The Inside Story Behind Pramac's Selection of Franco Morbidelli

Franco Morbidelli’s MotoGP career was saved by an impending switch to Pramac Ducati coming season.

Morbidelli will face the dismissal from his Yamaha seat at the end of this season, after months of dubieties about his position, but any solicitude over his future has now been soothed.

But although Morbidelli retains a strong character for his once accomplishments there’s another behind- the- scenes reason that he was named.

Prima, a major insurance company who finance the Pramac platoon, specifically wanted an Italian rider, Speedweek report.

The exit of Johann Zarco from the Pramac seat opened a vacancy alongside Jorge Martin and Prima tasted an occasion to strengthen the Italian presence within the Italy- grounded platoon.

Morbidelli, one of four graduates from Valentino Rossi’s VR46 Academy on the current MotoGP grid, thus shot to the front of the line.

He indeed edged out the possibility of Marc Marquez arriving at Pramac- rather, the star Honda rider is likely to move to Gresini Ducati.

For Morbidelli his 2024 switch represents the inconceivable occasion to change one of the worst bikes on the grid for the stylish.

He’ll profit from a rearmost- spec Desmosedici at Pramac and will hope for a revivification of his peak, which saw him finish the 2020 season as runner- up.
