The Bugatti Circuit, which is situated approximately 200 km (124 miles) from the City of Lights, has hosted the French Grand Prix since 1969, when Giacomo Agostini topped the 500cc class. Last modified in 2008, the track is currently 4.185 km long (2600 miles) and rather narrow, with several slow hairpins that riders approach hard on the brakes.
The Pramac Racing team would like to thank Ducati and Michele for their cooperation.
Michele Pirro – Ignite Pramac Racing Team “I’m happy to have this opportunity. This weekend I’ll use the same bike that Ben would have used. I’m sorry for him because I know he’s struggling due to his shoulder injury, and since MotoGP bikes are very physical, if you’re not truly fit, riding is difficult. I hope to do my best and to repay the trust that the guys from the team and Ducati have placed in me. We’re really working hard.”
