The impressive showdown of the Ducati during the qualifying of the Grand Prix of Thailand, with the beauty of 6 bikes in the first 7 positions e 7 in the top9, has not gone unnoticed in the world of motorcycling. For example, Jorge Lorenzo, three-time MotoGP world champion, shared a post by a Spanish journalist reporting the top nine positions in the standings (seven Ducati plus Quartararo 4th and Marquez 8th) commenting: “There is no doubt about which bike is the best on the grid and which are the best riders on the current starting grid“, A sentence signed by the former Yamaha rider with an eloquent”Touché“. In short, the recent Ducati domination, which resulted in a constructors’ title won with five races to go and the leadership in the team championship, cannot go unnoticed, also adding that seven of the eight drivers from Borgo Panigale currently on track they have won at least one pole position in 2022 (the only one with dry mouth is Luca Marini).
So tomorrow Quartararo will find around six Ducatis, a situation that cannot leave him calm, considering also what has been talked about possible team orders in favor of his rival Francesco Bagnaia. Davide Tardozzi, Borgo Panigale team manager, explained to the microphones of Dazn Spain his point of view on tomorrow’s race (the start at 10 am Italian time): “First we need to see how the weather will be tomorrow. If it rains I am sure that many riders will be able to compete for both the victory and the podium, I am thinking above all of Marc Marquez. But in general we have a lot of respect for Fabio Quartararo, we know that he will start from the second row and he will be one of the men to beat for tomorrow. He showed a really fast race pace today in PL4 and therefore it will not be that simple and I confess that we are happy to have so many Ducatis in front of him ”. The Italian then entered into the merits of the team order issue: “Pablo Nieto (VR46 team manager, ed) did he say he would gladly help us? Thanks for his words, Pecco is part of the Academy, but he needs to do his race and repeat what he has already done on six occasions this year. He must stand in front of everyone. He doesn’t like getting help, something could happen at the end of the championship in the last race in Valencia, but Pecco has already told us several times that he doesn’t want help. He wants to win the championship on his own and your speed “.
Finally, Tardozzi further clarified: “We believe in the intelligence of Ducati riders. Ducati riders know what is good to do, what is safe and what is not and therefore we don’t have to say anything to them, because they already know what to do on their own “.
