2021 Vice Champion Pecco Bagnaia will continue to be with the Bologna Factory Team for two more years.

After a very successful 2021 season, it’s no surprise that the two sides have reached agreement for another two years together as Pecco looks to take his first premier class title this season. 

Pecco made his debut in MotoGP with Pramac Racing onboard a Desmosedici GP18, he showed his potential in the first half of 2020 with a podium at San Marino and leading in Emilia Romagna before crashing out. 

2021 saw Pecco improve his consistency in all conditions and once he took his maiden win at the Aragon Grand Prix in a battle against Marc Marquez, the Italian went on to win four of the last six races. 

Pecco Bagnaia – Ducati Lenovo Team

Being a Ducati rider in MotoGP has always been my dream, and knowing that I can continue with the Ducati Lenovo Team for another two seasons makes me happy and proud. I have found a serene environment in the factory team: I feel very much in tune with my team and know that we can do great things together. Now I can only concentrate on doing well in this Championship. A big thank you to Claudio, Gigi, Paolo, Davide and all the Ducati Corse staff. I’ll try to repay their trust with my results on the track!

We are delighted to have Bagnaia with us for another two seasons. Since he arrived at Ducati in 2019, Pecco has shown great talent and the ability to interpret our Desmosedici GP very well, adapting to ride it in any condition. He did it, especially in the last season, during which he had significant growth and got to play for the World Title. The way he managed the races at Aragón, Misano, Portimão and Valencia, scoring four fantastic victories, is proof of his maturity as a rider. With these great qualities, we are sure that he has the potential to aim for the title with us
