Ducati Lenovo Team Is Back At Sepang For The First 2024 Pre-Season Test
Let’s see how far the Ducati Lenovo team goes in Sepang this 2024
After the Campioni in Pista event and the team presentation at Madonna di Campiglio (Italy), Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini are now ready to hit the track at Sepang for the first three days of pre-season testing, scheduled from 6 to 8 February 2024at the Malaysian circuit.
This is the same track that will host the Malaysian GP in November, where test rider Michele Pirro participated in the ‘shakedown’ from 1 to 3 February 2024. Thanks to mostly stable weather conditions, the rider from San Giovanni Rotondo could conduct several tests on the Desmosedici GP, try new components, and initiate the development work.
Moreover, it is now up to the factory riders to continue the work over the next three days of testing at Sepang. So are you guys excited to see the Ducati Lenovo team back in action? I am and I can’t wait to see what else the team achieves in its run this time. Do you think the team can go all the way?
Francesco Bagnaia (#1, Ducati Lenovo Team) also said, “I’ve missed my Desmosedici GP during this winter break, so I’m thrilled to finally be back on track at Sepang for the first test of 2024. The last test at Valencia last year provided positive feedback, and Michele has already put in some work in these three days.”
“I expect to find a good base on which to continue developing the new bike. We have three demanding but also crucial days ahead of us. Hopefully, the weather will allow us to take full advantage of all the available time.” He added.
On top of that, “I’m thrilled to be back. Throughout the winter, I’ve dedicated myself to reaching the right physical condition before the Sepang test. Last week, I was also in Portimão with fellow Ducati riders, training with my Panigale V4S, and now I’m ready!” said Enea Bastianini (#23, Ducati Lenovo Team).
He concluded with, “In the Valencia test, I received positive feedback, and I immediately took a liking to the new bike. Here, we’ll try with some new items, but overall, I’m confident. These three days are crucial, and I’ll be putting in a lot of hard work.”
The factory Ducati Lenovo Team riders have already hit the track for the first day of testing at Sepang on Monday, 5 February 2024 where they will have eight uninterrupted hours on the track, starting at 10:00am local time. Let’s hope this helps them a lot.
