VR46 Ducati MotoGP boss Alessio Salucci has confirmed that the squad is looking to Moto2 to replace the outgoing Luca
In an interview with MotoGP.com, Salucci confirmed that Marini will likely leave the Valentino Rossi-owned team and join the factory Repsol Honda outfit for the 2024 season. The team is currently searching for a young Moto2 rider to replace Marini, with Fermin Aldeguer and Tony Arbolino being the top contenders. Di Gianantonio, who lost his seat to Honda rider Marc Marquez, is not being considered. Salucci expressed the difficulty of losing a rider like Marini and the need to discuss with different teams. The team is working hard to get ready for testing with both drivers, but not having both drivers in the test is a possibility.
