Pramac Ducati unveils 2022 MotoGP livery

Pramac Racing Ducati has unveiled its new livery for the 2022 MotoGP season ahead of the first pre-season test at Sepang.

Pramac Ducati is the latest MotoGP team to reveal its 2022 color scheme, with the Italian team revealing their Desmosedici in an online launch.

The 2022 season marks a significant change for the team, following the appointment of Claudio Calabresi as its new Team Manager-following the departure of Francesco Guidotti to KTM at the end of last season.

Compared to the largely red design of 2021, the red, white, and blue design has been changed, with each color given its equal portion of space. The black on the wings has been replaced with blue, as has the black on the belly pan. The rider’s leathers, which have streaks of red, blue, and white, have also been altered to reflect the new design.

Johann Zarco and 2021 rookie prodigy Jorge Martin have been retained by Pramac Racing for the 2022season. The satellite Ducati team had a fantastic season last year, with Martin claiming his and the team’s first MotoGP victory in Austria.

“The expectations are bigger, the bike is a bit different and at the last test we have a lot of new parts so we need to try and establish a good base,” said Jorge Martin.

“The target is to finish in the top four or five, so it’s an important year and I look forward to trying really hard.”

Despite missing four races due to severe fractures in his hands and right ankle sustained in a crash at Portimao, the Spaniard took four podiums and four poles in total.

On the other hand, Zarco has had a great and steady start to the season, finishing second in four of the first seven races. In each of the final three races, the Frenchman finished inside the top six, but a difficult middle half of the season cost him the championship. He finished the year in sixth place overall.

“I think I’ve learnt again that the season is pretty long, in 2020 we had a shorter season with Covid (19) and in 2021 we had a more normal season with 17 races,” Zarco explained.

“and with that many you can start really well and have a fantastic first half but then if you struggle in five races then it’s like you missed the season.”

“It’s a good lesson to help me focus even harder for 2022,” he concluded.

Pramac Racing concluded the 2021 MotoGP Championship as the best independent team and fourth overall in the teams’ standings. Each rider will compete on a Desmocedici GP22, and Pramac Racing will continue to receive full factory support from Ducati this year.
