Bastianini and Marini unveil their 2021 machines

Luca Marini: “I can’t wait to start this new season with the Sky VR46 Avintia: It has been difficult to wait all these months without being able to test the Ducati at the end of November as in a normal season. I’ve spent the whole winter wondering what the first day of testing would be like. With the support of the Academy, I am training very hard to be physically and mentally ready. There will be many things to learn and discover, I will work concentrated to grow and adapt to the new category as quickly as possible and obtain results that are better and better. Although at the same time I want to enjoy my first year in MotoGP: It will be a special moment in my life. I would like to thank Ducati and Sky Racing Team VR46 for their trust, and to be able to return that trust placed in me with my potential, hoping that our relationship will develop in the best way in the years to come.”
