Jorge Martin has not yet been announced as a Ducati factory rider, but that announcement is expected. His intentions are quite specific: to enter the battle for the MotoGP title in the next couple of years!
On his road to success, the Madrid native is in a good position: he started his career in the Royal Class, immediately impressing everyone with his style and his ambition for the highest achievements; then, he had a big bummer and an injury, a series of operations; but now he is one step away from moving to the Ducati factory garage, and his candidacy is number 1 on the list. He’s only in his 2nd year in MotoGP, which means his time is ahead, in 2023.
Ducati’s riders Bastianini, Bagnaia, and Martin were among the invitees at the Aragon Grand Prix presentation over the weekend, with Dorna Sports president Carmelo Ezpeleta keeping them company, indicating high expectations for September’s stage at Motorland.
“In the short and medium-term, I hope to win the world championship,” said Jorge Martin. – It’s always been a goal in my life, and I’m focused on achieving it. This year we didn’t start out quite the way we wanted to. But this is only my second year in the category, and I’m still learning a lot. My goal is to recover 100% from all the surgeries and come back in the second half of the season to finish on a high note. And then, whether it’s with the factory team or Pramac, I want to go for the title. I’m sure we can do that.”
