Ducati Team has officially kicked off today with the presentation of the two Ducati Panigale V4 R machines of Scott Redding and Michael Ruben Rinaldi.
The British riders are in their second season with Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team. After they had fought for the World Championship title until the final round in 2020. For Rinaldi, there is fresh from an excellent season in which he scored his first WorldSBK victory at Motorland Aragón. This could also be considered as a comeback after winning with the Aruba Junior Team the 2017 Superstock 1000 Championship Title.
The whole Ducati team was the leading character of the intense video that was traced the bikes’ assembly phases before exiting the pit lane for an ideal grid alignment. They had the original signatures of Stefano Cecconi CEO Aruba S.p.A. and Team Principal Aruba. it Racing – Ducati, Claudio Domenicali CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, Luigi Dall’Igna General Manager of Ducati Corse, Paolo Ciabatti Ducati Corse Sporting Director, and Daniele Casolari Team Owner Feel Racing too.
This video was filmed at Misano World Circuit, which is going to be the host of the second round of the 2021 WorldSBK Championship, in mid-June. But that would be after the season opener at Aragón at the end of May.
Commenting on this, Stefano Cecconi (CEO Aruba S.p.A. and Team Principal Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) said, “Since 2015, we have officially represented Ducati in the Superbike World Championship, and our results have grown steadily to the second and third place obtained with Scott and Chaz last season. Our goal is to take that final step forward to reach the target we have set ourselves since the beginning of this adventure. After last year’s surprising debut, in 2021, we expect Redding to bring out his full potential. On the other hand, Rinaldi has had a long journey, including winning the Superstock 1000 title. It is a great satisfaction for us to see him in the factory team, and in light of his extremely convincing season with a private team in 2020, we hope he can do even better this year. I want to wish the team and the riders the best of luck for this season which, given the moment we’re experiencing, won’t be easy from a logistical point of view. Finally, my thoughts go out to all the fans: in the first few races, they probably won’t be able to be with us at the track, and we will certainly miss them. However, we’re sure that they will follow us from home, giving us all the warmth and affection that they have always given us over the years”.
