Marini is one of eight current MotoGP riders competing at the VR46 Motor Ranch in Tavullia this weekend, including newly crowned world champion Francesco Bagnaia, who is sporting the #1 plate.

“I think I've won another ham or sausage, which is always nice to have in winter!” Marini said of his victory ‘prize’.

”Jokes aside, it’s always a great emotion, and it's nice to confirm myself every year.

“Today's ‘Americana race’ was very tough because every Saturday at the Ranch the level rises more and more."
