“This was a fun test, quite happy driving the fast GP23. However, of course there are several differences with the GP22. The character is fast, the driving point is not the same compared to the GP22. We have to improve the settings and pay attention to several aspects of my driving style, such as when entering corner with the brake and a touch of gas,” explained Marco Bezzecchi.

“I have to get used to it, but I’m satisfied. And after this comes the holidays! This is indeed a time that all of us team members deserve. Together with VR46, I and all of our team members have done an extraordinary job in 2023,” he said .

“I managed to ride fast, both tires can function optimally and make progress. From a technical point of view, the GP23 is different, but there is something that feels similar to the GP22. We need time to make it perfect until it reaches the speed at the top limit ,” he continued.

In the same vein, Marco Bezzecchi, who will be healing, after completing the trial portion of Diggia will also do the same thing, namely taking a year-end holiday.
