Ducati, in love with Martín

After his victory and third place in Austria, Gigi Dall'Igna says of the Madrilenian in AS that "he is a boy who does the impossible, and very showy".


Before attending AS for a few minutes in the Red Bull Ring paddock, Gigi Dall'Igna consoling Enea Bastianini in the back room of the Ducati box, whose left side fairing had flown in the middle of the Austria 2 race and was forced to abandon . When the head of the Borgo Panigale brand finished his talk, he started another with this newspaper with Jorge Martín as the main center of the conversation. He is seen to be in love with 'Martinator'.

From the Spanish, the Italian says that "he is a boy who does the impossible, and very showy", to later deepen: "He is a pilot that we have always wanted to have with us, from the beginning. Honestly, we believed in him a lot and he is doing much better than what would be normal for a rookie in MotoGP. We are very happy that he is with us. "

Dall'Igna is clear about the greatest virtue he sees in the Madrid-born San Sebastián de los Reyes: "What is incredible is that at any moment he is capable of putting himself to the limit of his possibilities to do well. In Portimao he should have been a little calmer, because it was only his third MotoGP GP and there, with the accident, he understood that it is not always necessary to test all laps one hundred percent, and now he is doing fantastic ".

Recovered from the injuries of the hard accident in Portugal, with which he suffered several fractures in his arms and legs, Martín has chained two poles, a victory and a third place in the Austrian double event. The latter was in a crazy race, the first flag to flag for the Pramac Ducati, and Gigi loved his management in difficult and new conditions for him: "It was not easy to manage the situation well in these conditions, and he has done it. It is not only a question of talent, because the head is also very important ".

Surprising outcome

Regarding the race in Austria 2, won by Brad Binder, with Francesco Bagnaia second and Martín third, the Italian confesses the surprise that the outcome brought him: "I thought none of them was going to enter and I was quite surprised when five did of the six leading. There were only four laps to go and losing 30 seconds in the bike change should normally be lethal for the victory. It was raining so much at some points that many riders decided to enter ".

And to finish off with Martín, when asked if he will ever see him in the official Ducati box now occupied by Bagnaia and Jack Miller, he says: "He has full support from the factory. Probably yes, but it depends on him and the others. pilots. We always want the best in the official team ".
