MotoGP, Mugello GP. The results of the race: victory for Bagnaia, fall for Bastianini

In the end, the Ducatis didn’t win Mugello (they had five lined up in front of everyone at the start), but Bagnaia’s victory is the most important news for the Bolognese house. Pecco regains confidence, consistency and even three positions in the standings where he is now he is fourth at 41 points behind Quartararo. The Frenchman put in a patch as big as his Yamaha, which on the fast Mugello circuit suffered from the difference in power, but in the other sectors of the Tuscan track the Diablo made a difference recovering precious tenths. A decent start allowed him to immediately fight for the top positions. Finding himself elbowing with the couple Bezzecchi-Mariniwith the other surprise By Giannantonio. Among the Ducatis, the French made his way with his class, while Bezzecchi savored the thrill of leading a MotoGP race (for at least one third of the race). A strange ranking, almost embarrassing for the men in the ranking, all chasing rookies or a little more (Marini is in the second season in the top class). “The best race of my career – the French commented happily -. I got the start right and I did overtake that I hadn’t been able to since the beginning of the year “, but against Bagnaia he could hardly do anything. Pecco was almost perfect: started badly, ninth on the first lap, he stitched up in a few laps with an incredible fury. He struggled only with Di Giannantonio, a great striker, but in the sixth lap he was second behind Bezzecchi, passed three laps later. He kept Quartararo at bay, who in the meantime had freed himself from the other Ducati riders, keeping a second margin on his wrist. It would have been an almost perfect party for Ducati if Bastianini hadn’t fallen, on the fourteenth lap. The Romagna seems to be condemned to a kind of curse: either he wins or he can’t see the podium not even from a distance. His race had started uphill with a bad start, which forced him to recover from twelfth position. He had recovered, as usual, more effective in the second part of the race, the podium was no longer a mirage. Everything useless. Overall, a positive balance remains for Borgo Panigale (with the confirmation of Bezzecchi and Marini, respectively fifth and sixth at the finish). As well as for Aprilia that with Aleix Espargaró got the fourth third place in a row (hardly any news anymore). Waiting for Vinales, twelfth, Noale can look forward to his future with confidence. Unlike the Suzuki who closed the trip to Tuscany with a double zero (both fallen Mir is Rins). He was saved Marc Marquez, after all. A tenth place that two years ago would have caused a scandal, but which, after the announcement of the fourth operation, has a different flavor. This will be his last Grand Prix for a long time.
