MotoGP Pecco Bagnaia Ducati: “You always have to celebrate a victory, Valentino Rossi taught me”

Things were turning fast in MotoGP and Pecco Bagnaia was able to see it in Jerez in the context of a Spanish Grand Prix that he dominated. After crushing the classification, he controlled Fabio Quartararo in the race to record his first victory of the season. Who would call others, because what was said on the edge of the abyss on the handlebars of a questionable GP22 has thus found the favorite costume for the title, which had been cut during the winter holidays. The Italian takes stock before thinking about the next test that will be the French Grand Prix, on a track in Le Mans that could be a justice of the peace …

Weather in Pecco Bagnaia relaunched in this 2022 season offering to the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez a convincing victory. The way it was obtained was reminiscent of the Weather in Bagnaia from the end of last season and who we no longer believe in before his feverish start to the campaign. His demonstration was such that we forgot his execution with such a sore shoulder from Portimao that it had been carefully examined, leaving the idea of ​​a package floating.

About this situation and this investment, the officer Ducati commented: ” now I have to rest my shoulder. I was fed up with painkillers. I’m going to have dinner with friends, because you always have to celebrate a victory. Valentino Rossi taught me that. He is always very present and when he is not into motoring, he is one of the first to write to me “So much for the human side, so important for the crew Jack Miller who also thanked Pasini to support him during this sixth meeting of the year. ” It was the right time to change explained the pilot Ducati at the Corriere della Sera. ” If I had lost more points, it would have been difficult “.

Head back to his place, Weather in Bagnaia made peace with the GP22, much to the delight of the staff Ducati : ” we fought too hard, despite the hard work. In Portimao we were already fast, but we couldn’t prove it. In Jerez we started well and adjusted our bike to perfection. It is a result that reflects our level, the strength of the team and my leadership. “.

Pecco Bagnaia: We need a new test on difficult circuits such as Barcelona, ​​Le Mans and Assen

He adds: ” I realized that this bike had to be a little different. It took me a while to figure it out, but when I stopped trying to adapt, we started to get better. The GP22 is a smoother motorcycle to drive with the acceleratorbut on narrow roads it is much more efficient, more agile and closes the lines well, it is a good step forward “.

The feeling of being discovered gives me a lot of confidence »Ends the Italian who now looks at them 33 points to return championship. ” This Desmosedici can go very well anywhere. We were faster. We have certainly taken a step forward. But it will be necessary to try again on hard circuits such as Barcelona, ​​Le Mans and Assen. We are all aware of this. The potential for victory is there, last year I was there to gain experience, this time we have to start constantly leading. In Jerez, we have a good base. And then in Bologna, everyone works like crazy to give us the best “.

In this Andalusian victory, the head of Ducati Corse Gigi Dall’Igna commented: ” Pecco really made an amazing career and no doubt this victory has a special meaning for us. After the incredible classification, it was also important to be able to do well in the race. Of course, he could have done well in Portugal too, but it was a pleasure to see him fit and fight for victory again. We are very satisfied because we have finally been able to demonstrate the true potential of our bike. Jack also had a good race and up to five laps of the finish line he was fighting for the podium. Congratulations again to Pecco and thank you to all the staff of Ducati Corse for their work! »
