Maximum concentration will be imperative for the last two races to be contested.

“Sincere congratulations to Yamaha for the well-deserved title, Fabio Quartararo distinguished himself for his talent and unflagging regularity, always attaining high-level results and making the least mistakes in comparison with the rest of the field. Ours was a test probably conditioned by the hard front tyre choice: an option that presented risks given the temperature of the air, but which was certainly the most high performing. As for Pecco, considering his riding style and the result he had to aim for, it was the best decision; I defend this decision and would make it again. For Jack instead, it was a solution that, with hindsight, I frankly consider mistaken. Maximum concentration will be imperative for the last two races to be contested. We have to strive for the manufacturers’ classification as well as honouring our work to the utmost, respecting the commitment always lavished by the men and women of Ducati Corse, whom I thank profusely as of now. Bastianini’s magnificent podium deserves special applause: a future that for our team is already a reality. And finally, a very special thought goes to Valentino and his extraordinary career, in this that was his last Grand Prix in Italy.”
