Racing for the Ducati Lenovo Team, Francesco will be looking to build on his six Moto GP victories. He moved to the premier class in 2019 with Pramac Racing. Despite a tough season he did manage a fourth place in Australia. 2020 and 2021 were up and down years for the Italian so 2022 is a big year for him. If he can replicate his success with consistency then he will certainly find himself in the Championship fight.
