Gresini Racing continues within the #GresiniFamily and, with immediate effect, will see the official involvement of Nadia Padovani – Fausto’s wife – as the new CEO of the Faenza-based company. Nadia takes over Fausto’s role completely, therefore getting both Team Owner and Team Principal titles.
This is not the only news, as their sons Lorenzo and Luca will also be protagonists, with the former who will be involved in the administrative part of the company, while the latter will have more of a sporting role and will already be present at Jerez with the team.
With the whole family on board to give continuity to the company, Fausto’s secret wish to return to MotoGP™ as an independent team will become a reality from 2022, as expected by the contract signed with Dorna at the end of last season.
Nadia Padovani (Gresini Racing Team Owner & Team Principal): “I would like to think that Fausto’s two families – ours and the racing one – have joined their efforts to bring forward everything he was planning, and especially the MotoGP™. To have an independent team in the premier class is surely something very demanding, with a team to be built from scratch, but I know everyone in the company is giving their 110% to make his dream come true. Personally, I see it as a real mission, a challenge we will face – also and above all – thanks to the strength of Fausto, who is following us from above. We’re currently speaking with several manufacturers and in a matter of few weeks we will reveal the details of our MotoGP™ project.”
