To this end, the choice to race in full SBK configuration, despite the fact that EVO bikes will homogenize the grid next year, was somewhat met with skepticism. "We want to be able to develop our WSBK bike during race weekends, and the EVO class wouldn't have allowed us to do that," Castiglioni explained. "The data we gather will help us to improve our F4 bike and lay the basis for its heir, which I think you'll see in a couple of years. Anyhow, I wanted to give it a shot. It's better to face the risk of failure than the remorse of not having tried something."
