Ducati’s Dilemma: Ignoring In-form Jorge Martin Could be a Mistake as Teammate Decision Nears



Is Ducati able to overlook the rising star Jorge Martin as they approach a crucial choice regarding their riders?

"Ducati faces a tough choice regarding who will partner with Pecco, don't they?"

The unfolding drama regarding who will be Francesco Bagnaia's teammate at the factory Ducati team in 2025 took another turn at Le Mans, with top contenders Jorge Martin and Marc Marquez both crossing the finish line ahead of the current champion.

Pramac Ducati competitor Martin has widened his championship advantage over Bagnaia to 38 points.

At the same time, Marquez, in pursuit of his inaugural victory on a Ducati, has positioned his previous season's Gresini motorcycle just two points shy of Bagnaia, tying for third place in the rankings with Enea Bastianini, who is Bagnaia's present team partner.

The upcoming Mugello race, expected to take place at the end of the month, is being eyed as the probable occasion for Ducati to reveal who will be joining Bagnaia as his team-mate, a subject that was explored in the most recent episode of the MotoGP podcast.

"Throughout the previous year, Martin consistently found himself in a cycle of trying to regain his position after leading in the world championship, only to be setback by errors, returning him to the starting point," mentioned Jordan Moreland, the podcast presenter.

"This season has seen a total turnaround. His performance has been exceptional from the start. Despite his error in Jerez, he has managed to extend his lead in the championship to 38 points ahead of Pecco, and 40 points in front of both Marquez and Enea Bastianini. He has clearly demonstrated his worth to Ducati."

Martin is currently performing at the peak of his career, and his recent remarks caught attention when he stated, 'Ducati is aware of my capabilities.' He further implied following the Sprint that if they don't appreciate his value, he's willing to showcase his skills elsewhere.

"Ducati will face a tough choice regarding who will team up with Pecco, won't they?"

"Definitely," responded Pete McLaren, the MotoGP editor for "Rejecting the current frontrunner of the world championship? If they decide to do that, it will certainly be a difficult decision.

"You referred to the leading margin of 38 points. This implies that Martin will maintain his position at the forefront of the world championship, regardless of his attendance at the upcoming Catalunya race. As a result, he will continue to lead the rankings going into the Mugello event, regardless of the outcomes."

"Mugello, which serves as Ducati's home circuit, is anticipated to be the period during which the announcement regarding the rider selection is expected. It's uncertain if the choice has been finalized yet, but it's projected to be revealed around the time of the Mugello race.

"Thus, Martin is set to take the helm at the upcoming event. He's certainly making a strong case for Ducati to keep him on, isn't he?"

"Moreover, Marquez is making significant strides in the rankings and is rapidly catching up to Pecco, and he's doing it on a bike from last year. The competition we witnessed among the trio last Sunday might just become the main contest for the championship title this season."
