Di Giannantonio had nothing to lose after Marc Marquez was announced at his replacement at Gresini Ducati with almost every other 2024 seat filled; all he did in response was storm to a maiden podium in Australia before topping that in Qatar, where his maiden win came after a ferocious fight with eventual world champion Pecco Bagnaia.

While a ride with Repsol Honda eventually went the way of Luca Marini, ‘Diggia’ landed on his feet – and on the GP23 Marini was set to ride – alongside Marco Bezzecchi. It might be a blessing in disguise for a rider who, if his late-year form becomes the norm rather than the exception, offers an intriguing sub-plot to this year’s title race.
