The probably demise of Esponsorama Racing from MotoGP in 2022 threatens Enea Bastianini’s place. The Italian must present himself in his first 12 months to maintain his handlebars within the class.
At 23, Enea Bastianini is likely one of the 4 rookies within the 2021 MotoGP World Championship. The Italian drives the Desmosedici GP20 of the Avintia Esponsorama Racing group, the place he was positioned by Ducati, producer with whom he signed his contract. This was formalized in September 2020, a couple of weeks earlier than he turned Moto2 world champion.
With a couple of exceptions named Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez or Fabio Quartararo, being aggressive in MotoGP normally takes time. Time to adapt to the machine, the tires, the brakes and all the pieces there’s to find. That is even more true when it occurs with the Ducati, a much less normal and “simple” to journey motorbike than a Yamaha, for instance. And we’re speaking about MotoGP, the supreme class of motorbike sport the place the quickest riders on the planet evolve. Time is simply what Enea Bastianini would possibly run out of.
His group, Avintia Esponsorama Racing, is anticipated to be out of MotoGP competition subsequent 12 months. The Andorran construction intends to retire, and is destined to get replaced by SKY Racing Staff VR46, which has already set foot within the class through Luca Marini, team-mate of Enea Bastianini. The 2 males put on completely different colours, though they’re a part of the identical construction.
Half-brother of Valentino Rossi, Luca Marini can due to this fact face the close to future with a sure serenity: even when he misses his first MotoGP marketing campaign, this shall be put right down to the inexperience and the difference essential to the class, and he’ll have the ability to proceed with the SKY VR46 in 2022. Who will he have as a teammate? It’s probably that one other VR46 Riders Academy rider, like Marco Bezzecchi, contender for the Moto2 World Championship this 12 months, shall be positioned alongside him.
Enea Bastianini shouldn’t be a part of the VR46 Riders Academy. In different phrases, it’s not written in stone that he’ll proceed at SKY VR46 if his present group, Avintia Esponsorama, leaves on the finish of 2021. He’s due to this fact pressured to carry out from 2021 with a purpose to persuade the managers MotoGP sportsmen that he deserves his place.
