“I don’t want to talk about expectations or goals. We just want to start well from Friday on a track where I struggled a bit with my Ducati Panigale V4R three years ago. Now, however, the conditions are different: I know the tires and the bike, which has made a significant step forward compared to the 2019 machine. I just want to focus on getting the best possible result, also with the idea of having fun, without thinking about the difficulties that this circuit can present us.”
