MotoGP, Bezzecchi: "Me off the official Ducati list? I'm not surprised."

"About the market, I don't think. I still lack competitiveness, so now the only goal is to improve as early as these next two close races. Who deserves to be promoted next to Bagnaia? Martin."

MotoGP: Bezzecchi:

Reduced from a complicated weekend to say the least in France that saw him protagonist of a double crash in the two races, on the eve of the Montmelo round Marco Bezzecchi preferred to adopt a low profile.

"For now, no expectations being only Thursday ," he said, " In Le Mans I had been fast and brought nothing home, so, I hope, to be equally competitive, but more concrete . The low grip? It will be hard especially for the front, but I hope it will prove to be an advantage. In general the mistakes made in France were not wanted, however they will serve as a lesson. I will try to approach the races more calmly and make better use of the speed we have. A lot will depend on the track conditions. Will Friday be crucial? It always is by now, as it helps lay a foundation for the continuation."

Inevitable the question about the future teammate of Pecco Bagnaia that, at 99% will not be him. "Disappointed not to be on the list? No, it is normal that they are still looking at Bastianini, as well as Marquez and Martin. Now my only goal is to improve. Only in this way can I be considered for a place in an official team. Who would I choose? Jorge. In my opinion he deserves it more than the others. In 2023 he fought for the title and now he is leading the standings and has won two GPs, as well as numerous Sprints. Does the Spaniard have the best Ducati? Probably yes, but Pecco is also strong. All the riders are good today, but the Iberian is in a state of grace. A lot will depend on mistakes. However, let's say that even in Jerez, when he crashed, he was able to recover well."

Returning to his own personal ambitions, the Romagnolo reiterated his desire to have a factory bike at his disposal, but on one condition. "For me the important thing is to be able to fight at the front, so I don't know if I would leave VR46 to finish a team with an uncompetitive package. We'll see how it ends up. At the moment I don't have many options - he confessed - In any case, currently I don't have the cards to go where I would like, so the market I don't want to think about. Instead, I'm glad to be able to be at the start of two close races on tracks I love."

Concluding with the weaknesses of his GP23, he sentenced laconically, "I am struggling with riding and what influences me."
