiful long races and busy weekends await us from here to Holland. Mugello and Assen will be the most tiring tracks to face and we'll see how it goes. The Sachsenring is perhaps less demanding, but it's still a tough track"

Last week Bezzecchi also had the opportunity to go to his home circuit of Misano to closely follow the SBK round. He enjoyed the experience: "it was fun, I saw Supersport Race 2, won by Manzi after a great duel with Bulega. Ducati dominate? Bautista is very strong and the bike is competitive, but the other riders aren't so fast, so it’s Alvaro who makes the difference”.

Finally he invited the public to come to Mugello: “For the moment I feel like in the other races. It’s obviously that this GP is something different, as it's great to see the MotoGP bikes here in action. I still remember when I came as a child and I hope there are many people at the weekend. I won't have my grandstand, but I hope to see a lot of fans" concluded Bez.
