Marini: Pecco "showed his muscles" in the tests to gain a better position in negotiations with Ducati

Francesco Bagnaia was the best in both pre-season tests. He even improved the official track record in both Sepang and Qatar, which suggests that he will be the main contender to win the world championship again this year. This would be his third in a row.

All his competitors also agree that the Italian is the one to beat.

An interesting statement was made by Luca Marini at the end of the tests in Qatar. In this, he referred to the fact that Bagnaia has not yet renewed his contract with Ducati and that he should increase his bargaining power with the results of the testing. Like most racers, his contract expires at the end of this season.

"I think that Pecco was particularly motivated at this year's tests, because he expects that after good results he will have better conditions in negotiations with Ducati. There will definitely be an extension, now he just wants to make more money."
