Francesco Bagnaia Of Ducati Confirmed As MotoGP World Champion
Ducati once again shows off its prowess as it takes the MotoGP championship
History repeats itself as the Italian duo of Francesco Bagnaia and the Desmosedici GP of the Ducati Lenovo Team won the MotoGP World Title for the second year in a row, leading the final standing ahead of two other Ducati riders, Jorge Marton of Pramac Racing Team and Marco Bezzecchi of the VR46 Racing Team.
The all-Ducati podium in MotoGP crowns a record season for the brand, which achieved victories in all the main World Championships on two wheels and Bagnaia’s magnificent confirmation in MotoGP, as well as Alvaro Bautista’s defence of his title in WorldSBK and Nicolo Bulega’s first success in WorldSSP are the demonstration of a clear philosophy, that is in Borgo Panigale the desire to improve has no limits.
Moreover, the common thread that unites all the successes of Ducati Corse’s racing season lies in the engineering excellence that has led the Desmosedici GP, Panigale V4 R and Panigale V2 to be the best motorcycles on the grid in their respective championships.
No other motorcycle manufacturer before Ducati has ever been able to win both the Riders’ and Constructors’ World Titles in MotoGP and WorldSBK for two seasons in a row. For the brand, the only non-Japanese manufacturer capable of winning a World Championship in MotoGP, this is the third Riders’ Title in its history, while the number of Superbike World Titles won by riders from Borgo Panigale is 16.
On top of that, the MotoGP 2023 season tells of a notable technical supremacy of Ducati bikes, which have rewritten some significant records of the most important two-wheel World Championship.
One such example is the highest number of overall victories in a single season (17 Grand Prix out of 20) and the record for the highest number of different riders capable of winning at least one Grand Prix (6, namely, Bagnaia, Bastianini, Bezzecchi, Di Giannantonio, Martin, Zarco).
