Michael Ruben Rinaldi: 'In 2023 I want to fight for the title' - THE INTERVIEW
Rinaldi is already thinking ahead to 2023 with the aim of getting into the title fight. Bautista is the best and wins, that's why the rivals talk about his weight and limit the Panigale V4
With two rounds to go in the Superbike World Championship, Michael Ruben Rinaldi occupies fourth position in the overall standings, 43 points ahead of Alex Lowes, 48 ahead of Andrea Locatelli and 54 ahead of Axel Bassani.
Rinaldi is therefore the first of the 'humans', the first behind the 'magnificent three' who dominated the 2022 season. He has been confirmed for another year in the official Aruba Ducati team, and at this end of the championship Michael is already thinking about the next one, with the declared aim of getting into the title fight.
We took stock of his season with him, talked about his goals for the next one, his sporting rivalry with Bassani, his outstanding team-mate, the possibility of introducing a rider/bike weight limit and the demands of some rivals to limit the performance of the Panigale V4
