Alex Marquez will race for the Gresini team again in 2024. It's not exactly market 'bombshell' news, because the extension of the contract was a foregone conclusion, but it's now official. To make the announcement, the Italian team posted a photo of the Spanish rider with Nadia Gresini, the team boss, on X (Twitter). "He stays!" was the caption to the image.
After all, it could not have been otherwise. After leaving Honda, the youngest of the Marquez brothers is like a born-again rider on the Italian team's Ducati. In Argentina (his second GP on the Desmosedici) he got on the podium and a few days ago, at Silverstone, he took his first victory in the sprint race. It’s a partnership that is blooming and it would have been a shame to interrupt it.
