The Pramac team leader reveals the reality behind “rumors” of Ducati potentially withdrawing an official bike.

Gino Borsoi has provided clarity on the ongoing discussions regarding the renewal of Pramac’s partnership with Ducati.

As Pramac enters the final year of their contract as a Ducati satellite team, questions have emerged regarding the terms of a potential renewal.

Speculation arose about whether Pramac would retain the two latest-spec bikes they currently possess if a new agreement is reached.

Addressing these rumors, team manager Borsoi told GPOne: “There will always be rumors in the paddock, but it’s best to focus on the facts of our contracts.”

“We have an option with Ducati in our favor for the next two years, and we are extremely satisfied with our partnership.”

“Practically everything has already been finalized. Let’s put an end to these speculations.”

“It would take a monumental event for us to consider changing our current situation.”

Borsoi emphasized, “The contract with Ducati for the next two years includes provision for two official bikes.”

Despite narrowly missing out on the MotoGP championship in the final round of 2023 with Jorge Martin, Pramac has started the current season strongly, with Martin leading the standings after two rounds and emerging as a contender against factory Ducati rider Francesco Bagnaia.

Commenting on Martin’s impressive early-season form, Borsoi stated, “This year, we were fortunate as well because the GP24 performed admirably right from the first test, which is not always a given.”

“We implemented an important, albeit non-revolutionary upgrade, which yielded excellent results. It was a fantastic effort by Ducati, complemented by Martin’s dedicated focus on his physical and mental readiness during the winter.”

Martin is expected to enter his final season with Pramac, and his desire for a promotion to the factory team in 2025 is well-known. He has even hinted at the possibility of leaving Ducati altogether for another manufacturer if overlooked.

Ducati has officially confirmed the signing of Fermin Aldeguer, the young Moto2 standout, for the upcoming season. Aldeguer has stated that he has been assured a 2025-spec bike, although the official decision on his team placement is pending.

If Pramac indeed finalizes their agreement to continue with Ducati next year, it is anticipated that Aldeguer will find his place within their team garage.
