Jorge Martin: Ducati Not the Best Bike, But Yamaha!

RiderTua.com – When Jorge Martin was asked, is the Ducati the best bike on the MotoGP grid at the moment? He replied, “I don’t think the Ducati is the best bike on the grid, I think the Ducati is a super complete bike. I also don’t think at the moment there is a bike above the others (almost the same level).. But there are other bikes that have won, the one that managed to win the World Championship is Yamaha and I think the best is Yamaha,” said Martin.

The 2022 MotoGP season did not start well for the Pramac Ducati rider. Despite taking pole position in the first race of the season, the driver nicknamed the Martinator failed to finish due to a crash with Pecco Bagnaia. The two mainstay retainers had to withdraw from the race early, which did not make the Reds discouraged. They cheered when Enea Bastianini (Gresini) crossed the finish line first. For information, on his debut in the premier class last season, Martin incised 3 podiums, 4 pole positions and his first MotoGP victory at the Red Bull Ring Spielberg-Austria. For this reason, he has an ambitious target for the coming season which is to get a seat in the factory team.

“I was able to become a MotoGP world champion. Don’t know if this year, next year or next year again? But I can. I have potential and it is within my target.. Everyone knows my potential and everyone knows how far I can go. Maybe I’m not considered a candidate, but I have the potential to achieve it,” said Jorge Martin.

“Yes, it’s very clear that getting a place in the factory team is my main target, apart from the results. If we are at the front, we will be where we should be,” added the 24-year-old racer.

In an interview Jorge Martin was asked, is Ducati now the best bike on the MotoGP grid? “I don’t think it’s the best bike on the grid, I think it’s the bike super complete. This is a factory that has many good drivers, young talent who learns fast and with a high level. I don’t think at the moment there is a bike above the othersand I think this year another one is very close,” he replied.

Martin added, “But I think the teams of both engineers and mechanics that we have at Pramac and Ducati, are extraordinary and passionate. That’s why we have a bike that has improved a lot in recent years. But there were other bikes that won, the one that managed to win the World Championship was Yamaha and I think the best is Yamaha. We have to keep working and until we win the World Championship, we will not be the best bike,” said team-mate Johann Zarco that.
