Michele Pirro to ride with Pramac Racing at the Italian GP

The Ducati test rider comes in as cover for the injured Jorge Martin, with Mugello coming too soon for the rookie to return

On Thursday afternoon, Jorge Martin (Pramac Racing) was subjected to a series of check-ups by the medical team that has cared for him since his accident in Portimao and subsequent surgeries. Despite having noted that the healing process is proceeding positively, the doctors advised Martin against returning for the Italian GP, considering the tough and demanding nature of the Italian circuit.

For this reason, in agreement with the Pramac Racing Team and Ducati, the Spanish rider has decided to postpone his return until the Catalunya Grand Prix.

Therefore, Ducati test rider Michele Pirro will wear the Pramac Racing colours with Johann Zarco in the Italian Grand Prix.
