Pecco Bagnaia is aiming for the MotoGP world title: Ducati guarantees maximum support to its top rider.
Ducati one step away from the world title, or rather two. There are many points that divide the Yamaha leader Fabio Quartararo from the top driver Pecco Bagnaia, able to recover almost ninety points in the middle of the championship. An impressive roadmap, the only hitch being the crash on the last lap of the Motegi Grand Prix, where he threw away precious points that would have allowed him to be currently at the top of the standings.
On the Buriram circuit Pecco Bagnaia he immediately showed his maturity, reacted to the psychological backlash and earned a third place that is worth pure gold, after Quartararo has not collected any points. In Borgo Panigale they row with all their strength on the success of the Piedmontese rider, at his disposal the best bike of the moment and the brand colleagues ready to sacrifice themselves for the common cause of Ducati. The drivers’ title has been missing since 2007, too long, and the top management wants to put an end to the fast.
Pecco Bagnaia predestined Ducati
In the GP of Thailand Johann Zarco preferred not to attempt the attack on Pecco Bagnaia, in order not to jeopardize his race for the championship. Gigi Dall’Igna went to the Pramac Racing box to thank the Frenchman, Davide Tardozzi explains why Jack Miller did not do the same. “Jack was as always very brave in these conditions“, He told the microphones of AS. “Miller did not do what Zarco did because he is 40 points behind and was 0.7 seconds behind Oliveira“.
In the next races the points will also be earned with the dropper, it will be a final sprint pulled to the limit, except for other twists. In Ducati, as early as the Misano race, they asked not to carry out dangerous maneuvers on Pecco Bagnaia and not to put a spanner in the works. Request that Johann Zarco and Marco Bezzecchi have respected so far, while Enea Bastianini in San Marino, Aragon and Motegi hasn’t thought twice about putting himself in front of Pecco.
As long as the drivers are arithmetically in the running for the world title they will not respect any team order. But in Valencia a lot could change: “If Pecco needs Jack in the last race, I think he will definitely help him. Instead here Miller had to think about his possibilities“, Concluded team manager Davide Tardozzi. It will be a glowing MotoGP season finale: “I will die on a circuit“, He concluded ironically.
