Of all the riders pleased to see the back of 2023, Enea Bastianini was close to the top of the list. A dream move to the factory Ducati squad turned into a nightmare from round one, when he was an innocent victim in an accident that left him with a broken collarbone. More crashes, injuries and half the season missed made the year, mostly, a write-off.

Mostly? There was a brilliant win at Sepang in the antepenultimate round of the year that came from nowhere, and reminded us how relentless ‘The Beast’ can be with the bit between his teeth. It quietened questions over his suitability as Pecco Bagnaia’s teammate at Ducati’s top team, but only temporarily.

With the rider Ducati passed over for Bastianini – Jorge Martin – looking like MotoGP’s fastest racer for much of 2023, Bastianini’s season was underwhelming, but explainable. His promise gives him a pass. For now.
