As Francesco Bagnaia is ready to contend for another MotoGP world championship, Ducati, the current champion, has unveiled its 2024 season livery, which features few changes. In 2023, Ducati won the constructors' title in MotoGP and set a new record for unmatched dominance with 17 of 20 Grand Prix victories. Bagnaia, who broke Ducati's 15-year title drought in 2022, won the riders' championship for the second year in a row after a thrilling season-ending showdown with Jorge Martin of Pramac.

During the winter reorganisation at Ducati, Paolo Ciabatti, who had previously served as sporting director, was promoted to head up the off-road programme for the Italian brand in 2024. After a stint in charge of marketing, communications, and racing for Ducati Corse in MotoGP, Mauro Grassilli has taken over as sporting director.

Ducati has made improvements to the bike in an effort to stay ahead of the competition, even though the team had an outstanding result last year. Francesco Bagnaia plans to win the championship for the third year in a row, while Enea Bastianini hopes to have a healthy season and have a significant effect on the competition.

For the second year running, Enea Bastianini and Francesco Bagnaia will be the factory team's driving duo. Bagnaia won the championship last season after a tight fight with Jorge Martín (Prima Pramac/Ducati), while Bastianini managed to pull off a significant victory while dealing with injuries.

Injuries plagued Bastianini's first year with the Works Ducati squad, and his role was questioned as the season progressed. Despite all the obstacles, Bastianini managed to win a grand prix in 2023—the Malaysian GP—and add to Ducati's historic 17-win season total.

To help out struggling Japanese manufacturers, Ducati agreed on these concession constraints. With the new season upon us, the Italian brand is facing even more difficulties as a result of the concession requirements. There will be no wildcard entries for Ducati in 2024, and the Italian manufacturer can only use 170 test tyres for private races at three Grand Prix circuits. There is a cap of eight engines per rider and a halt to engine development. In addition, the Ducati is limited to a single aerodynamic fairing upgrade.
