MotoGP San Marino: Balance is everything

Pecco Bagnaia gewinnt in Misano

When half the rider field is out in Moto2, it’s slippery. The conditions in MotoGP were ideal from the outside. Sun, no clouds and dry. But the Misano track is by the sea and there it can be slippery even in good conditions. Right at the start there were so many crashes that you couldn’t really keep up. Right at the start there was a race accident between Johann Zarco, Pol Espargaró and Michele Pirro. Then Miller, who was in the lead, crashed. Shortly afterwards, Marco Bezzecchi also crashed. Both riders were able to resume the race. They all lost their balance and slid out.

Pecco Bagnaia found his balance and led the race. The Ducati factory rider showed a flawless performance, even if it became exciting again at the end. Because Enea Bastianini worked lap after lap to the leading Bagnaia. The Gresini rider stuck to the rear wheel at the end and made an attempt to take the lead shortly before the end. Bastianini made a mistake and in the end he was 0.034 seconds off the winner Pecco Bagnaia.

With this victory, Pecco Bagnaia achieved something that no Ducati rider has ever managed before in MotoGP – four wins in a row. After Assen, Silverstone, Spielberg and now Misano, he managed this sensation. With his victory, Bagnaia climbed to second place in the world championship. He is now only 30 points behind Fabio Quartararo – which means the world championship is open again.
