Borsoi responds to Marc Marquez ruling out Prima Pramac Racing switch

Prima Pramac Racing team boss Gino Borsoi spoke to DAZN and gave his assessment regarding next season

MotoGP™ silly season has been cranked up a notch at the Italian GP, with all eyes on who Ducati will pick for the ever-desired factory seat in 2025 alongside Francesco Bagnaia. Talk surrounding Marc Marquez’ (Gresini Racing MotoGP™) future has been the hot topic after the #93 created headlines on Thursday at Mugello by ruling out Prima Pramac Ducati as an option for next season.

On Friday, Prima Pramac Racing Team Manager, Gino Borsoi, discussed the situation with Spanish broadcaster DAZN: “With all due respect to Marc, who is an eight-time World Champion, we as a team have also done something historic. We have been able to win the teams’ Championship, and are a team that works very well, of which I am very proud to be a part of it, because we are a family, and we have very good values.”

As things stand heading into the Italian GP, Prima Pramac's Jorge Martin leads the MotoGP™ World Championship, and with teammate Franco Morbidelli improving after missing two pre-season tests, Borsoi highlighted how strong their 2024 campaign has been so far.

“Also, this year I think we have improved further, with Jorge leading the Championship almost from the beginning of the season and Morbidelli, who is improving every time he is on track. We are very satisfied and focused on this weekend.”

Continuing, Borsoi insists that he remains focused on the task at hand as they strive to fight for the MotoGP™ World Championship - not on the swirling rumours that are happening off-track.

“We are focused on the World Championship because we know that we have another opportunity. We have a great rider, Jorge, who is doing something historic, so at this moment this is the most important thing to us.”

Marc Marquez's stance on wanting latest-spec machinery in 2025, and ruling out a switch to Prima Pramac, also started the conversation of where Ducati might allocate their GP25s next season. Could the #93 receive one at Gresini? Borsoi shared his thoughts regarding this topic too.

“We are the team closest to Ducati, that is what I have always said, we have the official motorcycles like the ones the factory team has, and we will continue to have official motorcycles next year. It is the desired motorcycle that everyone wants to have.”

It's an unfolding story to keep your eyes on in the coming days as Ducati edge closer to choosing who will be Bagnaia's teammate in 2025.
