Pramac Racing unveiled a largely unchanged paint scheme for the 2023 MotoGP season, with the teams pair of Desmosedici machines sporting a white and purple livery representing title sponsor Prima.
The Italian outfit revealed the livery it ran for the majority of the ’22 campaign ahead of that year’s Italian Grand Prix, one that it has elected to leave unchanged for this season – featuring Pramac’s historic white and orange colour combo along with the purple of insurance company Prima.
Pramac riders Johann Zarco and Jorge Martin were on hand to reveal their ’23 steeds, the duo gunning to return the squad to the top step of the podium having failed to score a win in ’22 – a feat that customer outfit Gresini Racing managed on four different occasions with a GP22 bike.
Pramac team principle Paolo Campinoti insisted that the operation was gunning to give “all the official teams a run for their money” this year with its pair of full-factory GP23 weapons, adding that he reckons the team has shown it’s a “true MotoGP player” across the last few seasons.
“This year’s goal is the same as what we set ourselves at the beginning of every season − being the best independent team and giving all the official teams a real run for their money!” said Campinoti.
“The last few seasons have shown the world that our team is a true MotoGP player, that our riders constantly seek top positions, and that the team members make us one of the most envied in the paddock; as team principal, I couldn’t ask for more.
“I’m proud of my guys, of what we have become, and collaboration with Prima has certainly given us an extra boost.
“We will be hitting the track soon for early season testing and I can’t wait to see what this season will bring.”
Pramac ended the ’22 term a strong fourth in the teams standings as the highest-placed independent entry, heading the likes of the Yamaha, Suzuki and Honda factory teams in the process.
Despite failing to capture a victory, Pramac managed to rack up a total of four runners-up finishes – with Martin and Zarco capturing two apiece – en-route to a seasons total of eight rostrum visits.
