“After more than a decade of partnership with Gresini Racing, it seems that it is not difficult to decide to continue this family in the form of this commitment to a higher level, namely MotoGP. Good relations have existed since the beginning when the late Fausto Gresini is still with us even today. This is through Nadia and Carlo,” said Patrick in a press statement, Saturday (20/11/2021).
“We hope that this good partnership will continue in the years to come and of course it must be able to provide benefits for both parties, especially since Indonesia has a fan base that is quite fanatical in MotoGP and next year will be even more special with the presence of the Mandalika Circuit. Therefore, we believe that Federal Oil, as a brand that has been present in Indonesia for more than 33 years, together with Gresini Racing in the MotoGP class can make Indonesia even more proud,” added Patrick.
