It is official: in the 2019 MotoGP season, Danilo Petrucci will ride for the Ducati Team and this represents another extraordinary achievement and source of pride for Alma Pramac Racing. It is with great satisfaction and emotion that we wish our Petrux best luck for a successful future with the official team. After Andrea Iannone, Danilo Petrucci is the second rider to wear the Ducati Team colors after working with great dedication and commitment with Pramac Racing.
It will not be easy to see Petrux come out of the door of our garage after the race in Valencia. However, we cannot help being thrilled by the certainty that the most long-lived rider in the history of our team, as well as the one who has achieved the best results, will still be in the box next door.
However, there is still a long way to go before it is time for farewell. We do not want to put pressure on you, Petrux. Just one last request: take us on the highest step of a podium in the 2018 MotoGP season. Just choose one!
