Enea Bastianini

Enea Bastianini made his MotoGP debut in 2021 aboard the Desmosedici GP of team Esponsorama Racing. It didn't take long for him to adapt to the new category; in the second part of the season, he scored his first two MotoGP podiums, coming third in his two home Grands Prix held in Misano. In 2022, with the Ducati of team Gresini Racing MotoGP, the rider from Rimini was able to show off his talent. At the opening race in Qatar, Enea secured his first premier class victory, followed by three more successes in the United States, France and Aragón. Bastianini thus became one of the main protagonists in 2022, and he remained in title contention until a few races to the end of the season, which saw him closing third in the Championship overall. Thanks to these results, Enea was promoted to the factory Ducati squad for 2023 alongside reigning World Champion Francesco "Pecco" Bagnaia.

Born in Rimini in 1997, Bastianini first got on a motorcycle when he was three years and three months old and used the number 33 in his first competitions to remember that day. After taking his first steps in the Italian MiniGP Championship and distinguishing himself in several trophy series, in 2013, he took part in some races of the Italian Championship in the Moto3 category and, in the same year, he secured two victories in the Red Bull Rookies Cup.

In 2014, Enea took his first step on the world stage as he debuted in Moto3 with Fausto Gresini's Junior Team, with whom he immediately got on the podium three times and came close to victory on several occasions, earning the title of Rookie of The Year. Bastianini's first victory came the following year at his home GP in Misano, and with six podiums, he ended the season third in the standings. Enea also stayed with Team Gresini in 2016 and soon became one of the main title contenders. He closed the year as runner-up with a win and six more podiums to his credit. In 2017, Enea joined the Monlau Competición team, with which he got three podiums in the season finale. In 2018, he moved to Moto2 joining the Leopard Racing team. In his debut year in the category, the Italian rider scored five podiums right away, including a victory in the Catalan GP. In 2019, he moved over to the Italtrans Racing team, with which he became World Champion in 2020 with three wins and seven podiums. 

In 2021, Bastianini stepped up to MotoGP with the independent Ducati team Esponsorama Racing. It was a remarkable first year in the premier class for Enea as he immediately finished on the podium twice, securing two third places at the two Grands Prix held in Misano. In 2022, Enea was the protagonist of an incredible season. Aboard the Ducati GP21 of the Gresini Racing MotoGP team, he secured his first victory in MotoGP in the opening round of the season in Qatar. It will not be Bastianini's only success, as in the GP of the Americas, the rider from Rimini achieved another extraordinary victory. About a month later, in France at Le Mans, he took another sensational win at the French GP, becoming one of the main title contenders. After coming home second in the GP of San Marino and Riviera di Rimini after a heated duel with future teammate Francesco Bagnaia, Bastianini managed to get the better of the Ducati Lenovo Team rider in Aragón in a race similar to the one in Misano. With four victories overall and another second place in the Malaysian GP at Sepang, Enea secured third place in the Championship in his second year in MotoGP. In 2023, Enea will be able to count on the full support of the factory team to aim for the title agai
