    Le Mans MotoGP Saturday Subscriber Notes: Ducati's Complicated Choice, And The Mystery Of Difficult Starts


    Ducati have a decision to make. They have one seat to fill - the second factory Ducati seat alongside Pecco Bagnaia - and three candidates to fill it with. Three riders who each deserve the seat on their own merits.

    Though there has been no official communication, we are expecting to see an announcement of Pecco Bagnaia's teammate either at or just before the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello. Which gives Enea Bastianini, Jorge Martin, and Marc Marquez two sprint races and two full length races to convince Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Corse boss Gigi Dall'Igna, Sporting Director Mauro Grassilli, and team boss Davide Tardozzi to choose them to partner Bagnaia for the 2025 season and beyond.

    Results, or at the very least, performance, is incredibly important in bolstering their claims to the second Ducati seat. Which is why the outcome of the first of those two sprint races matters so much.
