The Madrid driver will occupy the place left by Aleix Espargaró due to his retirement. That is to say, that Jorge Martín leaves the race for wearing red on Ducati , the goal that he pursued for so many years, and that he leans in favor of Marc Márquez.

Monday, June 3, in the aftermath of the 2024 Italian GP , ​​held in Mugello, is the day that Aprilia and Jorge Martín have chosen to communicate their agreement . The rider will be the replacement for Aleix Espargaró after leaving the Ducati factory at the end of the World Championship.

In fact, Aleix himself appears in the video published by Aprilia to announce Jorge’s signing. Massimo Rivola , the team’s sports director, introduces Martín with Espargaró opening the door.

Jorge Martín has not achieved the goal that he has been pursuing for years, being the one chosen by Ducati to wear red alongside Bagnaia , current MotoGP World Champion. Of course, Martinator still has the opportunity to be champion with Prima Pramac, which would be a finishing touch to his time with the satellite team.

And the situation has changed radically in recent days. It seemed that Martín was the one chosen to join the official factory team . However, it seems that the game has fallen on the side of Marc Márquez, who different media places as Bagnaia’s next teammate.

Jorge Martín , who will embark on his adventure with Aprilia at the age of 27 (he turns in January 2025), is one of the most prominent riders on the current MotoGP grid , so this move has important consequences.

The first, before Ducati announces anything, is that the Italian brand has not managed to retain the three reference riders of the championship in its structure : Bagnaia (under contract); Márquez, recovering sensations with Gresini; and Jorge himself, the only one of the three who is not a champion and who seemed the favorite to wear red.

Martín will have the great opportunity to take the motorcycling crown in this 2024 World Championship, his farewell to Pramac and Ducati, so it will be an opportunity that he does not know when he will have again. Will Aprilia be able to give him the tools to battle Bagnaia and his teammate from 2025 onwards?

Aprilia gives details about Jorge Martín’s role: “He is a fundamental piece to achieve the goal that we all seek”

Aprilia will count on Jorge Martín as a replacement for Aleix Espargaró , who has helped the team find its next star rider. Martinator arrives with a very clear objective that, despite not being mentioned in the signing statement, is the goal of Martín and Aprilia.

” A path of unstoppable growth, Jorge is a fundamental piece to achieve the goal that we all hunger for at Aprilia Racing ,” explains Massimo Rivola in Aprilia’s official statement.

Martín arrives at Aprilia to be the team’s new number one rider ahead of Maverick Viñales who has not yet achieved consistency on the bike . In fact, Maverick still does not have a contract for next season, although his continuity is assumed.

Jorge and Aprilia’s goal? Fight with the Ducati and get fully into the battle for the MotoGP World Championship , a title that both rider and team want to achieve.
