Ducati must be able to take advantage of the momentum to win the world title this year. Because if not, next season Ducati will be in trouble because its competitors are getting stronger. Especially Yamaha.
Ducati now has the upper hand. Its flagship racer, Francesco Bagnaia, has won four times in a row in the Netherlands, England, Austria, and also in his home country of Italy.
Blessing winstreak Inscribed, now Bagnaia is getting closer to the leader of the standings, Fabio Quartararo. Pecco – as he is known – is only 30 points away from Quartararo.

With the 2022 MotoGP race only six series remaining, Bagnaia must always finish ahead of Quartararo so that he can get closer to the world title.
If Bagnaia loses that momentum, it will be even more difficult for him to chase the 2023 MotoGP title. Because the Yamaha bike has received several updates that make it even more fierce on the straights.
Citing page Tuttomotoriweb, Yamaha with Quartararo will be a scary package for next season’s race. The results of the Misano tests on September 6 and 7 have shown the El Diablo’s potential with a new fairing and a prototype Yamaha YZR-M1 2023 engine.
Quartararo with the 2023 M1 was not only the fastest on the second day of the test, but also managed to get close to the performance of the Ducati motorcycle. The French racer was able to achieve a top speed of 298 km/h or 4-5 km/h faster than the top speed inscribed during Sunday’s race. Fabio Quartararo also recorded the absolute best time with a score of 1’31″054.
Yamaha will not only be scary in the 2023 season with its new engine, but also for the final race of the season, considering the new fairing will be installed in MotoGP Aragon. Now Yamaha’s problem of top speed on the straights has begun to be solved, while stability in the corners is better than Ducati’s.
Quartararo is probably the strongest rider at the moment, even if Pecco has come close to his level at this stage of the championship. Therefore, Ducati should not miss this opportunity, because next year Ducati may no longer have the technical advantage it currently has.
