Ducati Lenovo Team's Enea Bastianini believes he is better equipped to challenge for the title this season as he has a "solid base" going into the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday, April 28.
The Italian is second in the riders' standings and trails Prima Pramac Racing's Jorge Martin by 21 points after finishing on the podium in two of the opening three races.
Bastianini claimed a P5 in the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix and followed it up with a P2 in the Portuguese Grand Prix and a P3 in the Grand Prix of the Americas.

It is in stark contrast to last year when the 26-year-old rider sustained injuries in Portimao and Montmelo, which forced him to miss seven races and he was never comfortable on the new Desmosedici GP23.
However, 'The Beast' feels he has found the right balance in his second season with Ducati Lenovo Team to be able to push his rivals, including team-mate Francesco Bagnaia, who only has one podium in 2024.

"For me, last year has been very, very strange because my feeling with the bike was strange and also I crashed in the first race. After my injury, my adaptation to the bike was so complicated," Bastianini said.
"And also it was new because my crew chief was new and the team was new. You have to have a balance; if you know this, you can do something more.
"This year we started with the right foot in the test and we worked very well. I put many laps in Malaysia and also in Qatar to be consistent during the season.
"And in the end we have a solid base now and I think for the future we can fight always for a good position."
