Gresini Racing has unleashed the livery it will run in 2022 on its pair of Ducati GP21 MotoGP machines in its first season as an independent team since 2015.
Shown off in an online launch event, the Italian squad’s paint scheme features prominently the light blue colour shown on several occasions by Gresini since it revealed it would split from Aprilia and once again go it solo in the premier class, its riders Enea Bastianini and rookie Fabio Di Gianantonio on hand to unveil the Desmosedici’s.
The squad’s new scheme also features several red flashes as a compliment to the calmer light blue tone, the livery having been designed by Aldo Drudi.
Gresini also becomes the first team taking part in the 2022 MotoGP world championship to reveal its campaign.
Bastianini starts his sophomore MotoGP term firmly as one to watch following an impressive maiden year as reigning Moto2 world champion that culminated in a pair of rostrums at Misano towards the end of the season despite having to run a 2019-spec Ducati, leaving him 11th overall and a full 61 points ahead of team-mate Luca Marini.
Di Gianantonio meanwhile make the step up into the premier class following three years in Moto2 with Speed Up and latterly the Gresini outfit, the Italian enjoying his strongest run in 2021 as he scored a first victory at Jerez en-route to seventh in the final riders classification.
