Puig’s madness and the mid-season excellence awards

Our famous companion La Gazzetta dello Sport », the sports newspaper with the pink pages, made interesting calculations about the performances of the pilots in the middle of the season, a little more, we have already done 11 GPs, which affect the stars Quartararo, Bagnaia, Aleix Espargaro but also Marini. , Bezzecchi and Vinales…
In terms of wins, three tied with Quartararo, Bagnaia and Bastianini. Three wins each. With an important point, Bastia won at the beginning of the season and Bagnaia at the end of this first part of the year… Which can be an Indian sign, to be confirmed at Silverstone and Austria in August. However, Bastia and Bagnaia did not get any podiums other than their wins, unlike Quartararo… Their six wins from eleven GPs allow Ducati to lead the constructors’ standings…
Precisely, in this issue, Quartararo adds not only three victories but six podiums in total. His global leadership is therefore logical and above all brilliant! Aleix Espargaro occupies the second place in this ranking, logically also the main rival of Quartararo in the general. Five podiums, including a victory, then we find Zarco, who is third, let’s remember, even with many points behind the first two… For lack of victories of course.
Let’s go to the pole positions, with master Bagnaia. Four poles on the clock, ahead of Jorge Martin and Aleix Espargaro who have won two. Ducati, again, is the richest brand on the pole, the Italian brand has eight of the eleven GPs!
We know and it has been proven that for a title, what counts as much as wins is consistency. It is Aleix Espargaró who is the prize for excellence, he has scored in the eleven GPs at the beginning of the season. ! Quartararo and Binder scored points in ten races, due to crashes.
An interesting calculation, that of the number of kilometers traveled in GP and therefore without accidents and without breakdowns… The two best drivers at this point are Marini, brother of Rossi and Aleix Espargaro, both of whom did the 1234 km of GP, it’s a total of eleven races contested so far… As a result, Marini comes out of anonymity, it’s probably hard to be Dottore’s brother, even if you don’t have the same name… In short, congratulations. to (half) brother…
Among the km contested at the head of the race, Bagnaia is the best with 378 km as leader.… Quartararo has 323 km in the lead, Jack Miller has 108 on the clock. We know that apart from Quartararo, the other two are far behind in terms of points, so the strategy is not to be in front all the time at the expense of sometimes numerous falls… The test, Bastianini has as many victories as Bagnaia , three but only 84km ahead, is the right progression strategy at the right time, unfortunately Bastia have also had poor performances and are one point behind Bagnaia in the overall…
Naturally we go to the fastest laps of the race, Fabio Quartararo has four on the clock.r, Bagnaia three, Bastia and Aleix Espargaro two. And each of them has won at least once in the first eleven GPs, speed in the race is not always synonymous with the title… Sometimes it is anyway… As long as you are consistent, always the same rule.. .
We end with a sad record, that of falls… Certainly Bezzecchi eA solid debutant, second in Assen had to be done, but fifteen crashes is the record for this start of the season and it’s his… Bastianini is fourteen years old, Alex Márquez with twelve, Jorge Martín eleven, Pol Espargaro and Marc Márquez ten, not to mention, we started our report of the day on this topic, Honda has a bad team manager but also a failed cycle part…
Less fall? Vinaleswithout fabric in the Aprilia, with his first podium in Assen, it may be the return of the good times for this rider who often feels bad about himself…
Come ten more GPs, certainly Quartararo is the leader and much better, staying one can be difficult…
