Afterwards Ducati wants to make the decision who will switch to the factory team next year. Francesco Bagnaia's teammate is to be presented at the home race in Misano in early September.

Bastianini won three races in the current season. The Italian is fourth with 118 points. Martin stood twice as the podium. He has collected 81 points and is a World Cup elder. The Spaniard also had several failures.

In addition, Martin had a struggle with an old injury and also had to be operated on in the right hand. That is why Ducati moved the decision to the end of August to give both drivers more time to present themselves.

"If I had finished the races in the positions I had when I fell, then I would be in the top 4 in the championship. So my realistic position is not where I stand. But I will pick up and think, think, Our strengths are still coming. " In retrospect,

was a sticking point his severe fall in Portimao in the previous year when he suffered several injuries. Martin therefore missed a total of four races. Hand surgery in this early summer was also a episode of that time.

That changed him: "Yes, I'm now more afraid of falls and I am more respect for injuries. This is a change that I feel when I drive. I always have a security pad. Also helped me to think more rational before I do something. "
