“This idea has come out together with Ducati after that Mika’s bike would have remained without a rider in the box after that the Finnish has joined Ducati Marlboro Team for the next three races. Mattia has demonstrated during this season to deserve this opportunity and for these reasons we re happy and proud to have him with us even if for only one day.”

“I want to thanks Ducati, Pramac Racing and his Team Principal Paolo Campinoti who are giving me this magnificent opportunity to try their bike in Brno on Monday. It will be an important test for me as I will have the possibility to understand if I will be able to ride a MotoGP bike. I always liked difficult challenges and I am ready also for this one.”
