Enea Bastianini ruled out of the French Grand Prix, with World Superbike rider set to replace him

After withdrawing from the Spanish Grand Prix due to injury Enea Bastianini will be replaced by Danilo Petrucci at the French Grand Prix next weekend.

After getting injured at the opening MotoGP round of the season in Portimao, Enea Bastianini is yet to compete in a MotoGP race since. The Italian rider tried to make a comeback in Jerez but it was not to be after pulling out on the Saturday morning after struggling too much with his injury.

As his recovery has not been as quick as he and Ducati had hoped they have decided to replace him once again for the French Grand Prix. However, this time Ducati are not going for their usual replacement rider of test rider Michelle Pirro, but instead are using Danilo Petrucci.


Petrucci has ridden for Ducati before in MotoGP between 2015 and 2020, since then Petrucci has raced for Ducati in MotoAmerica and is currently racing onboard a Ducati in World Superbikes.

The 32-year-old has been a race winner before for Factory Ducati around Le Mans in MotoGP and the Italian manufacturer will be calling upon the Italians MotoGP experience once again.
