Hold onto your helmets, folks! As we discussed earilier, Marc Marquez, our eight-time champion, decided to switch things up and separated with Honda after long cooperation. He joined forces with Gresini Ducati and Valencia tests was the first time on the totally new bike. The guy’s debut was like fireworks on two wheels, landing him in the fourth spot and sending shockwaves through the MotoGP world. Even Bagnaia gave him a nod, saying, “He can be very happy with the bike. We did a wonderful job with this bike all season, and he can enjoy it.” What’s more, Marquez’s teammate and brother, Alex Marquez, too applauded the thunderous arrival of Marc on the Ducati scene.

Get ready for a showdown in 2024 because Marquez is gunning for it, and the MotoGP community is revved up for some nail-biting action. Rivals are probably huddled up, sipping coffee, and strategizing on how to match up with the Ducati’s new weapon, Marc. Bring it on, I say!

Bagnaia’s first date with the GP24 was a match made in motorcycle heaven. Feeling smooth and zippy on the new bike, he’s all set to fine-tune the small stuff and stay ahead of the game. The reigning champ said, “Starting like this is the best way.” You do you, Bagnaia! We’re cheering you on!
