One of the announcements that risks shaking the transfer market concerns the rider who will be lined up alongside Francesco Bagnaia at Ducati in 2025. While Enea Bastianini is having a sparkling start to the season, currently occupying third place in the championship with two podiums on the clock, many drivers covet his seat.

Among the main contenders for the second factory Ducati handlebar, Jorge Martín is biding his time, and has already announced that he is ready to leave the brand, if it does not offer him a place in the factory team.

On the other hand, Marc Marquez, who has impressed since leaving Honda for Gresini, is becoming more and more acclimated to the Desmosedici GP, and has already shown himself to be threatening on several occasions this season against Francesco Bagnaia. Like their collision in Portugal, and more recently their memorable duel for victory in Jerez during the Spanish Grand Prix.

Questioned on the subject, Danilo Petrucci did not hesitate to answer that he saw the second mentioned as the number 1 candidate to support Bagnaia at Ducati next year.

"I don't have any inside information, but I have a feeling it will be Marquez, assures the Italian in the columns of GPOne. Dall'Igna is not going to let a driver like Márquez escape.

He led Ducati to victory because he is ruthless in his working method, in the sense that he pursues his goal relentlessly. This is why he made Ducati the reference for MotoGP. Knowing his way of thinking, I think Gigi wants to find out what a rider like Márquez can do on his bike." concludes Petrucci.
