Pramac CEO Paolo Campinoti has dismissed Marc Marquez's refusal to join Ducati’s satellite MotoGP team. Notably, a few days back Marquez said that Ducati’s satellite team is "not an option for me" in 2025. 

Campinoti's team currently tops the MotoGP standings with Jorge Martin, who is expected to move to either Ducati Lenovo or another factory team. If Martin takes the official Ducati seat alongside Francesco Bagnaia, Marquez could still get a factory-spec by moving from Gresini to Pramac. 

However, Marquez rejected this idea, stating he had no interest in transferring from one satellite Ducati team to another. Now, speaking about it Parmac CEO said, "He's the one who called himself out, fortunately, we have the rider who is leading the world championship. Last year we came second in the last race and won the teams’ world championship. The problem is his, not ours.”

Additionally, Marc Marquez had said that he has three options for the 2025 season and he is keen to be in a winning team. Responding to his statements Campinoti said that his team has proven it. He said, “Marquez said he wanted to be in a winning team, I think we have proven that we are.”

“The B and C options he has don't seem to me to have won many world championships in recent years so it's his choice, not mine. I believe that the Pramac team has demonstrated in recent years… that it is a top team.”

“Honestly, the attention we are receiving both from various manufacturers and from many riders who want to come with us is confirmation of this. If someone doesn't come willingly it's their problem, not ours. We've been without Marquez for 22 years, I think we can stay there again next year..."
