Marc Marquez’s Factory Ducati Dilemma: Chess Moves in MotoGP’s Tense Rider Market



"Marc Marquez joining the Ducati factory team seems unlikely in this complex 'chess game.'

"This scenario presents the most fascinating dynamics regarding the shifting of riders."

Not everyone at the race track is convinced that Marc Marquez is a guaranteed pick for the 2025 Ducati factory team.

Enea Bastianini currently holds the reins of the most sought-after motorcycle in MotoGP, yet his performance this season might secure him a prolonged tenure alongside Francesco Bagnaia, the defending champion and the standout competitor of his team.

Gresini rider Marquez and Pramac's Jorge Martin are both competing for the position alongside Bagnaia.

"Marc joining the factory Ducati squad? It just doesn't seem like a good match to me," Neil Hodgson expressed to TNT Sports.

"However, what could be the reason for them not wanting Marc to join them on their motorcycle?"

Suzi Perry responded, "They've unlocked the opportunity. They've placed Marc on a Ducati.

"Arguably, some individuals have shifted roles within Ducati due to that.

"Due to conflicting opinions among Ducati's leadership regarding whether this contradicted the essence of Ducati's operations, which involves recruiting riders."

"Marc has been recruited. Should he secure the championship with a factory Ducati…"

Hodgson responded, "What's the reason for not having him ride on your motorcycle?"

Perry remarked, "It's a fascinating chess match. It stands out as the most captivating scenario we encounter when it comes to the dynamics of rider transitions."

Hodgson questioned, "Should the factory Ducati team option not be open to him, what other choices does he have?"

"It's doubtful he'd prefer to remain with the Gresini team, riding last season's motorcycle given his current challenges, especially when the bike might not be performing at its best. But, who can say for sure?"

"Where is his destination? KTM? KTM is overflowing with skilled riders and their roster is completely filled."

Speculation suggests that KTM is keen on signing Marc, aiming to pair him with Pedro Acosta to form what many would consider an ideal lineup.

"Brad Binder currently holds a contract, yet there's a possibility of transferring him to the Tech3 GASGAS team."

"I don't envision that occurring, just so you know."

"There are numerous speculations. So, what's Marc's next destination?"

Marquez firmly stated his desire for a factory motorcycle during the Americas MotoGP for the 2025 season.

The exact location of the GP25 is currently a matter of discussion.

Gresini is keen on securing a factory-spec bike to retain their leading rider, though it seems improbable.

Both Pramac and the official team provide access to the latest motorcycle models.

Another point of contention is whether Ducati will stray from their traditional approach of developing young talent within their ranks to expedite Marquez's promotion to their premier team, possibly causing friction with Bagnaia.
