Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco will remain at Pramac Ducati in 2022, as the silly season continues to unfold.
Just a day after Remy Gardner was confirmed to ride for Tech3 KTM in 2022, Pramac secured their riders for next year’s campaign. The lineup will be unchanged from this year with Moto2 graduate Martin joining veteran Zarco on the Ducati satellite team for next year.
Paulo Campinoti, the Pramac team principal, said of the signing: “We are very satisfied to be able to continue on this project with Johann and Jorge, two boys with whom we get along very well and with whom we are reaching excellent results. Both Ducati and ourselves firmly believe in their abilities; we couldn’t be happier.”
Both riders will race on the Desmosedici GP22 bike next year, it has also been confirmed.
Paulo Ciabatti, the sporting director of Ducati, said: “Johann and Jorge this year have inserted themselves very well in the Pramac Racing team. For this reason, together with Paolo Campinoti and Francesco Guidotti, we have decided to proceed with them into 2022. We will put at the disposition of both, the official bikes for next season as well. We are certain that they will provide us with many satisfactions.”
Zarco is second in the MotoGP World Championship coming into Barcelona this weekend as Martin is expected to make his racing return after recovering from injuries sustained in the Portuguese Grand Prix in April.
